Wedding season is nearly here, and that means one thing: you (probably) need a new dress to wear for all of the celebrations that are no doubt flooding your calendar. Whether you're toasting your best friend from childhood, an old friend from college, or a member of your family, you'll want to look your very best in all of those professional photos. Luckily, the internet's favorite occasion-wear destination, Revolve, is running its massive 20th Anniversary Sale today, March 2, and everything is 20% off to celebrate. 

Yes, you’re reading that correctly—everything is on sale on Revolve right now when you apply the discount code “HAPPY20” at checkout. As someone who literally shops for a living, I could not be happier for the massive sale—but as someone who has a few weddings and wedding-adjacent occasions coming up this year, I’m a little stressed. Thanks to opaque dress codes and, well, the fact that I don’t have an endless shopping budget, finding the very best wedding guest dress for the spring and summer seasons can get complicated—and fast

To make sense of it all for myself (and for you, obviously) I took the time to find the very best spring dresses in Revolve’s sale—read: I literally scrolled through nearly 12,000 dresses so you don’t have to—and deciphered a few of the most common wedding dress codes below. Ahead, shop a cocktail dress that Carrie Bradshaw actually wore that’s on sale for less than $200, plus drool-worthy gowns that I wish I could wear. Please wear one of these for me, I’m begging you.

Casual Dresses

These are the dresses you wear to your friend's quaint backyard wedding, that beachy summertime bash, or a daytime wedding occasion, like a bridal shower or bachelorette party. Think: floral prints, easy silhouettes, and lightweight fabrics. 

Cocktail Dresses

The next step up from causal wedding—and probably the most common dress code nowadays—is the cocktail dress code. You can play around a bit with silhouette, color, shape, and length, but I generally opt for knee-length, tea-length, or midi-length options here. 

Formal and Black Tie Dresses

Formalwear may also be called black tie-optional on some wedding invitations, and many of the same rules apply. Look for floor-length dresses, a fancier cocktail dress, or a glitzy jumpsuit. Black tie weddings require a floor-length gown that doesn't show the ankles.
