With Wedding Season just around the corner, it’s time to do your homework on affordable wedding guest dresses! Check out these super affordable dresses to remind yourself you can look stunning without having to spend a fortune.
1. Floral Maxi Dress
For Spiring and Summer weddings, floral prints are such a cute choice. We love the idea of going with a maxi dress instead of a cocktail dress, and the off the shoulder cuffs are an adorable detail! The higher waist on this dress gives it a classy feel, and the wine color will look GORG with a tan. Pair this dress with a pair of tan wedges, or go for a pop of color with a navy or a green heel! Go big with the earrings, or jazz it up a bit with a chunky statement necklace. This maxi is just dressy enough, but not too dressy where you’ll stick out like a sore thumb. The breezy skirt and light fabric make this dress perfect for an outdoor wedding!
Just like a marriage, picking a dress to wear as a guest requires compromise! This high low dress is the perfect compromise between a sexy short dress and a longer, elegant gown. The mix between the two styles gives this dress a super fun and youthful vibe, while the rich color of the fabric paired with the form-fitting bodice packs a sultry punch! A pair of kitten heels and dangly earrings will really complete this look, and since the dress is simple enough, do something fun with your hair! Style it up, or do big sexy curls to compliment the tone of the dress. If you’re attending a family-centered wedding, this dress is a great way to show off that figure of yours without being too over the top!
3. Maxi Romper Dress
Rompers are super cute and easy to style, but your typical romper might not be dressy enough for an upper scale wedding. If you hate the idea of wearing a skirt, check out this maxi romper dress! It has the shorts a romper is well-known for, with an extra layer of fabric over top to give this outfit a high-end, couture look. If you’re someone who basically LIVES on the dance floor at any social gathering, this might be a good choice for you (especially if there will be alcohol served at this event)! You’re wearing shorts, so you won’t have to worry about dropping it too low or flashing the goodies during the Wobble. I mean, you can never really be too safe, can you?
4. Off The Shoulder Sweetheart Dress
The name of this dress alone is enough to convince us it’s perfect to wear at a wedding! Celebrate your favorite sweethearts in this off the shoulder sweetheart dress that’s sexy enough to make us swoon! The deep v and body con style of this dress gives this dress the va-va voom factor, but it’s still classy enough to make you feel comfortable enough to wear it around the bride’s old-school Grandma. Because this dress is a little bit on the revealing side, think about toning it down a bit if part of this event takes place at a church. Layer a cardigan over top, and opt for a pair of stylish flats instead of heels! Your feet will probably thank you for this later anyways after a night spent on the dance floor! If you’re a single Pringle looking to find a plus one to the next wedding you attend, pull out this dress and it’ll for sure be the last time you attend a wedding alone!
5. Tulle Dress
Tulle isn’t just for wedding dresses! Even though we do highly suggest making sure the bride will not be sporting a tulle dress herself (no one wants to show up the bride on her special day). This floor-length tulle dress is so beautiful, you’ll be dying to get invited to another wedding just so you can wear this bad boy again! We love the sash and the spaghetti straps, but we are LIVING for the blushy, romantic tones the layering of the tulle and the fabric of the dress provides. Add a little bit of sparkle to this look with a pair of chandelier earrings, or a sparkly clutch! You can stick with a nude heel or be bold and strap on those metallic stilettos you’ve been waiting for just the right occasion to wear! This is the perfect dress to rock if you’re looking to knock the socks off your date!
6. Backless Dress
Backless dresses are a great way to be sexy without having to wear a super low neckline and show off that toned back of yours! This dress has almost a reverse sweetheart neckline affect, with its deep v hem right above the waist. The thicker straps on this dress frame your back, making it the focal point of this style. If you plan on wearing a dress like this to the next wedding you attend, try styling your hair in a sleek ponytail to make sure your hair won’t get in the way of the stunning detail in the back! You can even add a little extra glitz to this look with a body chain to really accentuate all that open space!
Okay, so technically this isn’t a dress. But we are thoroughly OBSESSED with the pants for ladies trend. Who says dresses are the only thing a woman can wear to a wedding?? We think this look is incredibly classy and sophisticated, not to mention incredibly comfortable and flattering. The flouncy element of the top part of this jumpsuit creates a tucked-in look, and the flared pants will make you look like you have legs for DAYS! The more masculine look of the pants is softened by this dusty pink, and we LOVE the idea of a higher neckline. If you’re a lady boss and you’re looking to take a step outside of the box this wedding season, go bold and slay in this powerful jumpsuit!
