The spring wedding season is officially here! Whether you’re attending one or two weddings or have pretty much every weekend dedicated to I do's, a beautiful pastel wedding guest dress is certainly on your shopping list. With a cheerful spirit in the air, the months of April and May are the perfect time to don a fun color after a winter of darker tones, and pastel hues are a sweet option for a wedding guest dress that feels romantic and on-theme with the season. Plus, a pastel wedding guest dress will feel picture perfect when you're snapping a picture to post to the wedding hashtag, whether you’re traveling for destination nuptials, keeping it local, or hitting a few stops around the U.S.
From pale pink to banana yellow to pistachio green, candy colors are synonymous with spring. This season, however, frothy tones are especially on-trend as big-name designers like Chanel, Miu Miu, Erdem, Kate Spade, and many more showed a range of sorbet shades on the runway in the form of flirty minis, dramatic gowns, and sleek separates. When translating this fashion-forward look to wedding guest attire, a gorgeous dress is the easiest way to do so whether you’re comfortable in a midi, maxi, or above-the-knee silhouette.
If you’re drawn to vintage-inspired silhouettes, a silky midi dress with an asymmetrical high neckline feels retro yet modern, while a simple slip touches on ‘90s nostalgia. If your taste skews feminine, then tiered skirts, ruffled hemlines, and wispy chiffon sleeves feel decidedly romantic. For a sleeker take, a minimal dress with clean lines is a standout in a cheerful pastel shade. Lace numbers in soft, pale tones feel classically romantic, but if you’re in the mood to go bolder, a spring dress with clever cut-outs, feather trim, or dramatic puffed sleeves will make a gorgeous statement. For the perfect look to usher in the season, look no further than a pastel floral prints dress.
