Spring wedding guest dresses 2022
Reformation, J.Crew, ASOS

It's no secret: 2022 is expected to be one of the biggest years for weddings in recent memories, with a record 2.5 million ceremonies set to take place in 2022 alone, according to The New York Times. Through all the delays and restrictions brought forth by the coronavirus pandemic, the idea of finally getting to tie the knot with your sweetheart is (understandably) an exciting prospect for so many couples.

But it's also no secret that attending weddings as a guest can sometimes prove to be a serious headache in itself. From scouting out the perfect wedding or bachelorette party gift to finding the most appropriate wedding guest attire for the bridal shower and actual ceremony, attending a wedding requires a different (and oftentimes, pricy) commitment.

Black Tie

With beads and lace covering this ashy tulle dress, you'll be the best dressed guest at any occasion — especially a summer or winter ceremony.


Be bold at any summer wedding or fancy occasion with this deep red, lace-trimmed gown from Rent the Runway.


Keep it formal, fresh and black tie attire-friendly in this Lace V-Neck Satin Sash Gown from the beloved dress designer, Adrianna Papell.



Be the "something blue" at any summer wedding with this glossy, side-ruched frock from Revolve.


Slip into something sweet and satin-centric, like this Bias Cut Maxi Tea Dress from ASOS that is as formal as it is ethereal.


The wrap dress style is alive and well (thankfully) with this Vila Recycled Midi Dress number, that's elevated by its baby blue color.


For some weddings, the fancier the better. And if you'll be attending any formal ceremonies, a fitted, almond-colored frock like this number will make you look both regal and on-trend. 


Reformation's elegant and strapless maxi dress will take your summer wedding dress game to a whole new level. Dancing is about to be a breeze!



This swanky dress is gorgeous for a summer wedding. With its floral print pattern and vibrant color palette, you can fit into any wedding dress code regardless of the season.


A short dress style is a great option for an outdoor wedding or any occasion when you might be looking for something a bit more casual. This slim fit, floral number boasts a wrap dress silhouette with a structured frame for added style.


Slip into something a little more fun for all of your wedding guest antics -- like this sunny, body-hugging maxi dress from J.Crew. It doesn't get more beach wedding-ready than this casual gown!


We're so here for all of the floral patterns and prints. Plus with this summer dress style's use of lace and flared sleeves, it's totally on-trend with the season's hottest fashion trends too.



It's one of the most basic rules of style: you can never go wrong with a little black dress. And this French Connection number is the perfect dress for any summer wedding ceremony, cocktail occasion or everything in between.


Pretty in pink! It doesn't get more bold and summery than this bow-adorned mini dress from Rent the Runway.
