A calligraphed envelope has landed on your doorstep, you’ve saved the date, and you’re excited to celebrate the happy couple, but finding the best wedding guest outfit to wear to the nuptials can be tricky.

And while there’s a lot to think about, picking the perfect style doesn’t have to be stressful. Whether it’s a formal black-tie affair or the focus is on the decadent all-night party, there’s something for everyone at Galia Lahav. From statement gowns to sleek jumpsuit alternatives or head-turning party looks, making memorable moments has never been easier.

Pink Lady

The best part about a wedding – aside from cheering on the happy couple, celebrating their love and being embedded in their once-in-a-lifetime memories – the photo opportunities of course. And this satin, swoon-worthy Elise dress is the moment. In fuchsia pink, the asymmetric draping and diagonal thigh-split skirt deserves to be in the bouquet-catching spotlight.  Delivering up opulence in abundance, the Elise dress is bound to move you to the top of the best-dressed guest list, no competition.

What’s more, many of these styles are versatile enough to take you beyond the wedding festivities. Imagine donning that exquisite gown or chic jumpsuit at not just the ceremony but also ringing in the New Year with flair. It’s not just an outfit for the wedding; it’s a look that seamlessly transitions to a dazzling New Year’s Eve celebration. Because when it comes to style, why limit the spotlight to just one occasion?

Suit up

There’s something about a jumpsuit at a wedding that says understated cool, but this menswear-inspired Katie style featuring a satin smoking belt, is anything but understated. The skin-baring plunge neckline and exposed back ramps up the femininity, but it’s the 70s-style flared trousers that signals it was made for throwing shapes on the dance floor, all night long.

Champagne dreams

Metallics are an excellent way of making a statement without going overboard, and the Lilou hits all the right notes in a satin lamé fabric with a nostalgic 90s slip silhouette. This dress thrives in movement with the way the champagne shade catches the light, so don’t be surprised if you find yourself dancing all night long.

From dusk ‘till dawn

Finding a dress that will go the distance is the dream and the Jill strapless corset dress does not disappoint – perfect for dedicating hours on the wedding reception dance floor, but that can also be repurposed your next big party. An eye-catching feat of wispy feathers and sequins, this mini dress is a photo opportunity if there ever was one.

Risqué rewards

Wedding guest or Bond girl? You’ll find there is very little difference especially when the dress is this sensual. The black Ester gown features a deep plunging neckline collared with satin shawl detailing, reminiscent of the lapels of a tux. And the thigh high slit adds just a dose of danger.


For a scene-stealing gown that begs to be worn again, and again, the Hannah is as sumptuous in its colouring as it is in its sexy detailing. Crafted from crimson red satin, to say you’ll be turning heads with the sweetheart neckline and thigh-high side slit would be an understatement.

Gold rush

Something as subtle as texture can level up your wedding guest outfit, and with the Mari, delicate micro-pleats truly take it up a notch to goddess tier. The halterneck and flowing skirt create a traditional feminine silhouette, but the deep v-neck cut and low scoop-back add that unexpected sensuality to the look.

Red carpet-worthy

Sometimes you have to go all out and bring the drama, and the Oscars-worthy Natalie dress is a prime example of how glamour and demure can go hand in hand. Long-sleeve on one side and shoulder-baring on the other, the crystal and sequins beading snakes down to the waist for a show-stopping look.

Stripped-back elegance 

Very often less really is more, but that doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice on style when it comes to stripping back a little bit of the extravagance. With its slim-fitted bustier and stretch crepe silhouette, the black Esme column dress is the epitome of sleek and elegant.
