Wedding guest outfit for the registry office

The general rule for weddings is: do not appear more elegant or eye-catching than the bride and groom. Nevertheless, you should dress smartly to celebrate this big day and feel good at the same time. There are different dress codes for the wedding ceremony in the registry office than for weddings in the church or a free wedding ceremony. During the day in the registry office you don't have to put on the cocktail dress, because the dress code here is more informal and casual. As a woman, you drive well with knee-length dresses such as this case dress from Galeria.

Chic costumes, a summer skirt with blazer, a nice trouser suit or an elegant jumpsuit are also suitable for the celebration in the registry office.

Wedding guest dresses for the church wedding

At every wedding, the following applies: the clothes of the guests should suit the occasion. This means that the clothes must fit into the overall concept of the celebration or be selected according to certain specifications of the bride and groom. A dirndl is an ideal wedding guest dress - especially when the bride and groom are celebrating a Bavarian or Austrian wedding. The selection of festive dirndl dresses is huge: from the vintage dirndl of the brand "Berwin und Wolff" in the traditional cut with summery fabrics to traditional costume fashion with lovely details such as the traditional dress by "MarJo Trachten".

Modern dresses and jumpsuits for the wedding guest

The location of the celebration determines which outfit suits the wedding. At a garden wedding, the choice of clothes can be more casual and playful than at a party in a pompous hall. There is a large selection of modern clothes for every occasion, which can also be worn on other occasions. Flowing maxi dresses are ideal for outdoor weddings. The clothes of the brand "Needle & Thread" convince with unusual cuts and light fabrics - often decorated with lace and beautiful embroidery.
