50 Wedding Guest Dress Ideas for a Summer Wedding

summer wedding guest dress

With restrictions starting to lift, wedding season is in full swing! If you follow me on Instagram, you know that a few weeks ago I attended a wedding for a family friend. I was so excited because it was my first wedding as an adult. The only other two I’ve been to, I was a toddler and a preteen. The part I was most excited for? Obviously finding the perfect wedding guest dress — would you expect anything less of me? Turns out, finding a dress was the biggest pain in my butt. I waited too long and then hated everything I ordered, but didn’t have enough time to order anything else.

So, to help you from suffering my same fate, I’ve rounded up 50 wedding guest dress ideas that would be perfect for the summer. Before I share them, here are a few tips I think will help:

  1. Order in ADVANCE. I’m talking at least a month because shipping these days is a hit or miss and you’ll most likely need a few options.
  2. Order multiple dresses in multiple styles. I had my heart set on a satin, midi length slip dress. Turns out, that style looks horrible on me. So, try different silhouettes and see what works.
  3. If you love a specific dress, order in two sizes. I made this mistake and should have ordered the next size up, but didn’t have time to repurchase.
  4. Test the dress out! I ended up loving the dress I found last minute at Zara. But, the slit in the dress opened alllll the way up when I walked too fast. Luckily it didn’t ruin my night, but it was slightly annoying (especially for someone who loves to hit the dance floor).

Ok, now that I’ve shared my tips, here are the wedding guest dresses!

Let me know which ones you’re loving!
