Let’s talk fall wedding guest dresses! Whether you’re looking for a dress to rock to an outdoor wedding (coastal cliffside or in the countryside, perhaps?), something cool and casual indoors, or even cocktail attire, take a peek at our current FAVES! All of these gowns can be dressed up or down — think denim or leather jackets, dainty gold jewelry, or a pair of cool booties. Oh, and a major bonus? You can wear them over + over again (not just to a wedding!).
What should a guest wear to a fall wedding?
If the wedding is being held outdoors, you’ll want to look for long sleeve dresses in warm fabrics. For an indoor wedding, dresses in earthy hues, metallics, jewel tones and classic black feel especially fitting for a fall wedding. We always recommend layers as well since the weather can change easily from one week to the next!
What should I wear over my outfit for a fall wedding?
It depends on where your wedding is taking place! Typically we recommend floor-length coats, cropped jackets, leather jackets and/or a shawl to complete your fall wedding guest outfit.
