Here’s a curated list of the different types of wedding guests to help you determine which type you are. Then, we will discuss the best types of wedding guests gowns for you. Check out the different types of wedding guests below and read more to find out what kind of dress style is perfect for you and your personality!
The Emotional One-Wedding Guest Dress
If you are going to crying through the ceremony and before dinner speeches by the wedding party then you may want to consider a dress that will not showcase your falling tears. This means you should wear a thicker fabric with some texture. Lace dresses in a darker color are wonderful ways to camouflage your dropping tears. Jasmine Bridal has the most available lace wedding guest gowns in the industry! You can choose a short or long lace dress and have at least 12 colors to choose from and sometimes you can choose more colors. Although, we cannot stop you from crying, a beautiful lace dress will hide any excess moisture and tears that may fall onto the dress. You may want to consider a color that will not show water drops, too. A light blue, black, or navy lace dress is very chic for a guest of the wedding. These colors will keep you from standing out while you are getting emotional and will allow you to shine once you pull yourself together! Feel better emotional wedding goer- we know you just have a lot of feelings.
The Party Animal-Wedding Guest Dress
These are usually the most fun types of wedding guests because they are not crying in the corner over an emotional speech, or sitting in the corner criticizing every wedding detail like the jealous “friend”. You can usually find the party animal in the center of the dance floor or posted up at the open bar. Either way, when you are partying it up, you will want to look fabulous and feel comfortable as we do not want any unfortunate wardrobe malfunctions to happen. (Wardrobe malfunctions may include but are not limited to nip slips, broken heels, or accidentally stuffing the skirt into their pantyhose before heading back to the dance floor.) For these reasons, we highly recommend wedding guest dresses that allows you to dance and move about the wedding comfortably. In general, a knee length dress is idea because you will not be tripping over the skirt while making your way over to the dessert table and the standard knee length measurement for all Jasmine Bridal products is 25 inches, which is a good length because it’s short enough to not trip and long enough that no one will catch a glimpse of your under garments while you are busting moves on the dance floor. Another dress detail that may be important for the party animal guest of the wedding is to avoid any strapless dress style. Strapless dresses can be gorgeous but are not practical if you want to bounce around the room talking with other guests, dancing on the dance floor or simply throwing back vodka and cranberries at the bar. Choose a dress with straps may be just what you want! A guest of the wedding guest gowns with straps is ideal because you will not have to worry about your dress falling down or any unfortunate nip slips. Another really awesome tip for the wedding guest that wants to celebrate all night is to choose a dress with a nice fabric. Jasmine Bridal recommends a soft dupioni dress fabric because dupioni is very forgiving fabric and keeps its structure throughout the night. This way, you can party all night long but look your best! Jasmine Bridesmaids dresses offer a wide variety in dupioni styles that are simple, or have lace and/or sequin details. You can find the perfect dress in this collection while also keeping the cost of your dress down. When you are the life of the party, we do not have any color limitations on your dress choice, except advise you to never wear white or ivory when attending a wedding unless specifically requested to do so. When you choose from any of Jasmine’s Special Occasion lines, you have so many color options that you can find the perfect color to compliment your style. Right now, we are loving a rich emerald green, soft petal pink dress, or even something more vibrant like Grapefruit can get the party started!
You may feel most comfortable at a small table with a group of people they are familiar with, but this should never limit you for dress options. Also take note, you may only be shy at this wedding because you do not know the majority of people. That is OK, relax. Wear a dress you love. We want you to choose something very classic and elegant. Just because you do not want to stand out or be the life of the party, you should still look fabulous in your guest of the wedding dress. We recommend buying a more classic color like Navy, Silver, Black, Metallic Gold, Gray or even a more bold “classic” color like Bordeaux or a wine inspired color could be very elegant. Most women are more comfortable in a knee length cocktail dress but a floor length gown may be just what the shy wedding guest needs to feel her most glamorous. To bring you more out of your shell and mingling with the rest of the wedding guests, you should make sure you feel very comfortable in your guest of the wedding dress.The more comfortable and beautiful you feel, the more likely you are to enjoy yourself and the company that is surrounding you.
The Childhood Friend
This type of wedding guest has a few different types of friendship levels. You may still be just as close with the bride or groom as you were when you were children or you may not have spoken since third grade. Either way, when one of your childhood friends is getting married, it can be a very nostalgic moment for you both. When you attend a childhood friend’s wedding you want to show up in a guest of the wedding dress that shows how much you have grown up.
