Depending on the exact location, outdoor spring weddings can be a little chilly. So reach for a dress with sleeves, like Malene Birger’s pleated design, or one that looks lovely with a shawl, like Zimmermann’s halter dress.

Bring some more romance to the park with a lace, floral, or ruffled dress from designers like La Double J and Maygel Coronel.

This is your moment to go all out. Layers of tulle, sequins, and draping make an elevated statement, and designers like Prada and Self-Portrait show us how it’s done.

Lightweight fabrics like that on Jason Wu’s cotton dress or Jacquemus’s linen design are perfect for those shore-side ceremonies.

Elevated comfort is the name of the game here. Slip on an easygoing dress with a polished finish, like Blaze Milano’s blazer dress or Tory Burch’s tunic.

Prepare to say “cheers” to the new couple in a fun dress that makes a glamorous statement. Metallics and jewel tones always work well for those memorable moments as you can see from Ganni’s silver mini and The Attico’s emerald frock.

You can never go wrong with a romantic bloom, be it a micro-floral frock from LoveShackFancy or a bouquet-covered Erdem dress. If prints aren’t your thing, a charming pleated dress—like Duncan’s—also fits the bill.
