When you received the invitation to your friend’s wedding in the mail, you probably told yourself not to wait until the last minute to find a dress. However, the weeks have passed and you still haven’t figured out what to wear. No worries! The Prowl community has come to the rescue! We’re compiling the best dresses of the season to make choosing the right dress a less daunting task. Check out the I Need a Dress board over on The Prowl!

The High-Low Dress

The high-low dress is the best way to show off a bit of leg without overdoing it.

The Ruched Dress

Admit it, you dread the idea of layering shapewear under dresses that cling in places you’d rather they didn’t. Well, throw your Spanx aside and make chiffon ruching your new best friend. The textured design smooths your stomach area while the chiffon skirt hangs comfortably from your hips.

The Lace Dress

You can’t go wrong with a classic lace dress in a rich color like emerald green. Take the dress to the next level with a pair of dramatic hanging earrings.

The Embellished Dress

Whether you choose beading, sequins, or an intricately stitched design, an embellished dress will make you stand out from the other wedding guests.

The Printed Dress

Step out in a boldly printed cocktail dress that hugs you in all the right places. Just be sure not to show up the bride.

  1. The dress are nice for the young. I would prefer them to at least be a little below the knee. To me it is more modest. For an older woman this type of dress would not look good. There is far too much that is exposed today. Not much modesty anymore in clothing. It can be difficult for those who prefer a more modest dress to even find one.

    • I AGREE THE DRESS SHOULD BE LONGER so it could be worn more effortlessly. I HAVE THE EXACT SAME DESIGN IN A GRAY SHINEY DRESS, SAME BELT AND BOY DO I FEEL DARING IN THAT WHEN I WEAR IT. I TRY NOT TO WEAR AS HIGH OF HEELS WITH IT AS THIS MODEL DOES AS IT LOOKS TOO VAMPY. THIS DRESS IS BETTER FOR A WOMAN WHO HAS LITTLE CURVES AND SMALL BREASTS TO GIVE HER SOME SEXINESS. IF YOUR AVERAGE TO TALL AND SEXY TO BEGIN WITH IT JUSTS MAKES TOO MUCH NOISE!

    • I am in my 30s, almost 5’8″ and a US size 4, and I really would not want to wear any of these dresses! The dark blue chiffon dress is okay, but it’s nothing special, and certainly not the type of dress I’d wear to a winter wedding. I agree with all the posters who wrote that this selection is nothing special!

  3. These dresses don’t even ALMOST outshine the bride. Ihate myself for wasting my time reading articles like these. That was 30 seconds of disappointed scrolling I will never get back.

  4. I guess only young in perfect shape women can wear dresses.

  5. If you’re going for the young and skinny, above the knee, bare legs, then they are what they are. Otherwise, none of these are most appealing or must have’s. I agree with Arlene and CJ; lower the hem lines and nix the bare legs! Class and modesty always works for both the young and the mature.

  6. What a drab selection you’ve chosen to show. Even the young models look forlorn in such blah styling and dull colors. Besides, except for the smallest of ceremonies, many if not most of the women guests will be the friends of both families and closer to the age of the two mothers than to that of the bride. These are the women who could use suggestions for stylish wedding wear that is both attractive or glamourous and age and fuller figure appropriate. A truly realistic ad for a mixed age group of women would be far more appealing to the viewing public and successful for your sponsors. And for goodness sake, show some attractive colors; so long as it’s not black or white, fire engin red, any color would be appropriate.

  8. They are all ugly dresses and not fashion forward. Who decided to choose them? Poor taste

  9. I’ve been looking for a mother of the bride dress for months. I’m in my 60s and everything out there either makes me look 80 and frumpy or is just too glitzy or revealing for a 60 year old. I think I’m just going to make mine…..I can do better than what’s other there.
