When springtime is here and love is in the air, there’s nothing like the beauty and sweetness of a spring wedding. Get ready to revel in the fun and romance with the perfect guest outfit for a spring wedding. From flattering women's dresses to relaxed mix-and-match pieces for casual weddings, there are options for every woman to look her best for the big event. Here are our top tips for what to wear to a spring wedding.
A knee-length wrap dress is a great option for a spring wedding. Not only is it flattering for every body type with its hourglass shape, but it’s also comfortable. The fabrics are typically made from blends that include a slight amount of stretch, so the dress will look as if it’s made just for you. This knee-length dress, which boasts a slight flare at the bottom, works well for most weddings. The flattering V-neckline also makes it easy to show off your favorite jewelry.
Timeless and elegant, a spring sheath is perfect for any wedding. This classic look is more fitted than wrap and A-line styles, but it’s still comfortable. You can find sleeveless, short-sleeve, and three-quarter length sleeve options, so choose the one you like the best. Sheath dresses look beautiful with elegant sun hats for outdoor spring weddings or spring beach weddings. Flats and heels are also appropriate with this dress style.
If you’re looking for a pretty, feminine look that will be picture-perfect at a spring-wedding, look no further than a dress style that incorporates sweet flounces or delicate flutter sleeves. You can find these trending looks in midi and long lengths, and their slightly romantic vibe makes them an appealing choice for wedding wear. Decorative sandals or flats pair well with these breezy, beautiful women’s dresses.
Pants or women's cropped pants in a slim, tailored fit are not only flattering, but they also appear dressy and polished, too. This makes them a great alternative to dresses. These pants look sophisticated when paired with dressy women's blouses in button-up or floaty styles. Step into some simple flats to finish off the look
Other options for women who prefer wearing pants for dressy occasions are bootcut trousers and wide-leg crops. Trousers are excellent for evenings or for more elegant day weddings when paired with an appropriately dressy blouse and flats or heels. Wide-leg crops are a pretty but more casual option that looks gorgeous at a day or informal wedding. Either of these bottoms can be worn with fitted blouses or lightweight dressy tops.
For informal weddings, fit and flare dresses made from knit fabrics are a popular option. These flowy, comfortable styles have enough stretch to be comfortable yet still flattering. Contemporary looks like prints and stripes pair beautifully with this relaxed dress style. Wear jersey dresses like these with simple sandals and fun accessories, such as colorful spring earrings.
Maxi dresses can work for many spring weddings–especially those that are outdoor or take place at the beach or near the water. The longer length helps these dresses feel more elegant even though their overall look is on the more relaxed side. Pair with cute embellished flats or decorative thong sandals. The dressy yet casual combo will keep you comfortable from the ceremony to the end of the reception.
If you’re trying to choose between solid colors and print dresses for your spring wedding outfit, don’t stress. You can’t go wrong with pretty floral prints or other patterns for almost any day, outdoor, or informal wedding. Prints can also work well for informal evening weddings. Solid colors have a slightly more dressy feel, so if you’re on the fence, consider choosing a single-colored dress. Pastels or brights are good for day weddings, while deeper, richer shades are a more sophisticated choice for evening wear. Remember to avoid white, unless expressly permitted by the bride, or else you’ll be in breach of wedding etiquette! Black can be worn for more formal or upscale weddings, but it’s best to avoid for casual and daytime events.
While modern weddings can often veer on the casual side, it’s important to remember that this is not always the case. Be sure to look at the invitation and if clarification is necessary, inquire about the dress code to adhere to the bride and groom’s wishes.
As a wedding guest, you’ll want to look your best as you help the newlyweds celebrate their big day. From feminine relaxed styles for the most informal of weddings to sleek classic looks that are appropriate for more formal weddings, the options for spring wedding guest outfits are endless!
