What to Wear to a Country Wedding

Living in Australia, we are spoiled with breathtaking landscapes, ranging from pristine beaches to vast deserts and picturesque countryside. With so many beautiful locations, it's hard to go wrong when choosing a wedding destination. However, at Blue Bungalow, we have a soft spot for country weddings. If you've been fortunate enough to secure a coveted invite to a country wedding, you may be wondering what to wear.

Fear not, as we are here to help you navigate the world of country wedding guest outfits. 

What to Wear to a Country Wedding?  

The rustic atmosphere of a country wedding calls for a look that reflects the relaxed and laid-back setting, while still keeping in mind the more formal nature of the event. When selecting your outfit, it is essential to strike a balance between countryside casual and elevated elegance. Here are some of our top style tips to help you ace the dress code:  

1. Floaty Silhouette

A lovely, floaty silhouette adds a graceful and elegant element to your outfit, making it perfect for a wedding. Play around with the length of your dress to match the dress code. For a more casual wedding, a knee-length dress is appropriate. If it is a black-tie event, a maxi dress with a flowing skirt is the perfect option. 

2. Floral Prints

Incorporating floral prints into your ensemble is a wonderful way to pay homage to the natural surroundings and rustic ambiance. Opt for a floral print with a light-colored base for a daytime event. If the wedding is in the evening, you can experiment with darker florals to create a tailored yet playful look. 

3. Fabric, Fabric, Fabric!

If you're attending a wedding in an indoor setting in winter or during a blindingly hot summer day, it's important to choose breathable fabrics that keep you cool and comfortable throughout the day. Consider opting for lightweight natural fibers such as cotton or linen, as they provide a breezy and comfortable feel. At BB, we also appreciate the timeless appeal of a silk dress. Wearing silk to a wedding is a classic choice that never goes out of style. 

What Should a Guest Wear to an Outdoor Country Wedding? 

Outdoor weddings bring the (not so) fun element of dressing for the weather. It's crucial to check the weather report before planning your outfit. Depending on the season, an outdoor country wedding can range from sweltering heat to a seriously chilly evening. By staying informed about the weather conditions, you can ensure that your outfit is suitable and comfortable for the occasion. 

1. Lovely Layers

For an outdoor wedding consider bringing along a shrug, shawl, or jacket for easy and elegant layering. If it’s extra cold, why not layer a scarf for additional warmth and dimension! 

2. Sun Safety

Living in Australia we all know the dangers of a nasty sunburn. Protect your skin and add some flair to your outfit with a wide brim hat and a pair of sophisticated sunglasses.

3. Comfortable Footware

While the countryside is beautiful there may be some uneven terrain to be mindful of. Opt for a pair of block heels, wedges or even a dressy sandal to ensure you can navigate the outdoors with ease. An added benefit is the comfier the shoe, the longer you can dance!

What to Wear to a Fancy Country Wedding?  

While some country weddings have a relaxed and casual atmosphere, others lean towards a more sophisticated and formal setting. If you're attending a fancy country wedding, our top tip is to use your accessories to elevate your ensemble. Choosing the right accessories can take your look from ordinary to extraordinary.

For a fancy country wedding, we suggest experimenting with silver, gold, or pearl jewellery for a sleek and polished appearance. During wedding season, it may feel like you're constantly searching for the perfect guest outfits. However, by simply playing around with accessories, you can effortlessly transform your outfit from rustic to glamorous in seconds.
