You’ve already RSVP’d yes to the wedding, and the next step is finding a spectacular dress. While many weddings have now been postponed, we've still been browsing our favorite online stores for the perfect dress to debut when we're finally able to celebrate together again. Plus, having a few wedding guest looks in your arsenal is never a bad idea, especally when they're versatile enough to sport outside of a wedding venue.

We normally love a chic white dress, but it's best to save those for other occassions. Instead, opt for mellow pastels, rich jewel tones, and even neutrals in interesting silhouettes and sumptuous fabrics. From classic floral maxis to silk slips and tulle minidresses, we’ve compiled the most unforgettable wedding guest outfits that you can't go wrong with.

Caroline Constas’s Liv Gown is the ultimate pretty in pink dress. The ruffled high-low hem and balloon sleeves exude elegance without showing too much skin. With its silk chiffon fabric and light pink hue, make this your go-to summer wedding guest look.
