The Ultimate Guide to Wearing Wedding Guest Attire in Spring

Now is the time to trade in your long-sleeved dresses and winter coats for backless or midi floral dresses with a flowy style. Dressing appropriately for a wedding is a way to show respect for the bride and groom, and your outfit should always be modest, conservative, and suitable for the occasion. There are some unwritten rules that we can follow to ensure we feel comfortable in all social settings.

Below, we will discuss the trends for what to wear to a spring wedding in 2023. To make things easier for you, we have compiled the ultimate guide on how to dress and highlighted chic spring dresses suitable for wedding guests of every style and budget.

1. Opt for Florals

From trendy blouses to elegant maxi dresses, there is a wide range of floral silhouettes to choose from this season. When selecting your spring wedding guest attire, opt for light, breathable fabrics, and pay attention to the color palette and patterns.

2. Avoid White or Light Colors

When it comes to color palettes, remember not to wear white unless it is specified in the dress code. Even pale or pastel colors like light blues, greens, yellows, and grays can appear too light in photos. It’s okay to have a simple design with a touch of white, but ensure that a bolder color dominates the outfit.

3. Follow the Dress Code (If Provided)

If the invitation indicates a casual event with phrases like ‘join us for the best day ever,’ it suggests a less formal setting. Even with a specified dress code, opt for formal attire and stick to neutral tones for the wedding.

4. Avoid Overly Revealing Outfits

It is essential not to wear anything too sexy or see-through, even if it is intentional. Consider your audience and ensure that revealing clothing or excessive cleavage is not the focal point of your outfit. If you wish to highlight a feature, consider bold makeup or wedding-themed nail art instead.
