A Guide for the Best-Dressed Wedding Guest

Welcome to Wedding Season

With wedding season well underway, consider this the ultimate guide for any wedding guest looking to nail the dress code. You've scored the invite, the dreamy location is locked in and now you're faced with the perenniel question: what to wear?

Finding the perfect dress for a wedding is about more than just style - all best dressed guests must navigate the dress code, colour palettes and even unpredictable weather.

From sun-drenched beaches and garden soirees to cocktail parties and black-tie affairs, ensuring you have the right attire for each setting is essential.


A Cocktail Affair

Grasping the distinction between black-tie and cocktail dress codes can save you from a wardrobe faux pas. Cocktail attire allows for shorter, stylish dresses that are both chic and comfortable. To interpret the dress code, examine the wedding invitation's wording, location, and time of day, to have confidence in your choice of dress.

Begin your search looking for a classic cocktail dress in a midi or maxi length to achieve an effortless but oh-so-chic aesthetic. Whether it's a little black dress or maxi length style, the cocktail dress code is a quintessential go-to for any wedding guest. What's more, a carefully selected cocktail dress has the longevity to be worn again and again.

Known for their stand out formal dresses, BEC + BRIDGE has a curated selection of wedding guest cocktail dresses in timeless palettes.
