Rompers aren’t what one would usually think of as wedding guest attire, but you can definitely wear a romper to a garden wedding if you opt for a classy romper.
Look for wedding guest rompers with cute patterns and pair them with block heels or espadrilles for an easy-breezy ensemble.

Pair your wrap dress with some strappy sandals for a classy and comfy look.

Garden weddings can be formal or casual, and floral midi dresses can be dressed up or dressed down! A floral midi dress can be worn again and again to cocktail parties, beach weddings, vacations, and more!
This floral midi dress (shown above) is perfect for both a garden wedding and a hot summer casual wedding! Additionally, you can wear this dress to a formal wedding by dressing it up with black heels and fancy jewelry.

Alternatively, you may want to wear a vegan leather jacket. Lulus has TONS of vegan leather jackets in light cream and light grey that are perfect for wearing to an outdoor or a garden wedding.
9. Mini Dress with Puff Sleeves
Mini dresses are perfect for hot summer days, and a mini dress with sleeves is perfect for wearing to a garden wedding! Look for a mini dress with a pattern and/or thicker material (like jacquard fabric) to ensure it looks classy and dressy.
For this garden wedding guest outfit, wear closed-toe heels or wedges and a cute clutch!
10. Cute Cardigans
If you aren’t a big fan of blazers, then you may want to bring a cute cardigan or a lightweight shawl with you to a garden wedding. You never know if it will be cold outside!
11. Wedge Sandals
Most garden weddings are in…you guessed it, a garden! Because you’ll likely be walking on grass, make sure to wear wedge sandals instead of heels to a garden wedding.
12. A Floral Cutout Dress
Cutout dresses can be super sexy and flirty, and they can also be dressy and classy! If you find a midi length cutout dress that is in a feminine pattern and/or rich material, it could be perfect for wearing to a garden wedding!
