The release of the Barbie movie proved that pink isn’t a fleeting fad—the rosy color is a classic. Pink is my favorite color, so naturally, I’m constantly in search of the best pink wedding guest dresses for any dress code demand.
Whether you’re going for a pastel hue like blush pink or light pink or are going for something brighter, à la America’s favorite doll, pink is one of the best choices for wedding guest dress colors because it’s typically associated with love.
The color is no longer reserved just for spring and summer weddings. Deeper tones like rich magenta can fit right into a fall or winter wedding.
If you’re in the market for a blush-toned frock, stop scrolling through hundreds of search results and trying to sort through pages of products from different retailers. Turn your closet into something straight from the Dreamhouse with these pink wedding guest dresses, separated by dress code for easy shopping.
If you don’t want to spend hundreds on wedding guest dresses (they add up!), consider a formal dress rental from services like Rent the Runway. You’ll pay a fraction of what you would on a full-priced dress and won’t be stuck with something hanging in your closet for months unworn.

Wedding guest dresses can add up, especially if you’re going to multiple weddings this season! Lulus is a great choice if you’re looking for flattering dresses that don’t cost hundreds of dollars. Most of their dresses come in multiple color options, also making them a top choice for inexpensive bridesmaid dresses.
The affordable brand’s Dreaming of Elegance Blush Pink wedding guest dress easily slips into a black-tie affair. The one-shoulder cut lends itself to current trends while sweeping pleating adds interest and allows the gown to work on several different body types.

Pink Cocktail Wedding Guest Dresses
There are few ready-to-wear designers that my sister and I gush about more than Rebecca Vallance. The Australian label’s ultra-elegant, feminine special occasion pieces almost have the feel of a younger Carolina Herrera.
I recently ordered the Rebecca Vallance Matchmaker Strapless Bow-Back Mini Dress after it living in my head rent-free for months. The pink brocade cocktail dress features an oversized bow detail in the back worthy of Marilyn Monroe’s iconic gown in Gentlemen Prefer Blondes.
Love this style but want something longer? See also the Rebecca Vallance Brittany Bow Embellished Midi Dress.
At the formal end of a cocktail dress code is the Marchesa Notte One-Shoulder Taffeta Minidress. The cocktail-length dress leans into black-tie formality thanks to its over-the-shoulder bow that has its own train without feeling overly dressed up.
The V. Chapman Lily Ruched & Ruffled Stretch Midi Dress has been everywhere this wedding season, and it’s easy to see why.
The pink midi dress swaps the stiff satin and crepe of cocktail dresses for smocking, giving it tons of stretch and making it incredibly comfortable to wear.
Reviewers cite that the dress has so much stretch it can be worn one size down if your size is sold out.
Another wedding season hit this year, it’s tough to lose with the Elliatt Cassini Satin One-Shoulder Dress.
The hammered satin dress comes in tons of colors and utilizes loose draping to channel effortless beauty that flatters the wearer without overpowering her.
I recently ordered this dress in blue for a wedding I’m attending in September. It’s a little on the large side but likely not enough to size down (I typically take an XS, so I didn’t have the option to test this analysis).
The fabric is great quality for the price, though it is prone to snagging—keep your jewelry well above the neckline and your nails filed.
I can’t say that I’m on board with Reformation quality all the time, but it is still one of my go-to brands when I need a comfortable, non-fussy dress that’s simply flattering.
The Casette Silk Dress is an airy choice for a cocktail wedding guest dress. The floral style features a modest, high cowl neck in the front, and a lowcut, crossed-strap back. The midi dress is 100% silk, ideal for summer outdoor weddings when temperatures rise.
Although this print is pink and cream rather than white, I’d avoid this dress if the bride is on-edge about guests wearing any amount of white at the wedding. The dress is available in eight other colors if the pink floral won’t work.
Zac Posen is one of the first couture designers I fell in love with. His pieces balance sculpture and feminine detail for styles that feel like new classics.
After a hiatus, the brand is back and, evidently, making a statement. The Bow Accented Strapless Midi Dress is made in bright magenta with a large bow detail in the front that would make Audrey Hepburn jealous.
I’ve had my eye on the Cult Gaia Shannon Ostrich Feather Dress for a few months because, well, who can resist this fun feather number?

