My college friends and I are going to a few weddings together this spring, and we can’t stop talking to one another about dresses! For many of us, these will be the first “friend weddings” we’ll go to, and we want to look cute but also make sure to dress appropriately. Several of my friends have chosen to use Rent the Runway for their dresses, but I think that Poshmark is also a great option if you’re looking to cut back on spending and still find something fun and fancy. For more information on what Poshmark is and how it works, check out this post.
The nice thing about Poshmark is that you can easily spend under $50 (just as many people would aim to do on Rent the Runway), but you can keep the dress and therefore don’t have to worry about 1) mailing it back in a hurry, 2) keeping it super clean, and 3) returning it if you fall in love with it! The difficult aspect is that you definitely have to know your size beforehand, as you can’t exactly return the dress, and you won’t be receiving multiple sizes to try on as you would via Rent the Runway. But if you know your size or frequently wear a specific brand, such as J.Crew, it can be easy to find something great on the site.
Here are my Poshmark wedding guest dress picks for under $50:
This J.Crew lace dress and this one
This Zara cocktail dress
A fun red option
A cute Anthropologie piece
And for bags/clutches:
This jeweled LOFT clutch is only $10
You can also purchase shoes, jewelry, and other accessories on the site…have you bought wedding pieces on Poshmark before?
