What to Wear as a Guest to a Wedding Without Breaking The Bank

Are you at that point in your life when you have numerous weddings this time of year? My friends and I are just getting to that point and I realized I was in need of a few new dresses to sport at these events. The only problem is my wallet doesn't agree. Today, I am sharing my top 3 secrets on what I wear as a Wedding Guest without breaking the bank. 









Dress  (Exact- on sale!) // Shoes (Similar & Cute Flats) // Bag (Similar- Ordering for myself) // Necklace (Exact) // Rings (Exact) // Earrings (Similar)

My first secret is: I re-wear dresses. YES, I said that. More often than not the guests at the weddings are not the same and the weddings are far enough apart that the photos will not appear to close to each other in your Facebook photos. Sadly, we all do it. So, my first tip is to repeat a dress. And why not? I buy the dress because I love it and usually enjoy wearing it!

My second secret is: For weddings that are too close to each other, say the same weekend or a week apart, bargain hunt! I found this gorgeous all over lace dress from Madewell on the clearance rack & the best part it was an extra 50% off in stores. I walked out with an elegant, classic & totally me dress for $35! YES, you read that right! 

My third secret is: keep accessories to a minimal. Typically, less is more, is not my jam. But for weddings I take a page out of Kate Middleton's style book and pick simple and dainty accessories to accent my look. Of course, I love a little bling so simple accessories help my shoes to pop!

  23. I need to stop following you on Insta because I'm going to be poor. This dress is now sitting in my Madewell cart in both blue AND black. UGHHHH! :) Also, I'm basically obsessed with these heels and wish we lived closer because I would totally come over and borrow them!

  26. On wedding day, I had a complimentary attendant, who was helpful in getting my husband and myself champagne, and she also made sure that we were eating. I gave my heartfelt appreciation to the staff at NYC wedding venues for their tremendous effort in making our day the most special day of our lives.
