There is nothing I struggle with more than finding the perfect wedding guest dress. Not that I am being invited to weddings that often – something like once a year lately actually – but I always have such a hard time finding what to wear! Am I the only one? Probably not! I spend ages running from one shop to the other, finding so many dresses and not being happy with any of them. Quite often, I FaceTime my mum for final approval – or disapproval.
So can you imagine my excitement when I finally find the one?!
And my disappointment when I realize I will never ever wear it again?! Because that is often how it is, right? You find a super nice wedding guest dress, you look amazing on the day, you get compliments on your outfit and then it ends up in the back on your closet to never see the light of day again!
That’s the thing, right?! You go all out and get the complete outfit. So when my parents were paying, it was all good! But now that I am a grown up and pays my own bills, the wedding guest dress is on me, isn’t it?! Thus, I am a bit less inclined in spending a fortune for a dress I’ll never wear again!
So the solution would be to find a dress that is elegant enough for a wedding but wearable in a more casual setting. And I think I have found a winner! Sure when you look at it you might think the dress is still slightly over the top for the street. I am not sure I would wear that beautiful dress to go to work, but I can guarantee I’d wear it on a holiday! Especially a holiday by the beach, on the mediterranean coast, maybe Corsica or Italy. Or the south of France. Would not that oh-so 50s vibe and that floral print be perfect in that context?!
So yeah, I think I have found the perfect wedding guest dress that will also be perfect on holiday and won’t die of old age in the back of my closet. What do you think?! Alternatively, you can pick going out dresses that you will be wearing on many night outs and formal occasions! That works just as well!

What about you? Is it always a struggle to find the perfect outfit for a wedding? Do you always try to choose something that you’ll be able to wear later on? What do you think of this dress? Wedding guess appropriate? Would you wear it on Holiday?
Thanks a lot for stopping by. I hope you liked this post.
See you soon,
This is the perfect outfit for a wedding guest. I absolutely agree that it could be worn out as well. It’s the perfect middle not to over the top but just enough. The way the orange makes it all pop. You did an amazing job picking this one! I hope you enjoy the wedding and get in lots of dancing in this dress.
I couldn’t agree more with you about picking the best wedding guest dress because I struggle with that too! You don’t want to buy something which will collect dust in your closet! I love the dress you picked. It looks really good on you and the best part is you can use it after the occasion!
I agree with you that finding the perfect wedding guest dress is real struggle. I face this every time. Anyways the dress looks lovely on you. You look perfect in the entire attire.
I can see summer on you… I think I commented you before on another post, you fashion sense is amazing. The color of the dress is so vibrant and fresh. So ideal for summer outing and garden party. Thx!
Stunning, I need to to be invited to a wedding this year rather I need to find friends who are getting married lol. You look gorgeous and love the whole look.
That dress is so pretty! I love the floral print.
This is a gorgeous dress! I would always want to find one I could still well after as well. You can certainly do that with this dress.
This is a dress that I would wear again and again. It can be dressed up and casual too.
Beautiful dress and it´s really great that you get to wear it more than once! Now I also try to go for something I could wear after the event – cause I already have a couple of dresses that looked so beautiful for a wedding but I don´t know if I´ll get to wear them again!
Have a great week!
That dress is lush and so versatile! Looks easy to wear.
i love the shoes you’ve paired it with too.

This dress is beautiful! I always find it difficult because so often its people from the same friendship group at weddings so I can’t rewear dresses, though I have one this year that I might reuse a dress for as it’s a different group, yay! You’re so right, this dress is beautiful and versatile, ideal for a wedding and perfect for other occasions too!
I love that outfit as a whole!
I am crazy about floral prints!
I have lots of work to do, because I do have a wedding at the end of june for which I want to wear the perfect dress.
this post is perfect synchronicity ^^
I am going window shopping this weekend for sure!!
This is such a gorgeous dress! It’s perfect for weddings and is so summery too! You look great and your whole outfit is so stylish. This is such an awesome find and your photos are beautiful as always Corrine xx

I love your photos. You look amazing! That’s the perfect dress to wear both to a wedding and out. It’s definitely the type of dress that can be dressed up or down depending on what you wearing it for.
I’ve definitely struggled to find an outfit for a wedding before, I never want to look over or underdressed and it never feels like what’s appropriate for a wedding really fits in with my prefered style of clothing.

