Dress ℅ Hutch (Sold Out, Similar Here)

Hi! Apologies for the random, month-long blog hiatus. I missed writing here. I’ve been dealing with some health issues, but have been working on getting them resolved, so I can stop neglecting the website I launched nearly 12 years ago. I’m hoping that April will be a month of consistency, and I thank you for sticking around and reading!

I’m not going to lie: I have been invited to a total of zero weddings this spring. Thankful for my wallet, but sad for my social life.

But – wedding season is upon us, and I know a lot of you have friends who are getting hitched this year. If you’re looking for the perfect spring wedding guest outfit, I’ve got some ideas for you!

Dress: ℅ Hutch (Sold Out, but love this option!)

One brand that I’ve been loving for special occasion dresses is Hutch. I love how fun, colorful and flattering their dresses are — I own a few of them, and I always feel like a million bucks in them. I find them to run pretty true to size or sometimes a tad large, so I’d either go with your normal size or size down if in-between sizes. For this dress with the corset style, I opted for my true size, but I often have to go down a size in their other cuts without corsets or defined bustlines.

I’ve found so many fun, playful styles that would work well for weddings this year, and I’ve rounded up some of my favorites in this collage below!

When planning your spring wedding guest outfit, you’ll want to make sure you find something both stylish and appropriate for the occasion. A breezy flowy dress in cheerful pastels is an easy way to channel the season’s natural flair. Floral patterns are also perfect for any outdoor garden weddings. Fitted midi dresses with vivid hues will look great for any semi-formal daytime ceremony.

For a more formal affair, opt for a stylish yet timeless gown in a sleek silhouette. I adore this Dress the Population gown – it comes in multiple colors, and will definitely turn heads. If dresses aren’t your thing, a tailored blazer and slim trousers are also options that won’t make you look out of place. Don’t forget to add the right accessories to top off your look – a pair of delicate drop earrings or a clutch in an eye-catching color will do the trick. 

Don’t be afraid to experiment with colors and textures. If you’re looking for something a bit daring, try a structured dress with puff sleeves or something in a bold color. Anything but white!

For a more relaxed look, choose lightweight materials like chiffon or linen – they’ll make you look chic and stylish, while still keeping you cool in the spring heat. 

No matter what you choose to wear, it’s important to remember that with spring wedding guest outfits, it’s all about having fun. So don’t be afraid to step out of your comfort zone and experiment with colors and textures – you never know what look will make you feel like the best version of yourself!
