Best REVOLVE Wedding Guest Dresses for a Black-Tie Wedding
Black tie weddings mean that women should be wearing full-length gowns in luxe materials like satin or brocade—clothing truly fit for a special occasion. For men, the dress code indicates that they should be wearing a tuxedo, not a suit.
It’s the most formal of common wedding dress codes, save for the white tie dress code which is typically only reserved for royal weddings or otherwise prestigious weddings between notable figures.
I’ve been fawning over this metallic gown for months now! The gold dress is perfect for a glamorous black tie wedding, with a flattering corset-style top and high slit giving the micro-pleated skirt better movement.
Gold is a great color option year-round. It can easily be worn to a summer wedding with some fun accessories and heeled sandals, or can be dressed up for a winter wedding with a wrap—think about how amazing this gown would be for a New Year’s Eve wedding!
Maria Lucia Hohan is known for her dramatic gowns that feature stunning draping, and this one is no exception. The green and black number is far more unique than a typical wedding guest dress, but not so attention-grabbing as to take focus away from the bride).
Marica Lucia Hohan’s Regina Midi Dress is made with a 100% silk exterior. Definitely a luxury option if you’re searching for REVOLVE wedding guest dresses.
V. Chapman has become synonymous with ultra-feminine spring and summer wedding guest dresses. The brand typically features romantic details like delicate florals, brocade, ruffles, and lace, and the Ophilia Gown is no exception.
This long lace gown is made of a boned, bustier-style bodice, with a high slit, sheer lace skirt lined with a short mini skirt underneath. To ensure the dress fits perfectly, the bodice has adjustable lacing in the back.
Sau Lee’s brand has exploded in popularity lately. I love that the label always balances Chinese inspiration with current trends in a way that makes fashion feel well, fun.
The Hong Kong-based brand’s Michelle Gown is a showstopper for black-tie weddings. The terracotta color is flattering on a wide range of skin tones, while the satin fabric makes the gown feel oh-so-elegant.
This is definitely a timeless piece that could be worn to a wide range of events like a black tie gala or charity event well past wedding season and for years to come.
Does a black-tie wedding dress code feel daunting to you? Maybe you want one gown that you’ll be able to wear to any black tie invite you receive? I’ve got you.
The Alice + Olivia Montana Maxi Gown is simple, straightforward, and sophisticated. You’ll be able to wear it for years thanks to the chic column silhouette.
This gown has phenomenal reviews, users cite that it’s comfortable with multiple reviews calling out the dress as “stunning.”
The dress features a tie-back design that allows the wearer to adjust the dress’ fit exactly to their body.
By using a rich, vibrant green satin, the Alice + Olivia Montana Maxi Gown becomes an easy pick for just about any black tie wedding you may need to attend. This shade of green isn’t a typical wedding color, so you likely won’t run the risk of looking like part of the bridal party and is suitable for year-round use.
Black tie dress codes can often mean “bring the drama,” and this gown does exactly that. The sculptural silhouette has a couture feel, but don’t be fooled—this gown is surprisingly affordable.
Norma Kamali’s brand has become synonymous with comfortable, flattering pieces that don’t lack in elegance, and still feel interesting. Styles are typically offered at an attainable price. The Norma Kamali Strapless Wing Fishtail Gown is no exception, made using a stretchy, comfortable fabric despite its strong silhouette.
Reviewers laud the gown’s fit as being outstanding, making the dress a showstopper. Plus, think of all the endless accessory options for this gown.
This pink and red ombre gown feels ethereal and delicate. The dress keeps it simple, using a classic ballgown silhouette to highlight the ombre print.
The Sau Lee Teigan Gown would be perfect for an outdoor spring or summer wedding, but may not be the best choice if the bride chooses to wear blush instead of traditional white.
I’ve been a longtime Amanda Uprichard fan, partially for the brand’s bold colors and trend-forward silk pieces. This gown is neither of those things but maintains the brand’s minimalist approach to design.
If you’re looking for modern REVOLVE wedding guest dresses, this gown is a good option for you. While the dress is a classic shape, the choker halter neck and daring slit give it some edge without being overly sexy or revealing for a black tie wedding.

REVOLVE Wedding Guest Dresses for Black-Tie Optional or Formal Weddings
Black-tie optional sometimes referred to as simply, formal, can be a confusing dress code to decipher. In all honesty, the dress code applies more to men than it does to women.
Black-tie optional weddings mean that wearing a tuxedo is encouraged, but not necessary. Men can get away with a polished suit instead.
