5 Conscious Platforms to Shop For a Last Minute Wedding Guest Outfit

Vic Binns

We’ve all been there – under pressure scrambling to find a wedding guest outfit because we kept putting it off. That feeling of absolute dread when the date is quickly approaching and the time to order online is running out. But where can you count on to shop that’s both sustainable and fits the criteria for suitable wedding guest attire in quick succession? If you’re based in London, you’re in luck – these are my picks the best IRL places to shop when you’re running out of time to nail your wedding guest look.

Loanhood x Wildswans
Stella Nova - Printed Maxi Wrap Dress
Ganni - 3D Jacquard Ruffle Midi Dress

A collaboration of dreams, Islington based boutique, Wildswans, has joined forces with rental platform Loanhood to launch their own in store rental capsule. Yes, that means you can walk straight into the store, try on a dress and rent it there and then.  Easy peasy.  With pieces to rent from brands like Essentiel Antwerp and Ganni you’re bound to fall in love.

Lone Design Club
Mirla Beane Dress
Bastet Noir - the Candy Dress

Lone Design Club is my top recommendation to find unique pieces from a curated selection of independent designers. With both an online store and pop-up’s across the capital (and sometimes outside of London too!) you can find a wedding guest outfit that fits your personal style whilst supporting ethical & independent brands – it’s a big tick from me.
