As if styling yourself for a summer wedding wasn’t already stressful, winter weddings bring a new set of challenges and confusion. Caught between wanting to wear something warm and stylish - it’s hard to know what’s suitable for the special occasion during the colder months.
These five winter wedding dress ideas for guests are the perfect option for the upcoming season. Think polished, elegant and bold without taking attention from the bride but warm enough so you’re comfortable from ‘I Do’ to the dance floor.
The best winter wedding guest dresses in 2022
Flirt with frills this winter wedding season in the extremely striking Selena dress by Rat and Boa. Referred to as their hero dress, she’s provocative and fun. Pair this silk chiffon floor-length number with the Sylvie 1969 patent leather mini top handle bag in emerald green by Gucci for a bold pop of colour. This one is set to sell out any minute now.
Finally, to layer this look we see above on Emma Louise Victoria, add an oversized blazer like Nanushka's 'Mersey' to keep out the winter chill and elevate your look to wedding status. You’ll be amazed at just how soft and buttery this vegan leather feels.
Johanssen with Cue Clothing
The Naomi Gown in Black by Johanssen (as seen in Byron Baes) is all kinds of wonderful and will quickly become your go-to for special occasions throughout the year. This dress is crafted from a slinky fabric to hug and flatter your body while accentuating your waistline. Details we love about this dress include the ruched bodice, elongated leg slit and soft twist detail.
Add a pop of colour to take you from outside to inside by pairing this dress with the Ultra Pink Maxi Coat by Cue, pictured on Olive Cooke, made with Italian wool. This coat features buttons down the middle so you can stay warm and stylish.
The colour black is definitely trending for wedding guest dresses in 2022. If you don’t believe us, then have a look at the Petit Palace Midi Dress by Sir the Label. This black compact knit midi dress features a low scoop neckline and double keyhole detail at the front for a sleek and sexy look. Instead of a little black dress, we want a knit midi black dress, Casey James shows us how to rock it, below.
Pair this dress with a black blazer like the Officine Générale satin-trimmed wool-twill blazer. This blazer is wool-twill with smooth satin trim, so it’s warm and luxurious.
We couldn’t end this guide without including at least one colourful wedding guest dress idea. The Dari Gown by Cult Gaia is simply a masterpiece inspired by a Beverley Morsey painting. From top to bottom, this stunning floor-length dress features a romantic painted-floral burnout fabric, an elastic back strap and two flattering cut-outs that sweep around to the back to accentuate the waist.
This gown is the perfect way to add a pop of colour to a winter wedding. Add some structure to the softness of the gown by topping your shoulders with this Agnes Cropped Crepe Cape by Safiyaa.
The perfect bookend to this fantastic collection of winter wedding dress ideas is the Cup of Ambition Dress by Maggie Marilyn. Made with the right amount of stretch, this dress will move with you throughout the night while keeping its formal and feminine aesthetic. Pair this figure-hugging dress with chunky boots and the GG Marmont super mini bag in blue leather by Gucci to take you from day to night.
