Do you have a few weddings on your summer agenda? If so, you might be wondering what to wear. You may have heard rules like you can’t wear black or white and that your dress has to be a certain style. But we’re here to shake up everything you thought you knew about dressing up for a wedding. Obviously, if you’re in the bridal party, you’ll have your outfit already predetermined for you, but if you’re attending as a guest, then we have all the plus-size fashion inspiration you need to create a look so you feel confident and wedding-ready. So, let’s start planning, shall we?
A Minimalist Maxi Dress
We all know that the bride is the star of every wedding, and your goal as a wedding guest is to never outshine the bride. And that’s why we think a minimalist maxi dress makes for the perfect wedding attire. Another great thing about this outfit is that you can dress it up or down to better match your style or mesh well with the wedding.
Are you attending a more laid-back wedding where wearing a dress may be considered overdressing? That’s why we always keep plus size jumpsuits in consideration for a casual wedding. Jumpsuits can be very chic while also giving off that laid-back vibe. If you’re looking for an outfit that is casual, but also makes you feel confident, go for a jumpsuit that hugs your curves just right and can be dressed up with dainty jewelry for a glammed-up look. Pair the jumpsuit with your favorite block heels, and this is a wedding look you’re going to love!
Sleek Party Dress
Let’s say you just got invited to the wedding of the year where everyone is going to be dressed to the nines. In this case, you will want to choose from beautiful plus size party dresses. This is the kind of wedding where you don’t want to hold back when it comes to selecting the perfect look. When it comes to party dresses, you can choose a length that feels best for you—whether you love a midi, mini or maxi fit. These dresses are curve-hugging and will have you wanting to dance the night away!
Whimsical and Flirty Dresses
If you love attending weddings because you get to mingle with other singles and people in the bridal party, you will want a whimsical and flirty dress that has you glowing with radiance and confidence all night long. We recommend a sleek, satin or silk maxi dress with a high slit. These dresses are ultra-flattering and sexy. What’s more? You can easily keep this number in your closet and dress it up or down for different occasions.
Boho Chic Dress or Romper
Attending a summer wedding in a barn or a ceremony that has a more whimsical and boho chic vibe? We love a fun and frilly babydoll dress for these kinds of weddings. They are the perfect piece to twirl around and spend the entire day in. If you want to stand out from the crowd and wear something other than a dress, we also recommend trying a romper that’s sleek but has fun embellishments like a wrap waist or ruffles to add a playful touch. Who said you can’t wear rompers to a wedding?
The Slip Dress
Whether you’ll be in attendance at a very formal wedding or you’re attending something a little more intimate, you can’t go wrong with a gorgeous slip dress. These dresses are so versatile yet elegant. Beyond wearing this dress to the wedding, there are so many ways to style it for your day-to-day outfits as well.
When it comes to choosing a color or a pattern for the slip dress, stick with something you feel comfortable in. We recommend staying neutral if you don’t want to be the center of attention. However, if you’re looking for an outfit that turns heads, try a bold print.
Throw a Kimono into the Mix
If you have a dress picked out for the wedding you’re attending, but you want to elevate it a bit, add a whimsical kimono to it. Kimonos are perfect for weddings, and they will transform any dress or romper you plan to wear. While you can absolutely decide to sport a bold printed kimono, we suggest keeping this accessory neutral for an understated look that pairs well with everything.
The Wrap Dress
We can not get enough of flattering dresses like the wrap dress. These pieces cinch at the waist to give you that hourglass figure and come in a variety of fits and styles. We love wearing a mini wrap dress to an outdoor summer wedding. They are cute, whimsical and confidence-boosting. So, if you need a dress that’s not only comfortable but also makes you look as good as you feel, the wrap dress is the answer!
Now that you are all outfitted and ready to go have fun at your friend’s wedding, we hope you have a blast! As you prepare your wedding looks and options, it’s important to remember to wear the clothing that makes you feel the most confident. Weddings usually involve talking to and meeting a lot of people that you haven’t before and, maybe, even some public speaking and dancing. And that just means that you need an outfit that can keep you feeling beautiful and radiant all day long.
