Bride-Approved Wedding Guest Dresses 

When it comes to dressing for a wedding, one thing is for sure, you should never upstage the bride. Guests should always adhere to the dress code (if there is one) and never wear white. But, on the other hand if your bride is happy to welcome an array of colours and materials, then this is one of the best occasions to pull out all the stops and wow in your best finery.  

Some of the most popular styles, fabrics and colours include, satin, silk, lace, combined with touches of embroidery, floral prints or neutral and light shades. Our collection of NADINE MERABI wedding guest dresses incorporate traditional wedding guest dress styling with modern touches to provide an array of looks, no matter where or when the big day is to be held.

Elegant Midi Wedding Guest Dresses 

Midi dresses, such as our OLIVIA Blush Dress, provide the perfect style for an elegant, feminine look. Usually associated with more formal weddings, these dresses are a great choice for weddings held in grand venues, such as castles, stately homes, luxury hotels and countryside estates. In-keeping with the formality of the occasion and the breath-taking backdrop of such prestigious venues.  

What’s great about midi dresses is that they are flattering and incredibly comfortable for anyone. Available in a wide range of styles, materials and colours, they can be dressed up with statement accessories or can leave a lasting impression with bold colours and prints. With such variety and choice, there’s a midi dress for every kind of wedding guest.

Chic Minimalist Dresses

For a modern wedding, a minimalist design, such as our ABIGAIL Lime Dress would make for a sophisticated look. Combining quality fabrics with simple detailing, a minimalist style wedding guest dress provides a fresh and modern look that can be worn with simple accessories and shoes. A beautiful choice for chic weddings where the bride and groom are choosing to embrace the simplicity of a stripped back wedding. Staying away from the traditions of grandeur and big displays and instead maintaining the focus on the love in the room. 

When it comes to styling a minimalist wedding guest dress, we say simple is best. Pair your most sophisticated court shoes or pumps with your choice of dress and add stripped-back accessories. A delicate diamond earring or necklace is perfect.

Dance Floor-Ready Party Dresses

For weddings that are bound to be filled with music, a dress that can accommodate lots of dancing and movement is a must. A party dress such as our popular LOTTIE Teal Dress, with its individually hand-embellished detailing and teal crystal waterfall beading creates a mesmerising illusion when worn. A beautiful, eye-catching colour and design that is in-keeping with a modern wedding guest dress.  


Making sure you can party all night long, be sure to pair your dance floor-ready dress with your best pair of comfortable heels and match your accessories and jewellery with the glistening details to catch the lights of the dance floor as you move your way around the room, mingling and dancing the night away.
