Spring Wedding Guest Dresses for Tall Women

Lean into spring with a floral wedding guest dress that is designed to flatter your curves and fit your frame. From high quality embroidered details, to three dimensional appliques, to statement prints, nothing says spring like floral detailing. Pastel colours such as greens, blues, and pinks bring a feminine touch, and opulent, flowing silhouettes guarantee both comfort, and flawless photographs.

Consider longer lengths and sleeves for early Spring weddings to accommodate the cooler nights - or bring a shrug or pashmina to cover up later in the evening. Pair your spring wedding guest dress with a pair of short block heels for extra comfort, and to create a seamless silhouette when you step into the venue.

Tall Dresses for Summer Weddings

Celebrate sunny days and soirées in a statement tall summer wedding guest dress. Opt for flowing silhouettes, lightweight fabrics, and pops of bold colours and jewel tones to bring the sunshine with you wherever you step. Fun prints like polka dots and colour blocking are perfect for party days, and bright hues are certainly dancefloor-approved.

Style your summer wedding guest dress with a pair of strappy heels that highlight your long legs, perfect for bringing an elevated level of formality to your outfit.

Tall Dresses Autumn Weddings

Similarly to spring, autumn weddings can experience the same heat as summer, as well as the icy chill of winter. Sleeves and opulent, longer lengths are perfect to keep a little covered up without the commitment of an extra layer. Bring a cover-up or light jacket if the weather is a concern - especially into the late evenings.

Early autumn weddings are a great opportunity to wear lightweight fabrics as the weather will hopefully still be warm. Think classic satins or flowing georgette fabrics, perfect for wearing solo or layering. In late autumn, opt for thicker fabrics, such as premium, woven materials or structured organdie. Autumn is the perfect time to embrace an autumnal colour palette, with rich, earth tones. Deep browns and brilliant reds, as well as muted greens are ideal for this time of year.

Winter Tall Wedding Guest Dresses

Beat the chill in a tall maxi dress for winter weddings. Thinking practically, the best dresses for winter weather include sleeves and long skirts, as well as thicker materials like wovens and jacquard. A winter colour palette can be deep, dark shades like blacks and greys, or icy, cool toned shades like silvers and blues. Both options bring a timeless class to your look. However, make sure to check with the bride if your dress of choice is close to white. Style with some contemporary closed-toe heels for a wintery look that will take you from wedding guest days to upcoming parties and occasions.

Alternative Wedding Outfits for Tall Women

If a dress is not something you normally reach for, why not opt for an alternative wedding outfit? Browse formal jumpsuits and glamorous co-ord sets for a unique, unexpected look that will take you seamlessly from the ceremony to the cocktail hour.

Style with some statement shoes that add a little shimmer.
