Overthinking Sucks, But These Simple Wedding Guest Outfits Don't
Weddings naturally stir up so many feelings and sometimes unwelcome thoughts. In my short life, the weddings I've attended have had me pondering things like: Will my ex-boyfriend be there? What kind of dress is appropriate for an outdoor formal wedding? Is it embarrassing if I don't bring a date? Will I ever find true love? You know, the usual. In an effort to put your overthinking mind at ease, we found wedding guest outfits that require little to no thinking at all.
If a simple wedding guest outfit is what you're yearning for, we found eight. We broke down each look by the main two items to care about—the dress and the shoes. This way, you only have the remaining knickknacks to worry about, as the main attractions are already locked in place. Ready to see what simple wedding guest outfit ideas we think will make your life a lot less stressful?
Go bold and opt for a retro print like polka dots, finishing off the look with a shoe in contrasting colours.
Black-tie wedding? No problem. The trick to making an all-black dress feel special is to look for fun details like a square neckline and a thigh-high slit.
A springtime wedding calls for a bright colour and a flowing silhouette. If you won't take advantage of the season's most loved qualities, who will?
Go red or go home. Do the unexpected and pair red shoes with a red dress for a look that will give the wedding party a run for their money.
