Looking for something to wear to an upcoming wedding but don’t want to break the bank? Read on for our edit of this year’s best cheap wedding guest dresses.

This year is set to be a huge one for weddings as many of the couples who unfortunately couldn’t get married in 2020 and 2021 have rescheduled for the coming months. So chances are, your diary is looking pretty full when it comes to wedding celebrations. As exciting as that sounds, it can also be really expensive, especially when you factor in all the costs that come with being a wedding guest – the travel, accommodation, gift for the couple, and, of course, your outfit. Research in 2021 shows that currently, the average cost of being a wedding guest is £541.90 per big day you attend and the amount only goes up if you’re heading abroad for the big day or attending the hen or stag do too.

Thankfully the high street is awash with loads of amazing and cheap wedding dresses for every season and every style, so you can look a million dollars while only spending a fraction of that amount. And, if you’ve got multiple weddings to attend, with beautiful dresses for as little as £22.50 you can afford to splash out on a different guest outfit for each and every occasion. To help you find the perfect gown worthy of the best-dressed guest award we’ve rounded up the most elegant dresses, from flowing maxi dresses to chic fitted minis for every season, all at unbelievably low prices.
