One of the most frustrating or should I say challenging things to do, is to find the perfect wedding guest dress. Nowadays weddings have so many restrictions and requests that it can be nerve wrecking to figure out what to wear. There’s the black-tie wedding and then there’s the everyone wears the same color wedding. What happened to just wear what the heck you want and call it a day. Don’t get me wrong. I get it. Every bride wants that day to not only be special but also look special. That’s why they impose dress codes.
Since wedding season is still in full effect, I’m quite sure there are some of you who are searching high and low for the perfect wedding guest dress. Today, I’m going to do my part to help you out with finding one. This year there are some great plus size options from fast fashion brands and contemporary plus size designers. In my round up, I picked dresses that you can wear again. It is the absolute worst shelling out cash on a wedding guest dress and not being able to wear it again. Like Sweet Brown said, “Ain’t nobody got time for that.” Nor does anyone have money to be wasting like that either.
Back in April, I found myself the perfect wedding guest dress. It was from the Ashley Graham X Pretty Little Thing collection. It’s a chic orange lace laser cut midi dress with a square neckline. It hugs the hips and showcases the girls. In a tasteful way of course. This is the kind of dress that stands out on its own and needs minimal accessories.
I love that I can re-purpose this dress for a luncheon or a dressy summer event. I slipped on a pair of Steve Madden tan suede stacked heels, a jewel encrusted stretch bracelet from Lane Bryant, and a pair of white tassel earrings. I swiped on a bold red lip and was ready to slay.
