Be the Best Dressed Wedding Guest

By Nicelise
It's finally spring. After this brutal Northeast winter, I thought this season would never blossom. With this warming season comes another season: wedding season. That means not only do we need to go wedding gift and card shopping, but also dress shopping. Here are some great, affordable dresses you'll look great in this season.
Be the Best Dressed Wedding GuestThis off-the-shoulder dress from H&M ($17.95) is a twist on wearing a LDB with its bold print. Dress this look up with some statement earrings, nude or blush-colored pumps and a bold colored clutch. I personally think Kelly green or cobalt blue would be great colors to add to this look.
Be the Best Dressed Wedding GuestI'm obsessed with this "Give me a Bustier" indigo blue dress from ($38). This dress would look great with a chunky bib necklace and nude pumps. Bauble Bar's tiered gem collar or crystal firecracker bib are both amazing options for this dress. Even though they cost more than the actual dress, these necklaces are great to dress up other dresses you may wear for weddings or even to a blazer and jeans for a business casual look for work.
Be the Best Dressed Wedding GuestAfter going to six, yes six, weddings last summer, I noticed how many people wore black to each occasion. This dress ($49), also from, is an amazing magenta color that is sure to help you stand out in the crowd. I have this dress in cobalt blue and I can tell you that it's very comfortable while also flattering and slimming to most figures. I would pair nude pumps with this dress and maybe even a turquoise necklace to add another pop of color to your look.
Be the Best Dressed Wedding GuestPaint the town red in this Sparkle & Fade mesh inset high-neck skater dress ($59) from Urban Outfitters. This is a super flattering dress to many figures and it will never go out of style. I would style this dress with crystal drop earrings and a bold red lip. These spaceship coupe drop earrings or crystal quad drops from Bauble Bar would pair perfectly. I would also suggest pulling your hair up to show off the unique neckline.
Be the Best Dressed Wedding GuestThis knit midi sheath dress from Express ($49.90) is a versatile wedding option. I would argue that you could get away with wearing this same dress for all most all of the weddings you have this season. Just change up your accessories, hairstyle and makeup and you'll look like you're wearing a different dress at each event. If you're short like me, I suggest wearing nude or blush colored heels with this frock to elongate your legs, especially with where this dress will hit your legs. 
Be the Best Dressed Wedding GuestI've never been a huge fan of short rompers, but I love this jumpsuit as an unconventional option for a wedding. You definitely need to accessorize this Express jumpsuit ($88) well to make sure you don't look too casual. For shoes, I would go with what the model has on here -- black pumps. I think nude would look good too, but I would not pair heels with ankle straps with this since they will cut off your legs just below the hem line, making your legs appear short. I think a statement bib necklace or a long pendant necklace would pair nicely with this jumpsuit. Bauble Bar's bold beaded strands in any color or Vermeer pearl pendant would both look great. I would also recommend curling your hair or doing a type of up-do to make sure you look dressy enough.
