The Best Dresses To Wear To A Barn Wedding

Style expert and fashion blogger, Candie Anderson has the scoop on 21 of the best wedding guest dresses for women attending barn weddings this summer, fall, winter and spring too!

 

 

 

We used to think of wedding season as the month of June, but over the last decade that has quickly changed. There actually is no such thing as wedding season anymore, as weddings take place throughout the year! There is such beauty in fall weddings, winter weddings, weddings held in the spring and of course the uber popular summer weddings! One thing is for sure, barn weddings are extremely popular. As someone who lives in a rural area, I think this is fantastic. I love barn weddings and have attended quite a few. A few years ago I posted about the best dresses for country wedding guests, and today I thought it was time to create a post on the best barn wedding guest dresses.

You may be surprised to learn that there aren’t many restrictions when shopping for dresses for barn weddings. Lace is a must, so is floral print! You can’t go wrong with dresses that are above the knee! Midi dresses will look fab with Western inspired mules. Last but definitely not least, a flowy maxi dress will look amazing on.

If you’re searching for a fabulous new wedding guest dress for the next barn wedding you’re invited to, you’re in luck! Today, I’m excited to share 21 of the best barn wedding guest dresses! Not only are they perfect for barn weddings, but many can be worn time and time again to a variety of events.
