Wedding Guest Dress Favorites for Spring

I’m standing up in a wedding this coming Saturday, so I’ve been on the hunt to find a new dress to wear to the rehearsal. Because attending weddings is good for at least having an excuse to buy a new dress, right? 😉 Well, this has resulted in me trying on A LOT of dresses. It’s kind of embarrassing how many I’ve ordered and returned … so, I figure I might as well write a blog post to round ’em all up! Here’s my wedding guest dress favorites for spring.

Wedding Guest Dress Favorites for Spring

one / two / three / four / five / six / seven / eight

Let’s start with what I already had in my closet and more than likely am wearing again for the rehearsal. This little midi number from Target can’t be beat in price and comfort. It comes in two prints – I have the floral version – and it has pockets. Need I say more? It’s one of the most flattering dresses that I’ve ever worn and think it will work for any body type.

I was happy to see that Nordstrom again released this dress, but in a couple new prints. I love how flowy and light the material is on this dress, and it’s really easy to dress up/down. My print is no longer available, but I’ve worn this dress both dressed up to a wedding and with a jean jacket and sandals out to dinner. It’s a good, versatile option!

Ann Taylor’s dress section just came to my attention – seriously, was I living under a rock? – and now I find myself perusing daily for new arrivals. This blue wrap dress was my second choice for a rehearsal dress (I got it half off during a sale). The silhouette was ridiculously flattering as are most wrap dresses, and the shade of blue reminded me of something Kate Middleton would wear. The flutter sleeves added a fun, feminine detail to keep it from looking too corporate.

Loft almost won me over with their sleeveless lace-detail dress, but the skirt was a little too flouncy for my preference. I wish Nordstrom would adjust the sizing on this dress from Bobeau because it’s SO comfortable, but I’m a size somewhere between small and medium that doesn’t exist. The pockets kind of oddly accentuated my hips, too so beware if you have some curves like me.

There’s a few wedding guest dress favorites for spring if you’re shopping around, too! Hopefully my thoughts and personal experiences can help you pick out a new dress for your own body type and preferences.

    I love dress #2 the best! I bet it looks great on you too! I struggle with dresses sometimes because of my body type and I feel like nothing ever fits me correctly. :-/ On a brighter note, I hope that you had a nice day today and that the weather was nice for you!! 🙂

      It was such a pretty dress! I ended up returning it because the sizing was a little off, but wrap dresses tend to be flattering. The color was prettier in person !

    I don’t think I’ve ever tried on a wrap dress- but they really are always so flattering and perfect for a wedding or rehearsal! That’s definitely one of the best excuses to buy a new dress:)!

    All the dresses are fine. But I love the 1st & 4th dress. It is matching with my personality.