Awesome pictures. Your dress is really beautiful and I love the color of your heels.
I love your dress and you look beautiful in the pictures ✨ I can’t agree more that it’s sad to wear a pretty dress only for one occasion and never wear it again, so I always try to buy something that I can wear in everyday life too ^^

I absolutely love this dress. It’s so bright and colorful without being over done.
This reminds me of the couple of dresses idling in my wardrobe just because I have no wedding to attend at the moment. Too bad….but point to note; next time I’ll get one that I can also get to the streets with just as you are. Looking gorgeous too!
This had me nodding my head in so many places. Also being invited to roughly one wedding a year. My aunt got married last year and I spent a small fortune on an outfit I’ll probably never wear again and I’m currently hunting for an outfit to wear to one I’ve got this summer. It’s so hard. I love that you’ve found an outfit that seems to versatile! I love how you’ve styled it here x
Now this is a gorgeous outfit! I have to admit I always struggle with what to wear to a wedding but this is so nice!
That really is such a pretty dress! I can totally see it as a wedding guest but also as a night out dress, or a lunch with girlfriends! I love how versatile it is.
This dress is really cute and I love the way you accessorized it! I need more pieces I can transition like this.
love the dress it is so gorgeous and i also love that headbands bandana type of coming back into style. the bright orange adds so much color and
Yes, finding a dress for a wedding is the most difficult task. I could relate with you. I love the floral design and the heels. Your feet nail colors totally complement the heels.
It is absolutely perfect! Love that outfit!
So jealous about that chanel boy!??? Am saving hard to get mine
This dress is stunning on you! You look absolutely flawless, like someone from a movie! x x

Love the prints on that dress! I also have the same thoughts when buying dresses for weddings. I make sure it’s something not too fancy for say a night out or a meeting.
This dress is beautiful! I love the pops of color from the flowers!
I like many of your posts and would like to appreciate your sense of fashion. this dress is very pretty and looks beautiful on you. You are summer ready already.
This has a chic boho element to it. I love the dress and the shoes really set it off.
The last time I was invited to a wedding, I had a hard time finding a dress! Dresses are meant to be worn more than once – especially if it’s a guest dress. I love how you rocked the floral dress!

This is such a lovely dress, and those shoes too! Just stunning! I’d totally wear this if I ever got invited to a wedding.
This is such a stunning dress and shoes 🙂 cool for the summer type of wear haha
Such a bright bold print, but a light and flowy dress. Seems a contradiction that just works and looks great on you!
I haven’t worn a dress or skirt with twirl to it in a long time. They are fun to dance and move in st a wedding
That dress is amazing! You were the best dressed guest I am sure!
What a gorgeous dress! I love how you styled it as well. head scarf is one of my favorite current trends.
I like that practical tips. That’s what mostly happens to event dresses, if not properly and practically chosen it will just got stuck and forgotten.
I went to a wedding last weekend and struggled with this same thing! I wish I had seen this post sooner – that dress is perfect and it’s smart to want to get more use out of a dress than just one wedding.
I love the this dress but what I love more is the shoe; it is everything. I love how buildable this dress is as well!
This is such a pretty print! I think this dress is a lovely pick for a wedding.
I’m loving this dress! I love the floral and fabric! Looks comfy.
Same here. It really is a problem. But now, I have smartened up, keeping a few neutral pieces that I can wear to weddings.
What a great dress, an essential for summer! I love the way you matched it with the sandals!
This is a lovely dress! I have a wedding in August and been stressing about what to wear but I think I’ve found the perfect dress!
