LACE AND WIDE SKIRT GOWNS

Open Front Top and Tie Back Lace Dress from LILIGAL at $34.49

Sizes: S – 2XL

This gown is a great choice to wear this season. Besides  its affordable price, this dress contains a detachable top that is very light which gives the option to either take it off or leave it depending on the temperature. Too afraid to wear silver to a wedding? No worries, this gown comes in 3 different colors which are silver, navy blue and wine red. The choice is yours.

Please feel free to wear this dress with some silver open toes shoes and a mini purse. Be careful especially when accessorizing. You don’t need to wear a necklace or big earrings with this dress. it’s only going to overwhelm the gown. Keep it simple. Wear your hair up in a messy or tight bun, keep your eye make up nice and simple, but add on some dark lipsticks for that nice evening look.

Rose lace Wedding guest dresses

PRODUCT DETAILS

This dress is both sexy and elegant. I love the way it hugs the body. So if you’re a curvy girl or a lady who would love to look curvier than usual than this gown is just the one for you. Perfect for your summer wedding. If you like this dress so much but aren’t a fan of showing off your shoulder, than don’t worry. You can always add on an either black or red satin scarf.

This is a great dress for those who aren’t afraid to be dark and bold. And by dark, I don’t mean Gothic. What I mean by dark is that you wouldn’t be afraid to wear a smokey eye makeup with some dark red lipsticks. In one word, Old Hollywood Glam.

 

Strappy Cold Shoulder Maxi Dress from LILIGAL at $33.03

Sizes: 0X-3X

Product Detail

  • V-neck
  • 95% Polyester, 5% Spandex
  • Hand Wash, Machine washable

Besides its elegance and affordable price, this dress can be worn on different occasions such as Prom or wedding, as either a bridesmaid or as a guest. It’s great for both the Spring and the Summer.

A messy bun or Kim K hairstyle, some gold open toes shoes and mini gold purse are great choices for this dress. When it comes to make up, well a nice burgundy lipstick will make you stand out more.

To avoid having a bare neck, I’ll recommend that you add on an either round or Y style necklace. Some rhinestone earrings would also add a nice touch to your look. Just be sure that they aren’t too big.

It is also suitable to be worn as a bridesmaid or prom dress. Long earrings are ideal for this style, and it doesn’t require you to wear a necklace.

Avoid wearing dark shoes with it. some very soft color shoes and/or purse are usually ideal.

 

CITY CHIC’s Devotion Maxi Dress from CoEDITION at $159

Sizes: 14-20

 

Product detail

  • Pleaded Bodice detail
  • High neckline with adjustable back keyhole ties
  • Satin lined, Invisible back zip closure
  • Fitted Waist
  • 95% Polyester, 5% Elastane
  • Hand wash

Ever wonder what it’ll look like to be both elegant and sexy? Well, this dress can make you feel and look it. I understand that most plus-size women aren’t comfortable with showing off their arms and that okay, because scarf of similar style (light fabric) and color can help hide the arms and make this dress even more elegant.

Some golden shoes are ideal for this gown. And, to make you stand out more, I’ll suggest that you either put your hair up on a messy bun or down like shown in the picture above. A Necklace is not necessary, however, some long earrings (like in the picture) would be a great choice for it.

 

ELEGANT AND FLORAL

CITY CHIC’s Rose Jewel Maxi Dress – Black from CoEDITION at $139 Sizes: 14-24

Product Detail

  • Deep semi sweetheart neckline

  • V-Boning around neck and thick straps
  • Fitted waist

I absolutely love this dress! It’s sexy, stylish and elegant. And, it’s also the type of dresses that can be worn in many different occasions. Its semi sweetheart neckline is just the right amount to show a little cleavage (nothing wrong with that). I believe that this dress is for those who want to boost their confidence and for those who want to look different than they usually do.

A Kim K hairstyle and some smokey eyes makeup are great choices for this dress. This can also be worn exactly as in the picture or any other ways. Some black, silver or golden high heels sandals would look great with it.

Got a destination wedding to attend? Then bingo! This dress has the right color and style for a destination wedding or even a regular wedding. But don’t let yourself be limited by only wearing this for weddings. This dress can be worn to prom, homecoming, graduation, etc. I got to say, this dress is such a good investment.

Some shiny (not shimmering) heels sandals would look great with the dress. Also, I like how the model in the picture above has her hair. You can also wear your hair down if you’d like, but be sure to have some loose curls. Small floral hair pieces would actually look great for those planning to attend a destination wedding.

MORE UPSCALE DRESSES

Wedding guests don’t always have to wear lace and shimmery gown. Sometimes, all you need is to look classy. And that’s where we are. Below, I provided three amazing dresses for respectable madams/ mademoiselles who want to look classy and expensive without braking their banks.

The dress can be worn by anyone such as guests or family of the bride. These gowns are really good first impression dresses especially if you’re the  date to the brother of the bride and it’s your first time to meet the entire family.

Remember to keep things light when accessorizing. A little bit goes a long way.

Most people don’t get invited to weddings or parties too often. That’s why, it is extremely important to take advantage of the opportunity and dress your best. Don’t always be too quick to look at the price tags but instead, search for quality because, these are the types of events that would require you to spend a little more than you usually do. So, don’t be afraid to spend a little extra.

If you liked any of these dresses and would like to purchase them, please feel free to click on the picture of your desired item to precede with the purchase. My suggest is to make sure that you order your outfits two weeks to a month in advance just to ensure that it suits you 100%.

 

I really hope that you liked the outfit that I provided. Please tell me which one is your favorite and also, ask me about any questions that you may have about these outfits. Keep in mind that I can also help you find clothes that are not listed above. Just tell me the style you’re looking for and I’ll help you do the search.

 

Thank you, and have a great time!

Now obviously this isn’t my forte hahaha but I’d be extremely confident sharing and recommending this to friends, knowing that they are in good hands when it comes to making a decision. In fact, I will definitely be sharing this!!!
