Wedding bells are ringing: What to wear as a guest to a nuptial

From chic city weddings through to dreamy vineyard affairs, we’ve got all the wedding guest outfit inspiration right here to help you find the right dress, jumpsuit, suit and more for any dress code.

Read on to discover our top picks for every wedding so that you arrive appropriately and stylishly dressed for the celebration.

Formal (Black-tie)

The crème de le crème, formal or black-tie weddings are one of the easiest to dress for. There is little room for interpretation and the wedding venue is usually a great clue as to exactly how formal the couple expects their guests to dress. Black-tie will require a tuxedo, so you can expect to see plenty of black bow ties or a simple long black tie. Formal gowns mean you can experiment with longer lengths, interesting sleeves and slinky fabrics. Black-tie is also a great opportunity to play with accessories such as cufflinks and refined jewellery like pearls and diamonds.

Find the best of black-tie from David Jones, MJ Bale, Myer and Michael Hill Jewellers.

Cocktail

Depending on the time of year and location, you can have some sartorial fun with this fun and flirty dress code. For the men a suit and tie with a crisp white shirt and dress pants is a fail-safe option, while for women shorter dresses and elegant separates like a silky midi skirt can make an appearance. Accessory-wise, get ready to be playful and fun with bright heels and statement clutch bags. Another easy way to accessorise is with headwear, think headbands or on trend pearl clips to add a touch of glamour.

Discover our favourite cocktail styles from from David Jones, Sass & Bide, Zimmerman, Sheike, Aje, Country Road, Mimco, Wittner and Tony Bianco.

Casual

Think beach side nuptials, tropical getaways or low-key affairs that may not follow a traditional format. This dress code is very much influenced on venue, and the time of year. While still important to remember that you will be attending a wedding, business casual can be a good guide, and floaty day dresses are always a safe bet. A casual wedding dress code also brings with it more flexibility to play with trending colours, patterns and accessories. A word to the wise, if it is a beach wedding, consider your footwear seriously; stilettos will sink in the sand so opt for classy flats or wedges for a fuss free and fabulous day!

Fashion forward

This is either an approach that you’ll love or fret over. Almost all weddings will have a place for a fashion forward twist. Whether it’s the latest shoes or bag, or a full statement ensemble, this is every fashionistas dream. Put your best foot forward and harness your inner confidence by being bold with bright colours, a silhouette with modest cut outs – nothing is off limits with this type of dress code. However, if you’re looking to dabble in this but don’t want to commit to a full look, opt for fantastic accessories of the season.

Hunt your fashion forward looks from David Jones, Zimmerman, Carla Zampatti and Myer.
