Alternative Wedding Guest Looks With Amy Sequins

by Amy Sequins

Amy Sequins is a Manchester-based content creator, best known for sharing her creative outfits and individual style. We challenged Amy to create four alternative wedding guest looks to give you inspiration for this wedding season.

Let's talk about wedding guest outfits that aren't dresses.

If you're anything like me and you love getting dressed up for a wedding, but don't want to stick to the tried and tested route of dresses, then here are a few alternative wedding guest looks I put together with the help of Wolf and Badger. From a trouser suit to two-piece sets and silk skirts, these alternative looks will see me through the wedding season and beyond! 

Look 1:

Think trouser suit, but not your typical run-of-the-mill trouser suit. This incredible two-piece set from Lalipop Design screamed 'alternative wedding guest' to me. It's smart enough for a day ceremony but also takes you well into the evening; with a more dressed down top underneath, you're good to go on any dance floor. Picking out the black detailing but not wanting to take away from the print of the set, I opted for textured black accessories in the form of a crochet mesh block heel sandal by Rag&Co and a black Borg handbag from Brush By MG. 

Look 2:

We all dream of a bit of sun on the wedding day, but for toastier days, you’ll need something just as breathable as a dress. This lightweight white blazer from Vikiglow is the perfect starting point for a light and airy wedding guest look, buttoned at just the right point to make it wearable on its own. I’m a lover of patterns (as we probably all know!) so to take the outfit up a notch I paired the sleek simple blazer with a stand-out pair of flares in a lightweight canvas by Zena Presley. Again, keeping the outfit cohesive but still striking, I decided that these beautiful colour block sandals by Mafalda in the same colour way as the rest of the outfit were perfect. From a beach house ceremony to an Italian courtyard wedding, this outfit has got you (lightly) covered. 

Look 3:

As a huge lover of Western boots, this look started with the shoes (if you read my Festive Dressing article you will know!). Subtly nodding to the western boot trend this season, these incredible boots by Stivali New York in a wedding-friendly colour palette are a wedding must! Wanting the boots to be on display but not make the look too casual, I opted for this flowy silk maxi skirt by Jessica Russell Flint, which allows the boots to just peek out from underneath the explosion of colour and print. Taking the white of the boots and the Western theme of the outfit, I felt a fringed clutch bag by Billy Bag London with a statement white top by Nocturne made for an elevated wedding guest outfit. 

Look 4:

Leaning back into two-piece sets, I was on the hunt for something that really is the definition of alternative wedding guest looks, and this statement black and white gingham suit set by Aggi hit the mark. Featuring an oversized shoulder-padded blazer and matching high-waisted flares, this suit can be worn in a multitude of ways and not just for a wedding! Heeled cream loafers with a gold horse bit by Saint G paired with the suit set really made for a classy yet bold look. To top it all off, I added a pop of colour in the form of a bright green angular handbag by Brush by MG. This look is perfect for a stylish, confetti-throwing wedding guest.
