The Wedding Guest Edit

The Wedding Guest Edit

Wedding season is coming up and I spent the last few weeks scouring the internet for guest attire so you have plenty of options to choose from.

And hey, while the dress code is often up to your interpretation, it can be hard to find the right dress for the occasion. To help narrow your search, this blog post is divided into three common wedding themes.

Reminder: don’t underestimate the power of buying a dress you can wear to future events, too! 

For The Occasion

This first round up is for the most common wedding attire request. Oftentimes you’ll find a wedding invitation reading: dressy, formal, or cocktail attire.

Think: modern venue with a beautiful garden, terrace that overlooks the countryside or city, a converted barn in the mountains, and much more. 

Here are a few choices that could fit any of those descriptors.

Backyard Wedding

If you have the space for it, a backyard wedding is the perfect way to keep your special day intimate, close to home, and low-key. When I think of this type of setting, I think of wearing something unique or flowy. Here are a few choices that will look amazing under all of those twinkly lights :)

Getting dressed for a wedding is just the beginning of a night you’re going to remember for years and years to come. Some may even say forever 😉

Happy shopping!
