I have 7 weddings () to go to this year (sadly, none are my own) and I need some inspo.
–What are your favorite stores/boutiques/shops/sites for find dresses for weddings (as a regular ol’ attending human, not in the wedding)?
Bonus question: Do you re-wear dresses to multiple weddings?

You might be surprised to hear but… Amazon. They have amazing dresses for deep discounts. Key is to look for dresses with good reviews and even better when there are photos of others wearing the dress. Plus with Prime you get free returns on all prime purchases.
I sometimes rewear dresses to weddings depending on how many of the same people are going that were at the last wedding I wore the dress to. I usually wear them to work after the wedding if it wasn’t formal.

I love revolve and shopbop. If I had that many weddings to go to in one summer I am sure that I would re-wear some if the crowds didn’t overlap too much (ex a friend’s wedding and then a family member’s wedding).

ModCloth. I have so many dresses from there it isn’t funny.

I really like New York Dress they have a huge selection and I have never had an issue with them. I ordered all of our bridal party dresses from them online and everything turned out great

Rent the Runway. I’ve had so much success with them and get to wear a new (and usually high end designer) dress to every wedding!

morethanyesterday : I don’t tend to shop specifically for weddings as I have loads of suitable dresses. My favourites though are LK Bennett and Coast.

I tend to try Nordstrom first, they are pretty fantastic about tracking down different sizes and their alterations team is pretty good.
If they’re not too close together and do not have a lot of guest overlap I’ll definitely repeat a dress.

Another vote for Revolve and Shopbop. I buy all my clothing from there. Occasionally I’ll check Reiss and LK Bennett

I usually get dresses from Dressbarn or Macy’s. My two go-tos. I ahve re-worn dresses to weddings, but I try to not repeat them with the same guests within a short period of time. So, I’ll wear a dress to a wedding of a cousin and then to a wedding of a friend because there are different guests, but I might wear it to another family wedding down the line.

Revolve sale selection is dope! Zara, when I can afford to buy accessories or shoes too, Lulu’s, ASOS, and Bloomingdales’ house line Aqua may surprise you. I re-wear dresses if it’s not the same crowd or a diff season.
For black tie, I invested in a navy blue calf-length A-line with a poofy skirt from Nordstrom. For $130, it felf better to have a dress for all seasons, outdoor or indoor events, than needing to rent one at that cost every time.
