Experts are predicting that 2023 will be the busiest year for weddings in the last forty years! All those celebrations mean stocking up on new wedding guest dresses. Not sure what to wear to your next celebration? Whether you’re attending a formal winter affair or a casual summer ceremony, keep reading to see 2023 wedding guest dresses that are perfect for every season.
Spring Wedding Guest Dresses
For spring-time weddings, you can’t go wrong with bright colors or a fun pattern. Choosing a bright shade of pink, green, or yellow (or a pattern featuring a bright hue) will ensure your outfit complements the lush backdrops of the season. Depending on where the wedding is, the weather may be unreliable. Consider wearing a maxi dress or a dress with sleeves to ensure you’ll be warm enough at an outdoor ceremony or cocktail hour.
Summer Wedding Guest Dresses
Summer wedding guests attending celebrations in July, August, and September can expect to be spending time outdoors. For a more low-key and casual wedding, pick a fun mini or midi dress with spaghetti straps to keep you comfortable and cool. If you’re attending a semi-formal or formal event, consider dresses with an asymmetrical hemline or a slit to ensure your legs have room to breathe (and make it easier to dance!).
Fall Wedding Guest Dresses
With the changing colors and cooling temperatures, fall weddings are growing in popularity. Guests should lean into the rich hues of the season with outfits in colors like burgundy, hunter green, or one of our favorite colors for 2023: brown. Velvet fabric is a no-fail option for this time of year as well!
Winter Wedding Guest Dresses
Winter weather often means longer hems, thicker fabrics, and darker colors. But how does that translate into wedding guest attire? In our opinion, you can never go wrong with a little black dress! Switch it up with ruffles, asymmetrical sleeves, or sparkles for a standout look you can wear again and again.
