Springtime is all about romance and new beginnings. With so much natural magnificence abounding from blossoming blooms to fresh scents, seemingly every locale can transform into a secret garden, ready for a celebration. What better time to have a wedding? Better yet, what better time to dress for a wedding?

From ethereal chiffon to delicately structured lace to goddess-like simplicity, springtime unfolds with a plethora of picture-perfect wedding dress options. Draw inspiration from all that gorgeous garden foliage by experimenting with color for your own gown. From petal pinks, light lavenders, and even the slightest shades of gray, spring wedding fashion can showcase softness and femininity. But mild temperatures also lend themselves to serving some bold, fashion-forward looks from daring prints to bold hues to architectural appliqués. And if you're longing to show some leg after the longest winter ever, now's your chance to wear something short, flirty, and perfect for late-night dancing on the grass—barefoot and dewy, of course.

Be mindful of your venue's environment when considering wedding dress lengths and fabrics. If your celebration takes place on grass, for example, your floor-length gown and trailing train will be getting quite dirty and could possible snag.

Without further ado, here's our handpicked list of 35 garden-ready dresses perfect for any floral-filled fête. Let the spring wedding fever begin!
