When it comes to wedding guest dresses, the modern rule of thumb is to choose an occasion-appropriate style but not be afraid to bend the rules. We've been taught to say away from black, red, and white to avoid a spotlight-stealing moment, but as wedding gown norms shift toward the unexpected and alternative, the same concept can be applied to wedding guest dresses.

In other words, those dresses that leave a question mark on your face such as a white dress covered by a bold floral print, a shoulder-baring mini, or a neon shade. You wonder, can a skosh of white pass? Is the show of skin too much? Is the electric hue a bit extra? Our answer? They're A-OK, so long as there is balance (i.e. your shoulder-baring mini has long sleeves, the pattern over white is an all-consuming one, and the dayglow shade features a minimal silhouette).

If that feels too forward, no worry. Go the pretty and romantic route with dresses that feature wispy flutter sleeves, a tiered skirt, puffy sleeves, or an asymmetrical hem or neckline. Or, take a streamlined approach via a '90s-inspired slip with minimal heels. Simply gorgeous.
