Wedding Guest Wardrobe 101


Wedding season has begun so before you start to stress over finding the perfect wedding guest outfit consider this: No two weddings are the same and no two outfits should be the same either! A good rule of thumb to ensure you look stylish and chic at all of you upcoming summer soirées is to tailor your outfit to the venue. I’ve included four outfit ideas below that correspond to popular wedding venues like these Raleigh wedding venues, along with tips to help you achieve an appropriate look. Enjoy and happy wedding season!


Dress: Dolce & Gabbana
Purse: Kate Spade
Earrings: Kate Spade
Shoes: Rachel Zoe

For a venue like a country club try a more classic cocktail dress. Bright colors such as this green easily transfer from day to night so they are perfect no matter what time of day the wedding starts! Accessorize your dress with metallics and/or choose anther bright color to incorporate some color theory and you’re good to go!




Dress: Needle & Thread
Purse: Kate Spade
Earrings: Lisi Lerch
Shoes: Vince Camuto

This festive look is a safe bet for most farm or barn weddings! The sequins give the dress a little glam without being too overpowering. One of the most important things to remember with outdoor weddings is sensible shoes. Flats or a stacked heel are going to be a much better option than high heels that will easily get stuck in the grass.




Dress: Anthropologie
Purse: Oliveve
Earrings: Oscar de la Renta
Shoes: Vince Camuto

Loft weddings have more recently become very popular for wedding celebrations. That being said you will want a more sleek and modern look if you’re attending one of these weddings this summer. Neutral colors like black, gray, or metallics are classic yet just edgy enough to make your outfit perfect for this venue.




Dress: Oscar de la Renta
Purse: Urban Expressions
Earrings: Anthropologie
Shoes: Karen Millen

For a more formal yet artistic venue, such as an art museum, you have the opportunity to step outside of your everyday-attire comfort zone. Look for a gown with interesting beading or pleats that will really make you standout among the rest in the right way.
