Whether a cute jacket or a longer bell sleeve, the rich colors and fabrics associated with fall fashion allow wedding guests to play with styles they otherwise wouldn’t.

We rounded up some of our top picks from local boutiques. Read on for all the details:

Am I the only one that wants a glass of merlot to go with this dress? Pair it with a classic shoe or fun earrings and you’ll be ready for a festive fall evening.

Although weddings are all about white, this dress will make everyone think pink. What’s so great is that you can style the sleeves to be full length or shorter if you get warm!

We love an outfit–and a power pony–that works for various occasions, and this dress does just that. Not only would it look fabulous on a wedding guest, but also on a working boss babe.

This dress is giving me all of the sugar and spice vibes.. And let’s be honest, nothing says “I’m here” quite like a power suit.
