At most weddings I’ve been to, guests dress pretty formally, so I don’t know that you need to rule out long dresses more formal than a maxi dress. Just make sure you don’t wear the same color.

yogabride2018 :  I’ve order from them several times, haven’t had a problem yet. Their chiffon can run a little thin, but you get what you pay for.

I think black is the best color for a dress that you will wear through different seasons. With that in mind, you could consider options such as these:

From Asos:

From Zara:

From Mango:

Most of the dresses in PP I would wear on a regular day, not a wedding. Maybe our weddings are fancier? Who knows…

I usually spend alot, but I wore this gown to a wedding this year. Received SO many compliments – everyone thought it was a designer because most of my dresses are, but this was from Windsor! 😂😂 $50 no slits, flattering and stunning! No gloves nor tiara of course.

Lulu’s has cute stuff online, but their quality is lacking at times and some items run very small.

What about a maxi skirt? That way you can change the top to suit the time of year. I got this skirt from Asos and paired it with a black lace crop top for a wedding we went to. It also looks great with a pale cami top too for spring/summer.
