Wedding guest dresses and outfit ideas

It’s not just the bride who deserves to look good on the big day, so make sure you’re on the best dressed list with our top summer wedding guest dresses and outfit ideas…

Summer Wedding At The Beach
Animal Hanky Hem Dress // Tortoise Bead Necklace // Woven Strap Sandals // Rose Gold Sunglasses // Lace Clutch Bag

Beach Wedding Outfit

Whether it’s taking place at sunrise or sunset, a beach wedding under the sun is always a tricky one to dress for.

A free-flowing hanky hem dress is perfect for keeping cool during the sunkissed ceremony, in a chic monochrome animal print to complement your tan .

Pair it with a statement necklace, slip on sandals and chic oversized shades for effortless beach glamour.

Beach Wedding Make Up Tips

Prep like a pro with some SPF moisturiser to soothe any dehydrated skin, then apply a matte primer to help your makeup stay on and prevent unwanted shine.

Foundations can clog up holiday skin so opt for a tinted moisturiser or BB cream in a slightly darker shade to match your tan, or mix with a hint of shimmering bronzer to add some colour.

Waterproof mascara and eyeliner is a must to prevent any melted makeup in the all-important photos.

Summer Wedding In The City

City Wedding Outfit

When the nuptials are taking place at a chic city-based venue, you want to look perfectly polished for the occasion.

A bold printed dress paired with a glamorous fascinator and sparkling accessories is ideal for making a sleek statement on the big day.

Complete your slick city look with elegant heels and cat eye sunglasses.

City Wedding Make Up Tips

Lightly contour with some matte bronzer to define the cheekbones, highlighted with a luminous blush on the fullest part of the cheek.

Finish off your look with a coat of mascara, groomed eyebrows and your favourite red lipstick.

Summer Wedding In The Country

Country Wedding Outfit

A quaint country wedding demands some suitably ladylike attire, so turn to the ever-faithful floral dress.

Delicate blooms and pastel tones lend a vintage 50s vibe to proceedings and will suit the setting perfectly.

A floral midi dress is a modern take on country style so pair it with pointed court shoes, dainty jewellery and a clutch bag for a sophisticated summer wedding look.

Country Wedding Make Up Tips

Soft and pretty will complement the neutral shades in this look, so opt for a light base and neutral shimmer on the eyelids.

Add some colour to your cheeks with a rosy blush and matching pink/peach-toned lipstick with a hint of gloss.

Summer Wedding Exotic
Floral Maxi Dress // Raffia Clutch Bag // Diamante Arm Sunglasses // Flower Fascinator // Wedged Sandals

Exotic Wedding Outfit

If you’re jetting off to an exotic destination you’ll want to look as glamorous as your surroundings.

We’d recommend packing a showstopping maxi dress in hot summer shades paired with high wedged sandals and oversized sunglasses.

Raffia accessories and gold jewellery will set off this look to perfection.

Exotic Wedding Make Up Tips

Take the same tips on skin preparation and base from the beach wedding makeup above, but go all out glam when it comes to adding colour to your look.

Try a hot orange or coral lip colour and plenty of bronzer to fit with the exotic theme of your outfit.
