Flowers are blooming on the season’s best party dresses—it’s a trend as welcome as a surprise bouquet delivery. Petal prints set an enthusiastic and festive tone, no matter the setting or formality of the occasion. For a wedding, especially, there’s no better way to inject beautiful colors into your outfit.

We’ve picked our favorite flowery frocks. See the half-dozen styles, plus what to pair them with this summer on the nuptial circuit.

Within a palette, play freely with pastel accessories; mix shades and don’t concern yourself with matching your purse and shoes, or anything but your mood.
