When I saw this dress online, it gave me all the spring feelings. Navy, floral, peplum hem, just enough slit… I think this would be such a great dress to wear to a spring wedding.

This is a question I get from you guys a lot – what to wear to weddings.  I think most of us know the ultimate rules are…

1) No white, cream or anything remotely resembling white. This applies to wedding parties as well (engagement parties, showers, bachelorette parties, etc.).  This is the bride’s time to wear white! However… I think silver or gold is always a good idea.

2) Nothing too showy.  Save that for date night, girls night or the bachelorette party. Dads and grandfathers are probably going to be there… you don’t want to be self-conscious that you’re showing off more than Uncle Carl needs to see.

Not to worry – that still leaves us so many options! If the ceremony and/or reception is outdoors, a maxi dress is a fun option. I’m always a fan of a formal jumpsuit or pantsuit, and of course a cocktail dress is fool-proof.

I’m sharing some of my favorite spring wedding picks, along with this dress, at the bottom of the post. Can’t wait to hear what you think!

  1. Love this, Kathleen! Any chance you could recommend some options for a black tie wedding? I’ve always struggled with this dress code, specifically in the summer time!
