CHEERS TO #WEDDINGSZN !!
Naturally, the months of September & October are so wedding-focused but you don’t really notice it until you’re in one every-single-weekend. But honestly, I LOVE weddings & getting the honor to take part and celebrate a couple’s special bond is incredible. I’m at the age now where a lot of my friends (& my boyfriend’s friends) are at this incredible time of their lives, which is very exciting as both a bridesmaid & guest in their wedding days. We already have 5 on the calendar for next year – and yes, all are in September or October 2020.
Our 2019 SZN is complete, and I was incredibly thrilled with all the dresses I chose to wear to each of the four weddings we had in these two months. I know this season (month-wise) can be a little tricky to figure out, because it’s not quite fall in early September but it’s not that warm during the evenings later on in the month. So I decided to share all the dresses I got to wear for this year of fall weddings, categorizing them by calendar date, venue location, and overall attire for each. I’ve also pulled together a few similar dresses for each, including some that I’m considering for next year already!
Location: Country Club | Attire: Cocktail
Although it was early in the month, the evening still proved to be a chilly one. I fell in love with the print of this midi dress from Lulus, but the straps were the one thing I didn’t consider back when I ordered it vs when I would be wearing it. In order to make this great find work with the temps, I draped a neutral oversized, neutral scarf over my shoulders (which might as well have been a blanket.)
For shoes (not shown), I went with a neutral block heel sandal ~ surprisingly, my toes weren’t cold and I can successfully say that I wore them ALL NIGHT, even while dancing!
Location: Mansion at Natirar | Attire: Black Tie
Rewind to the beginning of last month when it was still warm throughout the day & night. For this Black Tie wedding, I rented this stunning Cinq à Sept dress from Rent The Runway. I really hope they plan on including it in an upcoming warehouse sale because it was so perfect, from the fit to cutout detail to the asymmetrical skirt!
I went with a simple, black ankle strap pump with a stiletto heel, as this dress did better with more height. Naturally, I took them off the minute I saw the free flip flops in the bathroom…But for those of you who can handle heels better than I can, this is a great, versatile pair.
Location: Beach & Cabana Club | Attire: Cocktail
Luckily, this evening was a warm one even by the ocean. I opted for this floral maxi dress from Lulus & paired it with a hot pink pair of block heel sandals. This print & style of dress mixed the best of venue and the early fall season so perfectly.
In case it got cold, I brought an oversized, lavender scarf to drape over my shoulders. The combo of colors didn’t match perfectly, but somehow worked together magically.
Location: Outdoor Venue | Attire: Rehearsal Dinner
For this wedding, I was a bridesmaid & wore a beautiful navy gown from Brideside. But for the rehearsal dinner the night before, I went with this purple, floral sleeve maxi from ASOS. Again, I felt the print best suited the time of year/month at hand. The long sleeves are light enough to not feel overheated, while allowing me to leave the unnecessary jacket at home.
With this dress, I went with a gold slide to match the gold weave belt I added to give the appearance of a defined waist.
