The spring wedding you RSVP’d yes to is just around the corner—meaning it’s time to find the perfect dress to wear. The best spring wedding guest dresses are brightly-colored, elegant, packable, and, ideally, rewearable. When shopping for the right style, you’ll want to consider how formal the ceremony is and the weather in your destination. To help you celebrate the newlyweds in style, we’ve gathered 37 of the best wedding guest dresses to wear this season—from pink mini dresses to chic silky gowns. We turned to some of our favorite online retailers to find a variety of styles and price points—Lulus, Nordstrom, Revolve, Amazon, and Reformation included. (Pro tip: Some of these brands have sections on their websites dedicated to wedding guest dresses, making it even easier to narrow down your search for the big day.)

Whether you’re headed to an outdoor ceremony in Sonoma or a black-tie wedding in New York City, there’s a dress on this list for you. We made sure to include a variety of lengths, colors, and prices, while also considering how easy these dresses are to travel with.

Mini dresses

If the dress code is a bit more casual, you might opt for a mini dress—especially if you’ll be outdoors in a warm weather destination. Even in a shorter party dress, you’ll look elegant and wedding-appropriate in any of these styles. A mini dress is easy to pack and even easier to rewear than longer, more formal gowns. Any of these dresses work well for most any wedding season event, too—rehearsal dinners, bridal showers, and bachelorette parties alike.

Midi dresses

One of the most popular styles to wear to a wedding right now is a midi dress. They’re stylish, flattering, and feminine, while also being a safe length to wear for almost any type of wedding. There are plenty of midi dresses below to choose from—sleeveless, off the shoulder, A-line, floral dresses, and satin styles included.

Spring is the perfect time to add some fun colors to the mix—like the flowy tiered lavender dress from Lulus; the bright pink, high-neckline midi from Petal & Pup; or ASOS's azure blue puff sleeve number. One of our favorite wedding attire picks for travelers: theMara Hoffman popcorn dress. The scrunched-up dress can be thrown right in your carry-on and worn on the other end, no steamer required.

Maxi dresses

If you’re shopping for a floor-length dress, we have plenty of colorful options for you, from dressy styles to more casual ones. I’m eyeing the flirty Lulus blush pink flutter sleeve maxi and the Amanda Uprichard gown in a chic champagne color for a formal wedding I’m attending this May. Although elegant, long dresses can be tricky to pack and aren’t always the most comfortable to walk around in all night, these lightweight picks all fit nicely in a garment bag and won’t feel too bulky to wear on a warmer day. We also made sure these options aren’t restrictive on your legs—they’re breathable while still looking elevated.

Jumpsuits and rompers

The ultimate power move: pants. A jumpsuit is just as chic, yet way more comfortable to wear on long days, especially if you plan to spend most of the night on the dance floor. These jumpsuits are so versatile—they work just as well for a special occasion as they do for a dinner date. Plus, it’s an easy outfit to dress down with sandals and rewear, saving you some packing room.

Little black dresses

If you’re attending multiple weddings this year, you might want to avoid buying 10 new formal dresses you’ll only wear once. A simple LBD never goes out of style—switch out your heels and accessories and no one will ever know you’re an outfit repeater. A classic co*cktail dress like the one below from Dress the Population works well for just about any special event on your calendar this year and will remain a reliable closet staple for years to come. I usually pack a black slip dress on every vacation, like the one from Cuyana: It’s lightweight, can be rolled up tightly in my carry-on, and can be dressed down if needed with a pair of white sneakers and a cardigan.
