From Over 19,000 ASOS Dresses, These Are the 23 We'd Wear to a Wedding This Year

Is it just us, or are there A LOT of weddings happening this year? Not that we’re complaining—2023 feels like a very good year to celebrate love in all its forms. It’s just, with all these weddings being postponed and rearranged thanks to the pandemic, our social diaries for the year ahead are looking busier than ever already. This, of course, means there's a need for lots of lovely outfits

When it comes to event dressing, for weddings or other one-off events where you want to feel your best, we seriously recommend trying out dress rental. We love HurrMy Wardrobe and Rotaro in particular for really fun pieces you'll love but may not necessarily wear again. Sometimes, though, for a really special occasion, you want to invest in a dress to own for more than a few nights—one you can bring out for every wedding in your diary and feel confident and beautiful in every time.

There’s the option of a versatile throw-on dress you can wear with both trainers and heels, day or night (great for that cost-per-wear investment). Or maybe you’re looking to invest in a designer piece you’ve really fallen for and know you’ll own forever. But if you’re looking for a more affordable yet showstopping dress guaranteed to bring in compliments from your ex’s new S.O., we’ve found the answer, and it comes in the form of ASOS Edition.

The premium line from the original online retailer is our fashion-insider secret to finding easy, wow-factor dresses for less, and the new 2023 collection is particularly impressive. It contains a huge edit of styles across a diverse range of sizes (UK 4 to 30). It's mostly occasionwear, but there are some great, fashion-approved everyday ones too, and they all have expensive-looking details such as bows, prints or unique fabrics. 

With almost 20 thousand dresses on ASOS right now, it can be overwhelming when searching for the styles truly worthy of your attention, so we thought it would be helpful to spotlight our favourites from the new Edition collection below as we head into wedding-and-event season once again.
