It seems that everyone is getting married these days, and finding something to wear can be a nightmare! Do you go for a calf length floaty number, or a sexy mini? Well, while a lot is dependent on the theme and location, net-a-porter have an amazing selection of dresses right now. Here are my favourites, perfect for any wedding!

1 Issa Printed Silk Jersey Dress

Wow! This is a gorgeous dress, that is sure to get you noticed without any chance of upstaging the bride! Monochrome is a massive trend right now, which is set to carry on well into the new year, and the butterfly print adds a feminine, elegant touch. The plunge front and slim fit means its amazingly flattering, and I love the back, too! Team with a blazer for a conservative day time look, and make sure you have some amazing jewellery!

2 Issa Silk Jersey Plunge Front Gown

Another shop stopping dress, this full length gown is brought to life by its amazing colour! It’s conservative enough to wear to the ceremony, but elegant enough for the night party, too. And I’m in love with the styling at the back! You’re sure to feel a million dollars in silk, and the colour is vibrant enough to give skin a sexy, healthy glow, too. A dream dress! Team with a clutch and a gorgeous chain necklace for maximum impact!

3 One Vintage Evelene Dress

Looking for something with a more vintage feel? This dress combines traditional colours and patterns with modern dress making secrets, producing a flattering but very vintage dress. I love the plum lace, and the draped sleeves! The sequins add glamour, so you don’t need to add many accessories, either! Gold heels look amazing, but plum can look out of this world if you can find the right shade! Then add a black cape for the journey, and a clutch, and its perfect!

4 Notte by Marchesa Ribbon Trimmed Silk Chiffon Dress

Looking for something a little shorter? This dress is gorgeous, combining the floaty chicness of chiffon with a bright blueberry colour and girly ribbons. I love it! Wear it with sky high black heels and a diamond bracelet to add a rock chick edge, or find bright pink shoes and put a pink ribbon in your hair for a girly angle. It’s gorgeous, and so flattering!

5 Rachel Gilbert Coco Silk Chiffon Gown

This is a very modern dress, combining a unique aqua colour with an on-trend one shoulder, frills and a belted middle. It’s perfect for taller figures, as the belt really helps to split up the body, and the detail at the top is very eye catching. Keep jewellery to a minimum, and instead combine with a clutch and an up-do.

6 Notte by Marchesa Leopard Print Chiffon Dress

Leopard print and weddings have never really gone together, but Marchesa have combined them with excellent results here! The chiffon keeps it elegant and suitable, and the size of the print and golden stylings mean the print isn’t vulgar. The one strap keeps it on trend, too. Be careful not to combine any more animal print, though, and instead find gold accessories to dress up the jewels.

7 Rachel Gilbert Ashleight Embellished Silk Gown

If you are going to a wedding in a castle, or similar location, a normal gown just won’t cut it. This gorgeous pink chiffon dress looks amazing, and would be just as perfect for the bridesmaids! The pink chiffon is very flattering, and looks divine combined with the jewelled top. Pick jewelled shoes, a pendant necklace and a gorgeous clutch to maximise the princess-y impact!

8 Marchesa Asymmetric Silk Chiffon Gown

This is a gorgeous, and very dramatic, dress! The chiffon dress is slim fitting and flattering, and the asymmetric line and floaty cuff add an edginess that looks amazing! I love the neckline decoration, too. Strappy golden shoes and a gold bangle will finish the dress off perfectly, and you are sure to be the belle of the ball!

9 Rachel Gilbert Silk Beaded Corset Gown

If you want a dress that really boosts your figure, this is it! The corset boosts your assets while keeping you looking trim, and the gown gives an hourglass shape while hiding any problem areas. The strapless design keeps it looking modern, and the beading gives it a feminine look. Find simple silver jewellery and heels, and then a statement silver clutch for a very glamorous update.

10 Notte by Marchesa Strapless Silk Chiffon Gown

The navy colouring means this dress is very versatile, and can be worn all year round. The cut is flattering and on trend...but its the massive ribbon that I love! Injecting just the right amount of girly glamour, it transforms the dress and teamed with a messy up do and some girly bracelets, it’s a simple and elegant answer to any wedding.

11 Donna Karan Asymmetric Silk Georgette Gown

This is my favourite dress! The cut is flattering, and the colour is amazing. I love the girlyness the ruffles add, and the slit adds a final, sexy dimension!

12 Alexander McQueen Silk Blend Plunge Front Dress

Looking for something a little different? This dress is very slim-fitting, and the colour is divine! It’s the plunge front that sets it apart from the rest, though.
