The Trendiest Dresses to Wear to a Spring/ Summer Wedding


1. Something Flouncy - The fit and flare dress trend is still going strong for 2014. A fit and flair dress with ruffles or flouncing in the skirt adds such a feminine touch to any cocktail dress. It's also a great style for a daytime outdoor wedding; it looks dressy but has that easy breezy look about it. I love the knee-length cocktail dresses above, because they can be cocktail dressy with the right accessories, yet I could also see myself wearing one with flats on a Saturday of shopping or brunch. It's important to get a lot of use out of a pricey cocktail dress.

The draped maxi dress is perfect for attending a formal summer wedding. In fact, it would be a beautiful spring or summer bridesmaid dress if all the bridesmaids are wearing matching dresses. Printed bridesmaid dresses are a new wedding style trend that I think will grow in the next few years.

2. Something Striped - Stripes are always a big pattern trend for spring, mostly due to the nod to nautical. For 2014 a top dress trend is bold stripes and yet again color blocking. To get a bold striped dress for a more dressy occasion like a wedding, go for something in either softer colors, or pair the traditional nautical stripes with a punch of color. The fabric makes a big difference as well. Something in a shiny taffeta or a chiffon lends itself to a more dressy occasion. For a nautical outdoor wedding in which the bridesmaids are completely matching, one of the taffeta striped dresses pictured above would actually make great bridesmaid dresses. Here is a gorgeous example of some matching striped bridesmaid dresses.

3. Something Floral - Spring is of course always a time for floral prints, so a feminine flowy dress in a floral print is perfect to wear to a spring wedding. I mentioned the option of using the striped dresses above as matching bridesmaid dresses, and it's the same way with the florals. Matching printed bridesmaid dresses is a quickly emerging wedding trend for 2014, and really what could be better for a Spring wedding than florals? I'm even seeing a lot of vintage-inspired weddings feature bridesmaids in a matching floral print in several different colors. Here are some beautiful examples of floral print bridesmaid dresses. If you're simply attending a spring wedding, a floral print summer dress is a great buy, as you can wear it over and over for any number of events, and you can easily dress it up or down. It's also a great investment piece since florals are always in.
