The wedding season has arrived and as weekends fill with nuptial celebrations, a wardrobe full of statement dresses is essential. To fête the newlyweds in style, look to the Spring 2017 collections – from silhouettes that can take a turn on the dancefloor to front-row regulars stepping out in evening-wear during the day. Take inspiration from our pick of designer offerings and street style ensembles for your next outing as wedding guest, and then shop Vogue Arabia’s edit of dresses fit for a spring wedding.
While many street style stars flex their sartorial credentials through cutting-edge separates, some raise the bar in gorgeous gowns while darting between shows. Captured by Vogue Arabia’s resident street style photographer, Valentina Frugiuele, a bevy of ideal matrimony-worthy candidates like sequined silhouettes, embellished ensembles, and charming confections made the rounds fashion week Fall 2017.
Power-player eveningwear designers like Elie Saab, Reem Acra, and Naeem Khan brought high-octane glamour to their collections. Shiny beadwork intensified gowns at Alexander McQueen, while Maria Grazia Chiuri’s Christian Dior sheer tulle dresses demanded a double take. The angelic designs at Marchesa and Monique Lhuillier are a signature choice for best-dressed guests.

This season’s dresses are jolted with hand-finished details and ethereal embroidery. If the wedding is held in a ballroom, voluminous gowns can come out to play. Go bold in a tulle infused Delpozo design or dramatic piece by Rosie Assoulin. For an intimate setting, snap up Alessandra Rich’s shoulder-baring lace creation or Carolina Herrera’s tea-length embellished number. Alessandro Michele’s sought-after Gucci frocks are always conversation-starting solutions.
