Spring Dress Guide: The Wedding Guest Dress

SimplyAudreeKate.SamKelly_DSC2084-1

Happy Saturday! It’s officially the weekend and I could not be happier to take a break for a couple of days. It’s the last day of my Spring Dress Guide and I’m sharing my look for spring weddings! There are a couple rules to dressing for a wedding that you should always follow, and then a couple rules that you can definitely break. First off, never wear white. It’s the bride’s day and out of respect to her, avoid wearing white, cream or anything too light and matchy. If you really want to wear a lighter color, go for a darker blush hue or somethingย pastel! Next, the rule that I say can be broken: Wearing black to a wedding. Last spring I attended a black-tie wedding and I think I was one of two women who didn’t wear black. It’s a rule that is dated and I think if the wedding you’re attending is a little more on the upscale end, then you’re in the clear to wear something a little fancier, like this White House Black Market floral midi.

As you have probably already picked up this week, I have a thing for midi dresses. I think they can be a flattering style on every body type, and I personally always feel more chic and dressed up in one. This WHBM dress is the perfect choice for a spring wedding! There is boning in the bodice for that extra defining of the waist, there are adjustable, removable straps and it’s fully lined. I fell in love with how soft the dress was and how easily it moved when I walked (or danced ๐Ÿ˜‰ ).

I also styled the look with platform oxfords from my “Casual Dress” look earlier this week as an after party look. When you want to break it down on the dance floor and don’t feel like wearing heels, have a fun pair of shoes in your bag or hotel room for a quick change. Also, let your hair down and have some fun! This look can also be replicated for a more laid-back wedding or rehearsal dinner. Have a great weekend and shop the pieces below! xo
