In March, weddings were put on hold for several months. And while we can now attend nuptials for no more than 30 people, if you had an extensive array of RSVPs for 2020, then you'll know that many couples postponed their big day until next year. This means that while you didn't get to celebrate this year, you can start planning your wedding guest dress for the following. At Who What Wear, we lovedresses (you might have noticed), so it gives me great pleasure to look through all the biggest dress trends of this year and the coming season to pick out the more suitable pieces for a wedding. Keep scrolling for our guide to the best wedding guest dress trends for 2020 and beyond.
Style Notes: As seen on Ellie of Slip into Style, this is all about floral dresses that have something fun about them, whether it's bold colours, big sleeves or oversize shoulders.
Bernadette Valentine Floral-Print Crepe Midi Dress (£610)
The Vampire's Wife The Falconetti Floral-Print Silk Midi Dress (£918)
& Other Stories Puff Sleeve Midi Dress (£85)
Return of the Minidress
Style Notes: Take it from us: The minidress is back. Go for long sleeves or a high neck to keep it looking elegant.
Rixo Julie- Abstract 60s Floral Swirl (£265)
& Other Stories Balloon Sleeve Mini Dress (£75)
Kitri Harlow Blue Daisy Print Mini Dress (£120)
Style Notes: Want a neckline that will always make you feel confident? Try the square neck.
Staud Swells Square-Neck Cotton-Blend Dress (£260)
Ganni Ruched Floral-Print Stretch Silk-Satin Midi Dress (£453)
Whistles Milla Square Neck Dress (£179)
Look-at-Me (But Not Too Much) Red
Style Notes: Perhaps a more controversial choice, head-to-toe red is a huge trend for autumn/winter 2020. That said, if you're worried it'll look like you're trying to upstage the bride, you can always check on the dress code.
Queens of Archive Chrissie NYC (£220)
Ganni Ruffled Floral-Print Plissé-Georgette Mini Dress (£175)
Mango Bow Shirt Dress (£36)
Style Notes: Minimalists, if you're looking for a dress you'll get loads of wear from, then it's the two-tone frock. From 16Arlington to Bottega Veneta, this is one of the chicest choices to go for.
16Arlington Morie Two-Tone Knotted Crepe Midi Dress (£595)
Bottega Veneta Two-Tone Sequined Stretch-Knit Midi Dress (£2665)
Iris & Ink Echeveria Two-Tone Cady Midi Dress (£115)
Style Notes: Pleats are back, and they look incredible. While grey might look a bit corporate, if you pair it with red lipstick and gold sandals, you'll find it's transformed. Otherwise, opt for bold colours and prints, and you're guaranteed compliments.
Mango Pleated Skirt Dress (£60)
Mango Pleated Midi Dress (£60)
Self-Portrait Pleated-Chiffon Midi Dress (£340)
Always-Cool Animal Print
Style Notes: Animal print never goes out of style for a wedding, so I couldn't not include it.
Free People Jayde Midi Dress (£158)
Ganni Puff-Sleeve Leopard-Print Wrap Dress (£215)
Faithfull the Brand Gabriela Midi Dress (£199)
