You've been invited to a wedding?
Good for you! It's time to enjoy yourself after a tough year.
Can't find the right dress for the season? 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 you should wear as a wedding guest.
Summer Wedding Dresses
Most weddings take place in Summer. Days are longer and warmer 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 compliment them with similar colored accessories. Feel free to wear short sleeves or go sleeveless. Your dress length should fall at least until the middle of the thigh, ideally just above the knee. This way, combined with the lightweight material of your summer dress, you will not feel too hot.
Fall Wedding Dresses
The fall season calls for beautiful bold colors. Earthy tones and shades of green and red are the 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 in order not to 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-sleeved dresses, so if you are waiting for your chance to wear one, this is it.
Winter Wedding Dresses
Winter weddings are becoming more common in the last few years, likely due to the 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 a maxi dress that will cover your legs and provide you with at least some kind of warmth. The same applies to long sleeves, which not only look beautiful but keep you warm too. If you tend to get cold quickly, 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'll pull off the perfect spring wedding guest look.