Women may interpret this dress code to mean that the wedding is not quite as formal as black-tie only indicates. This might mean wearing a slightly shorter dress or going for a bolder color than you would for a black-tie only wedding. A floor-length column dress is a safe option here, as it’s not as dressed up as wearing a ballgown, but is still very formal.
The important takeaway is that dressing to a black-tie dress code is acceptable for black-tie optional weddings. You won’t be faulted for showing up in a full-length gown or tuxedo.
This metallic plisse gown is available in tons of color options and makes a statement. The tiered gown features shoulder pads and a plunging neckline but keeps the skirt more conservative, making it appropriate for a black tie optional dress code. Personally, I like that this gown doesn’t feel quite as demure as typical wedding guest dresses.
The Sabina Musayev Skylar Dress would be a really fun option if the marrying couple is having a 1970s-themed wedding, or is particularly into the disco decade.
I’ll say it: sky blue is the universally flattering color. This dress is no exception. Designed with both a plunging neckline and a low back, I can’t help but feel like the Bec & Bridge Lorelai V Maxi Dress would be perfect for a garden wedding in the summer.
This ankle-length gown is a good balance of formal and casual for those looking to leverage the freedom to wear a shorter dress that a black tie-optional dress code provides.
The L’Idee Gala Gown is daring (you might need tape to feel comfortable dancing the night away), but the conservative, accordion-pleated skirt still makes it feel wedding-appropriate.
The bold colors of the dress allow it to be worn for a fall wedding.
I can’t look at this gown without immediately wanting to sing “Barbie Girl.”
Margot Robbie’s red carpet style for the Barbie movie has taught us that Barbiecore is back in a big way this season, and I for one, am absolutely not mad about it (my wardrobe has been WAITING for this one).
If you want to channel your inner Barbie as a wedding guest, the Nookie Romance Gown is the perfect option. The sculpting gown features minimal detail, allowing the bright Barbie pink color to have its moment.
“Frost yourself” are the first words that come to mind when looking at this dress.
Channel your inner Andie Anderson à la How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days with this pastel yellow gown, complete with rhinestone detail straps.
Who knows, maybe you’ll even find your Matthew McConaughey.
There’s something about this sophisticated black gown that reminds me of vintage couture from Hollywood’s Golden Age. Obviously, that means I can’t help but obsess over it.
The Sau Lee Noah Gown’s large ruffle detail at the bust helps give the dress that hourglass effect. I’ve marked the dress as being black tie-optional appropriate as reviews flag that the gown’s material is more casual than anticipated.
This full-length gown is effortlessly stylish, featuring clean lines and very simple detail at the neckline.
The gown is available in black for those that want to stick to the basics, but the sky blue color option is a knockout that shouldn’t be overlooked.
This gown is made of Ponte jersey fabric, which aids fit and sculpts your figure.

Top REVOLVE Wedding Guest Dresses for a Cocktail Dress Code
Cocktail is by far one of the most common wedding guest dress codes. I love that this dress code is descriptive so guests aren’t stressing over what it entails—go for a suit, cocktail dress, or elevated jumpsuit.
REVOLVE has hundreds of cocktail dresses (literally), so you’ll definitely be able to find something you love, even if you’re shopping last minute. The best cocktail REVOLVE wedding guest dresses are below.
Elliatt has become THE wedding guest dress brand for me. The brand constantly turns out elegant cocktail dresses that feel interesting without being too trendy or attention-grabbing, offering most of its satin styles in a wide array of flattering colors.
The Cassini Dress is the wedding guest dress to end all wedding guest dresses. It’s become a REVOLVE bestseller and an internet darling for the hammered satin and drapey shape that feels formal without feeling too uptight.
This dress is available in several colors. If you see one you like, snatch it up! Outside of the core blue, white, and black shades, Cassini Dress colors tend to sell out quickly and disappear for good when gone.
I recently ordered this dress myself in blue for a September wedding—the color is perfect for transitioning seasons. I’m sure I’ll be wearing this dress a lot to weddings, dinners, and date nights.
There’s a million different events I’d wear this breathtaking silk midi dress to. Weddings, date nights, birthday parties, you name it.
Mirror Palais’s feminine designs have been taking the internet by storm, and the Ballet Dress might just be my favorite (though as a former ballet dancer, maybe I’m biased). The 100% silk charmeuse looks so luxe, accented by delicate lace at the top of the cups.
