When it comes to getting hitched, it’s usually the wedding dress that gets all the attention but what about the other (in our opinion) important attire: dresses for weddings?

Dresses For Weddings:Beautiful Outfits For Guests

Dresses For Weddings:Beautiful Outfits For Guests

As a wedding guest, the focus may not be all about you but it’s still important to figure out what kind of outfit is appropriate to wear.

For example, if the wedding is black tie, then you’re going to want to hit up an evening gown. If it’s semi-formal, go for a fun dress that’s a bit more dressed up than if you were to go to a party. Depending on what season the wedding is, you’re going to want to choose your dress according to how cold or hot it is.

Then there is the location: is it a hotel or a beach? A backyard or a convention centre?

It’s these kind of questions that, when answered, will help wedding guests find the perfect dress.

To help you on your search, we’ve picked our 25 favourite dresses that are appropriate for all kinds of weddings. Good luck dress hunting!

Just yesterday we celebrated the first wedding Anniversary of dear Prince William & Kate. Thus, I thought it was only fitting to share photos of another stunning wedding where the bride, model Caroline Trentini wore a dress “quite” similar to Kate’s. Since Caroline was 15 years old she had dreamed that designer, Olivier Theyskens would design her wedding gown. Oliver created the the gorgeous gown perfectly suited for both the bride and her Brazilian wedding with a balance of strength and sweetness using satin and lace.

What I also adored was the sassy little white open-backed leather dress Caroline changed into for the reception, which was also designed by Theyskens. The darling dress was paired utterly perfectly with her Valentino flats. What a chic bride!

Vera Wang knows how to surprise her fans, just look at this monochrome black and white spring-summer 2014 bridal collection’s runway show. She offers minimalist looks, including ivory silk crepe mermaid gowns accessorized with black elbow length gloves, strapless white column dresses, avant-garde Chantilly lace mermaid gowns with netted high-neck tops, ivory sleeveless V-neck silk crepe soft mermaid gowns with scoop back accents. New collection features bold black and white gowns that look modern and edgy. I personally felt in love with light ivory strapless silk crepe mermaid dress with sheer back detail and ivory and black strapless gown with silk ottoman bodice, hand draped silk faille skirt and contour band accent at neckline. I love the styling of white gowns with leather opera-length gloves, looks awesome.

Even while we’re fully immersed in the Fall ‘13 collections, the beginning of March has me thinking all things Spring. I’ve been eying the past Spring ‘13 runways and the brights they brought in the form of these flirty frocks from Versace, Matthew Williamson, Peter Som, and so many others. This is a different kind of LBD necessity, so forget the little black dress and allow me to introduce this season’s must-own little bright dress. The colorful options are limitless, as are cuts and silhouettes, though we recommend keeping it short and sweet to soak up the sun. Just shop my picks to get the look.
