Although the warm summer season is almost over, wedding bells are still ringing into the crisp fall. Warm colors and vibrant foliage make Fall a busy time of the year for exchanging nuptials. Wedding guests are important because they play a big role in memory making with the bride and groom. As a guest of a fall wedding, picking your outfit can be a difficult task. From choosing the neckline of the dress to the heel of the shoes, we are here to help you RSVP with style. After all, it is a day to always remember for the bride and an outfit to never forget for you. When selecting your dress, you must consider the wedding location, location, location. Whether you are a guest of a wedding hosted at a California vineyard or a North Carolinian Victorian estate, Tadashi Shoji has designer cocktail dresses and elegant evening dresses perfect for the big day (and a few other occasions).
Autumn nuptials call for glam. Jewel tone colors like sapphire, emerald, amethyst, and deep red are perfect for this time of year. Our Crewel Embroidery on Tulle Boatneck Gown is simply enchanting for a formal 100-year-old estate wedding. The romantic color is the perfect accent to the changing leaves in the season. A simple up-do and a natural smoky eye will complete the head-turning look. Accessorize this gorgeous gown with a black cuff bracelet and you’ll look great when catching the bouquet! Another great option for this occasion is our Metallic Chantilly Lace Over Sequin Lace V-Neck Gown. The contrasting lace bodice and modern mix of fabrics creates a truly slimming and stunning look. The stylish sophistication of the gown reflects the historic feel of the wedding.
The busy travel season may be calming down but destination weddings are still heating up. If you are invited to a daytime beach wedding in sunny Florida, it is appropriate to wear something a little more casual. Our Embroidered Lace Blouson Waist Dress is perfect for the occasion, making it easy to look fabulous from day to night. All you need is a statement bracelet, dressy wedge sandals and your beach chic look is complete. For a more classic look in the sand, our Paillette Embroidered Lace Sheath Dress is a great choice. The sheer illusion neckline makes it easy for you to look flawless. Pair the dress with some strappy black sandals and you’re ready to go! As the sun begins to set, the outdoor ceremony may become windy so plan to layer accordingly. Layer Tip: A blazer is a classic go-to, but a moto jacket creates an edgier look. With this outfit, you’ll look very nice throwing the rice!
The bride is set to walk down a long aisle in a city hotel and the ivory invitation requests black-tie. This type of formal attire calls for an evening gown or a dressy cocktail dress.

For a bolder yet elegant look, our Illusion Lace ¾ Sleeve Gown is a gorgeous choice. From the sheer embroidered lace layer revealing an alluring sweetheart neckline to the grosgrain belt adorning the waistline, this dress is simply dashing. Dress it up with some black pumps and it’s time to dance the night away!
Weddings are truly special and wedding guests should be dressed that way. The dress or gown you say “yes” to should reflect the time and location of the wedding while expressing your personal style. The bride and groom are the center of attention on this day but you can get a few looks too… there has to be a best-dressed guest after all.
