Rent or buy.

Wedding season has been delayed for what feels like forever thanks to COVID-19, but as the plans to ease lockdown draw closer, we’ve been scouring the Internet for beautiful wedding guest dresses we just can’t wait to wear.

Brides and grooms all over the world have been forced to postpone their weddings, often losing money and being left bitterly disappointed by the change in plans.

As things stand, only six guests can currently attend wedding ceremonies, but this number increases to 15 by 12 April, 30 by 17 May, and by 21 June, there will be no restrictions for the number of wedding guests – so what on earth will we wear?

After doing some online window shopping, it’s clear there certainly isn’t a shortage of beautiful wedding guest dresses out there. From eco-friendly rental options, to affordable gowns, here are 17 of the best dresses we could find.
