Here’s my pick of bestsellers for the season ahead…


What To Wear To A Wedding As A Guest?

Feel Timeless

No matter the time of year, style or choice of colour,  you want your wedding guest outfit to feel evergreen and classic.  An elegant high-neck number will look just as good in photos in 30 years time. Why not try something in satin? 

Or perhaps an off-the-shoulder style will make you feel special. Take our Bardot frill midi, for example – it comes in a lovely scuba crepe fabric for a stretchy, body-hugging fit. This classic design comes in loads of gorgeous colours, from burgundy to teal. Pair with a metallic or nude heel and a simple clutch to finish off the look.

Have A Floral Moment

Whether it’s admiring the aisle arrangements or jumping for the bridal bouquet, flowers play a central role in weddings – so why not rock a floral wedding guest outfit? If blooms are your thing, the Wrap Front Butterfly Sleeve dress is a great option. With its vintage-inspired print, this romantic dress would be perfect for a country weekend wedding this spring. Cut with elegant elbow-length sleeves, it’s perfect for changing weather and has a cinching elastic waist for an extra flattering fit. 


Navy Printed Wrap Front Butterfly Sleeve Dress

Or, if you’re after something a little different, this floral tulle maxi dress is as versatile as it is beautiful. It’ll make an impact, no matter how you style it.

Feel Your Best

No matter your bust size, every wedding guest wants to feel confident in whatever they’re wearing. We have wedding guest outfit ideas that guarantee flattering fits and work for every body shape. For the bigger busted ladies, halter necklines give a great balance, as the straps spotlight your shoulders and call out your collarbones. Just make sure to pick the right design for you – personally, I love a little silk or satin


Halterneck Satin Midi Dress Navy

If you rock a smaller chest, I suggest highlighting a different b-word – your back. Sure, there’s no one-style-fits-all solution, but a backless dress adds a touch of elegance with little to no effort. You won’t be short on double takes, either.

Be Their Something Blue

There’s a special place in my heart for blue outfits on a wedding day. You know, something borrowed, something blue and all that jazz. 


For a burst of colour that doesn’t take away from the bride, why not try a baby blue dress? Decadent and feminine, baby blue is the perfect muted shade. Or, to take things up a notch, I suggest an embellished design. Who can say no to sparkles?

Jump Into A Jumpsuit

Not a huge fan of dresses? Say hello to the jumpsuit – dresses fun (most likely drunk) auntie. Fashion-forward and more flexible than the best man on the dance floor, jumpsuits are a great alternative to a full-skirted number.

Slip into the crane print jumpsuit for a one-and-done outfit that’ll have you feeling comfy from the ceremony to the reception. It’s designed with angel sleeves and a fitted waist for the perfect cinch, and this beautiful navy print sparks compliments every time. I’d throw in some white strappy sandals to round off the outfit.

Party In Print

Where better to do a stint in print than a wedding? When your social battery runs out, let a loud design do all the talking. I’m a huge fan of this bright green geo-print, it’s perfect for a sunny ceremony. Or, if you’re keen for something a bit different, I also love this contemporary twist on the classic leopard print.

Dress For Rain Or Shine

The British weather is many things – but it’s far from reliable. Even in a ‘summer’ wedding, a shower-free day isn’t a guarantee. If the clouds are looking questionable, I suggest opting for a light, long-sleeved design. 

With its eye-catching print and ruffle hem, this multiprint chiffon tea dress always stands out from the crowd. Thanks to its long sleeves and high neck, it’s the perfect option for unpredictable weather. Go for neutral heels to let the print do the talking, and expect “where’d you get that?” comments.

Feel Pretty In Pink

Being a Pink Lady is never a bad thing, ask Rizzo and the gals. If feminine pieces are your go-to for weddings. With its subtle light pink bodice and ruffle skirt, this piece offers an extra flowy style. Or, for a more out-there vibe, why not opt for this hot pink one-shoulder hot pink one-shoulder?
