    1. A flowy, floral, split-front boho dress that will make you feel like you're at a beachfront wedding (even if you're in a backyard in Topeka).

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I wore this to an outdoor wedding on a hot day and it could not have been more perfect. I initially ordered this dress in XL but had to return it for an XXL. It does run smaller than you think. It came wrinkled (of course), but with a very, very light ironing, it was an easy fix. Even though I had to go up sizes, it was not too long for my 5'5". While the fabric is perfect because it is so light, it is see-through, so I had to wear a slip with it. It was comfortable to wear all day and looked great in pictures because it was so flowy. To be honest, I'm trying to resist buying the same dress in every color. I love it!" —Sherie W.

    Price: $29.99+ (available in sizes XS-XXL and in nine colors/ patterns).

    2. A sleeveless V-neck swing dress that comes in 43 colors, twirls beautifully, and — perhaps most importantly — is cut high in the back, so you don't have to spend all night tugging at your strapless bra.

    Promising review: "This dress was a last-minute purchase for my cousin's wedding and it was beautiful! It fit great and I got lots of compliments all night. It was easy to dance in. The fabric is heavy enough that it didn't wrinkle in my bag traveling to the wedding, and it does not show undergarments. Loved being able to wear a normal bra under a dress to a wedding. Would buy again in other colors, and will definitely be wearing this one again!" —Smc6288

    Price: $25.99+ (available in sizes XS-24 and 32 colors and fabrics)

    3. A deep-V faux-wrap dress with a roomy bust area, so if you struggle to find something that's formal but also feels comfy around your chest, you have just met your Dress of Honor.

    Promising review: "I bought this for my little brother's wedding and it was very pretty but more importantly...SO COMFY! Now it's in the church outfit rotation." —Katy Perdue

    Price: $19.90+ (available in sizes S-XL and 24 colors)

    4. A shirtdress with flutter sleeves that will be your BFF during mid-day outdoor weddings and Instagram-worthy trips to the farmer's market.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "Love this dress! I am usually a size 12, but the large was for a 10-12. To be safe, I ordered an XL which fits a size 14, and it fit perfectly! I wore it to a wedding and got lots of compliments. I am 5’5” and this hit about two inches below the knee. Buttons stayed closed and no gaps at the bust. The material has a little give but keeps it shape. Thinking of buying again in different colors!" —Yoli D.

    Price: $27.99+ (available in sizes S-XL and 15 colors)

    5. A vintage-style halter dress that is literally *begging* you to twirl around in it on the dance floor. BEGGING! Plus, it has a corset back, so you can adjust the the dress's tightness around the waist area.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I am so very happy with this dress. I wore it to a friend's wedding and got so many compliments! It fits as expected per the size chart, but since the back is ruched elastic with a corset-type tie, you can adjust this to your liking. I had to cinch it pretty tight to keep it from sliding down my back (maybe some fabric tape would help). That said, I would NOT size down, as then it wouldn't fit in the waist. This dress offers great coverage in the back despite being a halter (I am weary of halter tops as they seem to have absurdly low backs, but not this one). I did wear this dress with a petticoat, but it can be worn without. It is well-made and a good medium-thick material, but still breathable for warmer weather. For reference, I am 5'6", 245 lbs with a 46DD bust, 42" waist, and 47" hip." —Lauren R.

    Price: $16.99+ (available in sizes S-3XL and 45 colors and patterns)

    6. A dot-print faux-wrap with sheer sleeves, for folks who are ready to be cuter than the cake (not that it's a contest! But if it was, this dress would win).

