If you are attending a wedding as a guest, you want to look your best. Although the bride is obviously the center of attention as it’s her big day, you will want to find the best dress for the event. There are seven dresses that are perfect for weddings that you might want to consider.


When considering womens dress clothes for a wedding, you simply can’t go wrong with a cocktail dress. Something on the shorter side and flowing can make a definite statement and make you feel sexy and elegant. A cocktail dress can reach just above the knee or go three quarters of the way down the leg. It is also the perfect attire whether you are going to a formal or more relaxed wedding.

A great dress for weddings can have any one of a variety of necklines as well. You can choose from off the shoulder, high neck, one shoulder, halter or strapless sweetheart.


Colors for womens dress clothes as a wedding guest are limitless. Of course, you might have a traditional bride and groom who prefer you don’t wear black, but that’s a rarity these days. In addition to basic black, red, pink, blue, green, and even brown or gray work well. The one color you will want to avoid is white because you don’t want to upstage the bride.


While you can certainly go with solid color dresses, you might want to consider getting a lovely pattern. Stripes, whether vertical, horizontal or even diagonal, is an excellent choice. Maybe you prefer polka dots or a floral pattern made up of multiple colors. Whatever you prefer, the sky’s the limit when considering womens dress clothes for a wedding.
