Where to Buy Wedding Guest Dresses?

Having a browse on your favourite high street shops is a great place to start when it comes to finding amazing wedding guest dresses. Not only do they tend to be affordable (an important factor if you have multiple weddings in your diary!), but you’ll also find a wide variety of colours and styles to suit all kinds of tastes and celebrations. 

A few popular picks include Rixo, ASOS, Pretty Lavish, Phase Eight and Debenhams. They have dedicated wedding guest dress edits that will help guide you on what to wear. 

How to Dress for a Wedding as a Guest?

When choosing the right wedding guest outfit we have a few tips to from Megan Watkins, Head Stylist at SilkFred, to help:

  • White is a total no-no. Doesn’t that go without saying?
  • "Pick something you will wear again and again," Megan says.
  • Don’t upstage the couple. By all means, be experimental, but don’t go too OTT.
  • Don’t wear anything too skimpy. The couple’s grandparents may be there, remember.
  • Be bright and colourful in the summer! The photographs will look all the better for it. "Go for a bold colour like sunshine yellow or ruby red," suggests Megan. 
  • Don’t be too casual. You’ve got to make an effort. Megan explains that you shouldn't be afraid to add flair to your outfit, "whether that be through accessories or embellishments." 
  • Take a pair of flats! Who can really dance all night in heels?
