So you said yes to the invite(s), secured a plus one, and maybe even booked your hotel room. Now you’re probably thinking about all the wedding guest outfits you have to put together. Wherever the RSVP takes you, we rounded up no-fail outfit combos that will have you ready for celebrating your loved ones’ nuptials—no chiffon or sequins needed, unless you want ’em.
Headed to a black-tie event where only a formal dress will do? We’ve got options. Are you jetting off to an exotic location that requires multiple party dresses—and maybe a few extra styles if you’re making it an extended vacation? Prepare to be inspired.
Once you’ve locked down your looks, all that’s left for you to do is pick up a gift from their registry, pencil in your beauty sessions, and pack your weekender with your favorite wedding guest outfits. (Okay, that and maybe an extra pair of comfy shoes.)
A cocktail dress—be it cold-shoulder, sleeveless, ruched, or pleated—doesn’t have to read after-party only. You can absolutely rock shorter hemlines in the day and still have it feel occasion-worthy. Garden venues, beach receptions, and rooftop engagements are all ideal scenarios for showing up in a mini. Thanks to ruffles and flutter details, Farm Rio’s tropical-print dresses capture that summer wedding feeling to a tee and, when paired with unfussy yet thoughtful accessories like Heimat Atlantica’s woven bag and Mejuri’s dainty hoop earrings, look effortless for any ceremony.
