Dropping hundreds of dollars on a dress to wear, to a wedding, is not always feasible — especially if you have several soirees lined up for the year. Luckily, you don’t have to sacrifice style for price because there are plenty of budget-friendly options out there. Whether you are in search of a classic midi or a showstopping gown, you can find tons of looks that all fall under-$100.

Not sure where to start? Lulus and Revolve both have a wide variety of budget-friendly frocks, from black-tie gowns to mini dresses. Keep in mind, though, that you don’t have to shy away from brands that fall on the pricer side. If you plan ahead, you can find a few deals and snag a pricer dress that’s extremely marked down. 

To help you begin your search, we’ve put together 24 of our favorite dresses under $100 that will fit any wedding dress code

FAQ
  • Can you find a wedding guest dress under-$100 that is good quality?

    Absolutely! Price does not always dictate the quality of a dress, and there are plenty of high-quality gowns that are affordable. When searching for a look under-$100, just be sure to read the reviews and confirm you won’t run into any issues with thin fabric or pulls at the seams.

  • How can I style my dress to look more formal?

    The way you style your dress can completely transform your overall look. A seemingly plain and casual dress can suddenly become dressy and formal with the right accessories. For a more formal look, consider adding shoulder-grazing earrings or a pair of statement heels.

  • How do I know if the wedding I’m attending has a dress code?

    Typically, invitations will provide the dress code for the evening. But if you're not exactly clear on what to wear, try checking in with the couple before you go ahead and buy a look. You can also get a vibe of the occasion by looking at the venue, taking into consideration the season of the wedding, and checking with other guests on what they plan to wear.
