Wedding guest dresses can be a nightmare to shop for, so we've edited the best styles for you to shop now. From winter weddings to destination dos, we've got all bases covered with these gorgeous gowns.

This season, sophisticated prints, fall florals and rich velvets are filling the rails – meaning there are plenty of wedding guest dress options available.

With everything from high street bargains (that will leave you with more cash 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 to see you through the party season too, we suggest one of the versatile floral dresses on the high street. Our favourite is Self Portrait’s darkly demure number.

For fashion forward wedding guests, we recommend you embrace the slip dress revival; H&M’s slinky version can be yours for just £29.99. And for anyone wishing to experiment with a striking silhouette, see Duchess-endorsed and London-based brand Saloni’s neoprene, off-the-shoulder dress.

Pretty lace dresses are always a safe choice for weddings, and from icy blues to flirty reds we’ve found the prettiest options out there. There are plush velvet dresses aplenty too. This key catwalk trend (see Alberta Ferretti, Monse and Giorgio Armani for inspiration) has take over the high street; the plum-coloured Topshop wrap dress is sure to sell out fast.

If you’re looking for an iconic AW16 catwalk dress, Roksanda’s burgundy and blush, silk-blend plissé gown is a true investment piece. We also adore Zimmermann’s romantic scarlet guipure lace dress.

With dresses like these, you don’t nee to worry about accessories, but do check out our edit of the key AW16 high heels and best new season designer handbags.

So, your hunt for the perfect dress ends here. Scroll on to shop the Marie Claire edit…
