Spring and summer wedding season is just around the corner. And chances are, you’ve RSVP’d “yes” to at least one wedding in the coming months.

Time to turn up the fancy. A ballroom venue may call for a black tie dress code, and is definitely not the time for anything remotely casual. Dress to the nines in a regal satin or Mikado number. Whether it’s a ballgown, leg-baring A-line, or chic fit and flare, your look is sure to turn heads on the dance floor – and beyond.

Sun, sand, and sea; a beach wedding is exposed to all of the elements. Fabric and silhouette are key players here; choose a fit and flare wedding guest dress in a light fabric like scuba or crepe to stay cool. Avoid anything too tight or heavy (i.e. satin, brocade, or Mikado) so you can soak up the sun with confidence. As for shoes, opt for a dressy sandal for the easiest transition from sand to reception.

There’s no denying the elegance of a garden wedding. Complement this beautiful outdoor setting with – you guessed it – a pretty floral print dress. Check out our fresh picks here, and depending on the dress code, go for a short fit and flare, midi-length high-low, or long evening dress for a more formal environment. You grow, girl.

Twinkling lights, a bustling crowd below, and of course, a dazzling cityscape; a rooftop venue offers a truly unique appeal. Keep your look as sleek and sophisticated as the trendy setting; look for a slim-fitting style that shows off your curves or a shimmering party dress with an eye-catching open back.

Complement the rustic, rolling hills of a vineyard wedding with a dress that isn’t too flashy, in style or color. A soft pink, blue or even fuchsia hue won’t clash with the backdrop, making for beautiful photos in your look (because trust, you’ll be snapping more than a few). Opt for an easy-breezy silhouette that’s easy to maneuver on uneven terrain. And repeat after us: block heels, block heels, block heels!
