Wedding season might traditionally fall in the summer months, however after years of rescheduled nuptials and diaries filling for next year, wedding guest outfit planning is now pretty much a year-round activity. If you’re on the hunt for some amazing wedding-ready looks, let us narrow things down a little bit for you by sharing the brands that always deliver when it comes to beautiful, but comfortable, occasionwear.

Our list includes some labels which you’re likely to spot at any British wedding, such as Rixo and Self Portrait. But we’ve also added some lesser-known names into the mix if you’re hoping to discover something new. This includes Own Studio, which despite technically catering to brides and bridesmaids, creates beautiful silk separates in plenty of elegant colours that you can also wear as a guest. Franks and Omnes are two other small London labels we love with a focus on sustainable practices. 

We’ve found dresses in rusts, navy and emerald greens which are perfect for any autumn weddings, while we’ve kept summery dress options in the mix too for who are really thinking ahead.Let us help you find the perfect wedding outfit, via the 7 brands we love below.

Rixo likely needs no introduction to our readers, as it has become the unofficial outfitter of British weddings since launching in 2015. Rixo’s printed midi dresses are quite simply unrivalled.

Own Studio technically only caters to brides and bridesmaids, with a sleek and modern aesthetic. However we love how the silk separates can also be worn as a wedding guest or to any elegant evening event.

Franks dresses are handmade and made-to-order, and this small London label is committed to reducing waste and slowing down the fashion cycle. The designs are incredibly beautiful too.

Self Portrait is another label which makes special design-led pieces more accessible, with its contemporary price point. It has expanded beyond the lace dresses which made the brand famous, and has an option for every type of wedding dress code.

Australian label Aje creates ‘wow’ dresses, however uses interesting colours and cut-out details to give an edge to pretty princess dresses. This is a brand that’s only going to get bigger and bigger.

6. Omnes

Omnes is another London-based label which is committed to sustainable practices, and is known for its colourful satin slip and wrap dresses.

Rotate Birger Christensen is the brand to go for if you’re going to a ‘party’ wedding where you want to bring a touch of ‘80s glamour to the proceedings. Think sequins, big shoulders and all things shiny.
