Maid of honor, mother of the bride, or guest at a black tie affair? If you fall into any of those categories, you’re likely in the market for long dresses for weddings! Formal gowns might not be a part of your everyday wardrobe, but they’re a glamorous way to capture your distinctive style. Feel free to have some fun and show off your personality when picking out formal dresses for weddings and other special occasions. For a thoroughly modern look, choose a long black dress and accessorize with sleek, sparkling accents. If you're headed to a summer gala or garden party, white formal dresses are the perfect pick for warm weather affairs. (Skip them for weddings, of course!) And if you’re aiming to make a splash and stand out from the crowd, go glam with a long gold dress that evokes retro 70s style.
Our collection of floor-grazing designs also includes more casual options, like long summer dresses that look super chic at seasonal events. Maxi dresses for weddings are perfect for ceremonies in tropical destinations; they feel a bit fancier than a short sun dress, but their breezy shapes help you keep your cool when temperatures rise. Long party dresses also give you room to experiment with color; shades like blush, navy blue, and green are flattering for lots of skin tones and pair perfectly with your favorite metallic jewelry or accessories.
Speaking of accessories, you’ll need a few finishing touches no matter which long gown you choose. Add sparkle to an understated gown with a beaded sash, layer on a luxurious topper for a winter event, or finish your look with a bridal headpiece (hint: they’re not just for the bride!). Finally, there’s the matter of jewelry. Browse our collection of jewelry for the bride and her guests to scoop up a pair of glittering chandelier earrings or a cuff bracelet and complete your formal ensemble.
