Summer weddings are wonderful: sunshine-soaked bunting, plenty of Pimm’s, and frantically searching for a suitable dress the day before when most options are either too revealing or too frumpy and the only ones you like are white but you can’t upstage the bride, ARGH! Okay, so not the last part, and that’s why we’ve compiled a list of the most stylish handmade and vintage wedding guest dresses, so you can concentrate on the fun stuff.

The bright print is screaming out for a summer wedding; this figure-flattering dress is handmade in Ghana and shipped from London.
