Are there ways to find sustainable wedding guest dresses? Would it be worth it to show off with a pair of statement shoes?

If you want to make sure you don’t look like anyone else at the wedding, then don’t go to the same stores where everyone else is already shopping. Instead, try to find stores that make sustainability a priority and allow you to invest in pieces you’ll truly love.

Finding sustainable wedding guest dresses doesn’t have to be difficult, especially if you try looking in the right places. Some stores and online retailers put sustainability into their mission statement, meaning stores like Reformation are fantastic if you want to find dresses that are specially made and long-lasting. While you might expect to pay a little more at these locations, this is because you’re paying for improved quality that’s expected to last far longer than other clothing options. This will also encourage you to only select items you’ll really love wearing for a long time.

Alternatively, you can also go shopping in thrift stores. If you want to make this a bit more of a socially involved event, you certainly can. This is because going thrifting with your friends allows you to conduct a more thorough search of the entire establishment, get opinions on one another’s outfits, and share excitement about the fun styles and good deals. Going to a thrift store is a great way to ensure you’re not going to wear something that can be easily found off the rack in the mall, making it look more one-of-a-kind and unique.

Look Into Getting Statement Shoes

While you think everyone might only be interested in your wedding guest dresses, it might be fun to look into letting another part of your outfit shine. Here, I’m talking about picking out shoes that are the centerpiece of your outfit at the wedding. Instead of picking the boring block heels in black or nude, it may not be a bad idea to find other footwear that takes on a bit more of the limelight.

While many people do not necessarily find this practical, it is possible for you to do this without ever wearing the shoes again. You can also find these shoes for pretty reasonable prices by going to online resellers or thrift stores with pretty good shoe selections. What might this look like for you?

Many people have been told to find shoes that work well with multiple outfits in their closets, and this often requires us to get footwear in neutral colors that are commonly thought to go with almost every color. And while this might be what your closet looks like, I’ll bet there are a few colors that are a bit more prominent than others. If you have a lot of purple in your wardrobe, try finding purple shoes you can wear with a lot of the items in your closet, for example.

Additionally, you can also find shoes that are in different shapes and have a non-traditional silhouette to them. Maybe this means, instead of finding block heels or stilettos, you find platform shoes, chunky boots, or other footwear that has fun accessories. What might these accessories be? Consider sequins, rhinestones, sparkles, spikes, tassels, feathers, velvet… almost anything you have the ability to imagine. Even if you get one of these in a neutral color, you’re sure to stand out whenever you wear them.

Focus on Your Makeup

If you don’t have the budget to get an all-new wardrobe for the wedding you’re attending, that’s okay! You can focus on the other aspects of your look instead. For example, you can choose to focus on your makeup look and have this be the eye-catching part of your outfit. Play with fun colors, add some sparkles, and go a little “extra” with your eyelashes. The point is not to be too traditional in your looks and really just allow a part of your look to stand out in the crowd.

Don’t Forget to Accessorize

If you’re really trying to stand out, try not to forget about your accessories. What do I mean by this? Many wedding guests forget to add accessories to their wedding guest outfits, so adding a couple of necklaces or bracelets to your look just might make you look extremely well put together. You can do the same by picking out earrings or rings that go well with another part of your outfit, as well. You might even look to Reformation to find sustainable and gorgeous shoes.


If you’re looking to up your wedding guest game, the key takeaway is to avoid looking too traditional. Instead of pulling a look off the mannequin or off the shelf, make an effort to find pieces that make you look unique and well put together. Don’t be afraid to look different from everyone else, especially if you feel confident and know you look good.
