Finding a ‘fall festive’ wedding guest dress

 One of the best parts of attending weddings (other than reuniting with old friends, drinking free booze and, you know, celebrating true love) is choosing what to wear.

I love having a reason to get dressed up – but it can also be a bit stressful. You have to consider the season, the time of day and the venue. And you have to decipher the dress code printed on the invitation.

We travelled to a close friend’s wedding in North Carolina this past weekend – which was absolutely gorgeous, btw – and the dress code called for “fall festive” attire. It made me realise that autumn weddings are a bit more of a challenge. I wanted to avoid pastels or anything that felt summery – but I also didn’t want anything that felt too heavy or Christmasy.

Anyway, I took my typical approach of scouring ASOS for 12 hours before settling on this ASOS Bird and Floral Embroidered Shift Dress. I love the midi length and the delicate embroidery. Plus the loose shape feels modern – and gives me room to eat wedding cake.

I paired the dress with royal blue pointed toe shoes and my new winter coat from & Other Stories.


Eat, drink and be married!
