Form-fitting and flattering gowns from Colette by Daphne accentuate your figure in beautifully comfortable fabrics that'll give you all the confidence when Sweet Caroline hits the DJ set. Sheath, a-line and fit and flare silhouettes are paired perfectly with off-the-shoulder, strapless or deep v-neck necklines, and then take it a tasteful step further with a thigh-high slit. You'll feel confident and sexy in a wedding guest dress from Colette by Daphne, but fare-warning - you may steal the spotlight. You can tell the bride it's our fault.

What do you wear to a wedding as a guest dress?

Does the invite declare "black tie attire"? This means dress in your top-notch formalwear. This means wear your best, long evening gown, or a chic, formal cocktail dress - but, pay attention to length. Or, rock a chic pant suit or jumpsuit. If it is a summer wedding, the attire will be a bit more casual. This is your chance for the flirty sundress - short dress or long dress. The one shoulder shimmer stretch sheath gown and the strappy open back in Colette by Daphne style #CL12044 is the perfect example of the formalwear gown to rock as the guest of the wedding.


What color dress should I not wear as a guest of the wedding?

The obvious one - white. Do not wear a white dress, or even an ivory, pearl or off-white dress to a wedding. You want to be respectful of the bride, and the respect the invite you were given to attend this fun, glorious, romantic day. You also want to stray away from head-to-toe, all black attire. This isn't a funeral (regardless of what your views on love may be)! Depending on the season, and the attire-level of the wedding, consider fun and flirty florals. Subtle, pastel colors and tones, and soft floral and pattered designs are always a way to go, as well as most bold, solid primary colors. But, do your best not to accidentally fit in with the bridal party!
