We love weddings. Seeing our friends marry the person of their dreams warms our hearts. There's something so elegant about two people becoming one. Whether you'll be standing beside your bestie as a bridesmaid at the alter or watching from the crowd, weddings are a perfect excuse to go out and buy another dress and trust us, you can never have too many. I hand-picked several options for you that range from casual to formal. As a rule of thumb, if the wedding is in the evening, assume it is going to be more formal. And if the wedding is during the day, you can assume its less dressy unless the invitation states otherwise. Feel free to ask around or even people in the wedding party! You can also wear some of the dresses below to the rehearsal dinner. For a more detailed "cheat sheet," click here

Outfit Guidelines

There are several general rules when attending a wedding. For starters, never, EVER wear white. This is the bride's day to shine and you definitely do not want to upstage her. Don't be that girl. And when I say white--ivory, cream, and eggshell are included in this mix. You should also dress for the venue and pay attention to whether or not the invitation specifies what type of event it is (formal, black tie, semi-casual, etc.) And again, when in doubt, ASK! No one is going to be offended. They would be more offended if you showed up completely underdressed. Click here to read this article by Glamour on 15 Wedding Guests DOs and DONTs. 

WHAT TO WEAR : Page 6 Style 

Below, we picked 4 dresses that we think would look absolutely stunning for a wedding. We also tried to pick pieces that you would be able to wear again. Nothing is worse than having to buy a dress that you will never, ever be able to wear again. So without further ado, check out our picks below :) 

 Blue Suede Dress

Our sassy and classy 'Blue Suede Dress' would be the perfect piece to wear to an evening wedding. It is our idea of the perfect cocktail dress for someone who is young because it does not fit the traditional 'cocktail' look. This little number by She + Sky is absolutely gorgeous. It features a v-neck and strappy criss cross back. Pleats featured just below the high waistline. Pair this simple, elegant beauty with your favorite heels and call it the perfect night! 

Lucky in Love Swing Dress

How fitting is our 'Lucky in Love' swing dress for a wedding? This would be perfect for a daytime event and it could even transition into an evening affair! We absolutely love the timeless silhouette of this beauty. You can definitely dress this piece up or down, depending on your jewelry and shoes. And what's even better its that you can definitely wear this dress time and time again, long after your favorite people say 'I Do.' 

Walking on Sunshine Dress

Something about the sunshine makes us vibrantly content so it is fitting that this happy dress attends a wedding! We love the fitted silhouette of this piece, don't you? The bands across the v-neck and the band around the waist definitely add sophistication and class. We recommend choosing some fun jewelry, bracelet and maybe even a ring as far as accessories go. Pumps or even some dressier wedges would be the perfect finishing touch. 

Navy Blue Floral Dress

The last dress we chose to feature was our fun and flirty 'Flower Medley Party Dress.' This little number is absolutely perfect for a wedding any time of the day. It is important to remember though that your shoes and accessories will determine how dressy the piece is so chose wisely! We think this beauty is simply darling, don't you? 

Whether you're attending a wedding for one of your dearest friends or going as a plus one, it is important to always look your best. We hope that these guidelines and outfit suggestions help ease some of that worry.
