Whether you're getting married at a vineyard in the summer or exchanging vows at a snowy locale, there's a shade of gray out there to suit all types of celebrations. As elegant as they are versatile, gray dresses are a winning choice for any bridal party. From classic chiffon gowns in charcoal to slinky slip dresses in sterling silver, gray is an appropriate color for every season and is universally flattering on every skin tone.

For beach weddings, bridal party outfits in soft gray, with light blue undertones, look stunning set against a seaside backdrop and complement boho-inspired wedding dresses. Opting for a formal winter wedding? Dresses in deeper hues like sterling silver and pewter add dimension to any wintery palette. And when it comes to pulling off mismatched dresses, you can't go wrong with introducing gray floral prints and patterns into the mix.

From soft tones to dramatic hues, mini dresses to floor-length gowns, keep scrolling to discover 21 gorgeous gray dresses for every body type and budget.
