We don't mean to panic you, but wedding season is almost upon us. If you're anything like us, you'll have spent the last month or two with your head buried firmly in the sand, occasionally coming up for air, only to experience Topshop-induced overload and plunging back into your happy hole of denial.
If it makes you feel any better, we're all in the same boat, so we're here to help you slowly acclimatise and navigate the oversaturated world of wedding guest dresses. But don't worry—we're not going to chuck you in at the deep end with a 100-strong dress edit featuring every brand under the sun. Instead, we've handpicked a selection from three of our fail-safe high-street labels: Topshop, Arket and & Other Stories.
Three brands, five dresses: It's that simple. Whether you're a floral fanatic or wrap-dress devotionalist, there is so much on offer right now. Our personal highlights include Topshop's retro floral-print maxi dress, which is sure to flatter every figure, and & Other Stories' tiered smock dress, which is begging to be worn with patent Mary Janes. See? That wasn't so scary after all. Scroll down to see and shop our full edit.
