Wedding guest outfits can be a nightmare to get right. There’s the stress of not outshining the bride (white is a serious no-go), finding something both comfortable enough to dance the night away in and smart enough for the occasion, and then there’s the worry of making sure no-one else is going to turn up in the same frock as you.
And as if that’s not enough, there’s the worry of how you’re going to fork out for an amazing outfit as well as a wedding present, transport, drinks to last you a very, very long day and a hotel to end the night. So, to save you the trouble, we’ve found the very best, affordable pieces on the high street right now and put them together to make six seriously amazing wedding guest outfits. Aren’t we good to you?!
From H&M and M&S to Zara and Coast, the high street is chock-full of wedding guest outfit options. Thanks to floral pastel bandeau dresses, lace culottes and chic shell tops, nailing wedding season without breaking the bank has never been easier. That said, one can never rely on the British weather to hold out for an entire day, so a classic cropped jacket or traditional cotton scarf is a no-brainer. Throw over your get-up for a Kate Middy-esque look and protect yourself (and your new garms) from unpredictable weather in the process.
As for footwear, our edit of the best block heels, courts, strappy sandals and Manolo Blahnik-inspired heels are guaranteed to complete your wedding guest outfits in one stylish swoop. Whether heels are your thing or not, our edit has something for everyone – and each pair are timeless enough to wear again and again.
All in all, if you’ve got a wedding in the pipeline, this edit is your ticket to wedding guest outfit perfection. Happy shopping ladies!
