The bride might be the star of the wedding, but it doesn’t mean you can’t be the best dressed guest.

Getting invited to a wedding is delightful, but it can be a struggle if you are not sure what to wear. Even though dress codes are often indicated on invitations, it can still be difficult to find stylish and suitable dresses for a wedding.

Luckily, to help you prepare, Yoorekka prepared a list of five wedding dresses and where to buy them. There are suggestions for each of the most common wedding dress codes, so you can stop stressing out wondering if your dress meets the requested attire. Check out these beautiful wedding dresses!

For a wedding with a semi-formal dress code, you don’t have to wear floor-length gowns. Opt for cocktail dresses as long as several inches below the knee. Choose a style with a classic silhouette and eye-catching hue. For example, the Divina off-shoulder draped mini dress in purple from Ava PH is an elegant modern cocktail dress fit for a formal function. Its shiny fabric and rich color add sophistication to the overall appeal, while the low thigh slit shows just the right amount of skin. You can style this dress in many ways: you can wear it with bold makeup and a lip color that matches the dress or go minimal, as shown above.

2. Midi Fit and Flare Dress

Best for: A wedding with a casual or daytime dress code
Where to buy: ForMe
Price: PhP1,098

A casual dress code doesn’t mean you have to come to the wedding in denim jeans and a t-shirt. Simple and fun sundresses will be your best choice. If you want to stand out from the crowd, choose pieces in bright colors or quirky prints. For example, this mustard yellow dress from ForMe will make you a walking ray of sunshine in any wedding. It is casual with a hint of fun and a youthful vibe. The keyhole design at the back also adds a flirtatious touch. To style, wear minimal makeup paired with a simple hairstyle as shown by the model above.

3. Bow Linen Dress

Best for: A beach wedding
Where to buy: Mango
Price: PhP3,995

Beach weddings are popular among couples, so it’s almost inevitable to be invited to one. Compared to other ceremonies, weddings held by the sea are usually laid-back and chill. To get the beach vibe without skimping on style, opt for printed dresses. In terms of silhouettes, skip bodycons and choose something flowy instead. If you want something stylish and comfortable, Mango’s bow linen dress might be the one you’re looking for. Since it is made from breathable linen fabric, you’ll be comfortable throughout the ceremony even as it gets humid.

4. Mini Dress with Tie Detail

Best for: Church weddings
Where to buy: Bershka
Price: PhP1,595

A traditional church wedding is still the most common way to celebrate one’s union, and if you’re invited to one, pick a dress that is modest and not too over the top as a sign of respect to the sanctity of the place. Conservative doesn’t mean boring, though; look for a dress that has a little twist, like Bershka’s mini dress with tie detail. It’s low-key but it has side leg slits that add flair without showing too much skin. The tie detail at the front also adds some dimension to the shape of the dress. You can choose from three colors: pink, khaki, cream, and black. Because the dress is simple, pair it with accessories to dress it up.

5. Pleated Wrap Maxi Dress

Best for: A wedding with a formal and black tie dress code
Where to buy: Love Curves PH
Price: PhP1,699

If you’re not a fan of floor-length dresses, you can go for one that falls around your shins.

When it comes to black-tie weddings, long dresses are the surefire way to meet the dress code. This kind of wedding lets you go on full glam mode from head to toe. It doesn’t mean you have to rent a full ball gown, though; maxi dresses will do just fine, as long as the fabric and print are sophisticated enough. Moreover, the dress doesn’t have to be floor-length or risqué to draw attention. For a comfortable attire fit for a black-tie wedding, consider Love Curve’s pleated wrap maxi dress. It features a silhouette which flatters even the curviest body, and this is complemented by a v-neckline that gives a little hint of sexiness to the overall look. The dress also has side pockets and a charm belt that can accentuate your waist. Complete your look with a full face of makeup that highlights your best features.
