It's no secret that, amid the highly-anticipated wedding boom, it's a busy time to be a guest. Your social calendar is likely packed with weddings, showers, bach parties, and engagement celebrations. While wedding season is generally known to span from May through October, it just might feel like a year-round state. And although being a wedding guest is undeniably fun, it can add up financially over time. Not only are you spending money on gifts, you're also likely paying for travel and transportation, potential lodging for far-flung soirées, and those pesky hidden "wedding guest fees" (like late-night Ubers or DoorDash snacks once the party ends). With all of these expenses, it's not always easy to spend a ton on your outfit. Enter: Lulus wedding guest dresses.

If you're not sure what to wear to a wedding, we always recommend following the couple's dress code listed on their invitation. And while you can certainly go shopping in your own closet, we know the importance of feeling stylish and confident in your attire. There are a few tried-and-true retailers we love for finding affordable wedding guest dresses, one of which is Lulus. The trendy brand specializes in party dresses for weddings—and not only are their prices budget-friendly, they carry plenty of size-inclusive styles as well.

We know you might not have time to scour the entire website for outfit ideas, which is why we've rounded up our very favorite Lulus wedding guest dresses by season. Below, you'll find a variety of designs fit for all wedding dress codes, from casual sundresses to formal floor-length evening gowns. The best part? You won't have to bust your budget on a high-quality outfit that's also fashion-forward.

You'll shimmer from all angles in this statement satin wrap dress. Plus, the standout magenta colorway will help you stand out in a sea of wintry blues, grays and greens.
