Spring Wedding Guest Attire: 4 Outfit Ideas for Outdoor Weddings

Received an invite for a springtime wedding? Lucky you! It’s a wonderful time of year for events and occasions: the days are getting longer, the air feels cool and fresh, and there’s a feeling of energy and renewal in the air—all of which make it an excellent season for nuptials. Here’s what to wear to an outdoor spring wedding.


Not sure what to wear to an outdoor spring wedding? As a guest, spring is the easiest time of year to pick a piece that’s suitable for a wedding. Not only are there more colors and prints to choose from—florals, linen and lightweight cottons are suddenly weather- and season-appropriate fabrics and motifs once again—it also feels like you have more options when it comes to embellishment and accessories. That said, appropriate spring outdoor wedding guest attire does largely depend on the occasion and the venue.

What to Wear to a Cold Outdoor Spring Wedding

If it seems that Punxsutawney Phil guessed right and that spring isn’t coming early this year—or at least, not as early as the wedding you’re attending—be prepared with layers. Wear tights and a camisole at minimum, and if it’s really chilly outside, opt for pieces such as Spanx or thermals, a long-sleeved turtleneck bodysuit, and a top layer such as a cashmere stole, wool, or this Faux Fur Cape in Black.

Our Signature Blouson Jumpsuit in Black is an excellent option that you can also dress up with heels and a slick of red lipstick.

What to Wear to a Spring Outdoor Beach Wedding
