Spring marks the beginning of a fresh and exciting wedding season (we’re certain your calendar is filling up with weekend nuptials pretty much from now through September). As a guest, dressing for a spring wedding is thrilling—it’s the dawn of a new shopping season with the freshest trends ripe for the picking. It’s the perfect time to experiment with a new look and what better piece to do so with than a gorgeous wedding-guest dress?

This spring, romanticism is a huge trend—the look is all about ultra-feminine pieces made of light, ethereal fabrics; silhouettes come either voluminous with prim necklines, puffed shoulders, billowing sleeves, cascading ruffles, and tiered skirts, or, more fitted with a focus on the waist with cinched details like corseting, tie-waists, and belts. Basically, the season was made for weddings, and as a guest, you have lots of options to choose from in the dress department.

Being spring, florals are a natural print to look to with a dress. Blooms this season are given a fashion-forward spin, coming in sweet micro-prints and splashy colors. The most darling options come nipped in at the waist or with off-the-shoulder details that prove flattering for your neckline and arms. Bolder renditions are vivid in color (everything from yellow, hot pink, and, purple to orange, indigo, and red) often bohemian in style or with a 60s-style retro appeal.

If you’re into solid colors, jaunty shades and pretty pastels are both big for the season either pleated, in asymmetric silhouettes, or in crafted from fluid satin to drape across your body just so. If sorbet shades are more appealing, lilac, yellow, and mint are prominent while brighter, more pigmented hues like marigold and cobalt read happy-go-lucky. You’ll undoubtedly stand out in any of these colors!

With such versatile and flattering trends on the docket, no matter what you choose, you’re guaranteed to get plenty of wear out of a spring wedding-guest dress. And while repeat wears make the case for investing in a pricier style, it’s all the more rewarding when you can find a gorgeous dress that’s on-trend and incredibly affordable—we’re talking less than $150!
