From sophisticated city weddings to casual countryside ceremonies, it can be challenging to figure out what to wear to a wedding, as a guest, especially while keeping the changing seasons and trends in mind. There are so many factors that go into picking a style, but ultimately you want a gown that makes you feel confident, stylish and fits well.

We loved gathering our top picks for each season for you. Match the dress of your choice to the time, location and formality of the wedding you will be attending! From a black-tie formal gathering to a laid-back country wedding, we have a variety of full-length, midis and mini dresses for you to choose from.

White and Purple Woodlands Winter Wedding

A white winter wedding need not be devoid of color. Quite the contrary. A clean, wintry white background is the perfect foundation for a warming burst of color. Lynsey and Taylor’s December wedding celebration at The Woodlands Resort & Conference Center is a spectacular example. Against a backdrop of snow white, including white table linens, chair covers and room draping, Darryl & Co. brought in subtle touches of purple and silver, along with plenty of icy crystal, glass and rhinestone sparkle, creating an effect that was at once coolly chic and warmly inviting. Purple and pink color-wash lighting, snowflake gobos, and, of course, flickering candlelight, completed the picture, providing Lynsey, Taylor and their 225 delighted guests a winter wonderland in which to eat, drink and dance the night away. And boy, did they. Big thanks to Jaylene DeBenedictis of Sacred Image Photography for her beautiful photos of one of the loveliest winter weddings we’ve had the privilege of featuring. Enjoy!
