42 Beautiful Summer Wedding Guest Dress Ideas You’ll Love

Summer loving had me a blast…

We’re singing one of the catchiest tunes from the movie musical Grease, and in case you’re not familiar, the next line is:

Summer loving happened so fast…

We could keep singing it for hours (yup, we will), but the thing is, summer’s coming fast, and if you’re invited to one or more summertime weddings this year, it’s time to start thinking about what you’re going to wear!

There are so many styles to choose from in a summer wedding guest dress, and you deserve a chic celebration dress that becomes a closet staple you’ll love wearing again. That’s where we come in.

We’ve got 45 cool, comfy, stunning, and sunny choices to make you the best-dressed guest at any summer wedding!

Breath of Fresh Air Boho Summer Wedding Guest Dress

Attending a semi-formal summer wedding? You’ll be perfectly ready to celebrate in this lightweight woven dress with its striking blue on blush floral print.

The elastic waist provides a breathable fit for many sizes, and you’ll be making lots of beautiful memories wearing this all summer long.

Flow and Bow Dress

Linen is an ideal material, particularly for summer weddings.

The flowing style here is a beautiful fit for all feminine body types, and there are so many delicious colors to choose from you might find yourself ordering more than one of these gorgeous dresses!

Floral Fancy Midi Dress

You can go from a garden wedding to a restaurant reception in this midi-length wrap dress with a flirty, flared bottom.

We love the rustic colors, and it would look great with slip-on wedge sandals to take you from daytime comfort to nighttime dancing.

Sweet Satin Midi Dress

Let’s take a quick break from stunning florals to give some love to this lovely satiny midi dress with elbow sleeves and a gorgeous twist at the bodice.

You’ll shine like a retro movie star in this beautiful number!

One Shoulder Dress for Summer Nights

Some summer weddings demand more of an evening attire dress code, in which case, this edgy but super-elegant mid-stretch dress is waiting for you in black or red (we wouldn’t recommend wearing the off-white tone as a wedding guest).

The asymmetric sleeve works by wrapping the fabric around your neck and slipping your arm through, a simple move that provides a spectacular finish to this look.

Choose Your Dress or Jumpsuit

Ladies, a question for you: are you a Monza or a Majesty?

This designer offers you the choice of a stunning jumpsuit or an exceptional dress to attend a summer wedding event, and as you can see from the photos, this regal look suits a woman who knows her curves are world-class!

Minty Green Mini Dress

We’re picturing a guest at a garden wedding soaking up the sun and sipping on a mint julep in this pretty green slip-style mini-dress.

Burnt Orange Beach Dress

If the wedding is happening on a balcony overlooking the beach, this V-neck, flowing satiny dress is sleek and stylish.

The burnt orange color is stunning, but other beautiful choices are available.

Rustic-Chic in a Ruffled Sleeve Dress

We like the refreshing green print on this midi-length garden party dress.

The ruffled sleeves are so feminine, and this is a perfect style to wear with comfy flat ballet shoes.

Bit of Back on a “Ditsy Floral” Dress

The length and back cutout on this sweet dress create the right summery semi-formal look, and in case you were wondering (like we were!), a “ditsy” pattern is more subtle than, let’s say, a bold geometric-print dress.

They can call it what they want—we’ll call it perfect!

Far From Basic Burgundy Cocktail Dress

If you’re looking for unique and gorgeous, take a peek at this beauty!

The rich burgundy polyester is stunning, and the ruffled details on the sleeves and the skirt are understated elegance. You’ll look feminine in this, but you can still rock a chunky pair of heels and accessories if you please.

Très Chic Tie-Wrap Dress

The neutral blues and greens soften the large floral pattern on this flowing, sleeveless midi-dress.

With its standout halter neckline, you don’t have to worry about adding accents, and the high-waisted wrap is beyond figure-flattering.

Charming Crochet Party Dress

It’s no longer taboo to wear black to a wedding, and we like the charming effect of a bit-longer crochet hemline on this polyester-spandex blend. It’s sweet and sexy, but it won’t upstage the bride.

Summer “Tie” Front Dress

For a summertime wedding, we adore the front tie on this short, flared party dress, and the long sleeves add a touch of sophistication.

This pretty look gets a boho blue ribbon!

Stunning Big Bow Party Dress

Oh, this formal attire pencil dress is something else!

It’s stunning from the front, but it’s “knock your socks off” gorgeous at the back with the shoulder to hip bow and the ladylike slit.

Fairytale Dress for a Wedding Guest

Let’s go ahead and appreciate this truly unique dress for its fairytale beauty and elegance.

There’s an airy sweetness to this chiffon and polyester fabric combination. The glittery lantern sleeves and the long ribbon tie around the neck will make you feel like a princess without stealing the bride’s thunder!

Picnic Dress for a Beach Wedding

A pink gingham sundress is super-casual, perfect for wearing again after the wedding.

If you’re going to an afternoon or beach wedding, you can still turn up the glam on this one by wearing a pearly headband, some dangly pearl-drop earrings, and maybe short lacy arm cuffs with Grecian sandals on your feet.

Long Green Sleeves Cotton Dress

Here’s another unique look that puts chic and casual in a fashion blender and spins out this fabulous style!

We’re glad there’s a hint of a front slit on this long garment because it’s otherwise buttoned-up. You won’t look drab in this though—the boho pattern and polo-style collar are super-flattering.

