I’m throwing my own Fall wedding this October, but I don’t want the weather of the season to weigh down my wedding guests’ style! My hope is for every one of my guests and bridesmaids is to feel fun and stylish, even if they have to throw on a jacket as the cold of autumn evening sets in.
With the resurgence of unique looks for the bride, like bridal jumpsuits and unique 3D textures, wedding guest style should be playful and just as fabulous! As a wedding guest, embrace the elements of what you already love wearing. (Remember these incredible starry bridesmaid gowns?)
Our favorite trends of the season – wrap dresses, bold prints, jumpsuits, 2-piece ensembles, and even more glam versions of bridesmaid gowns – this list is your go-to for wedding shopping. These ensembles are wedding appropriate yet modern and fun to wear as a wedding guest, or even as a bridesmaid this fall!
Wrap dresses have that “dressed up but not overdone” feeling. They’re a dress with duality. Make it fancy or keep it a little more casual when the occasion calls for it. Grab a slick clutch and you’re wedding guest ready. Swap out your fancy heels for a pair of boots and you’re ready for an evening out.

I’m the first to admit I’m a huge fan of neutral tones. But, if you want to rock something a little more playful, then a bold pattern at a wedding is the perfect combination.
