Spring Weddings: What to Wear as a Guest

Spring is on its way, and love is in the air! You may start to receive wedding invitations in the mail for nuptials during those beautiful spring months. As a wedding guest, you may ask yourself, "what should I wear?" That question always pops into my head when I have an event to attend, and I'm always excited to find a new dress or put together a look. A few tips to keep in mind when choosing your ensemble for a wedding:

1) Do not wear white or cream. Leave this look for the bride, and the bride only.

2) If you know what color the bridesmaids will be wearing, try to find a dress that is a different color. If you aren't sure what they will be wearing, look to the invitation for clues. What color is the invitation? If you receive an invitation with a lavender ribbon, it's safe to assume that lavender is one of the wedding colors.

3) Choose a look that you will be comfortable sitting, walking and dancing in. If you're uncomfortable, you won't be able to fully enjoy the evening.

4) This might be an obvious rule to follow, but choose a dress that isn't too revealing or flashy.

Here are a few looks that are perfect for a spring wedding. Each of these dresses would look just right with a pair of nude colored heels and simple accessories:
