A Guide For Alternative Ways To Dress For A Wedding

No more dresses.

Getting ready for spring means getting ready for wedding season.

It's no surprise that this time of year is so popular for weddings: the smell of blossoming flowers wafts through the air, the not-too-hot weather is great for all venues – plus, it means the newlyweds can go on a glamorous, sun-soaked honeymoon, afterwards. But an RSVP is not only confirmation of your attendance, it means you need for a new wedding outfit. While it would be scandalous to outshine the bride, you'll still want to stand out as one of the best-dressed guests. 

Obviously, different types of weddings require different types of clothing to suit the setting: a floaty maxi gown is the go-to for a beach, but you'll need something more substantial if you find yourself at a reception in the mountains. We've picked four unique venues for a wedding that you might be invited to this spring and a selection of alternative outfits to wear to them. From a city rooftop to a romantic garden, we've got you covered. Say no more to generic dresses and yes please to pantsuits and separates. 

Switch in those floral prints for flamingos and block colors; take a risk and rock a head-to-toe white look – after all, who gets married in white anymore? You'll be just as likely to see a bride walking down the aisle in blush pink.
