Lockdown may still be in place, especially if you are based in Greater Manchester as I am but if you do have any formal events, weddings or parties to attend in the next few weeks or months, then you will be sure to find a dress (or two) to dazzle from Goddiva. As well as wedding dresses, they also offer a wide range of bridal, eveningand bridesmaid dresses. Additionally, you'll find a huge selection of maxi, midi, cocktail, evening, summer, work and casual dresses, in a range of prices, colours and styles.  

Maxi Dresses 
Unless the bride has requested a specific dress code, style or colour scheme, there aren't too many rules when it comes to wedding guest outfits. Make sure your dress isn't white and you should be fine! I think maxi dresses or longer evening dresses are the perfect mix of formal and sophisticated but also comfortable, light (ideal for a summer wedding or a celebration abroad) and elegant. I wore a maxi fitted dress as a bridesmaid a couple of years ago and not only was it comfortable to wear all day but it instantly looked elegant and fitting for the occasion. There are a few of my favourite maxi dresses from Goddiva above which I think would make gorgeous wedding guest or evening dresses

As well as maxi dresses, I think that anything with a little sparkle in the form of sequins makes any outfit or dress look wedding ready! Although I think there is such a thing as too much sparkle so perhaps keep the sequins to a minimum (the dress above as a great example of well placed and simple sparkle) or make sure they are specific to one area of the dress such as the bodice. Goddiva has a wonderful array of sequinned and sparkly dresses, from full on 1920's flapper-style fringe dresses to elegant diffused sequinned maxi dresses. 

Cocktail Dresses
Lastly, if you are unsure of what to wear to the ceremony or the evening party, a simple but elegant cocktail or party dress might be the answer. Ideal for warmer climates or a hot English summers day, a cocktail dress can be sequinned and glamorous, floaty and sophisticated or it can be figure hugging, there are so many opinions to choose from. It is also the style of dress that can be worn to multiple occasions!

What do you think of the Goddiva dresses I've chosen? Do you have any wedding guest advice or wardrobe recommendations?
