I’ve gotten so many emails since the start of Wedding Wednesdays asking me to share ideas for wedding guests as well as brides-to-be. We have seven more weddings this year so I totally hear you! I decided to kick off these posts with a round-up of long wedding guest dresses perfect for fancier affairs (whether black tie, black tie optional, formal attire, etc.). If you have other wedding guest-related questions, feel free to ask away in the comments!
While some of the below options are seriously splurge-worthy, there are also a ton from Rent The Runway, which is definitely my go-to resource for surviving wedding season in style. I don’t mind rewearing a wedding guest dress (particularly if it’s with a different group of friends) but it’s also a lot of fun to wear something new every time (often for under $100 a pop).
That said, renting a dress does require some contingency planning, which is why I try to have my dress delivered a couple days before the wedding (you can rent for up to eight days at a time) and come prepared with these adhesive petals (which are great to have on hand in general) and this fashion tape (perfect for faking an emergency hem).
I’m not usually a big fan of embroidery or prints but there’s something about this design that I’m totally drawn to. Any favorites for you? More wedding guest requests?