    Promising review: "Bought for a fall wedding and got lots of compliments! Perfect length, great fabric quality and fit true to size. I am busty and was worried about the wrap design up top, but it fit perfectly!" —Chandler Goolsby

    Price: $35.99+ (available in sizes S-XL and eight colors)

    7. A three-quarter sleeve midi fit and flare dress that has pockets, aka the Holy Grail of formal dresses.

    Promising review: "I purchased this as a last-minute dress for a wedding. It was snug above the waist, but not snug enough where I was uncomfortable or have no movement. It fit perfectly!! I’m 5’3” and weigh 160. The medium was perfect for me! The material is not cheap, it’s a nice, soft material, and you can have confidence it won’t fall apart in the washer or anything! Love it. I’ll probably buy another one in a different pattern." —Liz Garcia

    Price: $25.99+ (available in sizes S-XXL and 13 patterns)

    8. A chiffon V-neck with cold shoulder cut-outs that will make you look awesome all night, even when you're doing the electric slide.

    Promising review: "I loved this dress. Wore it to a wedding recently and it was perfect. I ordered a large and it fit well. Could be a little short on anyone over 5’7."" —Amazon Customer

    Promising review: "I bought this dress to wear for my brother’s wedding and it did not disappoint! I wore it all day, as I ran around organizing, and it was so comfortable. The pockets were amazing and the material is so soft! I would definitely buy one of these dresses again!" —Callie

    Price: $29.99+ (available in sizes S-XXL and 26 patterns)

    10. A flowy, sleeveless column dress that's so cute, it basically deserves its own receiving line.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "Bought this dress for a summer wedding. It fits perfectly! Just a little long, but with heels, it will be fine. I like the material — soft, light and comfortable. You can wear it casual or dressy with jewelry. I am adding sandals with a mid-heel for the length. I am 5'9 so if you are shorter, you may need to have it hemmed. It is worth it!" —DLF

    Price: $49.95 (available in sizes XS-4XL and 23 colors)

    11. A faux wrap dress with a V-neck, tie waist and lantern sleeves, because this wedding season is gonna be a looooong one, so you might as well get a totally versatile dress that will make you feel amazing every time you put it on.

    Promising review: "I wore this dress for my son's wedding and I was fabulous. The material was very nice, and there was plenty of arm room for my upper arm, which totally amazed me. Most companies don't take into consideration the plus-size upper arm size with the plus-size dress. The fit was perfect." —Mz. Loretta

    Price: $35.99+ (available in sizes L-5XL and 16 colors and patterns)

    12. A ruffled mini with an open back and sheer sleeves that is so adorable, you'll vow to love, honor, and wear it 30 more times this summer.

    Promising review: "Bought this dress for my cousin's wedding and it was PERFECT. I ordered a size small—I am 5’8 and 135lbs. It fit so perfectly and didn’t show too much, even with the low cut! I’ll take 10 more please." —Scarlett Haney

    Price: $15.98+ (available in sizes S-XL and 14 colors and patterns)

    13. A half-sleeve swing dress with pockets, for times when you don't want a purse to be your plus-one.

    Promising review: " <3 this dress. Wore it to a wedding. Got lots of complements!! I normally wear a 2x, and this 2x fit perfectly. I bought a petticoat to go under the dress, and a wide belt." —Eva

    Price: $19.99+ (available in sizes S-XXL and 33 patterns and colors)

    14. A bodycon sheath with bell sleeves that will help you put the "fun" back into "ultra-formal nighttime wedding."

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I wore this to one of my friends' 'formal' weddings in November in Charleston. I had so many compliments! It was very comfortable throughout the entire night. It's fitted, but not so tight that I couldn't dance in it. Absolutely loved it! I'm 5'11" and weigh 155 and I got a medium, fits perfectly!" —Rachel Hollowell

    Price: $19.99+ (available in sizes XS-3XL and 39 colors and patterns)

    15. A flounce sleeve dress with a belt and pleated bottom, because this will look just as good in the office as it did on the dance floor.

