The best wedding guest dresses are something we search for each and every month of the year, and every time, our quest for the wedding guest outfit drama comes into play. After all, the matrimonial schedule never stops, and we can understand why it's a big deal to locate the ultimate frock for the big day. Choosing an outfit for such an important event is one of the most high-pressure wardrobe situations a fashion fanatic will find themselves in all year. Who will be there? Will you be caught off-guard in a candid snap? What about the pictures that last forever and ever in everyone's photo albums? And then there's what you really want to opt for, in your heart of hearts. Lace? Pastels? Florals? Designer? High street? So many options. That's not to even mention choices other than dresses (of which there are many, but we won't go there here).
