Fashion Files: What to Wear as a Wedding Guest in 2021

Wedding season is officially kicking off and I'm honestly really looking forward to it. Last year, I was supposed to have a ton of weddings but that of course, got pushed back to this year. Now, starting this coming weekend is a marathon of weddings and I cannot wait. I have three weddings this summer, one in the fall, and then three next year.

That means I will need a ton of dresses, especially when the guests overlap, which they will occasionally. Dress shopping always stresses me out and makes me really upset. When I was younger and would go dress shopping for proms, dances, parties, I would usually end up hysterical crying, and having a panic attack. I hated how I looked in the mirrors, hated how the lighting made my skin look... it was just always a disaster.

Now, I just shop online and hope for the best. I've gotten a better understanding of what looks good on me and I can shop confidently, though with some hesitancy because I just can't shake the teenager out of me. 

What I've learned from blogging and social media is that weddings are different all over the country. Some are extremely casual, some are in the middle, and others are really high class and formal. Here in New York, they fall into the last category. I've never been to a wedding that wasn't over the top and extremely formal. They might not be black tie or even black tie optional but they're up there.



Going to a wedding in New York, especially an Italian-American wedding like I usually frequent, you have to be dressed up. Overdressed is best, honestly. I always keep that in mind when I'm shopping and over the years, have come up with a nice collection of dresses that will keep me in business for weddings to come. 

With that in mind, I've rounded up some of my picks for best wedding guest dresses when you have to be dressed to the nines. Almost all of these dresses are from Nordstrom because that's where I usually buy my dresses. They have a huge selection, tons of sizes and styles, and have a great return policy. 

Also, these dresses could work for any season because if your wedding is inside, there is air conditioner so it won't matter if something is a thicker material or long sleeve...


PS: DO NOT WEAR WHITE OR CREAM OR ANYTHING THAT CAN BE MISTAKEN FOR WHITE TO A WEDDING THAT ISN'T YOURS. xoxo B
