Wedding season is officially in full swing. Whether your calendar is packed full of summer weddings or you’re jetting off to a destination wedding, you want to put your best foot forward. 2023 has given us some of the best wedding guest trends yet.
We’re rediscovering timeless classics like the wedding fascinator headband and making a statement with quirky accessories and luxurious fabrics. Land yourself a spot on the ‘best dressed guest list’ at every wedding this season with these five trends.
1. Elevated Co-Ords
Co-ords are the ultimate multi-tasker in your closet. Mix and match co-ord sets to create looks that suit any wedding dress code. It’s the perfect trick if you have a social calendar full of wedding events this summer. Crop tops and maxi skirts are the co-ord set of the moment but don’t overlook a feminine pantsuit.
2. Quirky Clutch Bags
We’ve all been guilty of putting together a wedding guest outfit without thinking about our bags. While outfits become more muted and minimalistic, the quirky clutch bag is having its day in the sun.
Consider the venue and wedding theme when choosing the clutch bag to style with your outfit. A bamboo bag is the perfect plus one for a sea side wedding, while a beaded clutch is the perfect accompaniment for a boho theme.
3. Hair Fascinators for Wedding Guests
Small fascinators are one of the biggest wedding guest trends in the UK. Celebrities like the Princess of Wales, Amal Clooney, and Angelina Jolie are breathing new life into the traditional headpiece. It’s a signature British fashion trend that dominates every wedding season.
A wedding fascinator headband gives you comfort and glamour, elevating your outfit without balancing a hat on your head. Our ‘Danielle' occasion headband incorporates sculptural knotted mesh for a modern update on the classic fascinator styling.
4. Disposable Cameras
One of the funniest wedding guest trends in 2023 isn’t fashion related. Disposable cameras are back with a bang, becoming the must-have accessory for every wedding guest. While selfies and outfit pictures are essential for a wedding, there’s a nostalgia around disposable cameras that you can’t recreate through an iPhone screen.
Pick up a disposable camera to throw into your clutch bag or jacket. They’re an affordable way to add a special touch to your experience as a wedding guest. With ‘unplugged’ weddings on the rise, a disposable camera is the perfect way to snap a few shots without the temptation of scrolling through your phone.
5. All Things Satin
Satin is one of the stand-out wedding trends for 2023. Whether it’s a wedding fascinator headband or a dress, adding satin will give your outfit a luxury feel. Satin slip dresses are a wedding guest outfit you’ll re-wear all year long. They’re also the perfect choice if you’re searching for a pregnancy-friendly wedding guest outfit.
