Depending on your budget, you can find beautiful, reasonably-priced dresses at Rent the Runway, BHLDN, Lotus bridal, Azazie, and Plus Size Boutiques.

Read on for some recommendations.

JW Anderson’s intricate backline
One of the most intriguing aspects of the new JW Anderson wedding guest dresses is the elaborate backline. This ruffled gown is designed for dancing and features a long ruffle on the side.

Pair the dress with minimal shoes and a colorful bag to complete the look.

Ruched hemlines and open backlines are in vogue. Choose a dress that reflects your personality and your unique style. Consider a romantic style, with puff sleeve details, a picnic-themed pattern, and floral prints, or a more edgy style that's appropriate for the weather. If you're a sexy woman who'd rather dress up than play down her curves, this ruched hemline and skinny straps could be your best bet.
For a more casual wedding, you can try a knitted striped midi dress. It's a trendy yet formal option, perfect for a beach wedding or a chilly winter wedding. The ruffled details on the front of the dress add a fun element to it. Adding a pair of neutral shoes can make the look more polished.
