The wedding season and dating Ill be married one day has never been less on my to-do list. However, some couples have decided to postpone their big day more often than ever before. On the other hand, some are prepared to get right to it and keep it simple. I have an invite for a beach wedding, a barn wedding, and a low-key city wedding (that I''m pretty sure will be the opposite).

I like to browse my Instagram explore page and Pinterest for inspiration. Every time I have a general idea of what vibe I''ll get, I consult expertsmost retailers have dedicated pages for wedding guest dresses on their sites. Amazon, for example, has an entire hub for brides, guests, bridesmaids, and bachelorette parties at every price point.

It''s very straightforward to see almost every internet site, but I might make it simple and find a standard silk dress to wear for any occasion, but it isnt in my nature to forfeit an opportunity to dress up (or wear something new and sparkly) and keep reading for seven complete outfits, for seven venues. I havent reached 21 Dresses status yet, but it''s only a matter of time.

Lets kick things off with the best beach location: the beach. As a guest, I know I will be there for a wonderful, chilly evening. Because of the atmosphere, beach weddings usually end up becoming somewhat more casual. This way, you can be comfortable and play up your accessories. This year, im enthuse to wear bright colors to beach weddings and revel in my golden hour Instagram photos.

Kyra Maxi Dress

This lime dress is perfect for a beach wedding (which is the perfect venue to show a little more skin). You get great photos with the ocean in the background against the dress''s tangy hue.

Jamm-3 Slide Sandal

Let''s be honest, your shoes won''t likely last long during a beach wedding. This pair is quick to slip on and off.

H.O.W. We Are Chic Top Handle Bag

This orange bag is the ultimate statement piece. Plus, youll want to wear it all summer long.

If youre attending a city wedding, your cool factor immediately went up. City weddings arent for everyone because they can be a logistical disaster (can you imagine fitting 200 people into a restaurant in New York City? ), so I recommend the Norma Kamali dress that she wore in theSex and the Cityreebot.

Diana Gown

A city wedding gives you the opportunity to wear something modern and elegant. This Norma Kamali dress is well-known for being extremely flattering and you''ll be able to wear it to various occasions.

Carmen Heeled Sandal

You''ll have to explain to everyone that these heels aren''t Bottega Veneta, and that they''re actually fantastic Steve Madden dupes for under $100.

Les Petit Bag

The combination of dress and shoe is simple, therefore you have the freedom to play up your accessories. I love this unexpected fringe evening bag.

I have yet to attend a traditional wedding in a worship facility so I''m taking inspiration from the royals. Despite your commitment, wearing a sophisticated (and more conservative) dress is always a good thing. Instead of wearing a huge hat (unless that''s your vibe, then please do), create a statement bag like a feather clutch.

Low-Back Bias Dress

Anthropologie offers a wide range of wedding guest dresses in regular, small, and plus sizes. This low-back dress shows just a bit of skin while still being adequate to wear in a conventional setting.

Rosie Ankle Tie Sandal

Ankle tie sandals are one of my favorite shoe styles because they extend the leg and look super chic. This pair by Open Edit is far more expensive than it is.

Ostrich Feather Embellished Clutch

This feather clutch comes with a chain cross-body strap, so you can wear it hands-free.

I''ve always planned to go in a floral super-feminine direction with my barn wedding look. I love how delicate florals and ruffles contrast with the old barn, but you won''t look over or underdress.

Ruffled Floral Dress

This ruffled floral dress is perfect for a barn wedding location because while it is traditional, it retains a more rustic vibe. The delicate sleeves elevate the dress and people will not believe that you paid it for only $50.

High Heeled Platform Sandals

This pair of pink heels adds a slightly girly look to the look.

Mini Pleated Clutch With Bow

This cute bag with bow detailing will keep all of your essentials for the night.

Consider this my official plea to be invited to your vineyard weddingI already have an outfit! Play into the shades of the vineyard (and the wine of course) by wearing green, yellow, blue, or shades of purple and red. A vineyard is a place where Id feel comfortable wearing a short dress as long as the dress details can help prevent the lack of length: puff-sleeves, ruffles, and bows are all fair game.

Giselle Dress

As long as the short dress is still formal enough for the wedding, it is absolutely ok. This Ulla Johnson dress is similar to that worn for a wine tasting in a cellar.

Braided Heel Sandal

This pair of affordable heels come in 18 (!) different colors, which allows you to choose the shade you prefer to dance the night away.

Sac Mini Bag

Instead of having a clutch, opt for this wrist-sling bag. The smooth leather will hold you back all day long.

If you invite black-tie, it''s your chance to treat the evening like your personal Met Gala. Don''t be over-dressed, go all out! Formal patterns like feathers, sequins, and oversized silhouettes to make your look stand out.

Floral Sequin Midi Dress With Feathers

This sequined dress with feather trim is reminded meThe Great Gatsbyin the best way.

Strappy Tie Mid Heel Sandals in Green

The dress has a lot on offer so it''s best to keep the shoe choice on the simpler side. This pair will compliment the dress without rivaling it.

Box Handbag

Think out of the box and get this box handbag to compliment the look.

If the bride is planning a garden wedding, there is a good chance she is a Bridgerton fan. Use the garden as your mood board and shine in shades of pink. Anything from a slip dress to a corset-style gown works in a garden setting. Always make sure not to confuse the venue for being casual. A dramatic floor-length dress is absolutely the perfect accessory.

Demre Dress

Im personally a big fan of Fanm Mon, a brand that specializes in dreamy linen dresses. This pink ruffled gown takes the garden theme literally (in the best way) and will look stunning in photos.

Antilique Strappy Sandal

This pair of strappy heels are all packaged, so you''ll be able to spend all of your money during the summer.

Ruffled Fabric Shoulder Bag

A surprise pop of color always matches a look. This ruffled bag modernizes the linen dress.
