25 Spring Summer Wedding Guest Dresses

For a garden party wedding, this is the perfect little off the shoulder number. The pretty chiffon fabric is ideal for a wedding and I just adore the tiered skirt. Wear for a garden party wedding or a beach wedding for something easy and breezy.
ELLIATT Gwenyth Dress
If you have a black tie summer wedding to go to, I am loving this hot pink stunner. It’s the perfect fit for a black tie event. And you do’nt have to shy away from bold colors if it’s black tie. Trust me, you can do it! Just add a simple black clutch and strappy heel and you’re all set. Don’t forget to follow some of these black tie wedding dress code rules.
WAYF With Love Tiered Maxi Dress
Soft florals, ruffles and a good slit, this dress was meant for the summer wedding season Floral dresses are a go-to for summer events and these soft colors are flattering on just about everyone. I also love a maxi dress for a wedding as it feels instantly fancier. Add a straw clutch and a nude sandal to complete your look.
SABINA MUSAYEV Kolanta Dress
Lilac is such a hot color right now and this maxi wedding guest dress is simply beautiful. The long sleeve is great if you want to cover up your arms and the ruffle neckline just adds a nice feminine touch to the look.
BEC & BRIDGE Carrie Halter Maxi Dress
One of the more popular trends right now happening in dresses is the cut out. Showing a sliver of skin is such a fun thing to do for a summer outfit. This colorblock maxi dress with cut outs is a sexy little dress for a wedding. It’s got a slip dress vibe with the silky fabric but is a little more interesting with the pretty cut outs and knot in the front.
MISA Los Angeles Micaela Dress
This might be a personal favorite in this roundup. It’s a linen mini dress with a sweet little bow in the back. Cutouts on the side and a chevron faux leather stripe in the front. It is so unique, yet simple. I love this! Great for an afternoon wedding especially if it’s outside since linen is so breathable. Because of the leather, I think you can totally wear this to an evening wedding as well if it’s the dress code is cocktail attire.
ASOS DESIGN Blurred Blossom Print Maxi Dress
This is one of those maxi dresses you can dress up or down with ease. Style with a gladiator flat sandal for a beach wedding, or wear with a strappy heel for a cocktail party. The deep v-neck and puff sleeves balance the whole look. And the color, it’s just divine. At under $100, this is a great find and a dress you’ll wear more than once.
WAYF O.O.O Halter Dress
The whole, you can’t wear red to a wedding rule, I think is bull shit. Wear red. And you can definitely wear a red floral dress. The metal halter detail here is so fun and different. And the length of this tiered skirt is just perfection for day or night events. Bonus points, this dress is only $99.
LPA Aniston Dress
Slip dresses are a classic choice for an event, but adding in a fun color like this beautiful chartreuse, along with cutouts and a fun keyhole? You’ve got a really trendy and fun dress for a wedding. And the high slit is super sexy. Perfect for dancing the night away.
REFORMATION Juilette Dress
Reformation is a favorite place to shop for dresses for any and all occasions. But the Juliette dress is a classic that they almost always have in various prints and colors. It’s classic, fits beautifully, and is great for summer weddings. It’s a midi length fit with spaghetti straps and a nice high slit. PS check out my sizing guide here.

PETAL & PUP Zuri Midi Dress
When in doubt, go with florals for summer. This floral midi slip dress is great for any and all summer weddings. It also comes in a blue floral print with gold (which I think I actually like best!). The slight cowl neck adds a little something extra to this simple silhouette.
SAM EDELMAN Leaf Print Wrap Dress
A wrap dress is universally flattering in my opinion and this one is so fun for summer weddings. I love the leaf print and the color palette. So easy to wear and style with nude sandals. But if you want to go bold, this would be really pretty with matching strappy sandals in a pretty green color like these.
TED BAKER Gretia Leaf Print Long Sleeve Peplum Dress
A little something fun and different from Ted Baker. Pretty florals paired with tiers, ruffles and more. This mini dress is great for spring and summer weddings. Bring out the metallic floral print with a metallic heel and gold jewelry.
CINA A SEPT Faye Halterneck Dress
For a more classic color combination, black and white is always a good choice. I’m loving this pretty little dress with the unique halter style and straps. Wear with strappy black heels for a simple and classic look.
REFORMATION Nikita Dress
Another classic from Reformation, the Nikita dress. This fitted bodice and flowy skirt is the perfect combination. And I love the tie details of the straps. If you’re not into bold colors, or florals or pastels and want to stick with a classic black dress even in the spring and summer, this is the perfect dress. You’ll have it for years! And you can wear it all year round with the right layers and shoes for any wedding. And if you do want fun prints and colors, the Nikita comes in several colorways.
AMANDA UPRICHARD Riesling Dress
Simplicity is sometimes best. When you don’t know what to wear, a simple column style dress is easy and classic. This comes in a few colors and is just so stunning. Dress it up with beautiful statement earrings and a fun clutch.

Yes, Abercrombie is the PERFECT place to shop for a wedding guest dress for spring and summer. So many great pieces and this dramatic ruffle dress is just perfection.

This fun layered midi dress is so unique and stunning. This could possibly be worn to a black tie event because it is just so stunning and a great length. I love the lace detailing that shows a little more leg even though it’s a tea length dress.

A one shoulder look is perfect for spring and summer. Show off a little more of that sun kissed skin with this option. I love the ruching details and wrap detail of this dress. It’s going to be super flattering on. Comes in a few colors too!
REFORMATION Stassie Dress
As seen in today’s featured image at the top, this dress is truly perfect for a summer wedding. It comes in a few colors but I went for classic black. Can be dressed up with a high heel, or feel more summery with a wedge or espadrille for a summer afternoon wedding.

All the ruching for the ultimate flattering midi dress. This little A&F number comes in a few colors and prints to choose from. The ruching details are super flattering and the high slit is simply sexy!
