You just received the wedding invite of the season, and you are over the moon! A perfect opportunity to show off your beautiful curves in a glamorous dress. But wait, you just looked at your wardrobe, and it’s a mess! No style is making sense, and you are whacking your brain for ideas but nothing.
So, stop right there and take a breather because we are here to solve your wedding dress problems. As an attractive plus-size lady, you must be sensitive about choosing the dress which does your curves justice.
Unfortunately, sometimes by following the dress code, we pick a dress that looks like a fashion disaster. To avoid looking like a 90s grandma in a hot wedding, grab some snacks, sit down, and take pointers from the following fantastic wedding guest dress ideas to blow away everyone.
Off-the-shoulder faux wrap dress:
Let’s kick off the list with a bit of city chic, and for that, we’ve got a gorgeous off-the-shoulder faux wrap dress, preferably in emerald. Wrap dresses are a staple for curvy women because it hides all the extra bulge (if you’ve got any) in all the right places.
A wrap dress with large floral prints would perfectly complement your curves and would look utterly breathtaking in the wedding scene. We recommend you pair the dress with strappy heels or fancy flats, dangly earrings, and a simple hairdo.
Sequin long-sleeve maxi dress:
We know that when Ken said “Sequins are tacky” in Toy Story 3, we know he didn’t mean it. Sequins are never out of style; instead, they look dazzling. Many plus sized dresses will do the trick on a wedding, but nothing beats the glamour and the shimmer of a sequin full-length maxi dress.
Understandably, as a curvy lady, you must feel conscious about wearing sequin as it will hang on the curves, but that’s more the reason to wear it.
You will look ridiculously gorgeous in a full-length silver sequin dress that is paired with sultry heels, bold red lips, nude eyes, and minimal jewelry-like studs.
Floral maxi bohemian split dress:
Floral dresses are really in this season, and there is no reason you shouldn’t rock one at a wedding. We recommend a bohemian floral maxi dress with a dramatic split for a wedding without a strict dress code.
A fit and flare floral maxi with ruffles, cold shoulder, a knot on the stomach area, and spaghetti straps will give off ultimate chic yet fancy vibes for a summertime wedding.
Not only during summers, but you can rock this dress on a beach wedding as well if you pair it with some wedges, long earrings, and a messy hairstyle.
Half-sleeve lace knee-length cocktail dress:
Not feeling a long dress for a casual wedding dress code? Then shake your wardrobe and pick out a lovely lacey cocktail dress. A plunging V-neck, half-sleeve knee-length cocktail dress will turn heads at the wedding.
We recommend a fit and flare, high waist dress with a faux-wrap bold deep neck paired with high heels, diamond studs, and a statement delicate necklace. You can add personal touches and go for a dramatic bow in the middle or go sleeveless as well.
Cape midi dress:
Why don’t you skip the old bare shoulder cocktail dress looks and go for something that makes a fashion statement? Yes, we are talking about cape dresses! Providing arm and shoulder coverage in the chicest way possible, a cape midi dress in a bold color is the perfect dress for a fall or winter wedding.
We have more than one recommendation for cape dresses, among which a slightly casual look with fold shoulder cutting is our favorite. A billowy cape dress in navy blue or hot pink paired with open-toe ankle strap heels will put the spotlight on you.
You can even go for a subtly sexy look with a deep V-neck wrap cape mini dress that will look elegant with a formal hairdo, heels, and statement jewelry.
Who knew that a classic little black dress with drastic twists would be your go-to dress for a black-tie wedding? Yes, we are talking about a traditional Nia dress either in black or nude hues featuring bra-friendly straps and V-neck along with asymmetric hemline.
We are fans of Nia dresses in black with sultry side slits, but you can also go for something classy. You can switch your LBD with floral prints featuring a waist tie, topstitched pleats on a plunging V-neckline, and elbow-length sleeves.
With a black Nia dress, complete the look with ankle strap heels and metallic jewelry, while you can go with a matching necklace and earrings for the floral dress.
Pleated midi dress:
Want to go for a low-key sexy yet elegant look for a wedding? A pleated midi dress is a perfect pick. Whether it’s a pleated skirt or a dress, this semi-formal outfit looks classy, refreshing, and stylish, no matter the setting.
For a wedding, especially a spring wedding, we recommend the curvy ladies to go for a mesmerizing blush hue with ruffled sleeves paired with nude pumps. Another go-to wedding look for this type of dress would be to choose a burgundy, high neck pleated dress with unique sleeves.
You can pair it with light youthful-colored accessories like light blue pumps, a dome pouch, or a clutch.
Bow-tie maxi dress:
Plus size ladies tend to go for a ‘safer’ choice, but this wedding season is all about putting yourself out there. Why go for a classic goody dress when you can pick a joyful, bright-hued bow-tie maxi dress?
Make a style statement by going for a dramatic bow with a strapless top and a ruffled hem. If you are attending a very low-key wedding affair, then you can opt for a modest bow-tie mid-length dress with a pleated skirt, short sleeves, and side pockets.
Wedding seasons are the best. You get to show off your glam and dresses left hanging at the back of your closet. As a curvy lady, you must struggle to choose the perfect dress that can steal the spotlight and complement your curves.
We are here to tell you that you would look gorgeous in every dress. Still, if you need inspiration, you can take help from our top picks and steal the spotlight!
