Most people peg spring and summer as “wedding season,” but in my experience fall and winter are just as busy! Michael and I had two weddings to attend last fall. I wore this lace Parker dress to one and this maxi dress to another (this one was in the Caribbean so my dress was a bit more summery).
Nordstrom always comes through. It’s my one stop shop for almost everything I ever need. When it comes time for any sort of special occasion, I know I’ll be able to find something that works there. And hello free shipping and free returns!
I’ve used Rent the Runway on numerous occasions and love it. There are a lot of great perks to using the service (designer dresses at a fraction of the price!). One of my favorite things about Rent the Runway is that the reviews are actually SUPER helpful. I love that previous customers post photos of themselves in the dresses. I always try to look for someone with a similar body type to mine to see how the dress actually fits.
What to Wear to a Fall Wedding
Things to Keep in Mind When Picking out a Wedding Guest Dress for a Fall Wedding
Jewel Tones // For fall, I like to stick to darker tones. Jewel tones are always a fall favorite!
Comfort // While I love a strapless dress, it’s sometimes rather hard to dance in that style. Keep in mind your comfort when picking out a dress that you’ll likely be wearing for a few hours.
Weather // Is it going to be hot at the wedding and/or wedding reception? I’ve been to far too many fall weddings in the south where it’s still 80 degrees. I always keep this in mind when picking the color and fabric of my wedding guest dress and choose a dress that won’t show any sweat on the dance floor.
Church vs. Non-Church // If the wedding is in a church, you might want to dress a bit more conservative. Perhaps a higher neckline or a long sleeve option.
Happy Fall Wedding Season!
