Summer is the season of weddings so it’s no doubt that some of you may have a few lined up for the upcoming months, but even if it’s one wedding or ten that you’ll be attending, this guide will be sure to give you some inspiration and choices to wear for that special occasion.
1. Wrap dresses
Wrap dresses have quickly gone into style in the past seasons and its popularity is evident in the fact that they can be found everywhere. This makes dress shopping easier and harder. Easier in that you have an abundance of choice between colours, styles and prints but also more difficult as with so many different wrap dresses out there, the choice can become quite daunting. The wrap dress we’ve chosen saves you this hassle as the colour is neutral and feminine, with a sexy slit and a low-back for that extra show of skin.
2. Floral prints
A no-brainer for any summer occasion, floral prints are of course the failsafe option when it comes to wedding guest dressing. To stand out among the crowd of guests and add that pop of something special, try incorporating different materials such as mesh or tulle with your floral prints which will help you be the wedding guest who makes a statement.
Frills are all the rage right now so make the most of this trend this summer as a wedding guest. They’re a fun way to add extra shape and movement to your dress and add a super feminine touch that’s perfect for a wedding. Watch your dress sway and move with you as you dance the night away celebrating the happy couple.
4. Halter neck
Playing with necklines can really amp up your style for occasion dressing and halter necks are perfect for summer weddings. They manage to show off more skin on your shoulders and aren’t the usual choice of necklines for wedding guests, you can stand out whilst showing off your glowing skin. The dress we’ve linked is a high low halter neck dress which adds another element to the dress and will look beautiful as it flows as you move.
Colour wise, pastels are on trend this summer. Think softer colours and lighter tones for this one. Whilst you may go straight for a bold red or blue dress in an attempt to stand out and opt out of pastels since they belong to a paler family of colours, they can still help you achieve a statement if you choose dresses with colours vibrant enough whilst still being pastels.
As a classic wedding guest style of dress, you can be sure that you’ll see more than one or two lace dresses at any nuptials you’ll be attending. This doesn’t necessarily mean that you should stay away from lace for fear of getting lost in the crowd with it. If done right, a lace dress can still make you the most stylish guest of any wedding. The dress featured here is from Self Portrait, a brand known for their unique lace appliqué which is bolder than most. The raw lace hemline makes for more organic detail to the dress.

Sequins are one of the best ways to get people’s attention during events. You’ll be sparkling during the night under the dance floor lights, plus they really capture the essence of celebration. Be sure not to go overboard as there’s a danger of dressing inappropriately for a wedding if you go over the top with sequins.
