5 Stunning Spring Dresses to Wear to a Wedding

Spring is the official start of the wedding season.

If you’re on the hunt for some spring dresses to wear to a wedding, you’ve come to the right place – we’ve got you covered!

There are so many great options to choose from, there’s no better time to shop for the perfect dress than right now.


As chilly temperatures slowly fade away, you can play around with different styles, bright colors, bold prints and of course floral prints too. 

From an outdoor wedding to a black-tie affair, we’re sharing our picks for the best wedding guest dresses for spring 2023. 

Starting with midi dresses like the one above, which are almost always a great option.

What are the Best Wedding Guest Outfit Colors?

Some of our favorite looks are yellow, pink, and green, but you can go with any light or pastel hues in the spring.

Try to avoid color palettes like deep oranges, rust, or dark blues.

Save the darker shades for a fall wedding. 

Formal Black-Tie Wedding Guest Dresses 

If the bride-to-be has selected a fancy hotel to say “I do” and requested white or black tie attire for her wedding guests, be sure you look the part. 

For a formal affair you can make a statement in classic silhouettes like an off-the-shoulder dress, a maxi dress with intricate detailing, or the ever-popular little black dress.

Formal weddings are also a fun opportunity to show off your cocktail attire.

For example, a retro-inspired dress is perfect for cocktail hour at a spring wedding. 

Chic jumpsuits with cut-outs and a wide leg-cut can also be a great option if dresses are not personal style.

Best Dresses for a Spring Destination Wedding 

Depending on the location, destination weddings tend to be more casual than traditional weddings.

For example, a wedding beach in the Bahamas won’t have a wedding dress code which requires an over-the-top dress and heels. 

Pastels, bright colors and romantic styles will be appropriate at any wedding, especially in a tropical destination. 

Daytime Spring Wedding Guest Dresses

The time of day can also make a difference in what you wear.

If the wedding is a semi-formal soirée or more casual wedding, go for a shorter style dress with jewel tones. 

Pastel colors are always welcome during the spring wedding season.

Go for a floral mini dress for a daytime garden wedding.

Beach Wedding Guest Dresses 

Consider dresses in breathable fabrics like cotton and linen if your friend or family member is getting hitched on the beach.

Most guests opt to wear short skirts to beach weddings.

Short styles are more stylish and practical for seaside nuptials. 

Pastel colors and vibrant prints work really well on the beach.

Try a bohemian-style tie waist dress for an elegant but still casual look.

You can also rock dreamy floral prints for a spring beach wedding!

Bold floral motifs will always work for an island destination wedding, regardless of the time of year.

Just remember that you might be barefoot, so keep that in mind when you choose your dress.

What Accessories Should You Wear to a Spring Wedding?

Now that you know what kind of dresses will look best, it’s time to finish the look.

If your look is minimal, dress it up with statement jewelry.

High necklines work well with a delicate pair of earrings, and long sleeves with a deep V neck look beautiful with a longer necklace. 

If you’re playing around with a bold color or floral patterns, opt for more subtle accessories—a piece of simple jewelry like a pair of studs or a bracelet works especially well. 

When it comes to more formal gowns, you can never go wrong with a great pair of heels and a pretty clutch.
