Destination weddings are a lot of fun. Not only do the bride and groom get to marry with the sun on their skin and the sand between their toes, all of their friends and family get to enjoy a holiday with them at the same time!
When it comes to finding wedding guest dresses for destination weddings, you also have a little more freedom than if you were looking for a formal outfit for a traditional wedding. But that doesn’t mean you can just turn up in a beach dress and flip flops! In fact, choosing a dress that balances formal and informal for a destination wedding can be tricky.
Don’t worry, we’re here to help. Here are some of our favourite destination wedding guest styles that we think you’ll love:
The Spaghetti Strap Dress
When the weather is hot, the dress you choose needs to be lightweight and breathable. This beautiful bamboo print maxi dress ticks all the boxes. Thanks to its low back and spaghetti straps, you’ll be able to feel the sun on your skin whilst the fresh breeze circulates around you. The tie waist belt and plunging neckline will create a flattering shape, enabling you to show off your curves.
The bamboo print injects a fun and summery feel to the piece, but because it is set against a rich navy blue backdrop it remains demure and occasion appropriate. Add glitzy embellished sandals to finish off the look; ideal for walking on sand without worrying about sinking heels.
The Bold Leopard Print Dress
Looking for a dress that is bold, beautiful and that will really help you to stand out from the crowd? Then this is the perfect choice! Leopard print is one of this season’s hottest fashion trends, and wearing it in the feminine shade of blush pink will soften and lighten it, making it appropriate for a beach or destination wedding.
The loose cap sleeves provide extra coverage, perfect if you don’t like to show off your arms, whilst the frill wrap detail will hug your figure in all the right places, helping to create a silhouette that makes you feel streamlined and confident. Pair with oversized statement jewellery in vibrant shades to add to the drama of the dress.
The Fun Floral Dress
Look chic in traditional florals, thanks to this wrap maxi dress from SilkFred. The wrap front detail will flatter your curves, whilst the split leg design will look great when it is being blown gently by a summer beach breeze.
The beige base colour of the dress will perfectly complement sun kissed skin, whilst the pretty floral print is perfect for a wedding. Pair the dress with a simple floral headband or hair slide to create a look that is romantic and ethereal. This is a great choice if you want to inject some fun and glamour into your wedding guest style.
