Summer brings many things: warm weather, beach vacations, tan lines, and of course, wedding season. These joyous occasions are always a cause for celebration, but before the cake is cut and wedding bells ring, a great dress to wear to the special event must be found—and we know it’s not easy. Here’s a little inspiration: We rounded up 18 dresses fit for all kinds of weddings, be it daytime, formal, or outdoor nuptials. Click through the gallery to shop the styles, including (from left to right) designs by Tory Burch, Sandro, Tibi and Reiss.
