The Garden Wedding Dress Code

As we step into spring and spring clean our wardrobes, we may start to realise a lack of summery dresses and bright styles, especially with an abundance of spring weddings just around the corner. The garden wedding is one of the most popular wedding dress codes of the season. The garden wedding dress code calls for not so much winter dresses but instead for floral print numbers and pastel hues. Think gorgeous gem tones and embellished mini dresses. A look that is whimsical and playful all in one. Your spring wedding style will be able to be perfectly paired with chic baby pink kitten heels or dazzling gold jewellery (and everything else in between!)

The garden wedding can often be a little bit more casual than some other wedding dress codes. A black-tie dress code is much glitzier and usually calls for a full-length gown while a garden wedding is more of a cocktail dress or smart casual dress code. A garden wedding is often in the spring or summer time and is sometimes a backyard style occasion, or you may even be off to an outdoor wedding at the beach.


Pastel Dresses

Baby pinks and sky blues are the perfect pastel shades for an outdoor wedding. Match the vibes of summertime with these lighter colours that were made for spring time affairs. You may want a block colour look or you can inject pastels into a floral print dress and even combine pastel shades with darker colours such as black or navy.


Lace Dresses

Oh la la lace. Lace dresses scream whimsy and ethereality. Lace is the perfect fabric to wear to a summer time occasion – especially a warm weathered wedding. Lace is a popular choice for mothers of the brides as well as weddings guests. You can even wear a lace little black dress (and yes, you can often wear black to a wedding these days!) A lovely lace is oh so romantic and the perfect choice for a wedding.


Floral Dresses

The obvious choice for a garden wedding dress code is a floral print dress. Florals were made for spring and were especially made for a spring time wedding. Add a pocketful of posy to your spring time wardrobe with a few floral print dresses that can be perfectly accessorised with jewellery.
