Wedding Guest Outfits for Over 50's

It's Wedding season! And all you need is LOVE... and a killer outfit! 


Wedding guest outfits for over 50's can be tricky because you don't want to land in the same outfit as your 23 year old niece and you definitely don't want to land in the same outfit as your 80 year old neighbour! To be honest I wouldn't want to land in the same outfit as anyone... I once went to a wedding in the same outfit as my sister-in-law... talk about a nightmare! 


Weddings are exciting events that require a huge amount of preparation, especially when it comes to your outfit and dressing up! When you're over 50, finding that perfect outfit can be a bit of a challenge. But it doesn't have to be! In this blog we are going to delve into what is popular in this category and we will take a look at some wedding guest outfits for over 50's that will make you look and feel fabulous! 


We at Style Boutique believe that the outfit you pick should be a true reflection of you! Your outfit should help you look and feel your utmost best! So, firstly consider a dress that flatters your figure. If you are an hourglass shape try something a little fitted. If you are an apple shape why not go some something with a little movement like this stunning dress from Godske!

We have also seen a HUGE influx of women wearing trouser suits to weddings! Especially women over 50, as not everyone wants to get their legs out! Why not pair the stunning Joseph Ribkoff Trousers with a beautiful blouse and tailored jacket. You can dress your best no matter what age you are! We have found that Wedding guests are getting more glamorous each and every season


With Spring and Summer on our doorstep we have seen an increase in outfits featuring pastel colours and soft hues. Spring weddings are see more of gorgeous light pastel colours like blush pink and in Summer there tends to be a rise in pops of bold colour like Royal Blue and Hot Pink!

This dress is perfect for a wedding guest over 50! It hugs all the right places but isn't too revealing. It is long enough that it is modest but fitted enough that its a little flirty! It is perfect! 


Accessories can make a big difference in your overall look. A Statement necklace or earrings can add a touch of glamour to your outfit. Add a clutch to carry your essentials and you are ready for the day! 


I had a chat with some of the lovely women on the shop floor and we put together a little list of things to consider when dressing for a wedding when you are over 50! 


1. Dress for your shape! - It is vital that you dress for your figure! Just because you are over 50 does not mean you need to hide that wonderful figure of yours! 

2. Think about how long you are going to be on your feet! If it will be a while ensure you wear comfortable shoes... I said comfortable... not flats... your 50 not 105, you can still be stylish! 

3. Don't upstage the bride! It's her day! You can still look fabulous without wearing white or cream! 

4. Try not to wear something too short or too revealing! You don't want to look like mutton dressed as lamb! 

 5. Don't lose sight of who you are. Your outfit is supposed to be a reflection of you, not the other way around! 

Those are Style Boutiques top tips for dressing for a wedding when you are over 50!
