Shopping for wedding dresses as a guest is one of the most difficult things on the planet. You know it’s true. Sure, there are millions of dresses to choose from in high street shops, designer shops and some that can even be found online – but that’s exactly the problem. There are just too many to choose from! With all different shapes, styles, and colours to choose from, you can often feel overwhelmed by the choice… and the prices. Yep, as soon as you utter the word ‘wedding’ everything doubles in price, which isn’t great if you’re looking for a purse-friendly wedding guest dress. Luckily, there are shops where you can find cheap guest wedding dresses that certainly don’t look cheap.
Let’s be honest, Debenhams is a wedding haven. Not only can grooms buy their suits from this department store, but bridesmaids can also find their dream dresses underneath their roofs, and wedding guests can also find the perfect dresses! Is there anything they don’t sell? We don’t think so. One of the main reasons why Debenhams is so popular with the happy couple and their friends and family is because Debenhams is about 100 shops in one. With countless brands under one roof, wedding guests can have their pick from brands such as Chi Chi London, Curvy Kate, Dorothy Perkins, Lipsy, Monsoon, Pretty Polly or even Versace. As well as offering all of these options, Debenhams also offer competitive prices, which means it is perfect for budget wedding guest dresses.
If you love to pretend that you’re living the high life without the extra zeros in your bank account (do minus zeros count?), we can guarantee that you’ll love TK Maxx and all of the budget guest wedding dresses you’ll be able to find within their walls. With a claim that you’ll be able to ‘Explore big brands at small prices,’ TK Maxx offers you the chance to snap up designer labels at half the price. While they mostly sell last season’s clothing, the shops do also tend to house this season’s designer wear under their roofs… if you can find them fast enough. You can normally find a TK Maxx near you, but you can also shop online if you’re looking for something more specific.
If you’re looking for something sleek, sophisticated, and befitting your age as a wedding guest, we will bet you £5 that you’ll be able to find something with the racks of Next shops. Known for producing high-quality clothing at affordable prices, Next pride themselves on the design and the aesthetic of all of their dresses. If you’re looking for a mini-dress or a bodysuit, we’d advise shopping elsewhere – because Next offer customers beautifully-constructed dresses that compliment and flatter women of all sizes for events, night outs and weddings. You can search in store, or you can search the dedicated Dresses For Wedding section on their website.
Don’t be fooled; Boohoo won’t make you cry – unless you start crying with joy at the cheap guest wedding dresses they sell. As an online retailer, Boohoo are a clothing company that offers everything from workout clothes and pyjamas to going out dresses and wedding guest dresses. While they do cater for a younger audience, you can scout their website to find dresses befitting any age or size. The best part? Boohoo wedding guest dresses are super cheap and won’t cost you the earth.
Buying second-hand clothes isn’t for everyone, but if you are into it, you’ll know just how incredible eBay can be. If you’re very specific with your taste, love vintage clothing or love something completely unique, it’s always a good idea to look on eBay to see what people are selling. Rather than rocking up to the wedding with the same dress as three other women, you will look completely original – with a few spare pounds to spend at the bar!
It’s super easy to find purse-friendly guest wedding dresses if you know where to look – and you don’t need to look any further! We’ve got all of the information you could possibly need.
Well, hi there! Thanks for dropping by, earthlings. While I am a writer by trade I like to pride myself on my other quirks. I can rap all of the lyrics to Kanye West’s ‘Homecoming,’ I can eat a whole packet of Oreos in record time, and I can lick my elbow. Oh, I’m also a stickler for luuuuuurve…
