Bridgerton-inspired Wedding Guest Dresses

We know our blog readers are all classy ladies, well… classy with a bit of sassy! Sometimes trying to get that perfect mix of sophistication and sexiness can be a fine line. One of the latest trends that seems to get that balance just right is named Regencycore, based on one of our favorite TV shows, the fabulous Bridgerton. This mix of high-society glam and vintage couture has reigned over our fashionistas, stylish brides, and guests, since Bridgerton was first released in December 2020. The first season seems so long ago, followed by a juicy season two, a confirmed season three for late 2023 and a spin-off TV show soon to be released in May!

We all fell in love with the characters, the storyline, and maybe just a little with the rather dashing, Duke and Viscount. There is no doubt we adore the Regencycore style too, with the release of Bridgerton inspiring a jaw-dropping 146% increase in searches for floral dresses and an 84% rise in searches for Regency dresses.

So, what is Regencycore? As the name suggests it does have Regency at the core with jacquard and brocade designs. The color palette is blues, purples, pinks, greens, yellows, and oranges but the shades are on the softer side. A little floral but not garish bold flowers - soft just like the color palette. Empire waistlines and long or mid-length hemlines work well - not a mini skirt in sight! Necklines can be a scoop, v, or high and these Regency ladies were not adverse to showing more than a little cleavage! Sleeves can be short and simple, puffy, or fitted. A plethora of embellishments are usually part of this look with detailing, lace, pearls, and crystals to the forefront, but these elements often have a modern twist.

This trend shows no sign of abating so let's delve right into some of our Bridgerton outfit inspo. Why not chat with us on our live chat to show us your Bridgerton-style dresses and get a free consultation on which Bella Belle Shoes will be the perfect match.

Daphne Wedding Guest Style

Daphne Bridgerton Wedding Guests

Daphne Bridgerton was the sweet but charismatic star of season 1. Her preferred color was a pale dusky blue and her style was somewhat demure. But behind the sweet, innocent facade, Daphne was a strong, intelligent woman who captured the heart of the Duke of Hastings. 

For our Daphne Bridgerton-inspired wedding guest dress we have discovered this delicate blue chiffon dress from Self-Portrait. With a pretty lace trim and pleated skirt, this charming dress would look so ravishing with our Vivian bridal shoes. Hard crafted in luxury lace with soft blue blossoms, these bridal shoes are made for comfort with their block heels, perfect for walking and dancing.

Lady Whistledown Inspo

Lady Whistledown Bridgerton Wedding Guests

Known for her infamous newsletter aka pure gossip but also her endearing nature, Lady Penelope Featherdown is reputed to be the main character in the upcoming season 3. Penelope’s style revolves around yellows and oranges and she does adore a floral print. This fetching creation from Badgley Mischka embodies all these features but you will also see a very 2023 twist, from the back. The jacquard fabric crosses with a frilly edging and reveals a sun-kissed back. Throw yourself completely into yellow with these super comfy Reece sling-back bridal pumps with a regal bow. You will be sure to grab the front page of Lady Whistledown’s Society Paper in this beautiful Bridgerton-inspired wedding guest dress.

Regal Mother of the Bride 

Queen Bridgerton Wedding Guests

The new spinoff from Bridgerton covers the fascinating tale of Queen Charlotte. The story covers the meeting of young Charlotte and her future husband the King of England. Charlotte is afraid that King George "is clearly a beast or a troll” and I am sure we will all find this new series equally entertaining.

As for Queen Charlotte’s wardrobe, beige is very much the order of the day, with brocade embellishments and jacquard patterns. We have toned it down a little, to bring this regal style into 2023, with this elegant gown from Teri Jon. Of course, the Queen must have crystals so what could be more fitting than our bejeweled Frances kitten heels? With breathable champagne mesh decadently hand embellished with glistening jewels and plush insoles, you are sure to feel like a queen for the day.

Sweet but Scandalous Wedding Guest

Marina Bridgerton Wedding Guests

Marina Thompson was such a sweet character but her plotline revolved around her ‘scandalous condition’ of being pregnant and unmarried! To save Marina from this terrible situation the family tried to marry her off to some pretty horrendous suitors. If you are holding out for the perfect partner or perhaps are not a stranger to a little scandal, why not consider this amazing gown from Savin London. Marina did have a penchant for a floral pattern and this Savin creation has flowers to die for. The fabulous puffy sleeves gave us serious Bridgeton outfit inspo and to complete this look we would suggest our opulent gold wedding heels. Teagan features elegant and secure crystal gold straps winding up the ankle to help you create some extra scandal on the dance floor.

Eloise Bridgerton Inspired Wedding Guest Dress

Eloise Bridgerton Wedding Guests

Eloise Bridgerton is for sure one woman who knows her mind and doesn't seem to mind being a little outspoken. Perhaps Eloise is a little bit of a wolf in sheep's clothing! Eloise tends to dress in subtle shades with pretty embellishments, which one could say, masks the wild woman underneath! For the wedding guest who wishes to emulate Eloise, we have spotted this little number from Mac Duggal. This cap-sleeved gown sparkles with its highly embellished bodice and flowing skirt. The 2023 twist is a daring split perfect for showing off these gorgeous bridal sandals. Our Fabiola wedding shoes are handcrafted in a subtle blush silk but the pièce de résistance is the exquisite, ornate embellishment on the heel. Furthermore, these darling wedding shoes are so comfortable you will be able to party all night.
