Long Summer Wedding Guest Dresses

A more classic approach, long wedding guest dresses maintain a high level of formality. Whether bold colour blocking is more your style, or delicate florals speak to you, our summer wedding guest dresses will see you seamlessly from a morning ceremony to the last dance.

It is Summer after all, so opt for fun colours and dresses with lots of personality. Add a pashmina or cropped jacket to block out the breeze and protect against the evening chill, and don’t forget your dancing shoes.

Short Summer Wedding Guest Dresses

If hot weather is forecast, a mini dress is the way to go. Dancefloor-friendly, hot weather appropriate, yet still elevated enough for a wedding, our mini wedding guest dresses are perfect for clinking champagne flutes and celebrating your loved ones.

From unique floral detailing, to flowing fits, to figure hugging silhouettes, to three dimensional accents, our short wedding guest dresses may have less fabric than their maxi length counterparts, but they carry just as much of an impact. Ideal for styling with statement heels and a large fascinator, mini summer wedding guest dresses are perfect for warm days and balmy evenings.

Summer Wedding Guest Jumpsuits

If dresses are not your usual style, or if you’re just on the hunt for something a little different, a jumpsuit is not only wedding appropriate, but ultra re-wearable for future events and occasions.

Relaxed, wide leg fits meet figure hugging silhouettes, high, halter necklines meet one shoulder, asymmetric designs, and sleek, minimal designs meet dramatic draping and bold prints. Jumpsuits should never be overlooked when occasion wear shopping, as they are the most comfortable yet still impactful counterpart to a formal dress.

Summer Wedding Guest Outfits

Keeping things classic, a two piece set or co-ordinating set is also an exemplary option for summer weddings. Whether drawn toward a blouse and trousers set, a clean tailored waistcoat, or a formal skirt set, co-ords for wedding guest outfits are often overlooked but always highly complimented. The differing layers make for a summer-friendly look, as you can amend your outfit when the sun comes out or the breeze picks up, and you can easily shed a layer once it’s time to hit the dancefloor.

Summer Wedding Guest Accessories

No wedding guest look is complete without a fascinator or headdress. Experience elevated occasion wear in a large fascinator, complete with three dimensional accents and sheer mesh detailing, or keep your approach more low-key with a jewelled headband. Match the tones to your (or your partner’s) outfit and prepare for posey pictures.
