If you have started to recieve invitations to the Summer Season you may be wondering what to wear. So for today’s Monday Pick Me Up I am bringing your 4 wedding guest dresses and 1 jumpsuit (a bit like that famous film) but don’t just wear them for a wedding.
These outfits will grace other Summer occasions like Ascot and Henley. You just need to make sure that for the Ascot Royal or Quenn Anne Enclosures your head piece has a base of at least 4 inches and if you wear a jumpsuit it has to be below the knee. Dresses for the Royal Enclosure can’t be strapless or with spaghetti straps, so take a shrug like the yellow one below or add a Pashmina.
For the Steward’s Enclosure at Henley although you don’t have to wear a hat most women do. Unlike Ascot you can’t wear trousers, culottes or jumpsuits and your dress or skirt has to be below the knee in length.
Dress codes at weddings are relaxing but it is still a great opportunity to get dressed up and wear a hat if you want to. If you are in any doubt about the dress code always check with the bride or mother of the bride.
For the wedding guest dresses below I have chosen 4 floral options as they are so popular at the moment and flowers suit the romantic occasion. Green is one of the colours of the season, so I have chosen two green options, one pastel and one a brighter print. As they all bar one have long sleeves you don’t need to wear a jacket.
Wedding Guest Dresses – Mother of the Bride
A simple shift style dress is elevated to mother of the bride status with embroidery and a chiffon overlay. I’ve chosen comfortable but stylish kitten heels as you will be on your feet for many hours.
Wedding Guest Dresses
This pretty pastel dress in a wrap style will suit all body shapes.
For Deep and Bright colouring, it’s often hard to find dresses in the Summer that aren’t pastels so this Emerald green option is perfect.
This dress would be gorgeous for a garden party wedding. But you could still wear it for a more formal occasion with the shrug.
Wedding Guest Dresses – Jumpsuit
If you aren’t a lover of dresses, a jumpsuit is a great option. This one is in a beautifully draping silk. I have balanced the wide leg style with a large hat.
