Searching for beautiful dresses for a wedding guest? You've come to the right place...

Wedding guest dresses are all over the high street, so if you’re looking for the perfect women’s dress to rock to that special occasion then it really doesn’t have to break the bank.

While the bride is busy looking through the best high street wedding dresses, you can have fun picking out your own wedding guest outfit.

Winter needs warmth. Fact. But that certainly doesn’t mean you have to compromise on style.

When it comes to colour, high street offerings might not be as bright as they would be in summer, but you can still jazz up your dress up with colourful accessories. Prints are a go-go, too – choose between everything from florals to animal print. And, don’t forget, you can always layer with tights and a smart jacket.


Wedding Guest Dresses: Maternity

Wedding Guest Outfits For Mothers

BUY NOW: Dress, £69, Marks & Spencer

Whether you’re the mother of the bride or groom, it’s important to look the part. You’ll want to appear smart, but on trend at the same time. Choose something long-sleeved and midi length for double demure vibes, or go for one or the other and add a sleek cropped cover-up. And trends? Keep them the same – think floral, pleats, or asymmetric hems- and you’re officially the most stylish mum around.

Wedding Guest Dresses For All Body Shapes

BUY NOW: £20, Boohoo Wrap Dress

Plus size wedding guest dresses are widely available. It can be hard to find a dress that properly flatters your figure, but the high street has really caught up.

Choose ruffle shoulders if you’re narrow, or go for a cinched style to highlight the waist and/or create the illusion of curves. If you’re athletic, avoid straight styles, and if not, be sure to highlight your assets.

There really is something for everyone.

Happy shopping!
