Spring is upon us and it’s as if the whole world is waking up! It’s likely that you find yourself adding fresh flowers to your cart, looking up new seasonal recipes, and a calendar full of spring weddings. If you’re wondering where to find the perfect wedding guest dresses for spring, we’ve got you covered. A spring wedding calls for softer hues (hello, lilac and mint), floral patterns, feminine silhouettes, and romantic details. But we’re also seeing trends in bold prints, polka dots, and bright colors—it’s time to step out and we’re here for it!
We’ve put together a guide full of wedding guest dresses for spring to get the party started! From outdoor weddings to glam events, there’s something here for everyone. Can we start you a room?
Plus Size Wedding Guest Dresses For Spring
We included plus-size wedding guest dresses for spring throughout the entire list, but allow us to just highlight a few of our favorites right here at the start! These dresses are exclusively plus size, starting at 14 or 1X depending on the retailer.
GWS Tip! One hallmark of a spring dress is the color. Look for light, bright colors that celebrate the season. We’re loving mints and purples for something a little more fashion-forward or pinks and yellows for that classic spring look.
This beautiful dress comes in seven really great colors to get you through spring and summer. We love this mauve but the sage and periwinkle are SO good.
A column dress that is oh-so-sexy and chic. It also comes in black!
Just dying for those bishop sleeves over here! Love the loose silhouette and movement of this one.
We’re seeing polka dots everywhere for spring and LOVING this playful, chic trend. Especially pairing with the puff sleeve—such a fun look for a spring wedding!
This flowy dress features pockets and a bit of stretch in the fabric for a comfortable and flattering fit.
The bold pattern on this dress is the perfect bridge from winter to spring. With the flared skirt, it’s super feminine and fun.
Call it obvious, but we can’t help but turn to floral patterns when it comes to choosing a dress for a garden spring wedding. Because an outdoor wedding is generally during the day and a little more relaxed, these dresses are made for catching that lovely spring breeze. They can easily transition from day to night, but you’ll find this collection just a bit more loose and easy before we dive into spring cocktail dresses!
GWS Tip! Wondering about the length? Dresses for spring weddings can run the gambit from mini to maxi. If you go with maxi, make sure it’s a light fabric and a sleeveless or flutter-sleeve top. Number one rule: the dress should make you feel more like you.
The back of this dress has THE most fun cutout details and tie straps. And the floral print is just perfect for spring!
This dress has everything! The floral print, the cutout on the sides and back, the front slit, the flowy sleeve—you’ll be a vision in this one!
The tiny floral print on this dress…such good colors, right? Loving the square neck on this one, too.

This one is a bit of a splurge but it’s one of our favorite designers and you’re destined to get a lot of wear out of it!
The deep-V isn’t for everyone, but this dress does it so stylishly! You can also unbutton the skirt for a higher slit.
This dress comes in several prints and colors (and extended sizes, too) but we can’t help but love a blush for spring.
Cocktail Attire Wedding Guest Dresses for Spring
Cocktail attire for spring translates to dresses that take it up a notch in the chic factor. Where you might be able to style a garden wedding dress in a way that’s also suited for a Saturday farmer’s market run, cocktail dresses are just a bit fancier. However, we wouldn’t put it past you to find ways to wear these again and again!
GWS Tip! Speaking of re-wear, we’re all about making the dresses in our closets last. When you shopping for a wedding guest dress, think ahead. Is there another event you’d wear it to? Is the dress capable of styling up AND down?
This dress is just SO stylish, so chic, and so French. Adore.
