You heard it here first: semi-formal is the most popular wedding dress code. If you're unsure of what to wear to an event that's not super formal, but not super casual, we've got you covered. Midi length dresses are not only one of the hottest fashion trends in general, they're also versatile enough to work for casual and formal weddings—and everything in between. What defines a midi length wedding guest dress? The hemline should fall anywhere from two inches below your knees to just above your ankles, making it a middle length (get it?) between floor-length and knee-length. Now that we've established this style is the perfect option for wedding guest attire, let's get to the fun stuff—shopping chic looks from brands we love, including Vince, Jonathan Simkhai, Lapointe and Self Portrait.

Below, we've rounded up midi wedding guest dresses for every wedding theme (think: cutouts, sequins and floral prints) that are sure to impress, no matter the vibe you're going for. These best sellers and new arrivals are sure to sell out, so shop them here now before it's too late.
