Out of the Millions of Dresses to Wear for a Wedding, These are the 27 We Rate

One of the most frequently asked questions we get from our lovely Who What Wear readers is “Which dress should I wear to a (insert ceremony type here) wedding?” While there are certainly no rules when it comes to church ceremonies, registry office nuptials in the city or even a country escape or venue abroad. Of course there are some styles, and brands, we look to each season for wedding guest outfits.

Rixo, Reformation and Self-Portrait are always go-tos for dressy yet wearable dresses that work way beyond the wedding date. The likes of Simone Rocha and cult label Taller Marmo are reliable for even fancier affairs. And when it comes to affordable styles, high-street brands including & Other Stories, Reiss, Zara and Mango never fail to impress. With so many dresses out there, though, half the battle is looking for The One, because it’s not just the couple’s outfits that are important, right?

So to save you time for the multiple upcoming weddings you most likely have in your diaries, here are the 27 dresses (remember that film?) that we believe are the best spring wedding guest styles.

We're imagining this at a countryside venue worn with delicate lace-up sandals.

We wouldn't usually think of Arket for guest dresses, but this open-back style is a winner all round. 

Let this dress shine by keeping to minimal, tonal accessories. 

Wear this beauty as shown with bold, clashing accessories. 

Stunning in every colour and print. 

Every dress from the new M&S x Ghost collection can be worn well after the big day. 

Add a light-pink blazer and matchy-matchy heels. 

Add towering platforms and lashings of gold jewellery. 

Of course this would be well-suited to a seaside wedding. 

Renting an outfit is a great (and sustainable) way to wear a designer dress you may not want to splurge on. 

So pretty with white heels and a clashing green bag. 

So chic with a chunky chain necklace and lace-up-the-leg heels. 

Yep, you can wear black to a wedding.
