Dresses Under $100 to Wear to Every Type of Wedding

If you have a wedding coming up, chances are you're on the lookout for the perfect dress. As a guest, it's important to stick to the dress code and not outdo the bride (aka don't wear white).

As for other color options, be sure to keep the time of day and month of the wedding in mind. Spring and summer weddings are the perfect time to wear fun, bright colors and prints, while fall and winter weddings should be full of darker, more neutral colors.

We've broken down the rules for each type of wedding below (not all dress codes are the same!), and have included some dresses under $100 that are sure to turn heads.

White Tie:

Chances are you're not going to a white tie wedding, but if you are, prepare to get fancy! You'll be expected to wear a ballgown (yes, you read that right) paired with elegant accessories.

Pretty Little Thing Black Cross Back High Neck Maxi Dress: $45

Black Tie:

Black tie weddings give you an excuse to get all dolled up, and can be a lot of fun. If long dresses aren't your thing, feel free to wear a sophisticated cocktail dress. However, if you really want to wow everyone, find a beautiful floor-length dress.

NBD Dusk Til Dawn Gown: $96

Formal:

Formal attire is more laid-back than black tie because you have more options to choose from. Go for a simple floor-length dress, cocktail dress or even a nice jumpsuit.

Tobi Fall Back Pewter Satin Jumpsuit: $49

Cocktail:

Expect to see lots of cocktail dresses paired with heels. If you want to keep your look understated, opt for a skirt and a fun pair of wedges. It's always fun to add in a pop of color with your shoes, purse, jewelry, etc.

Casual:

"Casual" does not mean jeans, but it does mean you get to rock a flirty summer-style dress. Pair your dress with wedges or elegant flats and you'll nail the casual look.

Beach:

Since you'll be walking in the sand, stick to a pair of shoes that are easy to walk in, like a nice pair of sandals or casual wedges. For the dress, think tropical and vacation vibes.