    The dress in green
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I love this dress! I wore it to a wedding and got several compliments. It is super comfortable, soft and fun to wear. I wore it straight out of the package and it didn’t gain wrinkles throughout the night. I am 5ft and 135 lbs and I was worried about the fit, but it was great. I will be buying another color." —Dana Shaun

    Price: $37.99+ (available in sizes XS-XXL and in six colors)

    16. A geometric print split dress that will make you look chic and pulled-together all night, even when you tell everyone at your table embarrassing stories about what the bride was like in middle school (oh, if she didn't want people to know that stuff, she shouldn't have invited you!).

    Promising review: "OH. MY. GAWD. I love this dress! I bought it for a wedding, and I got so many compliments. It's the perfect balance of dressing up without going overboard. Super comfy. Fabulous." —Michael A. Morganford

    Price: $17.99+ (available in sizes XS-3XL and 10 patterns)

    17. A velvet, puff-sleeved, one-shoulder bodycon dress, for wedding guests who are not afraid of DRAMA (in their look, I mean).

    The dress in blue
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I absolutely love, love, love this dress! The color (blue) is so vivid and bright. The velvet-like material is very soft and has stretch to it (spandex). It is definitely worth the price, because this dress looks very expensive. Even though this dress hits well below my knees, I actually don't mind the length. I'm 5'1 and 160lbs the SMALL fit me perfectly. I wore this dress to an evening wedding in February 2020. My last event before we went into lockdown. I recieved SO, SO, SO many compliments! It paired well with silver/gray velvet sandal heels. All the wrinkles were gone after being hung up for a couple days. No ironing necessary. Don't hesitate with purchasing this dress. It's so worth it." —Ebonnie Fisher

    Price: $36.99+ (available in sizes S-XXL and six colors)

    18. A boho wrap maxi dress that can be adjusted into all kinds of variations, including looser at the waist for folks who are pregnant, and looser around the chest for people who'll need to nurse during the festivities.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "Wore for a wedding and it was super cute. I needed something I could breastfeed in and this was the perfect mix of cute and practical for me. The dress is a true wrap but I didn’t have issues feeling exposed, even with chasing a baby and toddler around all day." —Michelle Dirckx

    Price: $28.99+ (available in sizes S-XXL and 24 patterns)

    19. An off-the-shoulder skater dress so cute, you're going to start looking for random weddings to attend, just so you'll have more excuses to wear it.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I purchased this dress on a whim for a wedding I was attending. I love this dress and I am already looking for another event to wear it to. I received so many compliments on the color, the high low hem line, and the off the shoulder neck line. It is very comfortable, stretchy, and well-made, especially for the price.

    For reference, I attended an outside wedding in Florida when it was about 85 degrees and very high humidity. My biggest plus was it did not show sweat! A lot of ladies were very jealous. I was comfortable the entire night. I wore the dress for about 12 hours, with eight of those being outside. The shoulders did not slip, which sometimes I have problems with when it comes to off the shoulder tops and dresses.

    I went with a medium. For reference I am typically a small in dresses. I am a 34c chest, have slightly bigger arms (I work out), 5'4, and wear a size 6 in pants. If my arms were not on the bigger side, I could have sized down. It was not very fitted around my body, but it was not oversized. I do know that my arms would not have fit into a small.

    I definitely say try this dress! You can not go wrong." —Amanda

    Price: $12.99+ (available in sizes XS-XXL and 11 colors)

    20. A tiered, belted maxi halter that can be dressed up for a more formal look, or paired with sandals for a beach ceremony.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I wore this dress to a wedding this weekend and felt so fabulous in it. It comes across as much more expensive than it is. I may buy another one I love it so much." —Tara Cuslidge-Staiano

    Price: $23.99+ (available in sizes S-XXL and 29 colors and patterns)

    21. A flared, pleated midi with pockets that will make you want to tie the knot (on the dress's belt, to define the waist however you like).

