What to Wear to a September Wedding


I looove fall weddings because the venues are always stunning and you don't have to worry about sweating your makeup off at a formal event! ;) The weather in the early fall months can still be fairly unpredictable and depending on the venue and location of the wedding, you can switch up the colors you wear pretty easily. I've been to a couple of September/early October weddings and although I lean toward black (better safe than sorry right?) I'm starting to want to be more opened to fun colors and patterns for weddings! Here's some fun looks to consider for any fall wedding(s) you'll be attending this upcoming season:

Velvet Dress / Pendant Necklace / Gold Strappy Heels / Lipstick / Champagne Gold Crossbody / Stud Earrings

Give me ALL the velvet! And it's a wrap style dress which is so flattering - AND the prettiest navy ever! I'm loving it with gold, and these earrings and pendant necklace look SO real - you'd never guess otherwise! I bought the earrings during the NSale and I've worn them all summer long - they're great for every day or to dress up.


Gemstone Drop Earrings / Black Bell Sleeve Dress / Rose Gold Cuff Ring / Eye Shadow Palette / Dusty Pink Heels / Blush Leather Clutch

This black dress also comes in the prettiest shade of burgundy! And when I found these dusty pink/mauve colored shoes I instantly thought of how pretty it would look with black for the fall! Blush pink is such an "it" color this season but they do come in a TON of other colors also. And if you're looking for a new eye shadow palette, this Tarte palette has the prettiest blush shades! My favorite combo is this is it, happening and hustle. I love wearing color to weddings, but sometimes yuo just can't go wrong with a little black dress! Especially when you accessorize it with beautiful shades like these pinks. ;)

Here's some more LBDs that are great for fall:


Black Druzy Drop Earrings / Velvet Floral Dress / Black Ankle Strap Block Heels / Velvet Quilted Bow Embellished Crossbody

Oh how in love I am with this dress/color palette!! It'll be so easy to dress this up or down too. And I've never been a huge fan of yellow, but these chartreuse/mustard shades are starting to grow on me, anyone else?! But this bag... HOW beautiful?! It's velvet and there's a smaller version with the bow in fuschia if you aren't on the golden yellow train yet! The bow sold it for me and the velvet was icing on the cake!


Essie 'Ballet Slippers' Gel Polish / Rose Gold & Stone Ear Crawler Earrings / Taupe Suede Block Heels / Quilted Shoulder Bag / Teal Ruffle Sleeved Shift Dress

The color given to this dress is actually called "fall green" - all. the. heart. eyes! It's a perfect wedding guest dress; there's a couple of other colors also and the shades of cream and taupe with this teal shade match perfectly for the fall.


Burungdy Lace Bell Sleeve Dress / Studded Necklace / Gemstone Ring, Rose Gold Band, Stone Band / Gold Leather Clutch / Ankle Strap Heels

The only thing prettier than burgundy and lace is burgundy lace! The two gemstone rings (here and the band here) are actually birthstone rings, but they're so pretty and I think they look great with all of the gold detailing!


Gemstone Drop Earrings / Silver Clutch / Dark Green Velvet Dress / Embellished Heels

For any fall weddings this year, I'm pretty sure velvet will be involved! I used to love velvet when I was younger (anyone else?!) so now that it's so back in style I want to wear it all! These beautiful heels come in the prettiest shade of burgundy also, and they're pricier but so beautiful and a great investment piece.

Which look is your favorite fall wedding look? I love these all, but I think #3 and #6 are my top two! ;)

Here's some more gorgeous wedding guest dresses for the fall:

  8. I am ABSOLUTELY loving the velvet trends these days! I have a few pair of shoes, but haven't found a fabulous dress yet. For me, these would be perfect for some holiday gatherings as I haven't been invited to a September wedding just yet.

  35. Amazing post!!! All dresses are so cool and perfect for the wedding and confusing me so much. All products are worth the buy and I am definitely going to pick form them. I have surfed plenty of website to find the right stuff for wedding. Finally I have got my dream Crystal Clutch Bag to embrace my wedding look. This is so stylish and I must suggest to try this.

  36. I went to a wedding here several years ago and fell in love. The Seattle Wedding venues are beautiful and I was so incredibly impressed and charmed with this place that when I got engaged, we didn't even shop around. It was this place or bust.
