Have a whole lotta weddings to attend this year? Worrying about the financial damage it’s going to cause you (dress + gift + travel costs = broke city)? To save yourself from financial ruin, obviously opt for dresses that won’t set you back a few hundo.

Also consider dresses that you know you will also wear to work, out on your own, and at the other weddings! I know, I know, you’re thinking that your image in the same frock will be littered about Facebook, but you’re giving people too much credit. People generally don’t notice the little details on Facebook, they’re too busy looking at their own profiles, so by adding a scarf, bolero, blazer, or different shoes, to the same dress all season means that chances are good that no one will notice.

3. Your Date's/Boyfriend's/Hubbie's Friends Wedding

This pink number (the Coral Freda Wrap Front Dress from this Irish shop that does ship internationally for free) is flattering, versatile and its look is oh-so easily changed with jewelry, a scarf, hat, heels or wrap. You can wear this dress all year long.
