We’re still in the thick of winter but before we know it, spring will arrive and with it will come the dawn of the warm-weather wedding season. If you’ve been on the receiving end of a save the date (or maybe even a few!) for the months of March, April, and May, then it’s time to start thinking about what to wear to a spring wedding. For a decidedly fresh and feminine look, a gorgeous dress is a fail-safe whether you’re attending nuptials in a church, at a vineyard, in a garden, and beyond.

Spring always ushers in the urge to don frothy shades, bright colors, and floral prints, especially when it comes to a wedding guest dress. After a season of darker tones, long sleeves, and layers upon layers, it can be exhilarating to slip into a wispy midi, cheerfully printed maxi, or ruffled mini, ideally with pedicure-baring heels. And as modern dress codes break tradition more and more, it’s only natural that the wedding circuit is a place where bending the rules is par for the course. For spring, that means showing a little more shoulder or leg (sans tights), experimenting with bolder hues (from magenta, yellow, and cobalt to the much-debated shades of red), considering splashier motifs (thanks to '80s and '90s nostalgia) and modern silhouettes like one-shoulder cuts and puffed sleeves, and even wearing black (though our preferred take is a by way of a moodier floral print in place of a standard LBD). Not only are the latest wedding guest trends becoming more exuberant, but they make it much more exciting to shop for a wedding guest dress that you will feel your best in and want to wear for numerous occasions after the main event.

Whether your taste is feminine, trend-driven, or entirely classic, we’ve rounded up 26 oh-so-pretty wedding guest dresses that are perfectly suited to spring. From lighter-weight long sleeves to up-to-the-minute silhouettes to vibrant shades of yellow, blue, and green, we’re certain you’ll find a dress you’ll love in the edit ahead.
