Social distancing restrictions rare are finally starting to lift. As you ease back into attending weddings to celebrate your nearest-and-dearest, we expect even gathering will need a top-notch look, and with spring right around the corner, there couldn't be a better time.
Step into spring—and every wedding celebration— in style with an outfit that looks like a million bucks. From two-piece sets to jumpsuits, gone are the days you had to solely rely on spring wedding guest dresses to fit the bill. In fact, we found eight versatile spring wedding guest outfits suitable for every body type, aesthetic, and, yes, budget.
1. A delicate floral dress from a sustainable brand
Reformation is known for its lovely sustainable clothing, and the Nikita Dress is the perfect choice for a dressy spring wedding. The dress comes in seven different fabrics, including several pretty floral prints, and it features a fitted bodice and waist with a ruffle-edged neckline and trumpet skirt. Its simple straps are adjustable for the perfect fit, and you can feel good knowing that four gallons of water and eight pounds of carbon dioxide were saved during the manufacturing process.
2. A bright, bohemian maxi dress
Reviewers can’t get enough of this boho-inspired dress, and it’s easy to see why! The flowing maxi skirt is incredibly flattering, and the dress comes in a variety of eye-catching colors like peach and watermelon. The crochet lace insets, tiered skirt, and drawstring waist give this dress a distinctly bohemian flair, and it would be just right for a springtime garden wedding. Plus, many people say it works wonderfully as a maternity dress, as well.
3. An elegant jumpsuit that comes in vibrant hues
Not in the mood for a dress? This sleek jumpsuit is a great alternative for a more dressy event, as it’s easy to dress up with a pair of heels and some jewelry. It comes in a variety of bold colors, including hot pink, red, and cobalt blue, and it has a high halter neck with a twisted detail, as well as a keyhole opening in the back. There are pockets on either side where you can stash your phone for impromptu wedding selfies, and the polyester-spandex blend doesn’t wrinkle too much, making it ideal for traveling.
3. This fun blouse paired with slacks
You’ll be comfortable and ready to party in this eye-catching blouse, which is extra-long and has an oversized tie around its middle. The lemon-yellow hue is bright and cheery for spring, and it will complement a pair of simple black slacks, such as the Audrey Ankle Pant. You can round out your look with a bold-colored shoe and blazer if it’s cold, and as an added bonus, the pieces can also do double duty in your work wardrobe.

4. A sexy two-piece set that shows a little skin
Not only is this two-piece dress sultry, but it’s also quite comfortable thanks to its stretchy knit fabric! The Jonny is made up of a wrap top that ties around your waist and a matching skirt with buttons up the side. It comes in a pretty shade of light green that’s seasonal for a spring event, and you can easily cover it up with a long cardigan or jacket if you think you’ll be cold.
5. A sweet lace dress that comes in pretty pastel shades
This lacy dress gets rave reviews from buyers, who say it’s incredibly flattering and ideal for weddings. The Love Poem Mini Dress has a high hem that shows off your legs, but it’s not so short that you risk a wardrobe malfunction on the dance floor. The dress comes in a rainbow of pretty colors, including trendy shades of yellow and blush pink, and it’s covered in a flowery lace pattern that’s perfect for spring.
6. A super-flattering maxi dress that comes in lots of colors
I had to include this dress because it’s hands-down one of my favorite options for weddings. Yes, I own it, and I promise that it’s incredibly flattering and comfortable. You can choose from a dozen colors, all of which feature a lace top with straps that crisscross in the back. The bottom of the dress is light and airy with a tiered hem, and if you prefer a shorter dress, Free People has a cropped version, as well.
7. A trendy backless jumpsuit
Backless designs are all the rage this season, and this cute jumpsuit will let you get in on the trend. The Thinking Out Loud Jumpsuit is available in six colors, and it features a V-neck with straps that cross in the back. The garment is made from a mid-weight knit fabric that’s ideal for transitional weather, and reviewers can’t say enough good things about its sexy yet elegant appeal.
8. Oh, and don’t forget your mask!
While we all want to leave the days of social distancing behind us, it’s still important to practice safe gatherings, especially in large groups! Luckily, Old Navy has an amazing collection of comfortable cotton face masks in dozens of patterns, allowing you to find one that matches your outfit. The pleated masks have three layers of cotton fabric and adjustable ear straps, and you can’t beat the value for a pack of five.