Wrap Your Curves in This Elegant Dress

This dress is chock full of sex appeal, but you can make it classy with minimalist jewelry and a lower heel to let this shiny number speak for itself.

The side wrap detail and trumpet flare on the short sleeves will heighten your hourglass curves!

Sweet Mexican Pleated Floral Dress

If you’re petite in height and around your bustline, this traditional-style pleated cotton dress is perfect, fun, and flirty!

We love this garment’s story because it’s hand-embroidered by artisans from Oaxaca, Mexico.

A Gathered Guest in Her Summer Dress

We love the bright color and boho print on this flowing sundress.

The gathered detail on the bust and flowing sleeves add some structure, making this ideal for an afternoon wedding.

Go ahead and rock a golden beige sunhat and lace-up boots to complete your chic look!

Classy Crisscross Summer Dress

The background color on this elegant maxi dress is called “apricot,” and it suits every skin tone.

The deep floral pattern is sophisticated, and the sleek crisscross straps will make you look beautiful from front to back.

Totally Tulle Summer Dress

This dress is stunning in its simplicity. We love how the spaghetti straps and delicate waist bow coordinate nicely and how the tulle is structured and detailed.

You’ll require minimal jewelry or “bling” to stand out in this outfit!

It’s Your Summer Crop Dress

Wear a two-piece to a wedding? With this vibrant, one-sleeve crop top and long, flowing skirt, you bet you can!

We think you’ll get a lot of re-wear out of this beautiful two-piece set too.

Short-Sleeve Flowing Dress

We like the pretty mini-floral pattern on this simple summer dress.

The color choices are also excellent, particularly the soft pinky-red selection.

Bold Boho Print on Pretty Dress

The attractive hi-lo hemline on this pretty dress is on-trend, and you get a variety of color and pattern choices with this one.

Get a Jump on This Summer Suit

The jumpsuit is hitting its stride in wedding fashion, and this comfy, classy selection features wide-leg pants, sleeveless ruffles, and a nice wrap detail to highlight your curves.

Lady in Red Shift Dress

This option is breathtaking because it’s so simple yet beautiful!

The sleeveless boatneck will keep you comfortably pretty, and the flowing A-line suits one and all.

This Stunning Party Dress Is Color Plus

You’ll be a vision wearing this flowing, empire-waisted party dress.

It’s available in jaw-dropping splashes of floral colors from soft to dramatic, and the regular to plus sizes here is impressive too.

Genuine Aloha Summer Dress

Made in Hawaii, this banana leaf print dress in a rayon fabric can lengthen the body, and the hemline flows in a regal fashion as you stroll.

Be a queen in this beautiful dress!

Side Ruffle Dress with Small Slit

We love the curly line created here with the side ruffle on the skirt traveling up to the asymmetric ruffled sleeve. This perfect pencil shape skims the body with some lovely gathering details.

Pink Beach Party Dress

Here’s another version of that cool, comfortable A-line dress with a funky pink modern art pattern.

This style is “confident wedding guest fashion” at its finest! 

Fun Fringe Rebel Dress

How about a desert sun outfit that would be fab at a late summer wedding?

We love how the model rocks her fringes with side slit ankle boots.

Classic Convertible Infinity Dress

Imagine being able to wear a flowing Grecian goddess-style dress in many different ways!

This gorgeous garment is wearable in a halter style, with a deep V-front, as an off-the-shoulder number, asymmetrically, or even a strapless gown.

As a wedding guest, this is perfect for a formal event, and it also makes an ideal look for bridesmaids!

Linen Wrap Dress for Waterfront Wedding

Attending a wedding at a private marina calls for a casually classy style, so look no further than this lovely linen wrap dress in many summer-bright colors and even black too!

We think you’d look striking in this with a wide-brim straw hat.

Terrific Two-Piece for Casual Wedding

This two-piece summer set is available in minty green, and its retro 50s vibe makes it more fun and flirty than overly sexy.

You’ll get plenty of “wear again” bang for your buck with this set and either the top or skirt, all season long.

Wedding Shawl to Wear Many Ways

You can call this a poncho, a shawl, a scarf, a waist wrap. However you wear it, you get a bit of sheer coverage and a lot of styles.

There are over 50 colors to choose from too!

Fun Wedding Romper in Mustard Color

Sustainability rocks and this sunny-colored jumpsuit is living proof.

It’s 100% cotton twill quality with a cool and eye-catching “dancing people” pattern. It’s so easy to dress this up for a wedding and also keep it “cazh” for the weekend or even workwear.

Pink Pantsuit Is Party Ready

This high-quality suit set goes from fun wedding fashion to polished workwear instantly, with a subtle shine provided by a worsted polyester and spandex fabric mix. 

Dotted Flutter Sleeve Shift Dress

We’ve always enjoyed the retro look of a polka-dotted dress, and this baby blue style delivers the raised “Swiss dots” with a simple neckline and two mini slits on the sides.

Silken Flowing Cut Bias Dress

Unique, comfy, and available in many sizes and colors, this stylish, mid-calf silky dress has a striking bias cut that’s easy to dress up for any occasion.

A Party Dress to Tie Dye For

The retro 80s tie-dye effect and sleeveless ruffles on this loose, high-waisted party dress are on point for the current wedding season, and we also like the little keyhole detail at the back.
