Is there anything more romantic than a Valentine’s Day wedding? The ultimate ode to love, a February 14th marriage calls for guest attire that’s in theme with all things lovey-dovey. That means a palette of red, pink, and even purple in certain cases, with pretty details like lace, ruffles, tulle, and sweet floral prints. As weddings timed to the lover’s holiday can range from casual to black tie, you must first figure out your guest aesthetic. And a flawless starting point is a feminine dress.

There’s no getting around the theme of romance for a Valentine’s day wedding, which can be tricky if your vibe isn’t exactly girly and sweet. But even for the most pared-back of aesthetics, there’s a fitting option for you. If you tend minimal, a simple satin slip in candy, soft pink, or rust is simply gorgeous while ruffles, bows, and flutter sleeves suit more feminine tastes. For the daring wedding guest, a low-back dress or style with peek-a-boo cutout detailing offers a bit of va-va-voom without feeling inappropriate. If you’re the pragmatic type, a textured option in luxe velvet or sequin-adorned knit feel decidedly romantic and warmer in frigid February weather. For a bohemian look, romantic floral prints are the way to go whether you’re for a casually-chic maxi dress, ladylike midi, or sweet mini—the latter being prime choice for petite frames. If you prefer something classic, a sleek, long-sleeve style in mid-length or above-the-knee silhouettes are perfect in red, pink, or purple. For those going for an ultra-romantic vibe, a figure-flattering lace dress is the epitome of romantic in every shade of red—details like peplum detailing, cascading ruffles, and frilled accents make for an especially sweet finish.

While a range of red, pink, purple, and printed dresses make for perfectly romantic Valentine’s Day wedding attire, these styles are also fitting for a Valentine’s day date whether you choose to celebrate before the wedding you’re attending or on a different day to keep the romantic theme alive—to make it extra special, don’t forget the lingerie!

Whether you’re shopping specifically for a Valentine’s Day wedding, a formal February occasion, or date night, ahead, scroll through 21 romantic options for every budget and style.
