A huge trend for many couples planning a wedding this year is getting conceptual with their party style and hyper-specific with the aesthetic of their big day so they can fully realize their chosen theme.

What that means for you as a guest is that you’ll receive some very detailed information on what to wear for the big day. With your RSVP, you’ll be invited to check out the couple’s wedding website, where you’ll find custom mood boards with suggestions for wedding guest dressing. This will include everything from specific shades and patterns to styles that match a defined wedding theme.

Fun fact: Gothic romance, garden glamour and 1970s retro chic, are three of the biggest themes for 2024!

The idea of concept dressing for weddings is an exciting opportunity to shop for styles that may not be your norm, taking you out of your comfort zone and into a fresh fashion moment.

The great news is that this season at Laura, you’re spoiled for choice with occasion styles in a range of sizes that fit and flatter every figure. Not only are they fun and fabulous, but they’re also a dream to wear.

Let’s get you inspired and excited to shop for all the nuptials on your summer schedule with fresh wedding guest looks that we’ve broken down into four essential trends.

Jewel Tones

Glittering shades, like deep sapphire, ruby, emerald and aquamarine, make an impact and will create sparkling photo moments. These precious gem-inspired hues are classics, and these pieces will become go-to re-wears in your occasion wardrobe.

Fabulous Florals

Perfect for a summer garden party or brunch-style wedding, the best botanical-inspired prints are incredibly graphic and feature loads of purple, pink and peach tones. Go for something a little bolder with high-contrast black and white blooms.

Softs Shades

Pretty pastel and delicious sorbet shades are forever a summer favourite. Pale blue hues, lilac and ballet pink are trending colours that suit every skin tone and are a dream to accessorize with either warm gold or cool silver jewelry pieces.

Black Magic

Weddings with an ambiance of dark romance are one of the biggest trends of the year; that means black attire is not only acceptable but encouraged. Wedding guest style options we love include an asymmetric column dress, short and sweet LBDs, and a ruffle-sleeve jumpsuit.
