With love most certainly in the air right now, I thought it was about time that I did a bit of homework for us all and curated a list of my favourite wedding guest outfits that summer ’22 has to offer... 
I don’t know about you but it feels like my Instagram feed has blown up in recent weeks with weddings, hen dos and bridal showers, en masse. 
With love most certainly in the air therefore, I thought it was about time that I did a bit of homework for us all and curated a list of my favourite wedding guest outfits that spring/summer ’22 has to offer. 

With that in mind, below you’ll find my favourite wedding guest dresses for ’22 – a mix of designer and high street, pastels and brights. I’ve also included a STUNNING jumpsuit and co-ord set because I couldn’t help myself / I’m nice like that..!  

Without further ado therefore…



This H&M dress reminds me of a high end Erdem piece and is the stand out number from H&M’s collection this year, if you ask me. Tailored to perfection with a print that radiates joy, it looks like it’s worth so much more than it’s current price tag.


This olive green, 100% silk dream from Reiss won me over in an instant with its flowing and flattering design. Not only will it ensure that you keep cool and comfortable all day but it will also look stunning dressed up by night. 


Oasis have come into their own this year and this flattering, ruffled mint green maxi dress is proof of that. For me, it’s a fairy tale dress for a fairy tale wedding. Guaranteed to delight all who lay eyes on it.


Another Oasis beauty, this floral mini dress stands out from the crowd. Offering the perfect excuse to show off your tan, it doubles up as a gorgeous holiday dress too!


This gingham halter neck fits to perfection and hits the spot if you’re keen to show off your arms and shoulders at any forthcoming nuptials! Accessorised with my Castaner wedges, it’s an easy win if you ask me.


Another dreamy dress for a destination wedding, this cut out design oozes playful charm. Though I personally prefer the paler beige design, the lime green alternative is bound to impress too.


Lydia Millen X Karen Millen

Looking for something floaty and floral? This is one of my favourite pieces from my latest collection with Karen Millen and is absolutely perfect for a country wedding if you ask me…

Emilia Wickstead via Net-A-Porter

From its corset style bodice to it’s sweetheart neckline, this Emilia Wickstead number instantly caught my eye. Playful and fun, it’s guaranteed to attract attention… without upstaging the bride, of course.

The Vampires Wife via Net-A-Porter

You can always rely on The Vampires Wife to make a statement and this pink floral number certainly does just that. Emblazoned with flowers, bows and ruffled trims, it oozes romance, elegance and that all-important charm.


The olive green tones of this Zimmermann dress make me think of summer days in Provence or Italy… The perfect dress for a wedding abroad if you ask me. Not to mention, wondering around cobbled streets in search of a pastry the following morning!

Free People

I’m utterly in love with this maxi dress from Free People… whimsical, classy, elegant, unique. It’s truly such a magical dress and one that instantly took my breath away.


Reformation have excelled themselves this season and this dress is only testament to that. For me, it’s the perfect wedding guest dress for a countryside wedding (and doubles up as a perfect dress for a summer soiree in the garden too!)



Ok, ok, it’s technically not a wedding guest dress… but it is the most stunning jumpsuit on the market right now so I’m secretly hoping that you’ll let me off? Guaranteed to command attention, this is definitely not a jumpsuit for those looking to blend into the crowd.


This elegant, draping design from Cortana is not only flattering but utterly flawless if you’re off to a black tie wedding this summer. Not only is the colour exquisite but the block colour allows you to have fun with accessories too. 

Victoria Beckham

It was the back of this Victoria Beckham dress that instantly caught my eye. Classy and demure for the service? Tick. Playful and fun for the dance floor? Also, tick!


Destination wedding? I’ve got you covered! I wore this two piece on the beach in the Maldives and couldn’t help but think it would make the dreamiest beach wedding outfit too! Bright, daring, bold, playful… it’s the perfect two piece for a summer of love.


From the halter neck neckline to the dramatic length, this Reformation dress will ensure that you don’t blend into the crowd. For me, it’s a timeless design that does no wrong. An investment for summers to come, I’m sure.



I love the simplicity of this mint green dress from Theory (so much so that I included it in my linen outfit edit too!). Paired with the esparadilles that I mentioned above, it’s a guaranteed winner for an English barn wedding or a glorious summer wedding outdoors. 

Jonathan Simkhai via Net-A-Porter

The hem of this porcelain pink Jonathan Simkhai dress reminds me of swaying my way onto the dance floor – a v.important part of a half decent wedding, right?! Timeless, minimalist and oh so chic, it’s a stunning design that can be worn again and again. 


Black tie wedding? Say no more! This silk wrap over dress is effortlessly stunning and commands attention for all the right reasons. 


Forgive me but I’m including this Reformation dress twice on this list because I can’t choose between ‘Audrey’ or ‘Celadon’ so both it is! For me, both shades are absolutely stunning and will ensure that you’re one of the best dressed in the room, by far!


Simply stunning. Enough said.

So there you have it! 22 wedding guest dresses for ’22. I hope that you’ve found this list helpful and I hope you have an amazing summer celebrating all things love!

Hello April, the most exciting month of them all!
Ad Embarking on a journey of timeless treasures, my passion for antiquing began in the warmth of late summer 2019. When I discovered my father’s old boarding school tuck trunk nestled in the attic of their home. Since then, my weekends have unfolded like chapters in a novel, meandering through antiques emporiums and brocantes across the country.

Each trip unveils a tapestry of tales from bygone eras - from weathered pickling jars and vases to opulent French chandeliers and steamer trunks, and with each trip, I was captivated by the hidden secrets and untold histories woven into each artefact.

Introducing ‘Scented Mementos’ - an enchanting limited edition collection by @jomalonelondon Each fragrance, a symphony of memories, encapsulates the essence of cherished moments. Immerse yourself in the zesty allure of Emerald Thyme, or indulge in the spicy nostalgia of Ginger Beer, where notes of ginger, roasted oak, and cinnamon intertwine to evoke memories of British antiques markets.
where every scent is a love letter to the past, a fragrant homage to the beauty of antiquity. #ScentsOfBritain #JoMaloneLondon Paid partnership
