This edit of festive wear will ensure you’re the chicest attendee at wedding soirees

Budding flowers, sunny days and climbing temperatures can only mean one thing: Wedding season. While the last couple of years have seen plenty of occasions postponed, if not cancelled, wedding planners and brides-to-be seem to agree that 2022 will experience an onslaught of ceremonies. As a recipient of any number of these wedding invites you need to prepare yourself for one daunting task: Figuring out what to wear.

Having spent most of the 2020s in comfort clothing, slipping on a pair of heels and a silky dress feels strangely alien.

Not to speak of the seemingly insurmountable quest to unearth a wedding guest dress you are sure to wear again. So, with all of our RSVPs signed, we've set out to source the best wedding guest dresses for all of those impending nuptials.

Celebrate with a silhouette that suits you, a style that makes the party just a little more festive, and a dress that reflects the love in the air. From classic mirrorwork embroideries to sequins and gota work, there is a dress for everyone and every type of wedding.

A nude colour code? No problem. Gharara pants only? We’ve got you covered. Whether it's lace, sequins, mirrorwork or gota patti, we’re completely mesmerised by the detail and handiwork that goes into some of these ensembles, most of which feature delicate embroideries spread all over the piece, showing how the designer is going all out for this year’s festive wear. For finishing touches, add blingy jewellery as it brings personality as well as style to an outfit.

Whatever the wedding, these dresses will be your new season staples for this year and the years to come.

That said, these are the outfits you need to check out for inspiration if you want to add some metallic glam to your wedding wear wardrobe.
