What to Wear to a Wedding: Sustainable Custom Guests’ Dresses

It’s officially wedding season again and the weddings of 2022 are set to be the most remarkable yet! The postponed nuptials and lockdown engagements are finally going ahead this year so if you’ve already saved the date, the next thing to figure out is what to wear. Choosing what to wear as a wedding guest isn’t as easy as you think. Not only do you want to look wedding appropriate, but you also want something that you can continuously wear through the spring and summer time.

From nuptials in a church, on the beach, in a back garden or the countryside, there’s a wedding guest dress to suit each setting as well as your body shape. Take your pick from a selection of mini, midi and maxi dresses to dress up or down to reflect the wedding atmosphere. We all know that comfort is key so pick an elegant design that makes you feel good especially if you’re celebrating late into the night.

Flowing midi dresses are particularly popular when it comes to weddings. It’s extremely flattering length hitting the mid-calf helps to elongate your frame.

There’s an abundance of prints and colours to suit the season and climate of the wedding, from animal prints to florals, polka dots and abstract designs. V-necks, scoop necks and square necks pair well with narrow straps, puff sleeves and flutter sleeves. Play it safe and opt for a dress with sleeves for an outdoor wedding as the weather can be unpredictable.

Bring a little romance to your outfit with ruffles, florals and lace in spring colours of pale blues, creams and sunset oranges. Fabrics like tulle and chiffon work beautifully at adding texture and volume when gathered into tiers or accented at the hem and cuff.

A-line maxis drape beautifully to show off the whimsical fabric and design. Pair it with a half up-do hairstyle for a sophisticated look.

Another favourite is slinky slip dresses which are faultless when it comes to wedding guest dressing but, make sure you don’t go for a white or ivory colour. There’s something about a classic 90s neckline, v-neck or cowl neck that sits perfectly well with fine straps and falls over the silhouette of the body. Its feminine, effortlessly chic and timeless. If you want a more figure-hugging number, a fitted bodice, hips and a leg slit adds a touch of sexiness.
