If you want to wear a jumpsuit as a wedding guest, you’re in luck! I love the look of jumpsuits for wedding guests as an alternative to a dress. If you don’t want to wear a dress, but you want to dress up for a wedding, a one-piece jumsuit is a great attire option.

Now that you have some ideas of what styles to wear, let’s tackle a few frequently asked questions about this fashion choice. Is a jumpsuit suitable to wear as a wedding guest, and if so, are there any styles to avoid?
Let’s discuss it.
Can you wear a jumpsuit as a wedding guest?
Are jumpsuits appropriate to wear to a wedding?
Yes! Of course. I know the answer is pretty obvious because, well, why would we show you so many beautiful wedding guest jumpsuits if it weren’t an option?
Dress codes of all kind — yes, including cocktail and semi-formal — are an appropriate guest attire choice for any wedding, regardless of season.
In regards to formality, keep in mind a few rules listed below.
What jumpsuits should wedding guests avoid?
There are just a few types of jumpsuits you should avoid if you are a wedding guest. None of them are included on this list; however, if shopping for a jumpsuit elsewhere, keep these tips in mind.
Don’t wear a jumpsuit that is white, ivory, or champagne in color.
As per the normal dress code rules, the same apply to a jumpsuit as a wedding guest dress. Don’t wear a color the bride would wear so you avoid upstaging her.
In addition, avoid wearing a bright color red: it tends to draw attention in real life and in photos, which takes away from the spotlight of the bride.
You might also refrain from anything too revealing, two-piece jumpsuits that show a lot of skin, and fabrics that are more suited towards summer beach weddings (when you’re attending an indoor fall reception). When in doubt, shop styles shown in the list above, as they are all perfectly appropriate for wedding guest attire.
What kind of shoes to wear with a jumpsuit to a wedding
Any type of dress shoes for wedding guests will do! A pair of low heels, stacked heels, or block heels tend to look best with a jumpsuit. However, you should wear something that is dressy yet comfortable, so you’re not walking around uncomfortably all night.
Lulus offers many of the shoes you see in the examples above; you can shop their affordable collection of dress shoes here.
What are the best jumpsuits for wedding guests?
Last but not least, the top jumpsuits for wedding guests are anything on the list above! My favorite is probably #7, followed by #12. I do adore them all. The trend is here to stay for awhile, so if you’re also thinking ahead to 2023 wedding season, I have no doubt these jumpsuits will serve you well right into the next year. :)
I hope it helps!
Which one will you be rocking this year?
