The date is set. The RSVPs are in. The wedding bells are ready to ring. It all can only mean one thing: You need a stunning wedding guest dress. You need one that will celebrate your curves, too.
Sure, you’re not the bride, but that doesn’t mean you can’t dress to impress when you’re a wedding guest. And that’s especially true now! Spring and summer weddings are, well, special. There’s something undeniably charming about the breezy fabrics and bold colors of spring and summer dressing. Add that to a formal event where romance is in the air and you have a recipe for ethereal bliss.
And that’s not to mention the ability to finally leave that epic winter coat at home, letting your look take center stage. That’s a bliss all of its own.
The spring and summer months are prime wedding time, meaning you may have one, two, three or more (!!!) weddings on the calendar. But don’t panic — to take some of the stress (and cost) out of shopping for the perfect wedding-approved guest dress, check out these nine plus-size wedding guest dresses for less than $100. They’re bright, billowy, beautiful and will totally embrace your body size. You can even wear your favorite to multiple weddings. We’ll never tell.
