Garden Wedding

A ceremony that takes place in a scenic orchard or backyard garden calls for on-theme floral looks, preppy extras and footwear that won't sink into the lawn.

Beach Wedding

Off to a destination wedding? Lucky you. Run with the exotic locale and pick a floaty dress in a fun print or pattern. Flat sandals are a must for sandy ceremonies—as are ray-blocking shades, of course.

Festive Nighttime Wedding

Celebrating a couple who loves to party? Go for a minidress in an electric color. You can really have fun with your accessories here, too—try something embellished or otherwise sparkling.

Black Tie Wedding

When black tie attire's required or even just optional, your safest bet is a streamlined dress that grazes the floor. One bold piece of statement jewelry (whether of the fine or costume variety) will amp up your entire look. Remember: it's always better to err on the side of overdressing.
