Spring is almost here, and love is in the air. Get ready for a spring wedding with our top tips on what to wear to a spring wedding. Whether you're a mother of a bride, a bridesmaid or a guest, our expert advice will help you plan ahead of time so you look and feel your best on the big day.
What to Look for in a Spring Wedding Outfit?
If you're looking to attend a spring wedding, you want to make sure you look your best. Finding the perfect outfit, however, can be a bit of a challenge as spring weather can be unpredictable. When looking for a spring wedding outfit, it’s important to match your style to the wedding venue.
Is it going to be an outdoor wedding? Don’t pull out the short skirts just yet. Although we are already starting to see temperatures increase, it’s easy to forget that spring can bring on rain and windy conditions. You want to make sure your outfit is suitable for any weather Mother Nature throws your way.
You don’t have to fully cover up or choose multiple layers. A lightweight dress is the best choice for a spring wedding guest dress. A spring wedding dress can also be paired with a wrap or cardigan that will keep you looking chic while still allowing you to easily take layers off or add them on if needed.
Another important factor to consider is the wedding party. If you are attending a wedding of an older bride or brides with more sophisticated taste, you may want to choose elegant wedding guest dresses, rather than a revealing dress. Dresses with velvet, silk dupion, or lace trim are perfect for a wedding with an older bride, as they are both beautiful and modest enough to not take the spotlight off the bride.
Our range of Grace dresses are elegant, flattering and offer that touch of 50’s glamour. This clever design flatters the bust, and has a netted underskirt to give just the right amount of curve to your waist and hips. The Grace silhouette comes in a range of prints, fabrics and colours to choose from.
One of our favourites is the Grace Dress in Green Silk Dupion – perfect for wedding guests!
What is the Best Spring Wedding Guest Outfit Colour?
Spring is all about fresh beginnings, so don’t be afraid to embrace the season's cheerful palette by wearing something colourful. Opt for lighter or brighter colours such as pastels, floral prints, and light neutrals. If you don’t want something too eye-catching, you can try light lavender or grey hues. Just avoid earthy earth colours such as green or brown, as these are usually more appropriate for autumn weddings.
The bridal party is also an important consideration here. You want to avoid matching the bride and bridesmaids (if you aren’t part of the bridal party), so try to find out what colour they plan on using ahead of time. The bride will likely wear a white dress, so maybe try to avoid white dresses.
Spring Lace Trims
Lace trims for a spring wedding outfit add a delicate touch of sophistication. Whether you’re looking for a long, formal gown or a short, sexy dress, add dresses with lace trim for a romantic appearance. If you are looking for something more daring and eye-catching, you can go for lace pieces with bright colours or sheer details.
If you want to keep your look conservative yet stylish, choose subtle hues and classic cuts such as our black lace and velvet luxe dress.
Don't Forget to Accessorise
Complete your spring wedding outfit with the perfect pair of shoes and accessories to complete your wedding look. As it gets colder, it’s best to choose closed heels or wedges, depending on your style and comfort level. Accessorise with light, airy materials such as hats and fascinators. A stylish headband can make your outfit pop while keeping your hair looking great during the spring's windy weather.
When you are relaxing into the wedding celebrations, you want to have considered headwear that is easy to remove without ruining your hair. Our “Hatinator” saucer hat is the perfect choice!
You can also add a decorative scarf or statement jewellery to complete your look without too much bulk.
