20 Dresses Under $100 to Wear to All Your Summer Weddings


(Original story published on Monday May 11th, 2015 on

Weddings are great. We get to celebrate the love between two people, slip on something fancy, dance a little, eat a lot, and indulge in a glass of champagne or two.

As wonderful as weddings are, there are some serious side effects. Firstly, they can remind you that you are nowhere near that stage in your life; secondly, they can wreak havoc on your bank account and lastly, did we mention the champagne?

We may not be able to solve your relationship woes and we certainly don’t have a hangover cure down pat, but when it comes to saving your dough, we’ve got you covered. To make it through wedding season, you’re probably going to need a new dress or two. And for that, we’ve rounded up 20 chic dresses you can wear again and again (plus, they’re all under $100).
