Based on the invitations that may have already begun to pile up, you're likely well aware that wedding season is on the horizon. And to be honest, the time to start planning is now. We've all found ourselves throwing together an outfit for a wedding at the last minute and know that it's not ideal. So let's try to avoid that, shall we?

An excellent place to look for inspiration for wedding guest outfits is the spring runways. This season, in particular, they were filled with pretty trends that would suit a special occasion perfectly (and that you'll want to wear beyond the wedding). I narrowed it down to seven trends, which include colors, dresses, accessories, and shoes, that will make you stand out at a wedding without drawing too much attention away from the couple. Scroll to familiarize yourself with the straight-from-the-runway trends, and shop items that hit the nail on the head.

If your dress is on the simpler side, a pair of pretty shoulder-dusting earrings are just the thing to dress it up a bit.

We all know that wearing a red dress to a wedding is considered a faux pas, but red in the form of shoes, accessories, or part of your dress won't detract from the couple, so you're safe.

Rosettes have been the micro-trend of the moment for the past couple of seasons, and the good news is that it's carrying on into spring. And it couldn't be more perfect for a wedding.

You're probably not going to want to take this one too literally when attending a wedding, but details such as a dress with a corset bodice or a satin dress trimmed with lace are quite lovely and romantic.
