I absolutely love attending weddings – they are such happy moments and always a blast! We haven’t been to weddings in quite some time as most of our friends at this point are married, but we have TWO this month and naturally this mama is excited to get dressed up. I’ve had several requests to feature wedding guest attire on here, so I thought this was the perfect opportunity to share some summer Wedding Guest Dress options with you and how to transition them to fall!
I found two perfect, inexpensive dresses from Nordstrom that are great for the end of summer, early fall season! I’m showing you how I styled them below for summer, but I’m linking a few items below that can easily transition them to a fall wedding as well.
I love the simplicity of this Infinite Glory Body-Con Dress by Lulus, which makes it appropriate for a day or nighttime wedding. I wore it in the Dusty Rose for an early afternoon wedding, but it’s also available in navy and wine which would be stunning for a fall wedding. It fits true to size, and I’m wearing an XS here.
It is very figure forming, so don’t forget the Spanx! I personally love this pair that I wore with it. They’re lightweight and don’t add too thick of a layer underneath (which is great if it’s hot!). I also added these simple Sam Edelman heels, which are my go-to for more formal events because they work with just about anything. They are high, though, so if you’re looking for a shorter version, I suggest this pair right HERE (same shoe, smaller heel!).
The second dress I scooped up is Topshop Plunge Slipdress. This is definitely more for an evening wedding with its plunging neckline but I love that it’s simple and classic otherwise. I’m wearing a size 2 here which fits like a 0.
I’m still wearing the same Sam Edelman heels (they really do go with everything!), and added one of my favorite clutches of all time by Clare V. This clutch is definitely on the pricier side, so I found a slightly less expensive option for you right here! For jewelry, I added this Y choker necklace from BaubleBar to accentuate the plunging neckline. However, statement earrings with no necklace would also be beautiful!
One simple tip to transition these to fall: add a pashmina! A classic pashmina scarf is a wardrobe staple because it can easily be draped over these dresses as a shawl for some added warmth. A neutral color will be sure to go with just about everything. Another option would be to add a blazer!
I’m linking up several other wedding guest dress options below for you! I personally love choosing a dress I can wear multiple times styled differently, like the above options. The best part is both are under $100! Nordstrom is my go-to for dresses like this because I know I’ll find a wide variety of options and price points, plus the accessories I need to complement it. They also offer free shipping and returns, so you can easily send back what doesn’t work! Shop the rest of my picks below.
