These winter wedding guest dresses, gowns and outfits look more expensive than they are. A lot of these winter wedding guest outfits are versatile enough to wear more than once, for holiday parties and date night, etc. I’m loving the bright pinks and rich greens trending for Winter 2021 but I also found some stunning black and neutral styles if you prefer more muted colors or minimalistic looks. As well as some casual winter wedding dresses if the dress code doesn’t call for black tie.
As much as I love sparkly dresses, I’ve left full on sequin numbers to the Christmas party dresses as no one wants to detract from the bride. However, there are still a few with some sparkly embellishments that strike the right balance for my girly girls. As well as casual winter wedding dresses for weddings that aren’t black tie or formal. Your choice of winter wedding guest dress for 2021 is going to come down to the dress code and location as much as personal choice.
This red long sleeve mini dress is pretty lightweight so it’s great for layering with and it has pockets. Which means a mini bag is practical as you can stash everything else in the pockets. It also didn’t need ironing when I took it out of the box for those of you who avoid ironing as much as me.
The necklines tight to get over your head though so definitely dress before doing your hair and makeup. It’s also pretty short (my inseams 31″ and it’s short on me).

My personal favorites are the black fit and flare dress, hot pink ultra feminine long sleeve dress, Bronx and Banco navy midi dress, and stunning green velvet gown which would be perfect for a formal winter wedding guest dress.
Winter wedding guest suits, matching sets & jumpsuits
A pant suit can look super chic at weddings if dress code appropriate. Especially the more tailored versions, in luxe fabrics and styles that don’t look like you’re headed into the office. With the right heels and beautiful accessories these suits and winter wedding guest outfits are stunning and sharp options. There’s even the most gorgeous black velvet maternity suit.
The pink and red blazer dress/jacket also has a matching skirt or pants.
What do you wear to a winter wedding?
Don’t worry too much about being warm as most winter wedding ceremonies and receptions are inside. Instead, go by the dress code and then layer up depending on where you are. A wedding in New York or England’s going to need a warmer coat and shoes than a Vegas, Miami or LA wedding.
Winter wedding dresses with sleeves are always a good option for staying warm and look chic and sophisticated. Also, they mean no worrying about what your arms look like!
One of the biggest rules of dressing for a wedding is to never outshine the bride and groom. Avoid sequined ball gowns, sparkly tiaras, sky-high platform heels, or other articles of clothing that will draw attention away from the bride.Martha Stewart
What to wear with winter wedding guest dresses
It’s pretty easy to layer up your winter wedding guest outfits if you’re in love with one of the sleeveless or more lightweight dresses. Add some tights or a shrug, blazer, pashmina or heavy weight coat. Since most Winter weddings are inside anyway, staying warm shouldn’t be too much of a problem.
When it comes to the shoes it depends on the dress you’ve chosen and whether or not you’re wearing tights. Some of these winter wedding guest outfits will work with boots and with casual winter wedding dresses if it’s not a black tie wedding. Others will look much better with strappy sandals or close toe pumps if you’re wearing tights.
Don’t forget a fabulous bag to finish your winter wedding guest outfit.
