The Prettiest Colors to Wear to a Wedding Right Now
We all know white is a no-no when it comes to wedding guest attire (unless there's a specific theme, of course), but bright and zesty colors are an exceedingly fun choice if you're planning to wear a dress or jumpsuit to the next wedding on your calendar. While neutral shades like black, navy, tan, and gray are versatile, they can feel a bit humdrum for a celebratory event — also, depending who you're talking to, black can actually be seen as a faux pas unless it's a black-tie wedding.
Bouncy shades like lemony yellow, bubblegum pink, cerulean blue, and lime green were splashed across the Spring/Summer 2019 runways from Carolina Herrera, Marc Jacobs, Escada, Brandon Maxwell, Prabal Gurung, Valentino, and so many more. Whether you find yourself drawn to an electric shade or powdery hue, these vivid colors feel decidedly fresh for wedding season, from flowing midi dresses to tiered maxis, micro minidresses, and playful jumpsuits.
Whether you're searching for a look that's right for a casual wedding, formal affair, rustic reception, or all three, ahead, we're spotlighting six superpretty colors to wear as a wedding guest this Summer in ultrabright to toned-down shades, including a couple of new-in pieces from the POPSUGAR collection at Kohl's.
From bright azure to cornflower, zippier shades of blue feel fresh for a Summer occasion in place of classic navy. For an ultraromantic spin, choose a silhouette with details like a frilled hem, puffed sleeves, a lace inset, a bustier neckline, or a feminine floral print.

As our one of our favorite color-fanatic fashion girls Elle Woods famously stated, "Whoever said orange is the new pink was seriously disturbed." Go bold in saturated shades like fuchsia and bubblegum, or go the tempered route in blush or pink lemonade.

We have '90s and early 2000s nostalgia to thank for the influx of green this season, but before you categorize this color family as too slimy, shades like fern, emerald, and lime are exceptionally gorgeous, from solids to a mix of playful prints.
