What to Wear to A Summer Wedding: Budget-Friendly Picks for A Beachy, Formal or Casual Affair

3 Wedding Guest Looks: Beach, Formal or Casual

Weddings are by far one of my favorite parts of summer for many reasons, and dressing-up definitely tops that list. No two wedding are ever the same, which means guests can have fun creating distinct looks for each unique celebration, whether it's a beachy/outdoor setting, a casual fete or a more formal party. But shopping for multiple weddings can start to get costly, which is why I've rounded up budget-friendly dresses and shoes under $100 (and many under $50!) to help make the process a little bit easier, and every bit as glamorous.
