Garden weddings are one of the most enjoyable wedding dress codes to get ready for. With less formality and an alfresco setting, garden weddings encourage us to dress in a way that’s feminine, soft and romantic.
We’re all probably familiar with the lacklustre fashion moments that coincide with wedding season. From having nothing to wear to turning up in the wrong dress code (whatever they are), we’ve all been there.

We mean the unforgettable fashion moments that seem like a good idea at the time, but just look wrong later on.
If you’re wondering what to wear to a garden wedding in Spring, then you’ll be spoilt for outfit options. Your shopping coincides with seasonal sales, fresh Spring/Summer collections, and the excitement of the new season.

While there is plenty of variety in the actual location of a garden wedding (for instance, is it in a backyard, a manicured public garden, or some other outdoor space) the look is softer and more floaty than what you’d likely wear in a formal indoor setting.
Think soft pastels and light as a feather fabrics, flowy skirts and materials that skim the body rather than cling.
Obviously, when deciding what to wear to a garden wedding, floral prints are the natural choice for many guests as they pay homage to the location while still being completely dress-code friendly.
While nature and the great outdoors are great kick starters for fashion inspiration, when choosing joy-generating prints remember that anything overly bold and brightly eye-catching might be best saved for a beach wedding or destination wedding.
