Wedding Guest Attire: Caribbean Cocktail

Tuesday, April 26, 2016


Love was in the air this weekend as I attended a beautiful wedding on the Caribbean shores of St. Lucia. With palm trees swaying behind the newlyweds as they gave their vows under the beaming sun, the setting could not have been more perfect. 

Get ready for a burst of summertime here on Looks by Lau, as the next few posts will feature my vacation outfits against the stunning landscapes of St. Lucia. First stop: wedding guest attire.



Dress: c/o Tobi

Wedding attire may be the most confusing selection when it comes to a girl's wardrobe. Everything is about balance, from choosing the appropriate color to making a statement without overshadowing the bride. I knew this was the perfect Caribbean dress at first sight because it combines a sleek silhouette with breezy, beach-ready details.

When it comes to wedding guest dresses, don't sacrifice your personal style. Clothing should always support confidence, especially when it comes to standing in a room full of guests dressed to impress. It's not every day that you get to twirl around in your favorite evening outfit, so you might as well make the most of each opportunity. And even at your 9-to-5, rock that office look like it's fresh off the runway.

  11. You are right picking a dress for a wedding is not easy but you got it perfect for this one. The backless detail requires confidence but is sexy if you can pull it off just like you did. Apparently, I was also wearing a backless dress in my current post so I know how hard it is to keep the poise. Confidence is the key after all. Love your dress and how you carry it.

  16. I was married here and it is a fantastic venue. The food, service and mostly the staff were truly amazing. Despite the pouring rain storm, constant emails requesting changes, and nervous energy, these guys from Malibu wedding venues delivered the most enchanting night.
