While you might think that floral prints are best reserved for the spring and summer months, they're actually surprisingly versatile, and can easily be worn year-round. This popular print comes in tons of gorgeous iterations from bright and cheery botanicals to moody floral motifs. So, if you're looking for a foolproof outfit to wear to all of your weddings on deck this year, opt for a pretty floral frock.

When it comes to finding the perfect floral-infused dress, color plays a major role. For fall and winter weddings, dresses in muted and deep tones like emerald green, rust, and black feel especially fitting for cold-weather nuptials. But, for spring, summer, and destination weddings, it's best to don mini dresses in vibrant floral patterns or lightweight gowns in soft blossom prints, for balmy outdoor celebrations.

Whether you're attending a rustic wedding surrounded by fall foliage or headed to a sunny seaside locale, we've rounded up 25 gorgeous floral dresses for every season and style.
