3 Looks for A Spring Wedding
Between spring and throughout summer, you may be attending multiple weddings. Finding the right look for different dress codes can be a little tricky, and it can be even more confusing during different seasons. For spring, you may be invited to an outdoor wedding, for example. And even though outdoor tends to be more casual, an outdoor garden wedding for example, can be anything from casual to cocktail attire. And while a formal indoor wedding comes with its own set of rules, those rules can bend a little during the warmer months.
A black tie wedding anytime of year, especially an indoor evening wedding, calls for a nice gown. And while a formal evening wedding generally calls for darker colors and heavier fabrics, it's okay to lighten up for spring. Just make sure it's a formal dress, full length, and of course not white...or anything too bold like bright red or yellow. A chiffon or lace pastel gown is perfect for a formal spring wedding. A soft floral print, like this chiffon pleated gown, is also a great option. Here is a gorgeous budget option for under $50.
Ladies who have been bridesmaids, this is the perfect opportunity to reuse that gown, if you don't mind wearing it again anyway. I know if I ever attend a black tie event, I will be putting that old pleated chiffon gown to good use! Pictured: Little Mistress Sweetheart Maxi dress with Pleated Bust
For a black-tie-optional wedding during spring, it's simple. Just follow the same guidelines I just mentioned for the formal black tie, only you could go with a midi or knee-length cocktail dress instead of a full-length gown. A fit-and-flare or A-line dress like the one pictured above, with the flutter sleeves, is very feminine and flattering on all body types.

An outdoor garden wedding may call for "cocktail attire" or even dressy-casual. Though most of them call for "garden attire." This can be confusing, and I think it leads most people to believe it means casual. While unless it says "formal garden attire" or "casual garden attire," you should assume it to be more similar to dressy-casual or black-tie optional....really somewhere in between,, and in keeping with the season.
For example, go with pastels or floral prints. I think it's the perfect time to wear a pretty maxi (not necessarily a gown), a dressy jumpsuit, or a pretty two-piece dress. Fabrics can also reflect the season. Lace and chiffon, for example, are very on trends for spring, and something with ruffles or flowing fabric is also a great choice.
