My Favorite Dresses for Fall Weddings

A few weeks ago, I asked you guys on Insta Stories for suggestions on dresses for fall weddings. I’ve been looking A LOT over the past month or so, and was striking out left and right. Most of the dresses on sale were still so incredibly summery…lots of light colors and plenty of florals.Finding dresses for fall weddings

Some of you guys had some great recommendations for places to shop, and others commiserated with me…you too were struggling to find some good fall dresses! The struggle is real when you’re transitioning between seasons.

After lots of hunting both online and in-store, I finally found a dress that I’m loving…

My New Fall Dress

Dress (Francesca’s – no link available online) // Heels // Leopard Clutch (similar) // Bangles // Earrings

I actually ended up finding this lacey red/maroon dress in store at Francesca’s! I love hopping in that store fairly often because they always have unique pieces. I tried on quite a few dresses there (they had some great ones for fall!), but I ended up leaving with this one because it’s so comfortable! For some reason, I can’t find the exact link for this dress online! But I’m loving this one, this one, and this one tooLace sleeves on a fall dress

The lace top and sleeves on my new dress are fun and feminine.

While the length of the dress is short & sexy! I’m ready to twirl and dance in this bad boy. Finding a dress for fall weddings from Francesca's

I paired the dress with simple nude heels, my favorite leopard clutch (this one is similar), these earrings, and these bangles. Love the gold accessories for fall!

Retailers to Shop

As promised, I’m also sharing some of the retailers that you guys suggested I peruse in hopes of finding a good fall dress. Here are some of the spots you recommended (some of which are new-to-me!).

Floral dresses were all the rage this summer, but I’m loving these florals with dark hues for the fall and winter months ahead. Such a pretty way to add some pattern and life to a dress, and the price on this one can’t be beat!

I’ve never purchased anything from Modcloth, but wow…they had some amazing dresses on their site. Including this emerald green maxi dress. Would look fabulous with gold accessories!
