The Summer wedding guest dress trends for 2022 include:

  1. Bright colors (if appropriate).
  2. Satin slip dresses you can always add a blazer for modesty at the church service.
  3. Feminine floral dresses.
  4. Fringe dresses
  5. Styles with volume in the shoulders, sleeves and/or skirts.
  6. Cute and colorful blazer and skirt or short coord sets.
  7. Bodycon dresses (just not too sexy).

As always stay away from cream or white unless you’re the bride or it specifically asks you to in the dress code.

What should a guest wear to a summer wedding?

Go for lighter fabrics and colors for summer weddings. Black’s not necessarily a faux par in America (it is in a lot of other countries) but doesn’t really look appropriate for Summer. Especially when there are so many other colors you could wear. Plus, if you’re going to be outside a lot in the heat, black is the worst color for making you feel even hotter and sweatier. Probably not the look you’re going for.

If in doubt about anything, avoid it and go for another option. This is a pretty good wedding guest attire cheat sheet for US weddings. Wedding guest coord sets are also another option for Summer weddings and easy to layer if the weather’s looking a bit hit or miss.

Summer wedding guest dresses 2022

It’s almost Summer and a lot of styles I’ve been adding have been selling out fast. 2022 is probably the busiest wedding season ever since so many people had to postpone their weddings over the last couple of years.

What colors should I wear to summer weddings

Pretty much anything but black and white (which I mentioned above). Normally I wouldn’t add the brightest colors as you don’t want to upstage the bride. However, wedding etiquette rules are always changing and if the brides fashion forward she’ll want her guests to look and feel their best. So since bright colors are a major fashion trend this year, unless it’s a really formal dress code, I say go for it.

If you’ve been reading this blog for a while you’ll know that my style is very feminine so most of these Summer dresses for wedding guests are elegant and romantic.
