Recently, I’ve had a bunch of friends texting me to find out outfit ideas for weddings on their calendars. With a mix of budgets, dress codes, and destinations, I went on a deep dive through my favorite brands and retailers to share my ideas with them. If you are similarly thinking about what to wear at a wedding reception, I’ve pooled my recs here to make your shopping easy.
I think a great wedding guest dress can range from a simple staple to a trend-forward piece that still feels wedding-appropriate, so I’ve included picks that fall into each of those categories. From classic tube dresses and pretty lace-trimmed satin slips to trendy colors like buttercream yellow and pieces with major cutouts, you’ll find plenty of options here. The one thing they all have in common? A fashion editor’s stamp of approval. Here, shop the wedding guest dresses on my radar.
