Figuring out what to wear when you’re a guest to a casual wedding can be a nightmare. Your run-of-the-mill fancy wedding means heels and a nice dress – but what happens when your friend’s nuptials are super chill and outdoorsy? Or in a pub? Casual weddings are on the rise, so casual wedding outfits are naturally what we’re searching for.
We’ve rounded up some gorgeous options from around the web for you, if you’re currently looking desperately. The general rule is to go for flats – or casual heels if you’re a heels fan, and consider more relaxed fabrics like linen and cotton over silk. You can also go shorter – usually for weddings we generally stick to mid-length or maxi pants and skirts, but for a casual wedding (depending on vibe and venue) short dresses are fine if they still feel relatively wedding-appropriate.
Don’t want to go shopping? You can make a fancy wedding outfit casual if you team it with a denim or leather jacket and boots – hey, we’re heading into autumn so you’ll likely need the warmth, right? Also, sneakers and fancy dresses is a MASSIVE trend right now, so teaming a really luxe dress with your Cons or Vans can definitely work.
