We’ve all been there, knowing that we have a special occasion coming up but saying to ourselves, “That’s months away”, and then forgetting all about it. Cue panic when you realise the big event is two weeks away, and you have absolutely nothing to wear.


You scour your wardrobe, only to find your 'old reliable' has a horrible stain which won’t come out, has inexplicably shrunk two sizes, or just isn’t quite right for that special occasion.


Don’t worry, mums; we have you covered. We’ve found six fabulous summer party dresses under €100, ideal for communions, confirmations and weddings.


1. Black and white floral midi dress

Black and white is always a good choice but can be a bit sombre for summer time. However, this floral black and white dress from Boohoo is both chic and summery, and has a purse-friendly price tag of just €23 at the moment.


It’s the perfect length, and we love the skater-style skirt and cross-over straps.
