Whether you're a bride planning your own big day or a bridesmaid helping a friend put together the details of her celebration, love is in the air. It's officially "wedding season," which means you probably have quite a few events to attend in the next few months. The fun part about being a guest at a wedding – as opposed to being part of the bridal party – is you get to choose your own gown!
We've compiled 25 gorgeous dresses to wear to your friends' nuptials in the coming months – whether they're saying "I do" in a tropical destination such as Hawaii, exchanging vows in a formal ballroom at a luxury hotel, or hosting a weekend-long celebration at a winery. You'll find both long and short options in an array of spring- and summer-approved colors and patterns.
