Wedding guest dresses for every shape, style and budget

Wedding guest dresses can be a nightmare to shop for, so we've edited the best styles for you to shop now. From lace to florals and pastels, there's something for every taste and budget...

Wedding guest dresses don't have to be difficult to shop for. This season,styles have got even prettier, with a chic new skirt-length, sophisticated prints and pastel colours all filling the rails.

With everything from high street bargains that will leave you with more to splash on shoes, to designer dresses that really are worth the spend (go on, treat yourself...), we've tracked down something for every style, shape and budget.

If you're after a timeless design that can be recycled over and over again, we suggest considering a classic midi.

A calf-skimming design with a nipped-in waist and full pleated skirt is a figure-flattering option. Pair with some subtle gold hoops, a metallic box clutch and some platforms for understated elegance.

Perfect for those who like to keep it on-trend and directional, this season?s new slip dress revival is for you.

Those wishing to get experimental with more striking wedding guest dresses should go for an asymmetric piece or a striking bold hue. A dipped hemline or single strap will most certainly add a focal point to your ensemble - just keep finishing touches simple.

Graphic prints can also be a great choice if you're after something a little different for a special occasion ? simply team with some towering heels and a pop of bright lipstick to really maximise your wedding outfit. 

Finally, we're firm believers that no round-up of the best wedding guest dresses would be complete without something fabulously floral or lacey. We urge you to be bold and pick something bright to really demonstrate your knowledge of the catwalk trends. 

So, if you are on the hunt for the perfect dress to wear to a wedding, you really need look no further. This is the Marie Claire edit...
