Finding a dress to attend a wedding as a guest is arguably one of the most difficult shopping endeavors the average woman goes through. I’d put it right up there with bathing suit shopping (yikes!) and the finding the elusive perfect fitting pair of jeans. Well, it just so happens that I am a self-proclaimed wedding guest dress expert lol! Why? In short, the year 2013.
In 2013 I attended 7 weddings in a 6 month period. You read that right; seven! Two were on opposite sides of the country; one of which required taking a float plane to get to, and the other a ferry boat. In short, 2013 was insane and I became very good at selecting dresses to wear as wedding guest!
Today as we ramp up into summer wedding season, I thought I would share my top picks for dresses that work for a guest at a summer wedding. I have linked them all up, broken down by category, below.
Last thing – because you don’t always want to spend the money on a dress to wear as a guest at weddding, the last category is “rental dresses” from Rent the Runway. If you’ve never used this service before, it is a great way to get new dresses for one-time events.
