30 Best Summer Wedding Guest Dresses For Every Style And Setting In 2023

You hear that? Those are wedding bells in the not-so-distant future and it's so exciting to hear them again.

After many brides and grooms put their weddings on hold during the height of the pandemic over the last three years, it seems like wedding season is back once again — new variants permitting, of course.

Plus, a summer wedding could mean an outdoor occasion, perfect for a socially distanced affair and breezy, beautiful dresses and decor, or an indoor soirée with twinkle lights and a dance floor.

If you're not one of the lucky few who have their outfits already pre-determined, you'll need to start looking for the perfect dress to wear to the reception that makes you look and feel amazing — while not upstaging the bride, of course.

From long flowy dresses to shorter stylish sundresses, here are our favorite outfits for wedding season 2023.

1. ASOS Design Wrap Front Tie Back Midi Dress, $27, original price: $55 © Provided by New York Post ASOS

That's a wrap — this is your dream dress.

From ASOS, this mint green dress is a cute yet simple way to stun at any wedding, with an adorable bow detail on the back for some added flair. The front has a classic V-neck, easily dressed up with a sparkling necklace or a pair of dangling earrings. The dress ranges in size from 0 to 12 and can be tied tighter or looser from the back.

ASOS 2. Baltic Born Holly Satin Maxi Dress, $41, original price: $72 © Provided by New York Post Baltic Born

For a long-sleeve look, check out this stunning number from Baltic Born. We love the satin finish that looks super luxe, without a crazy price tag. Get one in all three colors to wear to all the weddings you have lined up.

Baltic Born 3. Windsor Londyn Formal High Slit Convertible Dress, $50 © Provided by New York Post Windsor

Long sleeves when you want them and a halter when you don't. This dress really can do both, and in a stunning silky fabric that is perfect for weddings. Wear it with sleeves for a more modest and warmer look in the evening, or draped in a halter top with a deep V for a sexy look.

Windsor 4. Abercrombie Satin Pleated Cutout Maxi Dress, $150 © Provided by New York Post Abercrombie

This flowing silky dress is a showstopper for any summer wedding, coming in a bouquet of bright colors. It is part of Abercrombie and Fitch's new Best Dressed Guest Collection, which is an online exclusive selection of wedding attire for both him and her.

Why should only the groomsmen get to wear the tuxedos? Dress up your look with this tuxedo-inspired dress from designer Adrianna Papell. It adds a bit of a masculine edge to your look, allowing you to wear it as a dress or over tights for colder weather ceremonies.

Sold at Free People, this jumpsuit is perfect for dancing at the reception, as your legs are free to kick and twirl. Pair with a jacket during the colder months and strappy sandals for when it gets warm.

Free People 7. Lulu's Garden Meandering Blush Floral Print Maxi Dress, $94, original price: $99 © Provided by New York Post Lulu's

Leave the bouquet to the bride, these flowers are all you need.

Lulu's has a plethora of wedding guest dresses, but this one is one of our favorites. The rose pattern is timeless and matches any hair color and choice of shoe. The billowing fabric will look great for an outdoor wedding, just bear in mind the high slit up the leg when the wind blows. It comes in the pictured pink color as well as a purple pattern with different flowers but the same silhouette.

The light blue, creme or red dress is sold on Revolve, made by superdown. We recommend checking out quickly, as sizes are selling out fast. We didn't expect any less, as the flattering waistline and flirty above-the-knee slit make for a stunning wedding guest every time.

Revolve 9. Reformation Juliet Dress, $248 © Provided by New York Post Reformation

The bride may be marrying her Romeo, but you can look as beautiful as Juliet in this emerald green frock.

Sold at Reformation, the Juliet dress is a classic and a bestseller on the site. The jewel-tone dress is one of our favorites, but it also comes in a wide variety of other colors and patterns including red, ivory and black as well as floral and animal print.

Reformation 10. Kay Unger Davina Maxi Romper, $308 © Provided by New York Post Nordstrom

Business in the front, party in the back. This dress really does both, as from the back it looks like your typical maxi dress, but turn around and show off your legs in the pants that are attached underneath for the coolest jumpsuit we've seen in 2023.

Nordstrom 11. Romwe Women's Cute Tie Back Ruffle Strap Dress, $36 © Provided by New York Post Amazon

20 Affordable Wedding Guest Dresses That Look So Luxurious

"Hearst Magazines and Yahoo may earn commission or revenue on some items through these links."

Stylish and affordable wedding guest dresses might seem hard to come by, but options abound for all tastes, venues, and dress codes. Before diving into the sea of high-street options (which can easily overwhelm), stylist Elise Sandvik says to start the shopping process by considering the location and season. "A wedding at the beach might require different dress and accessory choices than one in the city, and this information will help decide what kind of fabric quality, silhouette, and color or print will be the most appropriate choice," she tells BAZAAR.

Another tip: stay authentic to your style and consider longevity with an affordable wedding guest dress. Although a super specific look or trend feels easier to buy on impulse at a lower price point, the stylist says, "[a dress] that you can see yourself in, get a lot of wear out of, and that can be styled in multiple ways," is best.

Of course, "affordable" is subjective. Sandvik points to several brands offering quality at various prices to start your search. "Mango, Tiger Mist, and Princess Polly are alternatives to popular stores like Zara and H&M," she says—all great choices to lessen the risk of showing up in the same dress as other guests. For a little bit more, the stylist recommends Norma Kamali and & Other Stories for a wide range of colors and sizes. Then at Rotate Birger Christensen, "the brand puts a twist on many of the classic dress shapes and makes them playful," she adds.

Even when your dress is the focus, accessories are a great way to elevate the effect. "A great way to accessorize an affordable dress is to pair it with beautiful jewelry, shoes, and a handbag," Sandvik elaborates. "A pop of color on the shoes and handbag always gives life to an outfit."

From simple and classic to directional and bold, scroll to discover the 20 best affordable wedding guest dresses, including Sandvik-approved picks and styles with rave shopper reviews.
