ASOS Navy Off the Shoulder Dress| Affordable Wedding Guest Outfit Ideas | wit & whimsy

As we get into late spring and summer, we have officially kicked off wedding season. While I don’t have any to attend this summer, I’ve had past years with 5+ wedding invites and I know how expensive it can get to dress for a lot of weddings. Recently I got a few questions on Instagram for recommendations so this month’s affordable finds post is dedicated to wedding guest looks. In fact, I did my best to include a variety of styles for casual, cocktail or more formal dress codes. As always, everything is under $150 and the below collage is shoppable!
