If your summer plans include weddings, weddings, and more weddings, then I'm betting that—aside from trying to navigate a complicated world of PTO, traveling, showers, bachelorette parties, and gift giving—you need quite a few outfits.

And while I may not be the leading expert in finding cheap flights or narrowing down a registry, one thing I can always help you with is finding a damn good dress. Enter today’s roundup of chic, party-ready frocks to help you be the best dressed guest at all your weddings this summer. That’s right—from gowns to midis to minis in a range of colors, silhouettes, prints, vibes, and budgets, I've got (at least) something for everyone and every party, but don’t be surprised if you end up checking out on more than a few. If you’ve heard enough and are ready go get to shopping, simply keep scrolling.


Since starting as an intern back in 2013, Nicole Akhtarzad Eshaghpour has held several roles here at Who What Wear, and she is currently Editor-at-Large. It was a less expected route, seeing as she was graduating from business school at USC when this all began, but it has turned out to be the best one for her. Fast-forward to 2024, and she's moved to NYC from her hometown of Beverly Hills and spends her workdays a little differently from when she was an intern starting out. Currently, she focuses on a weekly mélange of shopping content. As far as her personal style goes, she's largely drawn to classic pieces and neutral basics but will always make an exception for something colorful, printed, or bejeweled as long as it's deemed worthy enough. After all, the only thing she loves more than a good party is dressing up for one. On weekdays, she can usually be found at home eating something delicious for dinner and trying to force her husband to watch Summer House.
