Finding the perfect dress to wear to a wedding can be difficult! Especially when you’re trying to stay within a budget and not splurge on a pricy gown that you’ll probably only wear once. We all know Shein has many affordable items on its site, but with such a large selection it can be difficult to find those high-rated hidden gems. That’s why I decided to create this guide of the best Shein wedding guest dresses. Basically, I’ve done the digging so you don’t have to!
Depending upon the vibe and dress code of the wedding, this guide will cover all the bases – from sophisticated and elegant gowns, to more trendy and unique styles. And I’ll make sure you find the best fit – to flatter your figure and make you feel confident and fabulous on the big day.
Since I know all of us are on a budget, most of these dresses are way under $50, with a few exceptions that are under $75. Who says you need to spend a lot to look great?
What Should You Wear to a Wedding?
I’m going to state the obvious here, and never, ever wear white to a wedding! I would even advise against any floral prints with a white or light colored background. And sometimes a light pink or blush can show up as nearly white in photos, so I would probably opt against those as well.
Also, make sure to review the dress code on the invitation so you can be sure to choose the appropriate attire. For daytime weddings, shorter dresses are acceptable, but for formal or black tie weddings, a full length gown is more appropriate. (There’s an entire section at the end for formal wedding dresses).
