What to Know About Wedding Guest Dresses for Spring

 

Tips:

Time of day plays a role in picking your spring wedding guest dress as does where the nuptials will take place (a backyard, church, etc.). Feel free to don a bold floral and flowy maxi dress to an afternoon garden wedding. A church affair with a formal dress code will call for a fancier frock. Meanwhile, an evening soiree requires a cocktail dress. Lace is a pretty look for spring, and you can’t go wrong wearing a soft shade of pink or blue. But just because it’s springtime doesn’t mean you can’t wear black or a more neutral color. As you browse our picks, think about which styles will best suit your body type and what vibe you are going for: sexy, understated, flirty, fun, sophisticated or regal.

 

 

Spring Wedding Guest Dress Shopping Considerations

 

Cost:

Shop spring wedding guest frocks from $60 to $450, with plenty of picks at price points in-between.

 

 

Color:

Spring is synonymous with bright pastel hues and floral motifs, which we love for a wedding guest dress. Don’t be afraid to default to basic black, though — sometimes nothing does the trick quite like a classic LBD.

 

 

Style:

Spring is a fun season to be a wedding guest because anything goes when it comes to dress length. You can also get away with a long-sleeve style or a slip dress. Keep reading to see our favorite spring wedding guest dresses from casual to cocktail in a multitude of flattering and fun silhouettes.
