A Guide To The Perfect Spring Wedding Guest Attire

From left to right: Joelle of A Charming Occasion | Elisabeth of Bella | me | Lauren of Style Elixer

It's April. Guess what that means? It's wedding season! Let the peony bouquets and mason jar decorations pop up all over the map! Seriously though, I wish I could get married again. It's just a entirely different experience now that Pinterest exists. There is no excuse not to have a wedding worthy of an editorial feature!

Even though I won't be planning more weddings, I will be going to a few this year, and I always find myself standing in front of my closet, scratching my head, and thinking, "What in the Hades do I wear?"

That's where we step in! These lovely ladies above and I have joined forces to bring you our Spring Wedding collaboration! First up: wedding attire!

So I know you've seen this dress before, but I actually think it is the perfect dress for a day wedding. Adding a sassy print to a dress with some color is always a good bet for a wedding because it clearly separates you from any mishaps in being mistaken as a part of the bridal party (my biggest fear when going to a wedding... really, though. I try to find out their colors and everything so I am sure not to clash with their theme). I always try to stay away from white or anything too "bridal." Don't steal that bride's thunder! 

Go check out what Joelle, Elisabeth, and Lauren are wearing to their weddings this season!

And now that your brain is spinning with ideas to wear to all your weddings coming up this season, we have a shnazzy giveaway from Shabby Apple for you! Shabby Apple is an adorable women's vintage-inspired clothing store and they have the perfect dresses and skirts for this wedding season. Enter below to win $100 to their store, which will allow you to pick up one or two of your favorite pieces (I personally love this and this). Good luck!

My sister in law is getting married next month and I still have no idea what I'm going to be wearing! I'm not sure what I would choose if I won but I definately like the simplicity of http://www.shabbyapple.com/p-1994-ocean-plunge.aspx (that dress)

I've hit that age (almost 23, graduated from college last May) where all of a sudden I have to make plans around all these weddings! It's crazy. But the best thing is, I have so many excuses to dress up :) I love the Peony dress because it is so soft and feminine, but could definitely be restyled to wear to multiple occasions.

 
At April 13, 2013 at 10:33 AM , Blogger Tessa said...

While Shabby Apple has so many fabulous dresses, I am more a fan of wearing skirts to weddings to make sure i'm not mistaken for part of the bridal party. I really love the Merry-Go-Round or Calliope skirt. Fun spring colors and they will make you stand out! In a good way of course :)

 
At April 13, 2013 at 8:29 PM , Blogger Kaity said...

I love the bloom skirt! I feel like it would be a fun twist on an outfit for a summer wedding. :)
