Spring is here, and with it comes a slew of weddings to attend. And while our wallets may not love the costs associated with all those invites, we love any reason to celebrate (and shop for pretty new dresses).

3 Tips for Choosing the Perfect Wedding Guest Dress

1. Consider Trends (But Don't Feel Beholden to Them)

When it comes to trending dresses for spring 2022, we’re unsurprisingly seeing a ton of bright colors and lots of cut-out details. Still, while it’s fun to jump on trends, it never hurts to opt for a timeless pick like a classic LBD. A great, low-commitment way to try out a trend is by opting for a fun shoe, bag or necklace instead of a dress.

2. Steer Clear of Lengths and Fits You Tend to Not Like (No Matter How Hard You Try)

OK, this sounds self-explanatory, but if you hate high neck dresses on yourself, don’t buy a high neck dress. Just because your favorite influencer looked incredible in the high neck mini dress she wore for her sister’s wedding doesn’t mean you have to get it too.

3. Sometimes, a Practical Choice is the Best Choice

Since you’ll probably wear this dress more than once, you want to grab something that’s relatively comfortable (think wrap dresses or softer fabrics). You’ll also want to gravitate toward shoes that won’t kill your feet before the reception even starts, like a black or nude strappy block heel.

Keeping these tips in mind, check out 17 of the best spring wedding guest dress below.
