Looking for the perfect affordable wedding guest dresses for a winter, fall, spring, or blazing hot summer wedding?

You never quite know what to wear to a wedding…

Finding the perfect wedding guest dress can be a challenge, especially if you live somewhere where the four seasons truly make a difference to what you need to wear to be comfortable.

Most of us grab a dress from a store in the last few weeks leading up to the wedding, which often leads to multiple guests with the same dress!

To avoid that, choose from one of the best affordable wedding guest dresses we’ve found online.

The best part? Every wedding guest dress we’ve found is under $50! And that includes shipping, too.

What dresses can a guest wear to a wedding?

Don’t overthink it, but if you are worried that it looks too much like something the bride, bridesmaids, or someone on the red carpet would wear, move on. Also try to avoid dresses that show a lot of skin, unless it is a summer wedding in a very warm location.

What guest dress colors aren’t appropriate to wear to a wedding?

White! It’s best to avoid white, nudes, beige, champagne, browns and blacks. It is also common to avoid red dresses, unless the event is planned to be festive and colorful.
