WEDDING GUEST DRESSES – YOUR CELEBRATION STYLE AWAITS

Whether the wedding you’re attending is a summertime beach extravaganza or a ballroom affair in winter, you’ve got plenty of options when it comes to wedding guest dresses at Christellas. From semi-formal wedding guest dresses  to the most formal of wedding occasions, our collection covers a full range of formality in wedding events. More importantly, we’re sharing some attendee tips you may want to consider in selecting your wedding guest dress detailed below to help you find a dress that is perfect in every way for the celebration day with the bride and groom.

OUR WEDDING GUESTS DRESSES COLLECTION – WHERE FASHION & COMFORT COLLIDE

The challenge in finding the perfect wedding guest dress is a achieving that perfect balance of beauty and comfort. Because ditching your shoes under the table, or running to the car for a frumpy sweater that covers your goose bumps and broken strap—these are all signs of wedding guest dress wardrobe malfunctions! After all, attending a wedding plus reception can be an all-day affair that blends into the night time hours, so you should be interested in wedding guest dresses that can go the distance.

If you’re attending a small, garden wedding, you’re probably fine with good accessories and a nice chiffon style that fits comfortably. For fancy formal ballroom affairs, you’ll have to class it up, but you still want wedding guest dresses in lightweight, breathable fabrics that allow for movability and dancing. We suggest avoiding anything with built-in boning which can be bothersome over time, or even pokey if you’re seated for long durations. A wedding guest dress that is too snug can also lead to comfort regret, particularly if the meal is buffet style! You may have been waiting for the perfect chance to wear those high-as-the-sky heels, but if your shoes aren’t well broken in already, you may end up barefoot before the night is through! The formality of the wedding event can determine if taking off your shoes is appropriate behavior. TIP: A good tip for knowing if you should or should not take off your heels is taking your lead from the bride herself. No matter how formal the affair, the bride sets the tone for fashion formality. If the bride kicks off her heels to dance the night away, feel comfortable joining in to shimmy up a storm and cut a rug on the dance floor barefoot.

Our favorite wedding guest dresses for comfort and trendy styles are dresses constructed of stretch mesh, stretch lace or stretch jersey knit fabrics. All of these fabrics allow for maximum comfort throughout the day and into the night. They are both breathable and are tolerant of perspiration, stain resistant and most importantly, these fabrics stretch which allows for maximum comfort throughout the event’s activities, especially for dancing. Wedding guest dresses come in a variety of colors in these fine fabric options. You can find out more about each wedding guest dress fabric and alterability in the product description information on each product page.

WHAT TO WEAR – HOW FORMAL SHOULD YOUR WEDDING GUEST DRESS BE?

In terms of selecting appropriate wedding guest dresses, the time of the wedding and celebration venue can give you some indication of what level of formality is expected for attire. Typically all outside wedding venues including beach, garden, country and mountain locations allow for a short semi-formal to tea length dress lengths for wedding guest dresses no matter what time of day the ceremony and reception are being held. The bridal party, mothers of the bride and groom and extended close family may still be dressed more formally in long gowns. However, this is typically not expected of the guests in outside venues. TIP: If you are attending an outside wedding, it is always good to wear a shoe that does not have pointed heels to avoid “sinking” into the ground, gravel or grass surfaces. Wearing a wedge style heel is best to help avoid this venue pitfall and will keep you steady walking across potentially uneven surfaces.

Wedding guest dresses that are tea length can be considered both semi-formal and formal and are a great cross over length when you are attending a mid to late afternoon wedding ceremony. Tea length wedding guest dresses come in a variety of fabric choices and allow for easy movement if there is extensive walking between venues or you expect to dance the night away at the reception party. Full skirt styles are more popular than fitted styles in this length as movement is so much more free when your skirt has extra volume.

Formal wedding guest dresses are by far the most fancy of all of the styles. If your wedding invitation calls for “black tie” or “white tie” you can expect that all the guests will be wearing full length gowns either with or without a train and men will be in fashionable tuxedos. Most evening weddings after 5pm are considered to be more formal unless the invitation informs you otherwise. TIP: Many cultures from around the world expect a certain level of formal dress at wedding ceremonies. If you are attending a wedding outside of your personal culture, it is always best to ask for clear direction on the expected wardrobe attire because it is not always called out on the wedding invitation. This can also be the case when attending the wedding of families of prominence from all cultures. Pants or pant suits for ladies are not typically considered appropriate attire for formal weddings, more often than not, dresses and gowns are expected attire.

WEDDING GUEST DRESSES THAT COMPLEMENT A THEME OR COLOR INSPIRATION

We are seeing more and more bride and grooms select a theme or color inspiration for their special day. We have wedding guest dresses that fit a variety of themes from Gatsby, masquerade and Victorian to tropical island beach inspirations. And of course, we offer wedding guest dresses in every color in the rainbow. It is fun to get dressed up and dressing for a wedding theme or ceremony celebration can truly make memories for a lifetime for the bride and groom, as well as the guests in attendance. Don’t be afraid to select wedding guest dresses that are on the dressy side – it is always better to be slightly over dressed than the person who shows up under dressed. This is especially true at a wedding when there are so many photographs being taken!
