The Wedding Guest Dress Code

Good morning, fashionable friends!

‘Tis the season for wedding vows, champagne, and tear-soaked toasts. It seems like every weekend during the summer someone that I know somewhere is getting married. I love seeing smiling faces and beautiful pictures cloud my social media feeds but I also love the excuse to get gussied up.

Depending on the type of wedding, the bride and groom may request a certain dress code; however, most weddings keep a pretty traditional and generic expectation for guest attire (aka – do NOT match the bride).

I have put together some great dress options that look fabulous and will keep you in the bride and groom’s good graces. Best part? They are under $150!

Although the dresses below are fun and flirty, weddings are a great time to get fancy in your own way. Do you want to rock the Diane Keaton menswear look? Go for it!  Just  keep in mind the couple you are at the wedding to honor and keep your colors and cutouts appropriate. Not sure? Recruit a brutally honest friend to help you with your look.

For those of you swooning over designer garb but loathing the price tag – have you ever heard of renting a dress? Thanks to great companies like Rent the Runway, Halston Heritage and Badgley Mischka may not be totally off of your shopping list.

Finally, I thought we could all use a wedding guest etiquette refresher. Check out the ultimate guide to wedding etiquette here.

Cheers to the newlyweds!

Fashionably yours,

The Good Girl Who Went Broke
