As a plus size woman, the struggle is always finding a wedding guest dress that is exciting to wear (while being respectful to the bride, of course) that actually comes in my size. Majority of the time if I filter “special occasion” under the dress category of my favorite department store all that pops up are boring upon boring options. If I’m getting dressed up I want to feel fabulous! Yes, there is something to be said about a classic look, but at least give me the option to jazz it up!

In the photo above I’m wearing a smocked dot print dress from this summer. Unfortunately it’s sold out at, but I was able to find a similar dress. I think this is perfect for casual or dressy-casual occasions. I’m wearing it with a classic denim jacket, but you could also pair it back to a dressier suede option or even a shawl.

Below are some wedding guest dress ideas for sizes L-4X that work for a range of needs, from casual to formal. If you’re more into solids and classic cuts, there’s something for you, but if you’re looking for something a little more fun for the occasion I think you’ll be happy, too! Wedding dress codes can be tricky, so if you’re stumped on what category you should be looking at refer to this helpful guide from The Knot.
