Fall wedding guest dresses are a must for this important event

Everyone loves dressing up, especially when the event at question is very important. Weddings are probably one of the most important even in a person’s life. After all, the wedding pictures will be in albums and on social media for everyone to see. That is exactly why it is important to wear something nice and chic.

Keep it simple

Dressing up doesn’t always mean going overboard with intricate designs or lots of colors. Sometimes, simplicity is key. Even a simple black dress can leave a lasting impression when worn with the right accessories. For example a simple off the shoulders dress can be a real statement piece. Especially if you combine it with a nice necklace and sandals. Furthermore, it gives you the possibility to wear long sleeves, which is definitely helpful if the temperature drops. You can wear your hair up or down, it doesn’t really matter. You will look great either way.

Sometimes less is more when it comes to dressing up for an important event

Lacy fall wedding guest dresses

Lace is the queen when it comes to weddings. Most wedding dresses incorporate lace if not entirely, than at least with some lacy details on the back or neckline. That is exactly the reason why lace is always welcomed and is always a good idea for a wedding. Choose a boho lacy dress in a statement color and you will nail the assignment. Combine it with a pair of sandals or simple heels, let your hair flow down with some beach waves and your look will definitely be something everyone at the wedding is going to be talking about.

Lace is a key ingredient in any wedding dress, so why not use it as a wedding guest as well

Go floral

In general floral prints are mostly used throughout the summer. However, florals are never a bad idea for a wedding. As we have already said, lace is an inseparable part of any wedding. Well, so are flowers. That is exactly why, floral dresses are perfect for wedding guests. Usually, for the summer we tend to lean more on flowers in bright colors. For the fall season, however, we may try more understated colors with a floral print that pops. Whether you choose a midi or a full length dress, the florals will definitely make enough of an impression.

Florals of any kind are always welcome at weddings
