If you’re like some of my friends, you have a number of weddings to attend this year.  While the obvious thing to wear to a spring wedding is a floral dress, I wanted to provide outfit suggestions that would inspire you to step outside the floral box.  Be inspired by other trends this season when it comes to selecting your wedding attire. Also, the pieces selected to wear to a wedding should be items you can wear for other occasions like church, work or brunch.

The first look is inspired by one of this season’s hottest trends: pastels. Mix feminine details like pastel and lace to really make a statement, without overshadowing the bride of course. You can stick to neutral accessories or have fun by mixing pastels with bold colors like the mint and coral combination shown below. Look for sheath dresses that define your waist; this will help create an hourglass shape.

The second dress is one I found by accident. Originally, I was going to feature a floral dress (before deciding to make this post about not wearing floral dresses), but came across this paisley print instead and I love it because the print is so unexpected.  If you want to wear a printed dress, look for prints other than floral like paisley, geometric, stripes or polka dots. If you do select a bold printed dress like the one below from Lord & Taylor, choose neutral accessories to avoid clashing with the dress; neutral accessories will allow the dress to take center stage. Depending on the location of the wedding, it may be too cool to have your arms exposed. Carry a light cardigan in case it gets chilly.

The final look is for the woman who doesn’t want to wear a dress. Yes, contrary to popular belief, you can wear a skirt to a day wedding. This look is great for the woman who may be a little bigger on bottom. Pair an a-line midi skirt with a floral blouse (if you want, you can roll of the sleeves to create a 3/4 length sleeve). Reminder: a-line skirts and dresses are the most flattering silhouettes. This a-line skirt will slim the curves of a woman who is bigger on bottom. It will also create curves for those that have a boyish frame. Because the skirt is a neutral and the blouse is printed, this look brings the attention to the top half of the body. Complete the look with grey and silver accessories.


After viewing these outfits, are you feeling inspired to put together a refreshing look for the next spring wedding you attend?
