Our Top 16 Brands for More Sustainable Wedding Guest Outfits

Our editors curate highly rated brands that are first assessed by our rigorous ratings system. Buying through our links may earn us a commission—supporting the work we do. Learn more.

 

Wedding season is upon us, so we’ve compiled a list of more sustainable wedding guest outfits from top-rated brands.

More sustainable wedding guest outfits inspiration

Weddings can be stressful—for the couple, their families, and yes, sometimes even their guests. For the latter, it’s often about deciding what to wear and the pressure to invest in a new outfit for the occasion. And while it might seem tricky to find something you can wear beyond the one-day celebration, we’re here to help. 

First, we recommend checking what’s already in your wardrobe—try restyling an outfit you’ve already worn, or pairing items that you’ve never worn together before to create a new outfit combo. If that doesn’t work then it’s time to explore second-hand options. Outfit rental is also an increasingly popular solution for event dressing. Some of our favourite platforms are Rent the Runway, Hurr, By Rotation, Vow to be Chic, Glam Corner, and MyWardrobe.

And if you need to buy something new, scroll on for our list of top-rated brands that’ll help you dress to the nines in more sustainable wedding guest attire—whether it’s a clutch bag, gown, suit, or accessory.
