We think you can wear pretty much any dress to a wedding (except white, of course!), but we love a maxi dress. It’s a timeless design, and there are so many styles and ways to wear it that we wouldn’t blame you for not knowing how to wear a maxi dress to a wedding. But don’t worry, put together this guide to help you style your maxi dress stress-free.
It’s in the details
When picking out the perfect maxi dress for a wedding, make sure you always consider the fabric and silhouette of the dress. We’re going maxi, so look for floaty fabrics like chiffon that always look elegant. When it comes to shape, you can’t go wrong with a wrap dress. It’s a wedding classic, and this flattering style is perfect for twirling on the dance floor.
Try something different
At DL, we let our dresses do the talking with gorg’ hand-drawn prints and bold colours, so we think that adding a little something extra to your maxi wedding guest dress is always a good idea. Try a print clash to make a statement with your maxi, or go monochrome with a bright colour for a standout look.
If you’re wondering how to dress up a maxi dress for a wedding, you’ve come to the right place. Depending on the style of maxi you’re going for, you’ll want to try different accessories. If you’ve got a deep v-neckline, a long necklace is the perfect choice to flatter the silhouette. But if your dress has a high neckline and you’re wearing your hair up, then you’ve got to try on some statement earrings to add wow factor and dress up your look.

When it comes to maxi dresses at casual weddings, you might feel like you’re overdressed, but really, maxis look good at any wedding. To keep things on the casual side, choose dresses that feature playful prints, like ditsy florals, and unique details, like a cut-out, to ace the dress code every time.
How To Dress Up A Maxi Dress for A Formal Wedding?
One of the easiest ways to dress up a maxi dress for formal ceremonies is by choosing a classic colour, like navy, and adding bold gold jewellery like statement earrings and rings to bring your look to the next level. Pair with stiletto heels to keep your dress off the ground ad add an extra bit of sass.
What To Wear Over A Maxi Dress To A Wedding?
Knowing what to wear over a maxi dress can be tough, as the full-length style usually means you’re well covered if the weather turns, but if you’re worried about needing something over your maxi, you’ll be happy to hear it’s pretty simple. Just grab a pashmina or wrap to throw around your shoulders if needed, and if you’ve been invited to a winter wedding, then a longline duster coat is perfect as it matches the length of your dress.
