Do you know what’s better than a pink dress? According to this outfit idea, it’s a purple dress. Truth be told, the idea changed my perception of purple dresses and now I’m showing up at a wedding like this certainly.

5. Spaghetti Hands Satin Dress with Heels + Handbag

A one-handed satin dress is elegant enough to be an alluring summer wedding outfit, without being exceedingly flashy. This would definitely make my top three summer wedding guest outfits shortlist for its beauty.

6. Light Yellow Midi Dress with Heels

If you can confirm that none of the bridesmaids are wearing this shade of yellow, it’s a decent fit for any wedding. However, mistakenly matching the bridesmaids’ outfits can be embarrassing.

9. Floral Dress with Heels + Handbag

Floral dresses are a cultural part of weddings and you can show up this way to demonstrate conservative values. Add the purse and the heels and the outfit starts to look better than you think.

10. Floral Midi Dress with Heels + Handbag

Still on floral dresses, here’s another that focuses more on fashion than conservative values. With how elegant she looks, I can make this my default wedding guest outfit for all summer invitations.

11. Red Floral Long Dress with Heels

To become a minor center of attraction during the party, you can consider getting a red dress. Red is naturally inviting, but the style of the dress probably looks better than the colors anyway.

12. Blue Midi Dress with Heels

If you’re not a fan of floral patterns but still need a dress for the wedding, here’s an idea. Even with the seemingly unpopular color, the style looked good enough to warrant a place in this collection.

13. White Shirt with Peach Pleated Skirt + Heels

Going for a wedding with a super-casual theme makes dresses unnecessary. Instead, you can go with a simple top and skirt like in this picture without losing any elegance or comfort.

14. Deep Green Sleeveless Dress with Heels + Handbag

Sleeveless dresses leave a lot of space around your arms, making it easy to keep cool in the summer. In addition to that disadvantage, the dress naturally looks chic, making it an easy pick for any wedding invitation.

15. Yellow Stretch Dress with Heels + Handbag

I never thought I’d want to wear a yellow dress anywhere until I saw this outfit. As long as the yellow doesn’t match that of the bridesmaids, you can look great and not like a wannabe bridesmaid during the wedding.

16. Pink Mini Dress with Heels + Handbag

Back to floral dresses, a pink mini dress sounds like something that works for a summer wedding. Pairing it with a cute little bag and pink heels just adds a whole new level of cohesion to the outfit.

17. Ash Pleated Dress with Boots

If the wedding is taking place outdoors in some place like a beach, this outfit will work perfectly. It’s cool enough for any summer surprises while retaining the chicness of the dress.
