Three maternity wedding guest dresses

Did you recently get invited to some upcoming nuptials?

Because they are such an infrequent event in our lives, it can be hard to know what to wear.

In this post, you’ll get ideas for what to wear to a wedding as a female guest so that you can fit in, feel comfortable, and enjoy the event.


When you receive a wedding invite, it may come with a dress code. This is a common occurrence if the wedding is taking place at a formal location, is an evening wedding, or the bride wants the wedding to have a theme.

If no dress code is noted in the invite, it’s safe to assume the following standards are adhered to.


Because weddings are very special events and often occur in a church or synagogue, there is a level of formality and respect you’ll want to consider when choosing an outfit.

If the ceremony occurs at a church or synagogue, you’ll want to have your shoulders covered. That doesn’t mean you can’t wear a strapless or off-the-should dress, just wear a wrap or shawl during the ceremony.


You may be wondering what colors you can wear to a wedding as well as what colors should you avoid.

Weddings are a joyous event be sure to reflect that in what you are wearing with color.

Since many of us tend to wear neutral colors most of the time (beige, khaki, black, navy, gray), think of a wedding as a time to have fun with color!

Do you have a favorite color? Go full-on in a dress in that shade.

Floral prints are also a great way to engage in the feelings of the special event.

For afternoon weddings opt for pastels or bright colors while evening weddings darker shades are also acceptable.

There are only two colors you want to avoid when dressing for a wedding – white and black.

Don’t wear white because the bride will most likely be wearing white and you want to be sure she stands out – it’s her special day.

You also want to steer clear of black because black is most often reserved for funerals. Now, as I’ve mentioned before there could be changes to this rule. The first could be if the bride is having a themed wedding and requests her guests wear black. The second is if it is an evening or black-tie wedding, then you have a green light on black attire.


All of the outfits featured below are dresses because they are most commonly worn to weddings.

However, you can also wear a jumpsuit, pantsuit, or skirt outfit so long as it’s dressy enough for the occasion.


Longer-length dresses are an excellent option for weddings. Midi dresses also known as tea-length dresses hit below the knee to mid-calf length, while maxi dresses are long-length dresses that reach from the ankles to the floor.

The midi and maxi dresses below include cocktail dresses, a-line, shirtdress, fit and flare, shifts, and swing styles. Look for interesting details and textures such as eyelets, floral prints, pompoms, tassels, slits, bows, and ruffles.

What To Wear To A Wedding Postpartum

For postpartum women, the key to looking great on your wedding day is wearing clothing that flatters. Your fashion sense will really shine when you’re no longer in bed resting and have time to give special attention to your wardrobe. It’s not just your outfit, it’s also how you feel and how you carry yourself. You’ll want to feel confident, sexy, and cool without being too dressed up or taking a serious tone in one of the most important days of your life! Keep it simple with a good pair of everyday designer jeans and a cute top that fits well. Dress for the occasion with a phenomenal pair of heels that compliment your outfit; when in doubt go for something neutral like black! And remember to accessorize! Regardless of what you decide to wear to your wedding postpartum it is always best to keep it simple and elegant as possible.

We’re making an educated guess that, according to your calendar, 2022 is the summer, autumn and winter of love. In fact, the UK Weddings Task Force (yes that’s a thing) forecasts that there will be a whopping 350,000 weddings this year. That’s nearly 200,000 more weddings than in pre-pandemic years. And while this is super exciting – let’s face it, getting dressed for a wedding is tricky at the best of times, let alone when you’re pregnant, staring at your existing clothes and wondering if they’ll ever fit you again.

The good news is that it does present the perfect excuse to go shopping – an activity anyone can get on board with. Since you’ll probably have less stamina for browsing while you’re pregnant, it pays to do a bit of research in advance and consider your options before you set out. That way, you don’t waste time marching around stores that don’t stock maternitywear or trying on items that just won’t work with a bump.

Here are a few things to bear in mind before you splash the cash…

Watch The Waist

There will come a time when you’re growing bump might start to strain against your waistline, which won’t be comfortable for a long day of celebrations, trust us. Dresses with an empire-line that are cut under the bust are much easier to wear as they’ll flow over your tummy and be much less constraining.

Floaty Is Your Friend

Kaftan and smock-style dresses are not only super-chic, but are preggo-friendly too. You’ll find lots of great floaty dresses this season; stylish but also great bump-coverers.

Size Is Just A Number

Not all shops stock a dedicated maternity dress range but you can still find items in non-maternity collections that would work, provided you go up a couple of sizes. Shape and fit is much more important than size here, so make sure you opt for a style that makes you feel comfortable and try it on in a couple of options if necessary.

Longer Is Better

When shopping for dresses, look carefully at the hemlines and make sure you have a bit of slack built in for when the bump gets bigger. If necessary, go a size up to get the length right.

Don’t Be Afraid Of Bodycon

There’s nothing more beautiful than a bump so don’t feel conditioned to hide away in layers of tulle if that’s not your style.

And finally, why not consider renting? Not only is this better for your purse, but it’s kinder on the environment, too – plus you can borrow a dress from around £20, in any size required for your whatever stage of pregnancy you’re at – win-win.
