Sequined One-Shoulder Mini Dresses
In the mood to add a little sparkle to your wedding guest look? A dazzling black mini dress is the one for you! These dresses are perfect for a cold-weather wedding thanks to their deep navy shade with a hint of sparkle. What’s more, a one-shoulder neckline adds a unique twist whilst a waist belt defines your figure. Wear your hair down and finish off your look with heeled silver sandals!
Plunge V-neck Gowns
Another super sparkly dress style we just can’t get enough of is plunge V-neck gowns! Gowns just like the Ray gown by Sabina Musayev. This style screams old Hollywood glamor and we’re dying to slip into on every occasion possible! Why? It boasts a sultry plunging neckline, a tiered, A-line skirt, and the most beautiful black shoulder bows. Therefore, we plan to style ours with classic, heeled black sandals for an eternally elegant finish. Slick on a little red lipstick and the other guests will mistake you for a movie star!
Gorgeous In Green
Green dresses work all year round in our opinion, that said, deeper green hues certainly give that little something extra to weddings with a fall backdrop. Mimicking colors within the natural world, this color will be perfect for outdoor ceremonies, or those with a view of the outdoors. So, get your hands on a dress in a deep green shade, preferably with a fitted bodice and a long sweeping skirt. This will showcase your silhouette whilst ensuring your dress is suitable for chillier temperatures.
Dramatic Tiered Black Dresses
When we think of weddings, the color black doesn’t immediately spring to mind. Pastel hues and floral prints are usually the go-to when it comes to wedding guest dresses after all.
That said, now that temperatures are dropping and we’re moving towards shorter days and longer evenings, we think black dresses are a perfect choice. You’re certain to stand out in yours and, as the majority of the celebrations will take place after dark thanks to earlier sunsets, it seems only appropriate to bring a little drama into the mix. Additionally, dresses with theatrical ruffle detailing will look incredible and provide a softer edge that’s ideal for celebrating the union of your loved ones.
Super Flattering Wrap Dresses
Few dress styles out there can flatter your figure as a wrap dress can. Therefore, we highly recommend opting for this style once you’ve RSVP’d to your next wedding invitation. What’s more, this sweet silhouette often offers a bow detailing on the waist thanks to a self-tie belt. If this is the case on your dress, be sure to make the most of this addition by styling your bow prominently at the front of your body. If you’re wondering if such a perfect dress can really exist, it can! The Clarence silk-blend dress by Silvia Tcherassi is about to make all of your wedding guest dress dreams a reality!
Floral Embellished Dresses
As we said before, florals are the go-to look for wedding guests with good reason. Floral prints are not only timeless (making sure your wedding outfit remains a classic every time the wedding album comes out) they’re also incredibly pretty and elegant!
Now, we’re not suggesting you need to choose a dress with head to toe florals if that’s not your style. We do however suggest that you choose a dress with delicate floral embellishments. This will work beautifully on a black dress or even one in a deep, colored hue. This will blend perfectly with a fall wedding color palette. The embellishments can be in the form of embroidery or print, just make sure they’re subtle enough to remain elegant and chic.
Long-Sleeved Maxi Gowns
We truly mean it when we say, you can never go wrong with a chic, long-sleeved maxi gown for a wedding guest dress. Not only will you look incredibly chic, but you’ll also remain warm in style throughout the entire day. Choose one with a subtle print so it doesn’t drown your frame and, where you can, always include a waist belt to define your silhouette.
Bold Print & Colors
The bride may be wearing white but, as a guest, you can opt for any color you like! With this freedom of choice in mind, we see no reason why bold prints and colors should be off-limits, especially when it comes to long-sleeved designs. Long sleeves and skirts are always a good choice for ceremonies taking place during the fall. Those looking for a statement dress of their own need look no further than the gorgeous gathered midaxi dress in contrast leopard by Closet London.
Metallic Midi Dresses
Nothing says chic like a metallic midi dress. Not to mention, those in gold and bronze tones are simply perfection when it comes to fall wedding colors. To make sure you get this look right, let your dress do all the talking. Style it with classic, heeled black sandals and minimal accessories.
