Personal Shopper: A wedding guest dress to coordinate with Jordyn's date's dress blues

Jordyn G. wrote: "I'm attending a family wedding in June and I need help finding a dress to wear. My date will be wearing his dress blues so I would like to try to find a shade of blue similar. My search is limited due to the color and my budget is in the $50. My dress size is typically between 7-9 but it tends to vary a lot. Thanks!"

$50? Sorry to say, Jordyn, but there aren't a lot of wedding-appropriate dark blue dresses under $50 that will go with your date's dress blues. We did find six that might work, though; let us know how you like 'em!

1. Lulus Concerto in Chiffon Navy Blue Dress ($37)
2. Alloy Lila Cowlneck Dress ($30 on sale)

I think red would be cute too, and probably more to pick from, or is red still a no no at weddings?

I don't think it's necessarily a "no", but it is easier to match navy blue than it is that gorgeous bright red.

Also, if you're really pinched for a cash, a great option is to hit up the sale rack at whatever Dillard's or other department store you have near you-usually you can find a great dress that's just missing a button or something. It's what I did for all my school dances-never paid more than $30 with the exception of Prom!

As a Marine wife with dress blue experience I would recommend AGAINST matching the blue!!! Go for the red or something to complement the Blues vs matching...the 2 of you in all that blue will just wash each other out..and no blue dress will ever match up to the sharpness of his dress blues!! :)

Army wife agreeing that matching the blues is not the best choice! Think of blues as a tuxedo--you'd wear just about any color with it.
