1. Long Ankara wedding guest styles

Many ladies prefer traditionally long Ankara outfits for their weddings, and there are hundreds of beautiful styles to choose from.

Cape has been one of the most popular ways to upgrade the basic long gown silhouette this year.

Even minimal use of Ankara can be quite effective if you pair it with plain white material that makes the Ankara pattern even more striking.

For a truly regal look at your next wedding, consider a majestic Ankara gown with a train that will definitely impress everyone.

Why have just one frilled hem in your Ankara gown when you can have three?

Picking just one detail in your future Ankara dress and building the rest of the outfit around it is a very effective strategy – just look at these incredible sleeves!

Not all memorable Ankara wedding guest looks are dresses – the classic Nigerian combination of skirt and blouse works perfectly too.

Another unusual choice for a wedding that managed to surprise us is this pairing of straight-legged Ankara trousers with a designer blouse.

If you want everyone’s eyes on you as soon as you enter the room, a gorgeous dress with a train is your best choice.

Add matching fringe to your Ankara dress to make it even more suited for a special occasion like a wedding.

When in doubt, go with the classic – there are few things better for a wedding than an off-shoulder Ankara gown with a train.

An Ankara dress doesn’t necessarily need an intricate design to impress – a figure-hugging off-shoulder gown can also look very cute!

Get inspired by the traditional Nigerian kaftan styles for your next wedding guest outfit!

A plunging neckline is a bold choice for an Ankara wedding look, but this fashion risk will definitely pay off!

2. Short Ankara wedding guest styles

If you want to spice up your usual wedding guest look or are ready to try a new cut, here are short gown styles you’ll love.

We don’t know what we love more about this look: the one-shoulder design, long sleeves, or a striking red frill over the neckline.

To ensure a perfect fit, sew your wedding guest Ankara dress with elastic threads.

We don’t see halter necklines that often anymore, which only makes the next dress more special.

A full skirt with asymmetric length is an homage to traditional style with the hint of modern dress design.

Another example of subtle yet effective Ankara use is this red dress with an Ankara belt.

In the next short Ankara dress it’s all about the sleeves – these puff sleeves would look great in just about any gown.

Monochrome Ankara fabric with bright accents is getting more and more popular this year.

White Ankara pattern with yellow and turquoise is a fantastic choice for a fun summer wedding.

When the pattern and the cut of your dress is fairly simple, you have more freedom to try different accessories.

Just imagine how fun it will be to dance in this short off-shoulder Ankara dress with a full skirt!

Add a white collar to your short Ankara dress and you’ll be able to wear it anywhere!

The simple cut of this dress is the perfect match for the intricate and unusual fabric pattern.
