FAQs

What should a guest wear to a wedding?

It goes without saying, but a wedding tends to be a formal occasion with a formal dress code. However, it might be worth having a look at the invitation to see if there's an unconventional dress code or a requested colour to wear by the bride and groom.

There are a few things to consider when finding a dress to wear as a wedding guest. Consider the season. If it's an autumn or winter wedding, long-sleeve options with richer colours will keep you warm as well as stylish. For a spring or summer wedding, anything from florals to pastel shades will work well here.

What not to wear to a wedding as a guest?

As a wedding guest, there are two particular colours you should avoid - white and black.

As you can imagine, white is reserved for the bride. Lighter shades that could be mistaken for white should be avoided as well, such as cream, champagne and pale pastel colours.

Black tends to be associated with funerals, so wearing black can be a tricky one. You might be able to get away with darker shades like navy for a winter wedding, though.

While you should be dressing for a formal occasion, don't wear anything that draws attention away from the bride. And, try not to choose the same colours as the bridal party. You can do this by asking around or taking hints about the colour scheme from wedding invites.

Final tips to remember when choosing a wedding guest dress:

Fashion experts at Karen Millen have revealed top tips on ensuring you dress to impress without stealing the limelight from a bride at her wedding. 'The main goal for a wedding guest is to blend in, but this does not mean your outfit has to be dull and drab,' they say.

Here are some of their top tips when finding the perfect dress:
