6 Genius Wedding-Guest Outfits You Can Wear Year-Round

There’s nothing we adore more than a good wedding. Celebrating enduring love, sipping Champagne, awkwardly dancing to "Y.M.C.A.," eating a few slices of cake, and, of course, getting all gussied up. Yet, while it's all fine and well to gaze upon these festivities fondly, realizing that at least six Saturdays in the next few months are blocked off for nuptials can often turn those warm fuzzies into a cold sweat. You know that savings account you've worked so hard to build? Get ready to watch it disappear as you start dropping major dough on one formal dress after another.
But, we have a solution. We’ve taken three classic frocks (the embellished LBD, knee-length floral, and long gown) and styled each two different ways — for a winter ceremony now and a spring fete down the road. And, before you scoff at the idea of showing up in the same dress twice, just hear us out. With the right styling tips and tricks, that re-used frock will feel instantly fresh. Plus, it'll be so much cheaper than splurging on six separate looks. From a sultry, dramatic ensemble to a girly, playful option, these outfits will definitely give you a reason to toast as you hit the wedding circuit this year. Chin-chin!
