Although Meryl Streep may have instilled in us the subconscious mentality that sporting flower patterns during warmer temps is passé, floral wedding guest dresses surprisingly come in plenty of original options, just in time for all your summer nuptials on deck this year. You can't go wrong with florals anyway, no matter the season, but the decorative print makes for the perfect wedding-ready getup. They're bold, playful, and even a little bit romantic, hence what makes flower power all the rage as a summer wedding guest. And, even though flower clothing tends to scream overly feminine, you'll have no problem finding a more modern, cool-girl botanical vibe this season, in case that meets your floral fancy.

If you're under a time crunch and still haven't come across the right dress to sport for your cousin or college roommate's upcoming wedding, avert your attention to seasonally-appropriate bloom-infused attire. From fresh silhouettes (ruffled midis! asymmetrical lace hems! neck bows!) to print combos that will make a statement without diverting too much attention from the bride, there's no shortage of floral wedding guest dresses that you can also add to your summer wardrobe rotation after the ceremony. Plus, whether you're attending a formal destination affair or an intimate backyard soirée, there's a floral frock with your name and budget written all over it.

Check out our roundup of 30 wedding guest dresses that have the floral trend down pat. Just try to steer clear of white or ivory backgrounds to avoid stealing the bride's spotlight—you'll still earn major style points and guest brownie points.
