Hey there, friends!

This is always a fun time of year when everything and everyone comes alive again and it’s always so fun to come together with your loved ones for a celebration, most especially weddings! The search for what to wear is always a bit daunting, so much so that I inevitably receive quite a few requests each season asking for help and I always do my best to honor those in some capacity. In 2016, I shared my Do’s and Don’t of Wedding Guest Attire. In the summer of 2017, I shared some wedding guest options under $150. In the Fall of 2017, I gave y’all some special occasion dresses. This year, since I’ve already received some requests, I thought I’d get some Spring wedding guest dress options out to you before the season hits.

To start, I thought it’d be helpful to divide the dress choices by the three likeliest wedding attire styles that are typically suggested to guests: CASUAL, COCKTAIL and FORMAL. I kept all recommendations under $100.

Nordstrom is always the first place I look when I’m shopping for a dress for a special occasion. In addition to wedding guest dress shopping, it’s a great place to look for an Easter dress. There’s certainly something for everyone and for every price point. All of these options are under $100 but there are a plethora of other gorgeous options even just a tiny bit over $100. Be sure to check out your options by using the amazing filter options that Nordstrom offers its shoppers on the left hand side of the screen when you select DRESSES from the WOMEN’S CLOTHING shopping section. Using these filters makes shopping so much quicker and helps put your blinders up to dresses that are outside of your budget range.

Don’t forget to add a cute clutch or statement jewelry item to top off your look! Nordstrom can help with that, too!

I’ve gotten quite a few requests from a lot of brides-to-be requesting a post about white dresses for your upcoming events so I will have that post coming up for you in the next couple of weeks!

Thanks for stopping by today, lovelies! Have a great Tuesday! xo.

  17. Susan says:

  27. Makenna Janssen says:

    Love this post! I think wedding guest attire is one of the scarier parts of attending and hosting an event. I purchased my dress for my sister’s wedding from Nordstrom and I absolutely love it! And they do alterations on site! Looking forward to your blog post on white dresses for brides-to-be as I’ll be getting married in October! Could you also post other options such as jumpsuits?

  28. Laura Heneveld says:

    Those tassel earrings are my new fav 😍😍

  29. Jessica O says:

    Same! Nordstrom is always my first stop for wedding dresses. We have so many weddings his year so I’m excited to get the invites and come back to this post for inspiration 🙂

  30. DT says:

    This pink dress is fantastic! Checks my boxes of being able to wear to work, dinner and church so definitely going in my cart!

  31. Katrina Holden says:

    LOVE all the options!

  32. Kelsey Hunter Lanaux says:

    I love the pink dress you featured!!! I’m a sucker for a good shift dress, and this one is so feminine! AND it isn’t one of those dresses that are so fancy you have to let them sit in the back of your closet all year and end up only wearing once. I can absolutely see myself wearing something like that to work in the summer with a cardigan or a blazer! Versatility is key!!! Thanks for keeping it real and not unrealistically ‘trendy’!

  33. Hannah says:

    Love this! And also love that you also love Kendra Scott so much!

  34. Kayla Hamdan says:

    Obsessed with the pink dress & I NEED those earrings! The look is so feminine and fun for a summer wedding. Love it!!!

  35. Rachel says:

    Saving to come back and shop these looks! I have 3 weddings this summer and I’m in one in the fall… definitely will be needing some cheaper dress options!

  36. Kaili Campbell says:

    I love this dress, the color is great for summer and it can be dressed up or dressed down. Im also a huge fan of your tassel earrings! Ive seen them in blue and pink and I need them both because their super cute and fun

  38. Jennifer Reed says:

    Beautiful, love the pink on you! 💕

  39. Katie says:

    I love that you posted affordable wedding guest dress options. Weddings can be really expensive, so this was great!

  40. Aubrey Minarik says:

    Loving these under 100$ options! I have so many weddings to go to this year and there’s nothing worse than spending your life savings on a dress you can only wear a handful of times. Thank you!

  41. Bethany says:

    The hemline detail on this dress is the best detail I think.

  42. Brooke says:

    Gorgeous! Do you know of a good dupe for those Karen Walker sunglasses?

    1. AlysonHaley says:

      Not lately! I had a great dupe pair a couple of years ago but they haven’t been available for awhile. I’ll keep my eye out though and let you know if anything changes!

  43. I am getting married in 6 months and this is just the post I need to direct all of the girls too! It is such a great resource, thank you for putting this together Haley! 🙂 Love it.

  44. Lindsey says:

    This post is SO helpful! I have so many weddings this year and sometimes picking the perfect outfit can seem daunting. I loved that you broke it down by attire too. I’m really excited to try some of these dresses! Love the affordability 🙂

  45. Kelly Hudgins says:

    Thanks for doing this giveaway! I’ve been eyeing these earrings but after seeing them with this dress, I need them!

  50. Amanda Shoultz says:

    So pretty! Some of these could also be Easter dresses or even work dresses with a jacket.

  51. Laura says:

    this post is so helpful! I always tell myself I’m going to re-wear things more often to weddings but I end up wanting to buy a new dress.

  52. Jackie Kay says:

    my sister just asked for guest wedding dress options for this Saturday (nothing like last minute!). It was so nice to have this post to show her!

  53. Kelsey says:

    That pink dress is so cute, love the color! Wish I had a local Nordstrom to try things on

  54. Kasey Hickey says:

    I have some weddings coming up this year and this is so incredibly helpful!

  72. Lizbeth says:

    I showed my sister in law the pretty sparkly dress you shared a while back and she loved it so much that she bought it. Her baby’s baptism is coming up and wants to wear that day so she asked me if it was too dressy? I said of course not, you have to be over the top for such a special ocasión (: I would wear it but I don’t want to steal her thunder (Inner giggle).

  73. Amanda says:

    Thanks for sharing these! My little sister graduates in May from nursing school and so many of these will be perfect for her pinning ceremony and graduation!

  162. Lavin says:

    Thank you Haley! I have loved the pink halter dress you have (Gemma Halter Lace Sheath Dress) and that lead me to this one – I’m 40 and I’m picky about my knees (!) so I worried about the short lining with the sheer lace. This one is similar so I hope I look as good in it as you do in yours! Thank you for sharing because your choices led me to find this on! 🙂
