Have you been invited to a summer wedding? Are you already panicking about what you are going to wear?
Never fear, we here at Shoppersbase have put together ten of the best wedding guest dresses to inspire you. So even if you don’t pick one, perhaps you’ll get inspiration from our choices.
Here’s what we loved:
- Dickins & Jones Floral Fit and Flare Dress – £62.30
This is a real show-stopper and the fit and flare style will suit hour-glass figures best. Material is a light-weight 98% cotton so great on a warmer day, and we love the bold contrasting colours and floral print. And you can machine wash it!
Sizes 8 – 20
- Phase Eight Marguerite Print Dress – £110
This is a fitted frock that works best on tall, athletic (straight up and down, no curves) figures. What we love most is the contrasting panelling detail that separates the floral print, very classy and flattering. It is fully lined and fastens at the back with a zip.
Sizes 6 – 20
- Wallis Floral Ivory Printed Dress – £45.00
Another dress that works best on curvy hour-glass figures, we love the natural colours in this fit and flare dress. The side tie detail is very flattering as in cinches you in. Team with matching accessories such as red heels and handbag.
Sizes 8 – 20
- Sugarhill Boutique Peach Hatty Wild Flower Dress – £68
A great dress for younger guests as it is very romantic and designed for the youthful. The Hatty Wild Flower Dress features a classic shape that suits all figures but what we love is the modern print that really brings this dress bang up to date. And talking of the print, it is exclusive to Sugarhill, so it will never be seen on another dress.
Sizes 8 – 16
- Monsoon Jasmine Tunic Dress – £99
This tunic dress is perfect for anyone who has a larger tummy as the loose, fluid fit flows over all lumps and bumps. We love the unusual print which features florals and swans and embellishments of sparkling sequins. No lining to ensure the fluidity, there’s a round neckline with three-quarter length sleeves and a zip fastening at the side.
Sizes – 8 – 22
- Per Una Cotton Rich Floral Fit & Flare Prom Dress – £55.00
We couldn’t believe the price of the dress, especially as it’s from Per Una. We like the dark purple which is unusual for a summer wedding but great if you want to be a bit different and stand out from the norm. The fit and flare style features a back zip and a round neck with a bustier type chest. Gorgeous flower print in deep blues and mauves.
Sizes 8 – 24
- Floral Printed Pencil Dress – £26.60
This dress is perfect for older guests of the bride as it features some very pretty extra details, such as the black lace on the shoulders. We also love the colour combination of ivory and pink floral print and the pencil style is a classic design that suits ladies of a certain age. The material contains elastane making it nice and flexible.
Sizes 6 – 22
- Eliza J Sleeveless Chiffon Floral Midi with Belt – £66
The colours on this dress are what caught our attention, gorgeous muted shades of beige and jade make this dress seem almost oriental. We love the way the colours have been contrasted, with the flowers in the beige shade and the background green, sounds weird but it really works. Fastens with a zip at the back. Not machine washable.
Sizes 6 – 20
- Floral Print Wrap Dress – £65
A very classic looking dress here that works really well at any wedding. Great for taller ladies as the length of this dress is long – 116cm. Features a nipped in waist and panelling detail which is super flattering, and the fabric is super soft.
Sizes 6 – 16
- Monsoon Lettie Tunic Dress – £79
We had to feature this dress as it is personifies what makes a great dress at weddings. The oversized print of poppies is perfect. You can get away with larger prints at functions such as wedding. Smaller prints tend to work better in office environments. Bright but natural colours are good for family events and natural prints such as florals, eaves etc. Steer clear from geometric shapes and unnatural colours such as neon. This silk dress features a flattering wide neckline and three-quarter length sleeves.
Sizes 8 – 18