It’s worth noting that red dresses can sometimes be looked down on at weddings as in certain cultures, they can indicate that you’ve slept with the groom (trust me, I’m shocked too). You may want to double-check that the bride and groom don’t follow this tradition before wearing it.
The Diana Gown is one of Norma Kamali’s most instantly recognizable designs.
Seen on style icons like Sarah Jessica Parker, the Diana Dress uses innovative ruching to create a showstopping look without needing any flashy embellishment or detail at all.
The gown is known to be comfortable as it’s made of a stretchy knit. It comes in a whole rainbow of colors, but I’ve fallen in love with the Celadon option, a sage green.
Note that this dress does have a built-in bodysuit to maintain the dress’ structure, which has been known to annoy some wearers as you’ll need to take the whole dress off when using the bathroom.
If you’re not loving the long length of this dress, you’re in luck. Norma Kamali’s Diana collection also includes Diana mini dresses, tops, and even an option with a draped, cape-like sleeve.
The Lily Dress is a V. Chapman bestseller and a popular choice for REVOLVE wedding guest dresses. It’s easy to see why—the dress’s smocked panels, ruffle detail, and tie straps practically scream romance.
This dress is available in tons of colors, and as a core V. Chapman style is constantly being updated with new colors and prints for each season. I’ve always been partial to the dress’ dusty pink shade, but the light blue would be lovely at an outdoor spring wedding also.
Because the entirety of this dress is smocked, it’s really forgiving, offering so much stretch to the point that some choose to size down.
A.L.C.’s Delfina Dress is everywhere right now, and I’ve definitely been among the crowd lusting over it.
The brand cleverly uses pleats to create a flattering sunburst effect that feels unique and fresh. The midi dress is available in tons of colors and is frequently offered in new ones.
Reviewers praise the dress’ fit and surprising comfort. You won’t need to worry about feeling restricted or fussy with your dress during hours of wedding festivities in this one.
The Camo Dress is among Elliatt’s more trend-forward styles. The drapey cowl neck halter bodice exudes easy sophistication, while the fitted, asymmetrical mini skirt keeps the dress contemporary and gives it a little edge.
Imagine, you’re seated at a garden wedding ceremony filled with stunning florals with a picturesque dress to match.
The dress in that vision is the V. Chapman Mia Dress, a demure, all-lace midi dress with a bustier bodice and three floaty tiers of skirt.
The Misha X REVOLVE Ida Dress doesn’t play—this no-fuss cocktail dress uses just a few clean radial pleats to create a clean look.
Reviewers can’t stop glowing about this dress, praising the thick, sculpting material, and figure-complimenting fit.
When ELLIATT isn’t creating cult-favorite satin dresses, the brand drills into cocktail dresses made of heavy lace, like the Charter Dress.
This mauve lace cocktail dress can be worn with or without straps and would be perfect for a spring wedding at any time of day.

Semi-Formal REVOLVE Wedding Guest Dresses
Semi-formal wedding dress codes are vague, confusing, and frankly, usually result in a crowd of wedding guest attendees wearing a mixed bag of clothing. No one ever quite seems to feel like they’re attending the same event.
In case you can’t tell, I’m anti-semi-formal dress code for a wedding. If you are invited to a wedding calling for semi-formal attire, don’t fret.
I’d compare semi-formal as being to a cocktail dress code what black tie-optional is to a black tie-only dress code. Some may go for cocktail attire, while others may loosen it up, wearing bolder colors, prints, shorter hemlines, or styles that feel more fun or daring.
You can dress down a little compared to a cocktail dress code, but semi-formal definitely should still be polished, even if it’s more casual.
Made in a scrumptious pea green linen, the pleated cups and waist belt of the Nicholas Drenica Drop Waist Corset Midi Dress help give the dress its timeless feel.
I love the pretty color and gathered skirt of this dress. The dress’ linen textile is more casual than the satin, crepe, or heavy Ponte of cocktail dresses, making the dress a great pick for a semi-formal wedding dress code.
Lace usually makes dresses feel more formal, but the delicate mesh lace of the Bardot Adoni Mesh Midi Dress walks the line of being relaxed but still put-together.
Going for a softer mesh lace like the one used in this dress is a good option for semi-formal wedding dress codes as it gives the dress subtle detail that helps keep the look feeling upscale, but isn’t as formal as intricate chantilly lace or heavier guipure lace.
This dress could take you everywhere from a wedding to the office, seriously. The loose draping provides coverage for common areas of insecurity, while the silk knit allows for comfort and hugs in all the right places.
