For the fashion folk among us, more often than not the first thought upon receiving an invitation of any kind is ‘What am I going to wear?’. And when it comes to a summer wedding, the sartorial situation is enough to get any fashionista into a tizzy. You’ve got to look smart, avoid upsetting the bride and keep comfort at the forefront (it’s a long day after all). You’ve got to consider the weather stresses, who you’re going to bump into and of course, your quest to being the best-dressed guest. With a summer of weddings ahead of us many of us find WhatsApp groups overflowing with dress-related questions and advice and it’s about time we provided some answers. 

With a shift in trends and tradition, weddings are no longer the straightforward affair they once were. These days they tend to be much more relaxed which only makes the dress code all the more confusing for guests. Instead of getting stressed about it, we’re ready to flip the narrative and look at it as an opportunity to have more fun with our wedding guest style for the day. In saying that, know your audience and their boundaries. Now may not be the best time to stage a total style rebellion. This isn’t about you after all – harsh but true. 

This summer, in particular, we’re feeling satin and tulle, puff sleeves and pastel power suits plus the accessories game has never looked so good. Think heeled sandals, decadent earrings and miniature bags fit for just the essentials. On the colour front, trends are on the move as powder blues make moves away from the bridal party and on to the guests, bright pink has become one of the biggest wedding guest trends (thank you, Killing Eve and Molly Goddard) and serious sunshine shades have started ruling our occasionwear wardrobe. 

This wedding season get ready to take wedding guest style into a league of its own with our top picks to help you shop ‘til you drop.