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I was searching for a warmer dress to wear to a fall wedding and this was perfect. The material is a little thicker compared to other dresses I tried on here, and is stitched together well. I read the reviews and ordered a large like I usually wear. I'm about 5'6", 170 pounds, and 36B in the chest, and it fits great. I received many compliments about how it looks and will be able to wear this to work, too! Happy with my purchase!" —Samantha Haslip

    Price: $29.99+ (available XS–3XL, short and long sleeves, and 43 colors and patterns)

    Promising review: "Beautiful dress! The picture does not do it justice. I bought this dress to attend a wedding and think I received as many compliments on my dress as the bride! He he he. I can definitely recommend And would buy it again. I wish it came in more colors, because I would buy one in every color!" –Lady Shopper

    Price: $28.89+ (available in sizes S–3XL and 41 colors and patterns)

    The dress in blue
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I bought this for a beach wedding. I bought a large and it fit great and was plenty long (feel just below my knee). I'm 5'9 180 lbs. It's a great dress for the price." —Meagan Ververa

    Price: $38.98 (available in sizes S-XL and 10 colors)

    24. A lace cocktail dress that looks perfect at a formal wedding, but can also be dressed down with a cardigan and flats for a Friday night out? IT'S A MIRACLE. Or a scientific breakthrough. Either way, you'll want to buy five.

    The dress in white
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I purchased two of these dresses: a white one for my daughter, and a yellow one for myself. It is a must-have for every woman’s closet because it is so versatile. It can be dressed up with fancy shoes and jewelry and worn as a cocktail dress, or dressed down with cute sandals and worn as a casual dress. We wore them to a country wedding and paired them with brown cowboy boots and jean jackets. We received dozens of compliments. I plan to order more in other colors!" —Valerie

    Price: $39.99+ (available in sizes XS-XXL, short sleeve, quarter sleeve, and sleeveless, and 8 colors)

    25. An off-the-shoulder side split maxi dress with pockets, so you can live a life of FREEDOM! And by "freedom," I mean "not awkwardly clutching your phone while you dance because you don't have pockets."

    The dress in royal blue
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I LOVE THIS DRESS! I'm a 14 and an XL was plenty big(possibly too big)! It has awesome stretch, pockets were not bulky, and the length was juuuuust right for me as 5'5" (maybe slightly an inch too short, but still worked!). It fit my DDD chest, and stayed up just fine. I cinched it with a brown belt and got compliments on it all night at a wedding I was at. The best part? It wasn't clingy on the body. Meaning I didn't have to wear shapewear. It was GREAT! Highly recommended dress!!" —Julie Therese

    Price: $15.99+ (available in sizes XS-XL and 19 colors and patterns)

    26. A bodycon dress with an asymmetrical shoulder ruffle that will absolutely stand out in all of the pics.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Got so many compliments on this dress. Wore it to a wedding and it was perfect! Very snug-fitting (like the product pictures show). I’m 5’3” and 115 lbs for reference. The sleeve part covers the chest part of the dress, so I didn’t even need to wear a bra." —Erica C.

    Price: $19.99+ (available in sizes S-XXL and 14 colors)

    27. A halter neck skater dress with scalloped detailing, so you can feel comfy and look adorable all day, whether you're toasting the happy couple or TP-ing their car (hey, it's tradition!).

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "Wore this to a brunch wedding in Texas and it had the perfect coverage. It's super fun to dance in and is easily paired with a long cardigan if you are worried about the cold." —Sidney

    Price: $26.99+ (available in sizes XS-XL and 19 colors and patterns)

    28. A backless number with adjustable spaghetti straps, because you don't want to be fiddling with your strapless bra or dress tape all night. After all, it's a PARTY!

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I was worried about ordering this dress because some of the reviews stated that the sizing is weird. I'm 5'4" and around 112 lbs, so I ordered an xs and it's PERFECT! I wore it to my brother's wedding and got so many compliments. The straps being adjustable helped to make it a perfect fit. This is my new go-to dress for weddings and other events. For those asking about what bra to wear, I just wore the silicone petal covers and they worked great with the dress." —Kelsey

    Price: $29.99+ (available in sizes 0-20 or XS-XXL, and 31 colors)
