It’s been 13 years since Meryl Streep burst our floral-print bubble in The Devil Wears Prada, and yet we can’t help but reference her cutting quote every time we think about the blooming motif. Sure, Streep’s Miranda Priestly wasn’t wrong about floral prints feeling expected for spring, but sorry Madame Runway, blooms are quintessential this time of year and never going anywhere! And they are the answer to all of your wedding guest woes. In fact, floral print wedding guest dresses seemingly get better and better every season as designers continuously rethink them for the modern woman. In the world of wedding guest attire, floral prints are one of the most romantic looks you can wear when witnessing I do's, with this season’s assortment feeling fresher than ever for spring and summer weddings.

In recent seasons, nostalgia has played a huge part in fashion from 90s-era everything to an increased interest in vintage. This affinity for all things old school certainly applies to floral prints—largely thanks to Gucci’s creative director, Alessandro Michele, who’s famous for championing a “Grandma chic” aesthetic, whether it’s a wallpaper-inspired motif á la the 60s and 70s, vibrant 80s blossom, or ditsy floral print that feels totally 90s grunge (though we don’t suggest rocking them with combat boots at a wedding). The way these blooms feel modern is by way of silhouette, and some of our favorite fits for wedding guest dresses feature asymmetrical details, drop waists, voluminous sleeves, high-low hems, and corseted waists.

For a ladylike look, a midi-length floral dress is always ideal whether you’re into a bustier-style top, ruched waist, or tiered skirt. For something a bit flirtier, go mini but balance out the look with long sleeves, ideally with a bit of volume. If your taste is super feminine, a fuller skirt with a cinched waist is gorgeous in a floral print and a universally flattering silhouette for a range of body shapes and sizes. Into simplicity? A floral print slip or wrap dress is undoubtedly for you.
