Finding the perfect wedding guest dresses can be a weeks long event leading up to the marriage of a friend or family member. Though most people are well aware that they are to avoid wearing white or anything too attention getting, there seem to be fewer rules telling women what is appropriate to wear on such an occasion. When you are looking for an outfit for your next big wedding, there are a few things to consider before you ultimately make your choice.

Event Timing and Location

One way to discern the dress code for upcoming nuptials is the time and the place where they will be held. Weddings that are held during the evening hours tend to be significantly more formal than those that are held during the day. In the same vein, receptions that are held at fine hotels and ceremonies that occur in large, ornate churches will typically feature more dressy clothing than those that are held in more intimate and comfortable settings. Even if you are unfamiliar with the place of the wedding, search for it online to gain a sense of the place before you settle on an outfit.

Points of Consideration for Style

Of course, there is more to think about than simply how formal the event will be. Even if you have an idea of the dress code, it can still be difficult to find wedding guest dresses that feel right for the event. One good place to start for stype options is to find a selection of junior bridesmaid dresses. Even if you will not be in the wedding apart from observing the ceremony, selecting a dress from these options will ensure that you will look in your element both during the ceremony and at the reception.

When you are shopping, do remember that this is a great opportunity to let your personal style shine. You will look your best if you feel comfortable and confident in your outfit, so find something that makes you feel great about yourself and your look. Modesty is a good policy at these events. While you will be surrounded by the couple's family, that does not mean that you must eliminate style from your look altogether. Instead, look for a dress that is tailored to custom fit, which will allow you to dance and move around with ease and pair it with a unique pair of heels. This is a combination that you will be able to repeat at wedding after wedding, and you will always be one of the best dressed attendants there.
