Is it just me or does it feel like you receive another wedding invitation in the mail every week? Thankfully, I love weddings, but they involve a bit of planning. How will I get there? Where will I stay? What will I get the happy couple as a gift? And, my favourite thing; what will I wear? Over the years, I've assembled quite the collection of wedding guest dresses, however, upon raking my rails for a dress for a wedding I have in late October, I soon realised that my current wedding guest-dress selection very summery. I've been to two autumn weddings in my time, but I was a bridesmaid with a dress provided to me at both, so I've never had to find myself a seasonally-appropriate outfit for an autumn wedding.
Over the past couple of weeks, I've genuinely spent hours hunting down the coolest, most appropriate autumn-ready wedding guest dresses around, not just for myself, but to serve anyone else who might be in the market for such an item. Longer sleeves feature on many of these frocks, of course, and hemlines remain generally in the midi-length area. That said, these dresses are meant to last, so expect to keep wearing them over the festive period, next year's wedding season and years to come after. Also, bonus tip for 2023's nuptials: If you buy your outfit now, chances are by the time the wedding comes around, no one else will be wearing the same thing as you.
So, scroll on to see the most beautiful autumn wedding guest dresses I can find.
