Oaky so technically it’s Autumn, go with me here and try and get your head around the fact that it’s mid September. Don’t let this glorious weather fool you though my pretties, Autumn Weddings are just around the corner. You might be thinking that wedding season takes place smack in the middle of summer (June being the most popular month) but I beg to differ. Being a September bride myself I always encourage couples to wait, let summer pass, at this time of year there is crisp air, there is plentiful sun and there is beauty every where you turn, in the leaves, in the fields and in ourselves for it’s the change of season that fills us with visions of bonfires and cardigans.
Dressing for such an Autumnal wedding as a guest can be quite the challenge. It’s often too cold for strappy numbers and sadly sunny sandals are pretty much out of season now. What’s a quirky girl to do?
I put myself in the shoes of someone who is going to a wedding this Autumn (violins please, I am not going to one!)
My Autumn 2016 Wedding Guest Outfit Ideas ||
Etsy | Neon Yellow Embossed Scuba Fabric Two-Piece, With metallic Embroidered Flowers, Rainbow Pom Poms and Pleated Waistline.
Ok, because it’s been so mild I had to include this one. I can imagine a shawl wrapped around this beauty during the day, then whipped off for the dance floor, why wear dull colours just because the summer is over? This is by one of my favourite designers LOM of Brighton, an awesome two-piece, made with unique and unusual embossed scuba fabric in neon Yellow! The top is cropped, fastens at the back with hook and eyes, and features pink embroidered flowers with metallic detail on one shoulder. The skirt is 25 inches long, high waisted and features matching flowers and rainbow pom pom trim. Oh yeah.

Etsy | Autumnal Orange late 50s drop waist dress with full skirt
I found this glorious piece on SartorialMatters Etsy shop. You’ll have to be super quick if this is beauty is the one for you as it’s vintage. Very vibrant late 50s or possible very early 60s dress in a bright white and orange almost abstract floral print. Still has the classic new look fit of the 50s with a beautiful fit and flare. Boned bodice with thin straps and a dropped waistline. Full skirt and back nylon zip, fully lined in white acetate or viscose. Outer fabric feels like a lightweight synthetic. Beautiful colour for an Autumn wedding no?

Whistles | Marina Silk Flippy Dress
I love this dress, it reminds me of walks in the woods. Divine, earthy, vivid Autumnal floral print enlivens this minimal dress silhouette. The round neck style features long sleeves, a zip fastening and fitted waist flaring to above the knee. Would be fabulous for a wedding this time of year and you could wear it with boots and wooly tights to the pub for the rest of the winter. Cosy yet glam.

Zara | Beautiful Embroidered Jumpsuit
This jumpsuit really caught my eye, the high neck and back and the belt really appeal to me because of my wide shoulders! Check out the beautiful detail on the sleeves, not to mention the length of them. Those stunning berry flavours on the floral details, cut to drape in an effortless manner over the body this is a real treat for eye, if like me you love a jumpsuit, you love Navy Blue and you love to dress to impress yourself then this might be the ideal outfit for you if you’re attending a wedding or party in Autumn 2016.
