So, you have you been invited to a friend’s wedding? Good for you, you deserve to enjoy yourself after a hard year. Are you worried because the wedding is taking place in winter? No worries, we have got your wedding guest dress covered for all four seasons. Let us guide you through the important question of what dress should you wear as a wedding guest in every season.
Summer wedding guest dress
Summer is the most favorite season for weddings. Days are longer, warm and the reception can take place outside in a romantic surrounding. Summer is also a very convenient season to dress for a wedding. Pick bright and pastel colors and complement them in similar colored accessories. Wear short sleeves or go sleeveless, as it is the only season you will not feel chilled in it. Your dress length should fall at least until the middle of the thigh, ideally just above the knee. This way, combined with a lightweight material of your summer dress, you will not feel too hot. Beware of wearing mini dresses or showing too much cleavage - you should not be the center of attention at your friend’s wedding party.
Fall wedding guest dress
Fall season calls for beautiful bold colors. Earthy tones, shades of green and red are most popular choices for fall wedding guest dresses. Whether the trees are still nicely colored or the leaves are gone already, the bold dress color will stand out and make you look radiant. Stay away from vibrant red, as it is an unwritten rule to avoid bright red and overshadow the bride. Midi dresses combined with closed heels and oversized blazers to wear over the dress – this is the way to get the best out of fall weddings. Autumn is also one of the two seasons to pull off beautiful long sleeve dresses, so if you are waiting for your chance to wear one, this is it.
Winter wedding dress for guest
Winter weddings are becoming more common in the last years, likely due to snow-white fairytale charm. Most colors stand out in winter and you almost have a free hand choosing yours. Avoid white, red and black and you are good to go. To make the most out of the season, go for deep colors such as burgundy, navy, green or yellow. As for the length, dare to wear a beautiful long wedding guest dress or maxi dress that will cover your legs and provide you at least some kind of warmth. The same applies for long sleeves, which not only look beautiful, but keep you warm too. If you are the icy queen always feeling cold, pick a winter suit instead. Go for plain velvet materials that will make an absolute star of you or pick a checked wool double-breasted skirt suit.

Spring wedding dresses
Spring is a time of blossom and you should look fresh too. It is the season of bright, light colors, such as purple, yellow, pink or baby blue. Spring is also an in-between season; you can wear anything you like. In early spring, you can still enjoy the wedding party in long sleeves but go sleeveless/ in spaghetti strap in late spring. Do not forget that it can get colder in the evenings and bring along your favorite elegant blazer. Make these two garments go together nicely and you will pull of a perfect spring wedding guest look.
