5 Stylish & Fun Wedding Guest Dresses That Will (Almost) Outshine the Bride
Scouted/The Daily Beast/Retailers.We’ve officially entered wedding season, which means you’ll need something chic and appropriate to wear. While you could whip out any old frock from last year’s wedding season and roll with it, you really deserve a wedding guest dress that’ll make you look and feel amazing. After all, we’re emerging from a pandemic and finally get to dress up again—it’s exciting!Of course, there are some unofficial rules for wedding guest dresses to keep in mind. Wearing white is almost always a huge no-no, and you don’t want to show up in something super revealing or attention-grabbing over fears you’ll upstage the bride.
