Picking an outfit for your best friend’s big day can be a stressful matter for two reasons: a lack of time that is the result of being on bridal duty 24/7 and the fear of overshadowing the blushing bride. While it’s true that the festivities are all about celebrating her declaration of love, a style-conscious girlfriend will be sure to search high and low for the most elegant number to mark the occasion. With that in mind, Savoir Flair scoured the digital shopping sphere to bring you the ultimate BFF edit of both affordable and high-end pieces to inspire your selection – suitable for outdoor weddings, indoor ceremonies, and everything in between.

A classic A-line or fishtail gown in punchy tones and extravagant fabrics should be your go-to style for formal functions. However, you can always spice things up with an evening power suit – it’s chic and totally unexpected.

The light-hearted theme is perfect for sporting your tried-and-tested styles with a fun tweak to the color, fabric, or cut. Go all out in gold sequin dresses, sensual red pieces, or unlikely sweet coordinates to stand out in the crowd.

An outdoor wedding is your chance to indulge in color and print thanks to the vibrant and natural setting. Be literal with boho-chic silhouettes and vivid hues, but remember to keep your accessories to a minimum.

A slick styling tip for a laid-back party is to pay extra attention to details. Exceptional tailoring, trendy accessories, and unusual elements (like a metallic finish on an otherwise simple dress) add enough glam for a low-key occasion.
