Summer weddings are guaranteed to be beautiful and just as exciting for the guests as it is for the future newlyweds! As wonderful as the time leading up to it can be, it can be stressful deciding what to wear as a guest. Especially if you don’t want to splurge and it’s a black tie theme! Shopping online can be hard as well, sometimes you may feel like you don’t even know where to start. But don’t worry! Below, we listed all types of attire from multiple different stores that range from affordable to pricey.
This dress comes in 6 different colors and can be dressed up or dressed down, plus its only $65! Princess Polly offers sizing 0-12. I recommend reading the reviews before purchasing! Although this dress does have great reviews already!
This is a green and yellow maxi floral print dress from ASTR The Label . Absolutely stunning for a summer wedding in a garden, backyard, winery, etc. The sizes are XS-XL. $148
Another beautiful choice! However, this is more on the pricier side of options at $329. But if you are attending a formal summer wedding and looking to purchase a reliable, timeless piece, I would highly recommend this dress.
The color of this dress is perfect for a summer wedding, it’s bright and fun, but light enough that you won’t stand out so much! The dress is directly from Revolve, which can be hit or miss at times, but this brand specifically sold on Revolve, I do highly recommend! $188.
Another option from Revolve! If you are looking for a short dress or something a bit less formal, this is a stunning dress. I think it would be beautiful at a beach wedding with the different shades of blues. $188
This dress is from Lulus, which has an enormous amount of options. I personally love the color contrast on this dress and think it could look stunning at a colorful summer wedding. A lot of people have had great experiences purchasing from Lulus and highly recommend it! I am very back and forth with this website, they offer amazing pieces, but I have found myself disappointed with the quality at times. $73.
Another option from Lulus! This one is super flowy and fun and perfect for your next event. The dress has a high rating as well which is even better! $75.
This dress is so bright and fun! It can be matched perfectly with a nude heel or a white heel or even spiced up with a colorful heel! So versatile! This dress is from Showpo. I have heard a lot of positive things from Showpo but have never directly purchased from the site myself. However, this dress has good reviews and so do other items on the site! $89.95
Another option from Showpo! And another Satin option! But still so elegant and perfect for an event. It’s flowy and fun and can be worn again in each season. $89.95.
Reformation is definitely a much pricier brand as a whole, but their pieces are still gorgeous and many people speak highly of their clothes . This dress goes for $348. It looks darker in this image but the dress is a navy blue and absolutely perfect for a fun, summer wedding.
Yes, color at a summer wedding is great, but sometimes an elegant black and white dress is a better option! I think the pattern on this dress compliments summer and adding colored accessories can really enhance the look! $150.
Yes, another green satin dress! Yet, this one is mini and so adorable. I have loved this dress for months and think it could be accessorized beautifully for a summer wedding. $64.
Finding the perfect wedding guest attire can be challenging, expensive, and call for many returns. My best advice is to focus on finding stores or brands that you are familiar with and have a track record of offering well-fitting and comfortable clothes. Approach your search with a predetermined budget in mind and consider whether you’ll also require shoes or accessories. While looking for recommendations, I came across exquisite dresses priced at $400 or more, but then discovered remarkably similar designs on other websites for around $100.It is important to decide whether you think you’ll wear it enough to splurge or if it’s just for the occasion! Altogether, I hope these recommendations helped you or pointed you in the right direction.
