Best Blue Wedding Guest Dresses 2023 – Be the Bride’s Something Blue With These Beautiful Wedding Guest Dresses

Blue is always a good idea.

Last Updated on May 5, 2023

After planning so many outfits for weddings, it either gets exhausting or you start being well-versed in what works and what doesn’t.

Being in that age group where everyone I know seems to be tying the knot, I feel like I attend weddings all the time. There’s always a challenge to find what to wear as a wedding guest, especially when there’s a specific colour-coordinated dress code to follow.

In fact, out of the three weddings I’ve been invited to this year, two of them have a specific colour theme.

While I want to make sure that I am adhering to the dress code, I also have a personal goal in mind: investing in a dress that I can wear again in the future. We all know that the retail industry does come at a cost for the environment

But for me, blue is a foolproof colour to wear to a wedding.It depends on the context and the particular wedding you”re heading to, of course. White and black are the colours to avoid first and foremost as they are typically reserved for the happy couple, and red can be a controversial choice too.

But blue is super versatile, making it one of the best choices IMHO. You really can’t go wrong with pastel or powder blues, particularly if you’re attending a daytime or outdoor wedding, while darker shades are ideal for an evening or more formal nuptials.

Is it okay to wear navy blue to a wedding as a guest?

Wearing a navy blue dress as a guest is totally fine and a great option. It’s a timeless and versatile colour that works so well at evening events

What should a female guest wear to a wedding?

Whatever you want! But if you’re unsure, dresses or jumpsuits are a risk-free option.

Pastel colours are a great option, while tasteful prints like florals work well too.

You’ll want to let the bride stand out in her wedding dress, so avoid any outfits that are too casual.

What is not appropriate to wear to a wedding?

You’ll probably want to complement the couple getting married, rather than steal the spotlight so it’s best to avoid anything too extravagant. Have fun with your outfit, but opt for an outfit that is sophisticated, and tasteful.

While there are plenty of dress options available, it’s important to avoid wearing any super light colours that could be mistaken for white.

But if the couple who invited you specify going big with your outfit, or to wear black or white, go for it.
