The invites are rolling in and, of course, you’re honored to be invited to approximately a bajillion weddings this summer. It’s nice to be popular — but it’s not so nice to find a new outfit for each and every reception. But the best wedding guest dresses aren’t necessarily the most extravagant or fancy. Instead, they’re the ones that are comfortable, memorable, and versatile enough for a repeat wear — even in the same wedding season.
Floral Midi Dress
Perfect for any summer shindig, this soft-structured dress is equal parts breezy and luxe. Plus — and we don’t say this lightly— pockets!
Black Satin Midi Dress
We never thought we’d put “understated” and “bustier dress” in the same sentence, but this style from Ukrainian designer Anna October is guaranteed to nab all the compliments.
Printed Maxi Dress
A great option for festive or semi-formal dress codes, this mesh-lined maxi comes in five prints, including this inky floral style.
Fuchsia Ruffled Gown
Bold and dramatic, this ruffled, neon pink gown works for everything from a black tie-optional ceremony to a tropical destination celebration that calls for cocktail attire.
Satin Floral Midi Dress
Perfect for a less formal wedding, this open-back floral dress doubles as a great bridal shower guest option, too.
Navy Mini Dress
A cape is undeniably sophisticated — and a great alternative to a traditional LBD.
Blue Vest and Trouser Set
A smart alternative to a traditional dress or jumpsuit, a breathable vest-and-trouser combo — especially this one in a summer-ready color like cornflower blue — is easy to dress up or down.
Satin Maxi Dress
Made from sustainable viscose, this silky A-line dress is designed with adjustable straps and a body-skimming silhouette for a comfortable fit.
Red Knit Dress
Forget the sea of LBDs in your closet: This romantic orange-red knit dress is stretchy enough to keep up with you on the dance floor — and at the after party.
Black Silk Shirtdress
A black silk shirtdress is a smart option for a daytime ceremony. Make it nighttime appropriate by adding a belt and a pair of crystal drop earrings.
Silk Floral Gown
The magic of this A-line maxi is that it works for both a daytime ceremony and an evening reception.
Pleated Asymmetrical Dress
This elegantly pleated chiffon dress is made to move with you, so save this one for a wedding with a live band (or, at least, a couple with an exceptional playlist).
Orange Twill Midi Dress
Is there a more perfect option for a beachfront wedding?
Blue Satin Gown
For the black-tie wedding on your calendar, feast your eyes on this light blue satin halter-neck gown. The draping at the bodice offers an extra touch of subtle elegance.
Red Satin Jumpsuit
A jumpsuit — especially one as fancy as this low-cut red number — is a perfectly acceptable option for a wedding that calls for cocktail attire.
