What To Wear to A Spring Wedding

Hello, Spring wedding season!

As spring wedding invitations begin to land in your mailbox, they may mention dress codes that leave you scratching your head—or worse, offer no clue at all. We’ve broken down the tricky lingo so you know exactly what to wear to a spring wedding!

Casual Spring Wedding

The relaxed atmosphere of a casual wedding leaves a lot of leeway for your outfit. These are perfect events for wearing a fun neckline, a playful pattern, a bright color, or a flowy silhouette. Let your dress make the statement and keep your accessories minimal. When it comes to spring weddings, it’s always a good idea to keep the venue location in mind when choosing shoes: wedges, flats, and platforms are perfect since they won’t sink into the ground outside!

Semi-Formal Spring Wedding

Trying to figure out what to wear to a spring wedding when the dress code says semi-formal, or, even worse—says nothing at all? Think of semi-formal attire as wedding guest default mode. If the invite doesn’t specify how to arrive, reach for a classic cocktail dress or a simple floor-length dress in your favorite color. Pair with a statement smoky eye and a nude lip for a fail-proof semi-formal look.

Formal Spring Wedding

Pull out all the stops—without upstaging the bride, of course! It’s all in the details for formal and black-tie occasions: Try a gown with eye-catching embellishments that sparkle and shine all night long. Pair your most dramatic and sophisticated accessories to finish off this spring wedding outfit. With the warmer weather opt for warmer toned metals like gold or rose gold to complete your spring wedding look!

Black Tie Spring Wedding

If your invite says black tie, it’s time to find a gown! Your dress should hit the the ground or the top of your feet; if it’s too short or a midi style, you may look too informal next to the other guests. People often think black dresses are a no-go for weddings, but this isn’t true, especially for black tie. Picking a darker color will add a sense of formality to your look, perfect for a classy wedding. Consider picking a style with some sparkle or lace to add personality while still sticking to dress code.

Mother of the Bride &
Groom Styles for Spring

It’s the bride’s big day… but it’s your big day, too! Pick a dress that complements the bridal party’s color family, but still feels entirely you. Floral lace and dreamy chiffon fabrics are perfect for a springtime wedding. Experiment with bright, fresh colors, or soft, dusty pastels to complete your spring wedding outfit! Add matching accessories and you’ll be beaming with pride—and with style.
