Just try to not look better than the bride.

Summer means wedding season, and while it’s great to see friends and relatives on the happiest day of their lives, sometimes worrying about what you’re going to wear can be a bit stressful – especially if you have multiple events to attend!

Shopping for a dress to wear to a wedding can also be difficult because you don’t want to wear white (a popular color for summer dresses) and you don’t want to be mistaken for a bridesmaid, either. The key is finding dresses that are comfortable, cool, and elegant – and that you’ll want to wear again even after the reception is over.

Here are some great finds under $50 that will look fabulous at any summer wedding:

This dress is both elegant and perfect for accessorizing with a knock-out necklace. It comes in several colors, though this earth-tone works best for all types of occasions. After all, you don’t want to upstage the bride!

Light, airy, and romantic — this is the perfect dress for nude heels and accessorizing. Depending on the wedding and your personal style, you can go all out with pearls, or keep it casual and funky with some turquoise or gold jewelry. FYI: ModCloth is a great place to find dresses for more funky, vintage style weddings.

Flounce Ruffle Dress with Belt, $19.80, from Forever21

What’s great about this dress is that it will keep you cool, and it’s elegant enough to be worn with black heels. The belt gives it a dressy edge, but it’s fun enough so that you can wear it again. 

What makes this dress gorgeous and dressy enough for the wedding is the elegant purple color and the broach. You won’t need to worry about accessorizing too much, but some jeweled, dangly earrings are a must for this get-up.
This dress is a great find for two reasons – it comes in eight colors, and it’s super comfortable and breathable. So it’s great for dancing and for an outdoor reception on a hot day. Pair this with strappy heels for a great summer look.

Even if you have multiple weddings to attend this summer, it doesn’t mean you should be worrying up a storm over what to wear. There are plenty of great options out there that are both elegant and easy on your wallet.
