Wedding season is officially upon us! It can be hard to find wedding guest dresses that fit the occasion, be it a garden wedding, formal wedding, etc. that you also want to wear beyond just the wedding. Today I’ve teamed up with Eliza J Dresses to share 4 dresses that be perfect as a wedding guest dress. (PS. If you’re a fan of these dresses, check out my other posts with Eliza J dresses. They are my favorite dress brand!)


Wedding Guest Dress 1: Floral Print Cocktail Dress

This is officially one of my favorite summer dresses! I love the slight tulip shape, and the floral pattern is gorgeous. This dress has a slightly satin finish, which makes it work just as well for a wedding guest dress at a garden wedding as it does a more formal wedding. Also – this dress has pockets, which we all know is generally a dress win lol, but especially so if you’re worried about getting emotional at wedding! You can have kleenex on you for any emotional moments! 🙂

This dress fits true to size; I’m wearing a size 6. It’s also long enough for all of us tall girls! I’m 5’8 and, as you an see, it hits just above my knee.

Wedding Guest Dress 2: Black Halter Dress

It used to be that black was a no-go for weddings; but lately more and more weddings are cocktail or formal attire and we are seeing more and more black dresses. This LBD would be perfect for a more formal wedding. It’s also a great dress to pick up for a wedding guest dress since it’s one you’ll be able to wear over and over again to events. This dress would even work for a office reception or party.

In case the amount of places you can wear this dress wasn’t enough, it’s actually on sale right now as well for 40% off!! 🙌🙌 The dress fits true to size (I’m wearing a 6). My metallic strappy heels also fit true to size (I’m wearing a 9.5).

Wedding Guest Dress 3: Fit & Flare Floral Dress

I love a good fit and flare dress. There’s nothing that makes you feel more like a princess! This green floral midi length one is perfect for an afternoon wedding. Like the black halter dress, it’s a great dress choice for a wedding guest dress as you’ll be able to get more wear out of it than just that one occasion. This dress would be perfect for a high tea or fancy summer event.

This dress runs a bit small, I would recommend sizing up one size. I’m still in my usual 6 here, but definitely would have preferred an 8. This dress is also 40% off, making it a great deal!

Wedding Guest Dress 4: Lace Midi Dress

How elegant is this lace midi dress! I love the asymmetrical hemline, and the blush color is so soft and pretty. Up close you can see that the blush lace also has a bit of gold thread woven through it which makes it really look gorgeous in the sunlight!

This dress fits true to size, but it is quite fitted so I would recommend wearing Spanx under this one!

Shop The Look:

There you have it! Four wedding guest dresses to get you through any of the weddings you may be attending this summer, and dresses that will last you throughout the year for other events and occasions. Which of the 4 dresses is your favorite?!
