the best summer wedding guest dresses for every budget


Best Summer Wedding Guest Dresses | The Style Scribe

It’s that time of year again! Wedding season is in full swing at this point, and I’d bet most of you have one coming up. I just went to one a couple weeks back, and I sported this gold Rubin Singer number I found on sale at Neiman Marcus over the holidays! I couldn’t afford to buy it at the time because of all the house stuff I was paying for, but my sweet grandmother found out and surprised me with it for Christmas! I was so excited to finally have an occasion to wear it with the wedding two weeks ago. I will NEVER get rid of this dress – it’s a work of art. While my dress is no longer available to shop, I thought this would be a great time to share some of my favorite wedding guest dresses for summer at every price point. Scroll down to shop them all!

  • Here’s another fab cocktail dress in the gold/beige/neutral fam.

  • For a more casual wedding, try this Rebecca Taylor piece. An item you could definitely wear again a bunch post-wedding!
  • This one is another dress I tried on in person and it is so beautiful! I only returned it because it was too big and I didn’t have time to order another before my trip. The fabric is beautiful though!
  • This pink tiered strapless dress is definitely party ready.
  • Love this one-shoulder silhouette!
  • The print and color scheme on this Saloni dress is so pretty!
  • This pink gown is 30% off, but there’s only a size IT36 left!
  • Obsessed with this gold look! The sequin embellishments and tiered ruffles give it all the red carpet vibes.
