A spring wedding guest dress pays homage to the season without upstaging the bride. But just because you can’t wear white doesn’t mean you need to blend in with the rest of the attendees. A striking, beautiful gown does exist, and we’ve found some of the best wedding guest dresses for spring that fit any type of dress code—from black tie to cocktail to a brunchtime affair, these frocks are fit for any type of fete.

Whether you’re looking for a summer dress for women over 50 or a cocktail dress for women over 50, we think you should wear whatever gives you the most confidence. You certainly can’t go wrong with a little black dress (or LBD as we like to call them)—but there’s something to be said for donning a colorful frock to reflect the changing season. While floral patterns for spring might not be a groundbreaking concept, a flowery tea-length dress is great for a daytime soiree. Or, if you’re on the hunt for a black-tie-worthy gown, we’ve found some options that will have you looking and feeling priceless. Of course, we have picks for those looking for a jumpsuit, too, because not every occasion calls for a dress.
