15 Wedding-Guest Dresses You'll Want to Wear Again and Again
Finding the perfect dress to wear to a wedding can be hard. We're here to help you snag one that you'll not only love on the day of, but is versatile enough to wear again and again. This year, it feels like everyone we know is getting married, so it's important to have a few different styles to choose from. Whether you're going to a beach wedding or a black tie affair, we've got you covered. We shopped at Nordstrom, because the retailer carries great pieces and brands at every price point, and found 15 gorgeous dresses to wear for any and every kind of wedding.
Ahead, you'll find everything from flowy floral maxis to more minimal LBDs. We're particularly obsessing over a pink wrap dress, and a green embellished black tie style that will have the reception turning heads. Wedding season is in full swing, and it's important to have options you love. Plus, you never know if a last minute plus-one invitation might come up, and it'll save you so much stress if you have a dress in your closet that's ready to go.
