'Tis wedding season again, and you know what that means… better start ponying up for blenders, sheet sets, flatware, and hotel rooms. As fun as it is to drink for free and dance the night away every few weeks when the weather’s warm, wedding season can strain anyone’s budget. Our recommendation? Stay cute and not-broke by buying one fantastic dress that you can wear to every single soiree. Of course, all weddings are different, but these ten dresses will have you covered whether it’s daytime or nighttime, whether it’s on a church or on a golf course, and whether it’s coolly casual or fancy and formal. And the best part? They won’t leave you mistaken for a bridesmaid, either.
When it comes to summer weddings (or any warm-weather event really), a little pink dress is just as important as your little black dress.

The knee-length hem makes it church-appropriate, while the scallops and eyelets add flirty flair for the reception. (Scallop Hem Eyelet Sheath, $148 at Muse Apparel)
The best way to avoid bridesmaid confusion is to choose dresses with patterns and prints. Florals are a natural for summer—this gorgeous sundress by Warehouse has a happy daisy print and a sexy cutout at the lower back to keep you from feeling little-girlish. (Daisy Print Dress, $78.28 at ASOS.com)
If your schedule involves a beach wedding, this is a perfect option—this cobalt blue strapless dress will look fantastic with a pair of braided thongs and a windswept 'do, but can be paired with metallic strappy sandals for a more formal event. (“Damia” Strapless Chemise, $78 at Anthropologie)
