Patterned dresses—florals, stripes, polka dots, plaids, and the like—bring a lively explosion of color to your photos, and to the wedding as a whole. They also bring a particularly whimsical feel to more casual, laid-back weddings, and tend to photograph extremely well in outdoor settings. Best of all, they're among the most wear-again-able styles around.
See, it works!
