Winter weddings are festive and romantic, but as a guest, the chilly weather can be challenging to dress for. You want to look your absolute best without risking frostbite, plus, the holiday season is a spendy time of year, so even better if you can find a gorgeous wedding guest dress that doesn’t cost a fortune.

Luckily, there are plenty of options when it comes to finding a show-stopping wedding guest dress to fit your budget, from head-turning allover sequins to warm and luxe crushed velvet. To stay warm — especially for a breathtaking but frigid outdoor ceremony — sleeves are generally a go-to. If you're looking for a refreshing take on winter wedding guest style, punchy colors and prints are an unexpected approach. We absolutely adore holiday shades, jewel tones, and metallic fabrics, but if you’re in the mood for something different, wintry floral prints or bold colors like bright red and burnt orange or a soft shade of blush is stunning in a cold-weather setting.

Whether you’re craving something ultra-festive, totally timeless, or a little bit trendy, ahead we’ve found the best winter wedding guest dresses that are all under $100.
