When it comes to attending a friend’s wedding, some people are excited to have the opportunity to wear a beautiful dress that looks absolutely beautiful. At the same time, some ladies just hate wearing dress. They think it’s too feminine, or it doesn’t suit their personalities well, or they just simply hate it. There comes the headache, how can you dress appropriately for a wedding as a guest if you don’t wear dress? Some of you may even just wear t shirt and jeans everyday. The good news is, even if you don’t like dresses, you can still look good in your friend’s wedding. I am just about to share with you some of the best no-dress wedding outfit ideas with you.
Wearing a palazzo jumpsuit is very suitable as a wedding guest. There are so many different styles of palazzo jumpsuits, while some make you more boyish and stylish, and some allows you to show some skin. You can simply pick a sleeveless or short-sleeve, long palazzo jumpsuit, if you prefer to dress unisex. If you want to look more feminine and sexy, off the shoulder, low-back, or low v neck designs are some good choices.
Wear Playsuit to Wedding
If you think a long jumpsuit may be too formal and you prefer a more energetic look, wearing a playsuit to wedding may be an idea that you would like. A playsuit is kind of like of a short version of a jumpsuit. It allows you to show your legs and it will make you look a lot more refreshed, especially for outdoor weddings. Remember, don’t wear playsuit that is too short, because you are a guest and you shouldn’t take all the spotlight away from the bride. Usually, white playsuit or black playsuit with very subtle pattern will work really well for wedding. You can look more stylish by adding more layer, whether it is a vest or a jacket. For a more girly and cheerful look, a floral playsuit is a great choice.
Wear Origami Shorts to Wedding
Since origami shorts have a lot of layers, it makes them look so much like skirts visually. You can pair your origami shorts with all sorts of semi-formal tops that people would usually pair with skirts. That should make you look appropriate and make you feel comfortable as a wedding guest.
Paper Bag Shorts For Wedding
You can wear paper bag shorts to wedding if you pick the right one and pair it with the right top. Since paper bag shorts can be easily be way too casual, try get one that is made of some finer fabric and one that is less baggy. Pair the shorts with a formal and beautiful top. A nice long-sleeve, off-shoulder top like the above picture is a good example of what to wear with your paper bag shorts for wedding.
Wear Wide Trousers to Wedding
Dresses come to mind when it comes to wedding guest outfit, since most of the trousers we wear to work just don’t look right for weddings. But there are actually a lot of wide trousers that look beautiful and they are perfect to wear to wedding. It’s mainly about the fabric and the cutting that makes them so much better looking than the ones we wear to work. The wide trousers you can wear to wedding are made of some fine fabric, and they have rather tight cutting at the top and very wide cutting at the bottom to make your legs look so slim and long. I think that both plain color trousers and floral trousers work very well for wedding.
Wear Skinny Pants to Wedding
Remember, skinny jeans are not appropriate for weddings, no matter how good they make you look. I think the main reason is that you don’t want the bride to think that you don’t respect the weddings by wearing jeans. You just don’t want to have the slightest chance making the bride unhappy. On the other hand, skinny pants or slim cut pants are appropriate, especially when you pair them with a beautiful and formal top like the above picture.
White Suit with Lace Top
If you are the type that prefer to wear suit because you are so used to wearing it everyday for work, how about wearing a lace top under your blazer to make the overall look less serious and more suitable for wedding.
Khaki Pants with Pastel Top for Wedding
Khaki pants can be too casual, but it can look decent enough for wedding if you pair them with a beautiful pastel top. As you can see from the above picture, a beautiful jacket and a nice pair of heels can elevate the look big time.
The above ideas are all great outfit ideas if you are not willing to wear a dress for your friend’s wedding. But, if your only reason is that you are just not used to wearing dresses, or you don’t want to get judged by people, I strongly recommend you to get out of your comfort zone, because it’s really a lot of fun to wear a beautiful dress as a wedding guest. You will have fun for sure. That’s nothing wrong with looking good.
Having shared a lot of beautiful ideas for wedding guest outfits, my personal favorite (if dress is not an option) is the palazzo jumpsuit. I think it’s the safest option because for other ideas, you really have to put in the effort to pair your top and bottom in order to not look underdressed. If it’s for an outdoor wedding, my personal favorite would be the playsuit as it is more refreshing.
Hopefully, the ideas I shared can inspire you to find a good outfit idea for the next wedding you attend.
