Peak wedding season is fast approaching, which means it’s time for dress shopping. Since it seems 2022 is the “year of the wedding,” now that venues are opening back up and allowing bigger parties, it’s best to be prepared with a few summer wedding guest dress options! There are many factors to consider when shopping, the weather, the location, is it outdoor or indoor, and even the style or theme of the wedding!

The style of each wedding will be different, so Deer Creek wants to help go over some styles of outfits and dresses for a summer wedding.


Dress Styles for a Summer Wedding Guests 

After we’ve considered all the factors, it’s time to break down the different styles that are going to be a hit this summer!


Cut-Out Dresses

Skin is in! Showing off a little more by wearing a dress with cut-outs at the waist, neckline, or back is going to be one of the top trends this season. It also helps that they bring a level of breathability during a summer wedding, but remember – don’t reveal too much skin. It’s still a wedding. 


Bold Colors

Now is not the time for pastels or muted florals. This season is meant for brighter options like hot pink, bright yellow, Kelly green, and more! If the shade you picked brings concerns of drawing too much attention, then opt for a short silhouette and/or minimal accessories. 

Note: Make sure to do research ahead of time to avoid possibly wearing the same color as the bride or bridal party. Non-white dresses are also traditional in some cultures. Just be mindful! 


Slip Dresses

This simple ‘90s silhouette is gaining popularity again in 2022. The only difference is maxi length is the way to go over the shorter hemlines from the past. The maxi length allows for this style to be even more versatile for many different wedding types. They can be dressed up, dressed down, casual, or really whatever you need them to be. 


Strapless Dresses

Strapless dresses for a summer wedding are always a great option. They provide a way for guests to stay cool while still holding on to a classy style. This is another dress style that can be dressed up or dressed down for any occasion.



If dresses aren’t your thing, don’t worry! Being comfortable while keeping to the wedding dress code can be simply achieved with jumpsuits. They are an option of equal parts sleek and sophisticated for your next summer wedding. When shopping, look for elegant fabrics or elevated details like silk or a fitted waist. The options are endless!
