The flowers are blooming, the sun is shining, and love is in the air. I’m talking about wedding season, of course! Welcome to ModCloth’s brides survival guide to stepping out in style, whether you’re a guest, a bridesmaid, or even a bride!
As a woman planning her own wedding, this post is very close to my heart. Naturally, I don’t want my wedding to be your typical event. A vintage flair for me and my bridesmaids is a must. So when it came time to put together my unconventional attire for strolling down the aisle (or charming handsome groomsmen), I knew I had to look no further than my own favorite site — ModCloth, of course! I asked Purchasing Assistant Bobbi to model some bridal looks.
While white is a delight and perfect for the big day, I couldn’t help but be left wanting more. My ceremony is going to be an outdoor affair, so a lighter dress with a breezy cut called to me. The Beach Picnic dress, with it’s stunning retro cut and well-crafted detailing, seemed to be the perfect fit. By adding a floral hat (in lieu of a veil), lace gloves, and floral-embellished shoes, this look still has all the romanticism you’d want for a blushing bride for her time in the spotlight. Don’t forget to match the bouquet to the shoes (okay, maybe I’m going a bit overboard, but what else do you expect from a Buyer?).

Always a bridesmaid but never a bride? A fantastic floral frock that you can wear again and again is all the consolation a true fashionista should ever need! The aptly named Save the Date dress’s flattering cut, stunning floral print, and effortless versatility will take you from the ceremony to the dance floor without skipping a style beat. And if you plan on dancing well into the moonlight, the All Aboard Heel’s ultra-comfortable construction and vintage-inspired look will keep you going from the ABBA to ZZ Top. What more could you ask for?

Guest of Honor
And finally, not to be overlooked, the guest’s attire! A wedding is always an ideal excuse to buy that darling dress you’ve had your eye on without the guilt of wondering if it will ever leave the hanger. Sure, your dress may not be the center of attention this particular evening, but that doesn’t mean you can’t glam it up to help celebrate the union at hand. Demure gold details like The Neverending Necklace and the Eureeka’s Tassel Bracelet will transform a pretty floral dress into a uniquely chic look without looking overdone. Raise your glass, and toast spring fashion at it’s finest. That’s what wedding season is all about, right?
