i think a one shoulder dress and heels will look good. or both straps. and you can wear a cardigan if if gets cold. and a cute clutch. whatever color you like. i hope it helps.

wearing a dress to any wedding is a good idea. anything dressy is also fine, for example dress pants, but i highly recommend wearing a dress

Go shopping now! Summer dresses are on clearance and you may be able to find some that don’t scream “summer!!” but look for something that would fit a fall color scheme. Also consider: Is it indoor or outdoor? What time of day? Will you be wearing a sweater over your dress? What are the “colors” of the wedding? (try to avoid what color the bride maids are wearing). If you are totally lost for what colors to pick, fall is a great time to get jewel tones, such as purple, teals, etc.

Fall dresses are coming out now…skip the overly glitzy homecoming dresses you will see in the juniors department, you don’t want to look out of place!

The old rule for weddings is that only the bride should be wearing white at a wedding. The rule is about respecting the idea it’s the brides special day, her day to standout. By having other guest there in white can take away the attention that is suppose to be on the new couple. A good thing to keep in mind is that you’re going to see the new couple, not to standout. I don’t think wearing a little white is bad just try to keep it toned down a little.

Forever21 will have lots of jersey knit dresses, which I would avoid for a september wedding. Look for polester, lace, tulle, etc, types of dresses. I don’t know what stores your mall has but look at Forever21, H&M, Macys, Nordstrom, Jcpenney, etc.

If you are tired of shopping in person, do online shopping first.

What I am wearing to a wedding in august: http://www3.jcpenney.com/jcp/X6.aspx?DeptID=50434&CatID=64328&GrpTyp=PRD&ItemID=1935b9b&attrtype=&attrvalue=&CMID=50434|50444&Fltr=&Srt=&QL=F&IND=1&cmVirtualCat=&CmCatId=50434|50444|64328

Its a really cute fit, and I would wear it again to many different places.

You’ll want a conservative, light fall dress that you can cover up if you need to be warmer, but jersey is always nice. You don’t have to be super dressed up, but now is not the time for casual sun dresses either lol

A dress in pale pink, sage or pastel teal for daytime would look nice. If its a night wedding maybe try a champagne, purple or rust colored dress. All are stunning.

I would wear a bright colorful dress that is just above the knee in length, a mid heel (2-3 inches, maybe 3.5 at most), a clutch purse and some delicate jewelery.

Definitely a dress, honestly the cut/design/color depends on your aesthetics and comfort level. Go to a department store and see what catches your eye. Good luck!

A dress! Not like wayy to fancy, but not a sundress either! Sort of a semi-formal dress. You don’t want to look underdressed, but don’t want to look too fancy either!
A simple semi formal dress, plus heels (or nice flats), and add a little bit of jewelry, such as a necklace or some bangles will be perfect. Also, don’t carry a large purse! Just a small wristlet or a clutch if you need.
I would recommend a dress that hits above your knee, and either some really nice flats, or heels about 2-3 inches. Just pick something that looks good on you! :)

HeadFirst took the words out of my mouth :)

Aim for pretty, stylish and tasteful, and err on the conservative side as it’ll be a church ceremony. Different churches have different interpretations of what constitutes dressing appropriately, so you’ll already know if yours has any spoken or unspoken “rules” are about clothing, e.g., strapless dresses.

The convention is for wedding guests to avoid wearing white – and I’d add to that any off-white colour like ivory or cream, and if you know the bride is wearing a colour like very pale gold or pale pink, avoid that too. If you know what colour the bridesmaids are wearing or can find out, don’t wear that either.

Wedding invitations usually fit with the colour scheme of a wedding, so they can act as good hints. For example, if I received an invitation with a lot of blue on it, it’d be likely that blue would make an appearance in the outfits of the bridesmaids and groomsmen, the colour of the flowers, venue decorations etc, so I wouldn’t make blue one of the main colours of my outfit.

If in doubt, a printed dress is a good way to go. Team it with a cropped blazer or a pretty cardigan, classic heels or embellished flats, and fairly understated jewellery – a statement necklace, bracelet or hair ornament would all be fab, but no more than one bold piece unless everyone knows that’s your thing. Make sure your shoes are comfy because there can be a lot of standing around at weddings. Some venues forbid stiletto heels because they can make mincemeat out of certain kinds of flooring, so sturdy heels or wedges would be a good option.
