You’ve sent in your RSVP for a formal celebration, but you’re not quite ready to take the plunge with a floor length gown…enter the midi dress! Fancier than a standard cocktail dress but less dramatic than a gown, a formal midi dress is perhaps the most versatile option in our collection of wedding guest dresses.. A black formal midi dress is a closet staple that you can wear to cocktail hour with a chic block heel, or dress up for a night on the town with high heels and sparkling jewelry. We also love options with eye-catching texture, like a formal lace midi dress for spring celebrations or a pleated midi dress with incredible movement. For winter weddings, consider a long sleeve midi dress. And if you’re the bride, a white formal midi dress is a closet essential for bridal showers, rehearsal dinners, and engagement photos.
Wondering what jewelry to wear with a formal midi dress? To make this shorter option feel a bit fancier, we recommend lots of sparkle in your accessories. Think chandelier earrings, a spangled clutch, or shoes with eye-catching details.