This bright pink mini dress exudes playfulness. The large flutter sleeves and voluminous skirt allow the tiny number to feel polished and upscale, while the tie back, plunging neckline, and short skirt make the dress feel a little more casual than cocktail attire.

Casual REVOLVE Wedding Guest Dresses
Casual wedding dress codes aren’t a free pass to show up in jeans and a t-shirt. Consider casual attire requests to really mean upscale casual. A simple sundress in warmer months, or a sweater dress in cooler months, are usually safe bets.
The textured fabric and flowy, elasticized shape of this Free People maxi give it just the right balance of cleaned up and casual to make it a solid option for a casual wedding guest dress.
Giving this dress extra interest, large angel sleeves create a fluttering effect.
Ulla Johnson has become a fashion girl favorite in recent years for the label’s bold bohemian prints and fabulously feminine details.
The brand’s Simona Dress feels just right for a casual wedding. Made of a cotton voile, the lightweight dress’ casual approach is dressed up by zigzagging ruffles and a ruched bodice.
The A.L.C. Olympia Dress’ crisp poplin and angular handkerchief hem make it feel just as appropriate for a casual wedding as it is for brunch or dinner in Montauk.
You won’t feel restricted thanks to the dress’ gathered bodice and elastic waistband. This is a go-to summer dress you’ll be reaching for again and again.

REVOLVE Wedding Guest Dresses for a Beach Wedding
What is “beachy cocktail” or “island elegance,” anyway? If you’re stumbling over tropical descriptors, turn your attention to these REVOLVE wedding guest dresses perfect for a ceremony in the sand.
By being designed with both a cowl neck and a cowl back, the Katie May Surreal Dress has all the carefree beachy vibes.
Lace detail at the back helps give the gown additional interest and provides a little more coverage. The stretch fabric helps keep you comfortable on the beach.
This dress is long, you’ll likely want to have it properly hemmed before wearing it on the beach. Many tailors can leave extra length when hemming the dress hidden into the seam in case you want it a few inches longer for a future event.
Typically, I’d be anti-black dress for a beach wedding, but the A.L.C. Moira Dress changes that.
The gown’s sleek cutouts and drapey skirt make it perfect for a beach wedding, especially for the color-averse.
Although full-length gowns are never ideal in the sand, if you’re attending a more formal beach wedding, they may be a necessary evil.
It won’t matter when you’re wearing the Sau Lee Nova Dress. The stunner is made of a fun pink and green ombre that practically screams resort, and has tasteful cutouts that will keep you from overheating (just make sure to lather on the sunscreen).
This asymmetrical satin number could just as easily be worn to a beach wedding as it could one in a more traditional venue.
The dress is shorter than other long wedding guest dresses, making it a good pick for the beach where uneven sand can easily fall into sweeping hemlines.

REVOLVE Wedding Guest Dresses for a Destination Wedding
It’s tough not to look at the below REVOLVE wedding guest dresses and not picture them at a wedding in the tropics of Southeast Asia or at a resort in South America. If you’re attending a destination wedding, look at the below finds.
With its tropical vibes and bright color, the Tularosa Camilla Maxi Dress strikes me as an unexpectedly versatile destination wedding guest dress, as far as location goes, that is.
The dress would work just as well for Southeast Asia as it would in South America, the Caribbean, or Hawaii.
The colorful embroidery on this bright pink dress is dainty but strong. It doesn’t feel too in your face or heavy.
Wherever you choose to wear the dress, this seems like one you’ll want to pack for your future vacation.
I can’t see a PatBO piece without immediately envisioning a fabulous resort escape somewhere beautiful. The Brazilian fashion label has made its name in dramatic resort wear that fits in at a gastronomic dinner in Tulum just as much as it does at a resort in the Maldives.
The PatBO Flutter Sleeve Maxi Dress plays off the brand’s signature pleating and chunky belt detail, balancing sexy cutouts with softer details like long cascading ruffles and shoulder gathers that almost mimic flowers.
Bronx and Banco’s Hanna Gown has it all—statement ruffle detail, audacious asymmetry, and a ladylike floral print that feels fresh and striking thanks to the gown’s bright yellow base in contrast with the cool-toned flowers.
This gown would turn heads at a destination wedding in the rolling hills of Italy’s Tuscany region, or a chateau in France.
Of course, it wouldn’t hurt to wear it to a wedding closer to home just to have an excuse for the gown to find a way into your closet, either.
