Deciding what to wear to a friend's wedding requires answering a few important questions. Is there a dress code? What can you expect the temperature to be? And is there a way to pick a dress you'll actually want to wear again? While we can't help with the first two, we can definitely offer up dresses that are wedding-appropriate and will work for other situations too.

Below, we've chosen to highlight 18 dresses worthy of a friend's wedding (since you're dressing to impress) but will work equally well for whatever else may be on your calendar in the coming months. While some definitely skew fancy, others are laid-back enough to wear out for weekend drinks. Ready to be the best dressed wedding guest? Read on, and feel free to do a little shopping.
