Wedding season is almost upon us, and chances are your calendar is already full. With the massive variety of ceremonies today (vineyard! yacht! ranch!) the age-old conundrum of what to wear has only intensified. To help you focus on celebrating with the happy couple, here are a few location-specific outfit ideas to streamline your packing. Just because you aren’t walking down the aisle doesn’t mean you can’t look fabulous. We do draw the line at tiaras, though.
A beach wedding typically means sunshine and an offshore breeze, so opt for a loose bun pinned with delicate pearl pins, a practical wedge sandal, and a feather-light maxi-dress. Finish with a bold clutch.

Formal weddings are the perfect time to dial up the glamour. Channel your inner screen-siren and choose a floor-lenth gown in matte sequins. Add delicate drop earrings, a structured clutch and classic suede pumps for height.

Whether the festivities are being held on a ranch, in a barn, or on a vineyard, you'll be grateful for wearing a chunky heel (read: no sinking into the grass). Pair with a pretty floral dress, bright raffia clutch, and sleek gold cuff.

City weddings are the ideal environment to channel spring's graphic trend. Stick to a black and white palette and keep the pattern focused to one piece, in this case a statement dress. Add subtle interest with a perforated clutch and banded mules.
