Wedding season is here (Picture: Getty/Kitri/Revolve/Topshop)

Wedding season is in full swing.

After a delay of a few years (thanks Covid), our calendars are filled with ceremony and reception dates.

At the best of times, this stage of the year can cause mass panic and this season is coming with added stress.

You see, an extended break means we have forgotten how to dress as a wedding guest.

From beach weddings to country soirees, the lines of event dressing have become blurred. Different outfits suit different locations, themes and soiree styles.

However, never fear because Metro.co.uk is here.

Whether you are being invited to the city or the country, we have put together a comprehensive selection of wedding guest dresses to suit all types of nuptials.

Beach wedding

For a beach ‘I do’ stick to light fabrics and bright colours. We love Kitri’s floral midi dress. It’s shape is seriously flattering and will work all summer long.

Black tie requires full length, so don’t be afraid of all out glam when it comes to a wedding such as this. Revolve’s halter neck red maxi dress is sure to make an impact.

Casual wedding

Casual weddings can be tricky. What exactly can be deemed casual in fashion if it isn’t jeans and a t-shirt? Well, we advise to stick with plain coloured garments in linen and cut out styles. These dresses are more relaxed but remain stylish.

A city wedding in the summer is all about fun, and mini dresses are our top choice. We adore Chasing Dawn’s floral mini which is meant to be worn with the highest heels for an ode to New York queen Carrie Bradshaw.
