How to dress for a spring wedding

  • First check out the formality of the event, often daytime weddings are more formal in the evening, as inside weddings are usually more formal than outside weddings. The location can also give you some clues.
  • At a spring wedding you're always good wearing a cocktail gown. For a less formal event a skirt and a charming blouse is also an option. For a more formal wedding go for cocktail in a dressier fabric like silk or satin.
  • Use seasonal colors like neutrals and pastels, Never wear all white or all black, a floral dress is also a perfect option for a spring wedding.
  • Wear attire that shows your body shape at it's best.
  • Combine your party dress with a pair of classy feminine pumps. As an accessorie you can carry a small bag, this looks dressier than a large one and is therefore more appropriate for a wedding. If your attire is in a neutral color you can brighten your look up with a bright colored bag or bright colored shoes. Otherwise, choose a color that matches with the color of your attire.
  • Wear a waterproof trench coat over your outfit when part of the reception or ceremony takes place outside. Also take an umbrella to protect your hairdo from spring showers. If you wear stockings, make sure to bring a spare one with you in your bag just in case.
  • Keep your jewelry simple and elegant. Go for (real-looking) silver, gold, diamonds or pearls. Gemstone details are also cute for a spring wedding. Wear larger earrings with a bracelet or wear a bracelet with a necklace and smaller or no earrings. A necklace shouldn't compete with the neckline of your gown.
  • Go for a (waterproof) sweet and soft natural makeup look and put your hair in a festive updo.
  • If you still have any doubts just call the bride and groom and they will be more than happy to provide you with information.
