I don't know about all of you, but now that vaccines—and even boosters—are more readily available, it feels like every engaged person I know is rescheduling their pandemic-postponed weddings to this winter. Once the off-season for trips down the aisle, winter now appears to be *the* time to get married. Because of that, I now find myself in need of a handful of formal dresses to wear as I watch all the pent-up love unfold. 

Since I can't be the only one whose winter calendar is suddenly booked with one wedding after the next, I thought it only right to share my growing list of dresses in contention for the busy season ahead. So without further ado, scroll on for 35 dresses to wear to all your forthcoming winter weddings. Who knows—maybe we'll end up wearing the same ones.

My top contenders:

I actually already bought this one. You should too.

This tube dress features a zip-around detail that allows you to create a cutout. 

I never used to like formal two-pieces, but this one has me thinking otherwise. 

The real star of this dress is the back. 

I don't know if I've ever loved a dress more than I love this bubblegum-pink one.

The low back on this halter-neck dress is genuinely stunning.

More dresses to wear to a winter wedding:

Gold for the holidays isn't exactly groundbreaking, but that doesn't make it any less perfect. 

*Shamelessly tries to re-create Bella Hadid and Kendall Jenner's bridesmaid dresses from Lauren Perez's wedding.*

This plissé dress is perfect for any occasion, winter weddings included.

The subtle pin detail on this one elevates it so much. 

Sure, this isn't the most wintry of dresses, but style rules were meant to be broken.

I love the idea of wearing a chain belt with this one-shoulder knit dress to spice it up. 

I'm bias toward dresses that can be worn for both fancy and casual occasions.

Winter weddings and velvet dresses are a match made in heaven.

I love a wedding guest dress that can be worn far after the last dance. 

This dress has the coolest under-boob detailing.

A good rule of thumb: If you're wearing Jacquemus, you made the right outfit call.

All you need are some black strappy heels to go with this slinky body-con.

The back of this turtleneck dress is a pleasant surprise.

With so many weddings to attend, I am always looking for ways to save money on dresses. Who What Wear x Target is my tried-and-true solution.

You can wear this for years to come. 

I'm not usually one to wear a minidress to a wedding, but I'd make an exception for this velvet number.

Can we please take a moment to appreciate the color of this dress? It's truly beautiful. 

This dress is giving major French-girl vibes.

Now, you just need to pick out what chic coat you're going to wear with it. 

You don't need to catch the bouquet if you're wearing this floral slip. 

This dress deserves some serious love. 

For all your wedding and New Year's Eve sartorial needs.

This shade of green might be my new favorite color for winter.
