Best Summer Wedding Guest Dresses That You Should Be Wearing This Season

The official wedding season has started with a host of flowers in bloom! Weddings are some of the most stunning events to look forward to. Not only the bride, but wedding attendees find it quite difficult to choose a wedding-worthy dress. This season, while you may be tempted to grab your prettiest satin slip dress or floral print sleeveless dress, know that there are many more options for you to try and stand out. It was still chilly outside till June but as we approach the warmer season this month, we’re swapping the cold weather fabrics like velvet and leather – for punchy patterns and colors. We recommend experimenting with fabric and colors as much as possible and dare to mix prints this year. However, the question of – how to choose the right ensemble that feels elegant and comfortable without upstaging the bride? – still remains. To lend a helping hand, we have prepared our shoppable list of wedding guest dresses for summer 2019 and added some style tips for any kind of nuptials that you might encounter in 2019.

CUSHNIE Ruched Tulle Sleeve Mini Dress

Colors

Fluorescent shades are hitting the fashion scene hard this year and this micro-trend is popularized single-handedly by the Kardashians, hands down. This is more than a passing Instagram trend. The SS19 catwalks of New York, London, etc. championed hot pink, mermaid blue, lime green, jello yellow, cheeto red, sunset violet, and flame orange. Many designers have put a sophisticated spin on neon shades in order to make them evening and formal event appropriate. For weddings, hot pink, bright blue, and flame orange are the three bold colors you must try this year. Pair these colors with an ultra cute tea-length number and you’re set to make jaws drop, all night long. If you’re wearing these colors in a cocktail-dress, pair them with cascading frills and flouncy hem for a mermaid-worthy outfit.

Fabrics

Silhouette and Style

Keep it sweet and simple with high-low dresses or wear a dress with a sexy bustier detail – depending on your comfort level. Sparkles are fun too, consider a sparkly detail while picking a dress, which just has a hint of glitter or sequins at the top or on the sides. Talking about hems, you gotta love a tulip hem this year. A solid tulip hem dress with a bag with tassel details and gold heels will keep you feeling gorgeous throughout the night. Coming to length, midi skirts and dresses are also making an appearance at 2019 spring-summer weddings. Midis look super-flattering, in pastel colors like mint to a bevy of jewel tones like an emerald.
