Weddings are a perfect opportunity for test-driving some of the season's most glamorous trends. For a classically elegant wedding ensemble, we paired Willow's drapey coral cocktail dress ($980 at Net-a-Porter ) with a classic Bottega clutch ($2100 at ForwardForward ) and metallic ankle-strap sandals ($69 at Zara ). An amber cocktail ring from Banana Republic ($45 at Banana Republic) compliments the dress' warm hue.
For a more casual wedding ensemble, pair a peplum-waist sundress ($50 at Zara ) with colorful accessories like Zara's cobalt suede clutch ($80 at Zara ) and dangly blue earrings by Ioselliani ($147 at ForwardForward ). Strappy patent sandals ($98 at J.Crew ) ensure your feet are ready for all-night dancing excursions.
Forals were a big theme on the runways this season, and are never out of place at a summer wedding. We paired Proenza's flowery orange cocktail dress ($1025 at LaGarconne ) with statement-making flower earrings ($65 at J.Crew ) and a sporty neoprene clutch by Phillip Lim ($122 at Net-a-Porter). Laser-cut patent sandals ($198 at J.Crew) add a few inches of height without throwing you off your groove.
For a more urban wedding scenario, we tried Lanvin's draped belted cocktail dress ($1645 at Net-a-Porter) with suede black sandals ($50 at Zara) and Margiela's smart patent leather clutch ($385 at LaGarconne). Geometric earrings from Forever 21 ($5.80 at Forever21) add a dash of sparkle without feeling too over-the-top.
Deco-inspired looks were among our favorite spring trends, and the glam ensembles are perfect for dressy wedding occasions. We paired Topshop's geometric-embellished maxi dress ($360 at Topshop) with Bijoux Heart's glitzy gold earrings ($585 at Net-a-Porter) and a simple satin evening bag ($26.80 at Forever21). Mango's metallic-heeled sandals ($125 at Mango) are exactly the right height for breaking it down on the dance floor.
