With wedding season in full force (at least for me it is), I am constantly looking for a cute dress to wear to all these summer weddings. I have had a variety of weddings from beach chic to black tie and always seem to find myself scrambling for the best dress option (literally, every single time). Also, welcome parties have become a big thing, so I have needed to find not just one, but two dresses for the weekend. I figured I am not alone in the dress scramble, and did a bit of research so I can shop ahead for the rest of the summer. Today’s post is dedicated to 10 wedding guest dress ideas, covering a little bit of everything from more casual to formal and affordable to a bit more splurge worthy! If you are a bride-to-be reading this and looking for an adorable little white dress that is under $50, I have you covered…this lace one is to die for! Hope you find this helpful and can pull up this post next time you are gearing up for a wedding and struggling on what to wear.
I need to start with this scalloped number (more sizes here) that I wore to a beach wedding the other weekend. It was light weight and perfect for an outdoor setting, but also had the cutest scalloped detailing of all time.
If a lover of the little black dress, this one is for you! With a slight twist on the traditional LBD, the lace detailing makes it a bit more appropriate for the warm summer months and I am loving the twist neckline.
This might be one of my favorite dresses as of lately. With a price point just over $100 and a maxi style that can work for any occasion it is for sure a dress that can serve many purposes. It is dainty and feminine and can be worn with a pair of strappy sandals or slip on some flats.
I spotted this maxi when I swung by the store the other day and am kicking myself for not picking it up on the spot. It comes in two colors (although I prefer the blush) and would look perfect with a fun statement earring.
You may remember this dress I wore during the cooler months with a leather jacket. It is back in stock and a great option for a more fitted number while being wedding appropriate. We have a wedding in Nantucket later this summer and this option will be getting packed in my bag! Check out the entire line, each dress is so good!
Total splurge worthy number, but this cobalt blue is absolutely beautiful. This dress has been around for awhile with updated colors each season. A complete classic that can be worn over and over again.
For the boho-babe, this dress is on sale and under $50! It’s free spirited and fun, perfected for twirling around the dance floor.
Another little number that is topping my favorite list! It is a splurge, but the scalloped edged on this halter neckline is to die for!!
While a bit on the bolder side, the embroidery detail on this pleated dress is gorgeous. This dress is perfect for summer, but also can take you into the fall.
Last but not least, the front twist detail on this dress makes it flattering for most body types. Available in 3 colors, the slinky material makes this dress adorable and comfortable.
