From smaller ceremonies just for friends and family to larger outdoor events embracing the warm weather for the big day. These outstanding designer dresses will photograph beautifully and make you feel like celebrating from the moment you put them on.

Whether by a lakeside or on the beach, these summer wedding guest dresses are perfect for outdoor ceremonies. The Lea dress by Sundress is one of our top recommendations for intimate ceremonies with a laid-back vibe. Its mesmerizing shade of green is ideal for summer or spring nuptials whilst the tiered hemline makes an instant impression. Use the tie belt to define your waist and pair this with heeled sandals, or bare feet if you’re on the sand!
Another striking and amazingly affordable dress we’re loving comes from Asos Design. Their cowl neck Burnout maxi is printed with stunning, deep purple florals and has a pretty tie-back making sure you look beautiful from all angles! We’ve no doubt you’ll still want to wear both these dresses again after the big day.
It may seem an obvious choice, but, printed summer wedding guest dresses, especially floral ones, are worn year after year for a reason. Their flowery patterns scream spring and summer whilst their accompanying soft pastel hues are ideal for a celebration in the sunshine. The button-embellished silk crepe de chine midi by Alessandra Rich is one of our favorites for sure. Its subtle shade of light blue is instantly captivating. Meanwhile, the crystal-embellished button detailing, structured sleeves, and V-waistline exude an irresistible modern-vintage charm.
If you really want to go all out with your floral details, opt for the floral halter dress by Oscar De La Renta. Its flattering halter neckline is decorated with the most beautiful appliqué flowers. Additionally, it has a stunning fitted bodice and a voluminous skirt which, elegantly, falls just below the knee. Pair this dress with brightly colored heels for an unforgettable guest look.
