Got a summer wedding to go to but don’t know what to wear yet? Our top 8 guide could help.
If you’ve been invited to a wedding this summer but have no idea what to wear, don’t worry, we’ve picked eight dresses that will have you feeling like the belle of the ball – no matter what type of wedding you’re going to! So without further ado, let’s jump into the budget-friendly dresses that we’ve found:
1. Bohemian Rhapsody
If you’re heading to an outdoor wedding this summer, then look no further than this beautiful printed gown from H&M. The intricate print of this dress gives it a floaty, bohemian feel so dig out your wedges and you’ll be party-ready within seconds. Not bad for £29.99, right?
2. Get graphic
Of course, no wedding guest wants to take the attention away from the bride on her big day but there’s no reason why you can’t still make a statement with your choice of dress.This graphic print dress from H&M will really capture people’s attention and look stylish when paired with minimal accessories and heels!
Two-piece outfits can look just as nice as a dress and you can have a little more fun creating these too, so why not opt for a bit of DIY when it comes to your wedding outfit this summer? High waisted full skirts like this from H&M are everywhere at the moment, so why not match this pale pink one with a patterned top like this? Although this outfit totals £40, these pieces are items that you’ll be able to re-wear again and again!
4. Beach ready
If you’re heading off to a destination wedding this summer, you should look to wear something a little more breathable to the ceremony. You may have a holiday dress at home that would be appropriate, or you could pick up something like this printed maxi dress from Primark which we think would be ideal for a picturesque beach setting!
5. Jumpsuit rebel
Ok, so we know this next one isn’t exactly a dress but a jumpsuit can be a stylish alternative to a frock so we’re going to include one anyway! This orange jumpsuit from New Look is only £19.99 and if you pair it with a statement necklace and killer heels, you’ll be well on your way to creating an elegant look!
6. Flower power
When you think of a summer wedding, you can’t help but think of floral prints, so why not opt for something like this floral print dress from F&F at Tesco? This dress incorporates two of our favourite trends, floral prints and pastel tones – what more could a girl ask for?
7. Colour explosion
If you’re not afraid to embrace a bit of colour, then opting for a bright bold dress could be the way to go this wedding season. Something like this tangerine skater dress from H&M would be ideal, just keep your accessories simple and you’ll be bound to get plenty of compliments!
8. Little Black Dress
Ok, so we know an LBD isn’t the most summery of dresses but it could make for a chic look if you’re only going for the night do? This floor length maxi dress from Tesco is very elegant and you can always pair it with a statement necklace and a bold clutch bag if you’re wanting to break up the black – not bad for just £25, eh?
