Weddings are always a fun excuse to get all dolled up and show off your favorite dress. No matter what your taste or style, we have plenty of options to choose from. Here are some ideas to keep your wedding attire fresh and hot.

1. Bold, Contrasting Colors


We love the pop of blue earrings that are offset by this bright fuchsia dress. This full coverage frock is conservative enough for any occasion, including a traditional wedding at a church.

2. Cosmopolitan Affair


For a more worldly look, check out this hot number with a high slit. Only for the bravest among us, show off those gams and look like a knock-out. You might just wind up catching the bouquet and being the next one to get hitched!

3. Destination Wedding


Great for a destination wedding where you can show off a little skin on the beach, this dress accentuates the neckline with a sweetheart cut. We love the cute bow detail above a peek-a-boo midriff cutout.

4. Beautiful Draping


This bright orange-red dress is a gorgeous option for those who don't want to show any skin, but still want to look foxy. This dress hangs perfectly on your curves but still leaves plenty to the imagination.

5. Radiant Magenta


Marylin Monroe would approve of this gorgeous spaghetti strap dress in a radiant magenta color with a full, tea-length skirt. We love how this woman's dress actually matches the flowers, but you don't need to go to such lengths when picking a color.

6. Sunshine in the Rain


Who needs sunshine on their wedding day when friends show up and slay in these sunshine yellow and orange dresses? We love the creative, fabulous necklines, the comfortable lengths, and the metallic shoes. Death to old-school, matchy dyed fabric shoes, BTW.

7. Pretty in Pink

Is it a dress or a huge marshmallow I'm wearing? ?? #weddingattire #vivetta

If you don't want to be body conscious at all while you're eating, drinking and dancing the day and night away, then opt for a full and flowy overlay. This dress has a nude underpinning for flare and style.

8. Floral Jumpsuit


Not into dresses, but still want to look dressy? Sometimes a pantsuit is too business-like to pass as wedding attire. Consider a jumpsuit as a dress substitute. This feminine floral jumpsuit ticks all the boxes: feminine, fun, and comfortable.

From bold colors to feminine florals, these eight options are sure to give you some ideas of styles you might want to wear to attend that summer wedding that's right around the corner. Let's raise a glass to toast to eternal love, and to looking great while celebrating it.
