May 15th, 2017

Love is in the air, your mailbox is full of save the dates, and your Target runs consist of more than just prowling the $1 section. It’s wedding season and that means it’s time to find the perfect outfit for all those insta photos you’ll be tagged in. Celebrating the unity of our friends and family is one of the greatest joys in life, but it can really start to add up. With travel, accommodations, and gifts to consider, we know that a new suit or dress may fall to the bottom of the list. So, here are a few of our top picks if you're balling on a budget.

For the men looking for a little twist on a classic, try a skinny tie to change up the line of your simple suit and dress shirt. Check out a few new men's button down dress shirts to add some subtle color or pattern to your collection.

Ladies, we know you love lightweight, spring dresses, so take a look at Lulu's floral, organza and tailored styles. We love them because we can keep wearing them all summer. Shop separates, tops and trousers to add affordable flair to your wardrobe, perfect for a wedding but wearable whenever!

If you’re traveling or attending several weddings this season you’ll need some casual attire for afternoons and that picturesque beach ceremony. Whether by the pool or in your best friend’s backyard, comfortable and classy sandals are a must! You can pair these with thin gold jewelry and delicate earrings for an understated look. We love a cute off the shoulder dress, just add a vintage inspired hair accessory for the perfectly playful outdoor do!

Men, we know you don't want to compromise comfort so try on a linen pant with a vest instead of a jacket. Cuff up your sleeves and stay cool while looking dapper. If you're feeling adventurous, why not accessorize with a pastel bowtie or a sky blue pocket scarf? These light colors will brighten your look!

If you're on your way to a black tie affair, we've selected some great shops and styles that won't break the bank. Shop Black Halo for a chic and fashion forward look. Go for a full-length silhouette or a dramatic lace sleeve. Add some tear drop earrings in pearl or crystal and you will dazzle!

For guys, we love the simple three-piece suits from Boscovs; just add a pair of silver, French knot cufflinks and charm your way through the night.

Everything you need from tie pins to pantyhose is ready for you to collect and shop! Check out our Wedding Guest Attire collection for everything we mentioned here. Don’t forget, all your purchases earn you instant rewards, which makes shopping from the registry even easier. You'll be showing up in style, elegant and prepared for every occasion! Collect your favorite looks in one place and save time and money for all occasions. Here's to love and your love of style!
