Wedding guest outfit ideas



Wedding season is upon us! It is so much fun being a guest at a wedding, celebrating the union to two souls in love. Last year I wrote a post regarding wedding dress ideas and wedding etiquette. Since wedding season has officially arrive, I figured I would share some of my favorite wedding guest dresses that I am obsessing over.


Being 5’2 has its challenges at time but when it comes to fashion, we shorties don’t always have to struggle. Brands like Express, Ann Taylor, Banana Republic and more offer petite styles to some of the most darling dresses.

Maxi dresses

These dresses are so versatile! They can be dressed up with a cardigan like this one from Gal Meets Glam or dresses down with your favorite denim jacket.

High-low dresses

Another great option for petites. My favorite part about high low dresses is the way wind picks up the skirt. It’s so feminine yet elegant at the same time!

Don’t feel like wearing a dress? Go with a jumpsuit! It’s the perfect piece for the modern woman.
