How to Be the Best-Dressed Wedding Guest This Fall

What to Wear to a Fall Wedding as a Guest 

Soon the leaves will change, and you’ll feel a refreshing crispness in the air. There’s something romantic about early autumn sunsets, so it’s no wonder fall weddings are a favorite for many couples. September and October are popular nuptial months, so you will likely see an invitation or two in your mailbox soon if you haven’t already. 

But what do you wear? Luckily, planning your outfit can be simple, and something like a wrap dress plus size or regular size in a rich autumn color like plum or rust could be the perfect piece to help you feel beautiful and confident during the ceremony. Here are a few tips and tricks for planning a fall wedding guest outfit.

Choose a Festive Color

If there’s one thing we can agree on, it’s that some of the best color inspiration comes from nature. Fall is one of the most beautiful wedding seasons, with red, orange, yellow, and brown leaves that evoke a warm and cozy feeling. The sky changes from bright blue to smokey gray throughout the day, then a splash of shades by sunset. Make sure to infuse the cornucopia of fall colors into your wedding guest attire. 

Embrace Prints and Patterns

Floral print dresses are always a popular and safe bet for weddings. Florals are associated with romance and nature and can be tailored to each season or venue. Although people traditionally think of florals for spring, you can wear floral wedding guest dresses like our Lisa Dark Plum Floral Elbow Dress year-round. In addition to floral prints, don’t be afraid to reach for other bold, bright patterns, like abstract prints, paisleys, geometric shapes, metallics, polka dots, stripes, and more.

Cover Up for Comfort

A dress with sleeves is an excellent choice for colder climates. No need to opt for full sleeves; elbow sleeves, such as our Lisa 2.0 in Deep Cobalt, still provide plenty of coverage to keep you comfortable. Another option is a regular or plus size sheath dress with a cardigan or shrug for additional coverage and warmth once the sun goes down. If you have a sleeveless or short-sleeved dress that you love, don’t despair! You can always add a lightweight jacket or our cascading Ruth Cardigan should you start feeling chilly. Don’t be afraid to use accessories, either, as a colorful scarf adds color to your dress and keeps you warm.

Maximize Your Wardrobe with Maxi and Midi Dresses

While debating what to wear to a fall wedding, consider a feminine dress that falls somewhere in the middle of your leg. The flowy Renee Black Midi Dress perfectly compromises between a short and a long gown. Midi dresses are versatile for both casual and semi-formal wedding events.

Another timeless option is a maxi dress, which provides more coverage than a midi dress. Select a maxi dress with a print for casual celebrations. Delicate florals or bold prints will give your dress a much-needed update for the season even solid colors offer minimalist appeal like the Meredith Curry Tie Front Maxi Dress. Are you going to a more formal affair? Opt for a floor-grazing gown, like the Grace in Cobalt in a stunning sequin shine. Pair with your most comfortable heels and a delicate chain necklace to add more sparkle to your look.

Elevate your style with comfort as your trusted companion, ensuring each dance move and heartfelt toast is made with ease. From bold prints to delicate patterns, let your attire be the exclamation mark to unforgettable moments, making you the epitome of the best-dressed wedding guests.
