It’s that time again! With Memorial Day around the corner, Chicagoans are finally able to see the light at the end of this cold weather tunnel. So to speak. That means weekends filled with wedding and wedding related events. So here is my summer wedding dress guide for every price point and style!

This series has been one of my most popular series (see here for my fall and spring wedding dress guide) and it makes me incredibly happy to see how excited you guys get about dresses. Generally speaking, I love a good dress but wedding guest dresses are a step above the rest. They come with the promise of celebrating love and who doesn’t love that? Unless you’re a Grinch, you do. PS, if you’ve been wondering what our wedding looked like, you can check out a few posts here, here, and here.


My favorite dress in this category is this little fit and flare dress. It comes in a bunch of colors so if mint isn’t your cup of tea, try the black or the red! If you’re looking for a more affordable off the shoulder, try this one. If you’re on a budget, it’s perfect.


If you’re looking for a showstopper, this red embroidered dress is at the top of my summer wedding dresses list. It’s on sale too so you know you’re getting a deal! This ruffled off the shoulder dress comes in 6 colors and they all make great options to style multiple ways.


This printed maxi is still one of my absolute favorites. I can’t believe it’s under $100! It looks like such great quality. Another favorite is this red ruffled Topshop dress. The back is stunning – literally stunning!


Show Me Your Mumu dresses are my favorite in this category. They are the absolute best quality and almost every single one comes in several colors. This palm printed maxi is fabulous! This one and this one are great for wedding guests but also for bridesmaids!


This black jumpsuit has to make the list. You can wear it to so many things! Plus it’s under $100!

Once you found the perfect dress, chances are you might want to refresh your accessories. These are some of the best wedding guest outfit accessories I have found. The best part is that you can wear all of them again and again year round. They make such great neutrals that I find myself reaching for these pieces (or pieces just like them) more often than I thought I would!

Do you have any summer weddings on the calendar this year? Where are you headed? I want to hear!
