My Fall Wedding Guest Looks

This is one of the first years that we’re not attending a fall wedding. But when I do, finding the perfect dress is a mission of mind. I always try to gather as much information about the event as possible. A few things that help me determine my selection:

  • Where is the wedding being held? I love going to a new destination or venue for someone’s nuptials. Everything from a beach, lavender farm, country club, historic hotel, or botanical garden.  It all sets the tone for the outfit. I like to match the feel and the vibe for the setting.
  • Casual, Cocktail, or Black Tie? Knowing the expectations of the bride and groom also factors into your wedding guest dress. Also, you want to feel good about your choice – not overdressed or underdressed.
  • Bridal Color Palette. You can either ask this directly or even determine from the invitation colors. You don’t want to show up wearing a dress that looks like one of the bridesmaids.

I wore this backless silky gown to a friend’s wedding at the Horticultural Center in Philadelphia last year. I loved adding a campy lip to the look! For more details, check out the original post.
