Wedding Guest Dresses So You Won’t Out-Do The Bride

Wedding season is year-round, but spring and summer tend to be the more popular wedding seasons. Have a wedding coming up? This means it’s time to buy your wedding guest dresses now! Wedding guest dresses can be a tricky thing because you need to stay cautious of a few things: you shouldn’t wear white (duh), you can’t match the bridal party’s color scheme, but you still need to look trendy and elegant. Below are some of my best picks for wedding guest dresses that would not out-do the bride, but they will definitely keep you looking sharp for the big day.

1. How Much I Care Midnight Blue Off-The-Shoulder Midi Dress

This stunning look is in the wedding guest dresses component of Lulu’s online clothing website. Lulu’s always has great clothes, and this elegant dress is proof of that. This look is so simple yet so flattering, as it hugs your body but flows out into a mermaid style at the bottom. It is off the shoulder which is always a great and classy fashion statement. You won’t out-do the bride in this dress as it is very plain but so gorgeous. You can spice up this look with gold or silver jewelry of your choosing. It’s really up to you on how you would style a dress like this, but anything works when it is a simple statement piece. This dress is available for only $52 and has some pretty remarkable reviews on the comfort and perfect fit it has!

2. Joined At The Hip Dress In Green

I absolutely love this look for a spring or summer wedding. It is pretty simple and it works so well because you could totally wear this dress to places other than a wedding. What’s better than getting more than one use out of a dress?! This dress is available on Hello Molly for $67 in all different sizes. It seems to be very flattering and the mint green color is a perfect pastel for a wedding. The ruched style of this dress plus the floral pattern is so fun and flirty. I definitely recommend this dress to anyone in need of wedding guest dresses that don’t out-do the bride.

3.  Azazie Collette Dress In Stormy

A lot of people might say wedding guest dresses should be short, but this isn’t necessarily true. If the bride says it is ok and as long as it doesn’t clash with the bridal party, I think a long dress is very appropriate to wear to a wedding. After some searching online, I found this stunning, elegant gown from Azazie, which is a wedding website that provides dresses for guests, brides, bridesmaids, and mothers of the bride. The dress is called the Collette dress, and it comes in all different colors. The color shown below is called Stormy, but they literally have over fifty colors to choose from! It is only $69, which is super affordable for a stunning gown like this one. I also love the high low effect in the front so you can show off some leg!

4. Schiffer Slip Midi Dress In Rust

I have too many good things to say about this dress. First off, it is absolutely beautiful. The color of this dress is so chic and in right now, the style is so figure-hugging but not too tight, and the cowl neck accentuates the chest area so much. The silk material adds so much class to the dress, making it a wonderful addition to your closet of wedding guest dresses. This dress is available on the Beginning Boutique website for $71.95, which is a great price for a dress this stunning. You could dress it up with jewelry and high shoes, or dress it down if need be. Totally your call! The model below has her eye makeup matching the dress, which would serve as a great look for a wedding. You wouldn’t take attention away from the bride, but you’ll still look fabulous.

5. VIP Treatment Red Strapless Skater Dress

This VIP Treatment Skater Dress is one of those wedding guest dresses that is a must buy. I mean, look at it! This dress is so flattering and show-stopping, for its bright red color and simple yet classy design brings a lot to the table. Skater dresses can sometimes be seen as too casual, but not in this case. This dress is elegant, for the styling of the top half of the dress is so flattering. This dress is available on Lulu’s for only $39, which is a dealbreaker in my opinion! It comes in various sizes and also in black, but for a wedding, I think red is the better option. You could dress it up with red lipstick and a sleek ponytail like the model has. Totally check out this dress!

6. Vince Camuto Popover Cocktail Dress

This Vince Camuto Popover dress is one of the most perfect wedding guest dresses, in my own personal opinion. It is a combination of classy, elegant, fun and full of style. The shoulder popover is absolutely gorgeous, and it can really make your collarbones pop and you won’t need to wear a necklace. Personally, I would wear my hair up with this dress to show off my bare shoulders. The dress is available on Nordstrom in black and pink, but pink is surely more suitable for a wedding. It comes in various number sizes and it is only $74. No matter your age, I think anyone could pull this dress off. It is the perfect level of clingy to your body, and reviews say it is super comfortable. Definitely check it out!
