During the corona pandemic, some wedding celebrations had to be canceled or postponed. Gradually, future couples are allowed to plan smaller celebrations again and invite guests. But how do you dress up at the wedding as a guest? Here are some suggestions for outfits that are elegant and fashionable and can also be worthwhile for other occasions.
For women, an elegant dress is of course suitable as a wedding guest outfit: it immediately looks chic and well dressed. Midi dresses in particular look festive if they have a classic cut and few extras such as sequins or flounces. But be careful: the color of the wedding dress (usually white, cream or ivory) should not be the same. If there is no dress code and you still have no idea what to wear, you can also refer to the bridesmaid dress trends. In addition to midi dresses, festive cocktail dresses that are not too colorful or voluminous are always a good choice.
And: your dress should not be black either. It shouldn't be too glamorous or bulky either, so that the bride is still the center of attention. Instead of extravagance, a casual, simple elegance is the order of the day; choose small highlights instead of too many accessories and jewellery. A great alternative to a dress is a skirt-top combo in light colors, which looks fresh and casual, especially at a summer wedding.
Elegant jumpsuits are also suitable as an outfit for a wedding. You should make sure that the look is not too colorful and that there are not too wild prints on the trend part. Pumps or sandals also go well with the jumpsuit, mules can also be combined with a chic outfit. A small bag and some jewelery complete the wedding guest outfit.
As a man, you can of course go to the wedding as a guest in a suit. It doesn't have to be the classic in dark blue, with black dress shoes, a stiff white shirt and tie. It can be a bit looser – and still remain chic: a jacket or blazer (which should of course fit well) made of linen in a light color, with a loose shirt, dark suit trousers and optionally chic, clean sneakers or lace-ups are also chic Wedding guest outfit that doesn't look too stuffy and forced but is elegant and fashionable.
Of course, these outfit ideas for wedding guests are only suitable if there is no clear dress code to follow. If there is one, this naturally also applies to your wedding guest outfit. The following applies here: If the invitation states that guests should dress “casually”, you are quite free in your choice of outfit. The dress code "Black Tie" is an official festive occasion after 6 p.m. You should dress stylishly and elegantly and instead of going for a casual-chic look, wear an evening dress and a tuxedo. Otherwise, focus on the bride and groom and the location to find a suitable look.