Part of creative director Wes Gordon’s collection inspired by Sisi, a former Empress of Austria, this stately Carolina Herrera mini dress is luxe without the need for ruffles and rhinestones.

Semi-Formal Pink Wedding Guest Dresses
Semi-formal is a frustratingly vague wedding guest dress code that can be tough to land. The good news is that you’ll probably see wedding guests in a mix of styles ranging from casual to cocktail.
The dress code is technically just a smidge more casual than cocktail, which makes the flamingo pink Amanda Uprichard Allora Dress a solid option.
Although you can get away with a shorter dress for a semi-formal dress code, it’s worth noting that if you’re over 5’5”, this dress might still be too short, based on reviews.
In my hours of research around semi-formal wedding dress codes, it became obvious that one of the best ways to nail the ambiguous request is by wearing a cocktail style in a more casual material like a knit or matte woven.
The Reformation Jamen Knit Dress isn’t your average jersey dress. The 90s-inspired dress features a chic, asymmetric twist on the off-the-shoulder sleeve.
Accentuating the body in allover ruching, the Norma Kamali Diana Dress is by far the designer’s most iconic style. The dress, available in mini, midi, and maxi lengths, is made of a soft stretch jersey draped over a bodysuit to maintain its structure.
This dress has been one of the most popular choices for cocktail and semi-formal wedding dress codes in recent years. It comes in tons of colors, the occasional metallic lamé or mesh, and works on nearly every body shape.
British label Self-Portrait made waves when it arrived in the fashion scene for its unabashedly feminine styles that use a mix of embellishment and textiles like lace and rhinestones.
The Self-Portrait Guipure Lace Midi Dress is an exceptionally ladylike number that would be appropriate at a spring or summer wedding. The dress features heavy pink lace, gold buttons, and braided trim. Let the dress’ detail take front and center by skipping heavy accessorizing in lieu of floral gold stud earrings and a metallic gold heel.
One of my biggest gripes with Reformation’s dresses is their incessant need to add smocking to the back of every dress. It’s helpful for ensuring fit but makes each piece look too casual for most cocktail events. However, you can likely get away with this silk dress at a semiformal wedding.
Made out of 100% silk, the Marguerite Silk Dress can be customized to your body thanks to the tie straps and smocked back. The plain dress could be paired with a beaded embellished bag and coordinating statement earrings for a bolder look or could be kept simple with a white bag and rhinestone pendant necklace.
This Self-Portrait frock transforms a familiar style with allover pleating, bringing extra texture to the look. Of pink wedding guest dresses, this dress stands out for its cotton candy tone and unexpected yellow flowers.
Casual Pink Wedding Guest Dresses
The Nadira Dress feels like a no-brainer if you’re in the market for casual pink wedding guest dresses.
The pink midi dress features a large floral print, tie straps, and a smocked back in a lightweight georgette fabric.
This dress is available in eight stunning floral prints, such as a black one perfect for a fall wedding and a “Countryside” print that could easily be imagined in the summer.
A casual wedding certainly isn’t an invitation to wear your favorite errands outfit, but you can definitely get away with a shorter dress.
Dance the day away in the Agua by Agua Bendita Caramelo Primavera Mini Dress. A quality cotton poplin keeps the number breathable despite its large puff sleeves and heavily pleated waist.
There’s no denying that Abercrombie & Fitch has been on its comeback tour in recent years. Pivoting towards reliable basics, the brand’s rediscovered focus on simple styles has allowed it to become popular for wedding guest dresses.
The Emerson Ruched Strapless Midi Dress is an easy one to wear all season long. The strapless ruched bodice dress allows the wearer to shine by staying away from superfluous embellishment and voluminous cuts. If you’re concerned about a dress malfunction while tearing it up on the dance floor, don’t fret—optional straps are included.
