Spring is fast approaching which can only mean one thing – the arrival of wedding season! There is nothing like a great wedding – and dressing up for a wedding is one of the most exciting parts. Getting your outfit just right can be quite a difficult task – you don't want anything too attention-grabbing – it is the bride's day after all. But, you still want to wear something which is extra special and will look fabulous in all the post-pictures, as well as something that will make you feel like a million pounds. Weddings tend to last for a fair few hours; so comfort really is key. There is nothing worse than having to wear a dress all day that is too tight, or just doesn't feel right. We have rounded up the very best wedding guest dressesfor under £100. If pastels are your thing – or maybe you prefer a bit of lace – keep clicking through to find a dreamy number which won’t break the bank.
Clean lines and classic cuts are always a winner – and this beautiful number from ZARA is the type of design that can be dressed up and down. The sugary pastel pink is a great shade for a summer wedding and the ruching at the waist, together with the graduated hem means it will give you a sleek sillouette in seconds.
Gold and muted buttery tones are super flattering and look particularly glamorous with a tan. This ruffled dress finishes just above the knee and has an asymmetrical shoulder detail. Its simple cut means it can be accessorised up or down – we think adding a pair of neon tassel earrings would give it a bohemian edge.
Prints always pack a punch and Miss Selfridge have nailed two trends in one with this dress – tiered ruffles and of course, a blooming lovely selection of florals emblazoned on the top. The periwinkle blue hue is soft and subtle and would work on any skin tones. Dainty gold jewellery and an added corsage would give all you all the flower power.
£49, Miss Selfridge
This beautiful lilac-toned calf-length dress has a flattering V-neckline and narrow, adjustable straps. The guipure lace detail gives the design a totally ethereal look and is a dead ringer for Self-Portrait's iconic dress. Wear with a pair of nude strappy sandals and hit the dance floor.
Mint green is the unofficial colour of weddings – and this sensational pencil dress rom Phase Eight is the kind of design that you could re-cycle time and time again. With its cap sleeves and lace overlay – it has a formal nod and nude high heel court shoes would give it a classic edge.
£75, Phase Eight at John Lewis
If you are the kinda gal that has a thing for florals – this stunning embroidered maxi dress would be right up your street. It features a fitted bodice, a dramatic maxi skirt, tulle lining and the intricate embroidery is out of this world pretty.
£99, Chi Chi London
Colour blocking is a fail-safe formula to ensuring that you stand out and look instantly presentable. We love this fuchsia pink, A-line style number from Oasis. It is cut in a prom-style finish which hides a multitude of sins and gives a symmetrical shape. The timeless satin material gives a polished feel to your look and a funky clutch and statement necklace is all you would need to amp it up.
This dazzling white and amber striped design is such a bold yet not overpowering frock which would suit a variety of shapes. The nipped-in waist detail will flatter curves, whilst the ruffle hemline give sit a flirty stance. It has John Galliano written all over it and a splash of red lipstick would really set it off.
