As the celebration season closes in and our social calendars begin to fill up, it’s the time of year when we inevitably begin to fret over what to wear to the various events on our schedules. Between the dress code briefs and weather considerations, knowing what to wear to a wedding can be a particularly tricky feat. Aside from the obvious rules of not wearing white or dressing to upstage the bride you should always opt for a dress that makes you look great but is comfortable enough for you to let loose on the dance floor.
Whether it’s a casual courtyard soiree, or a regal black-tie affair, if you’re in need of a little inspiration, keep scrolling as we reveal our round up of wedding guest dresses to suit all tastes.
