Wedding Season Is Coming—Here Are 24 Dresses to Wear to Every Event

The best wedding guest outfit ideas



The beginning of spring means a few things: warmer weather, sundresses, longer days, and the arrival of wedding season. If you haven't already been bombarded with invites, prepare yourself because they're probably coming. Between the engagement parties, bridal showers, and ceremonies, attending a wedding means you need quite a few outfits. And if you're actually in the wedding, that's a whole other story. 

To help prepare you (and myself, if I'm being honest), I decided it would be a good idea to round up the best dresses for all of the aforementioned occasions to give you a head start on your outfit planning. Typically, the ceremony gets all the glory, but I've found it can be equally as challenging to find looks you like for other wedding activities, such as the bridal shower and rehearsal dinner. So after sifting through all my favorite retailers, I've put together 24 of the best wedding guest outfit ideas for every event on your Google calendar this season. 


The ruching on this dress is just so pretty.

Wear this to the engagement party and then probably 20 more events this year.

Spoiler alert: Polka dots are going to be huge for spring 2020. 

The collar really caught my eye on this one. 


I actually wore this dress to a bridal shower last weekend and have truly never received more compliments. 

A bridal shower is just one of the many things you'd be able to wear this dress to. 

Pink doesn't get more appropriate than for a bridal shower.


Understated enough not to steal any attention from the bride, yet perfectly elegant. 

Florals are always a good idea for spring.

The high-shine fabric is so pretty.

This dress looks so fun to dance in.

This is one of those versatile dresses you'll be so glad is in your closet.


I also wore this dress to a rehearsal dinner a few months ago, and it was a huge hit.

The ruched detailing makes this dress look much more expensive than it is. 

This dress is begging to be worn with statement earrings. 

This color will photograph beautifully.
