best dressed wedding guest

One of the most common requests I receive here on Lonestar Southern is for wedding guest dress ideas. During this season of my life, and for many of you too from what it sounds like, there always seems to be another wedding on the horizon… and with it, the need for a fabulous wedding guest dress!

It can be challenging to find something appropriate and comfortable as well as trendy and fun, especially as we transition out of summer and into autumn! So today, I’m thrilled to be partnering with Nordstrom in sharing a few of my favorite frocks from their collection that will ensure you are the best-dressed wedding guest.

When the seasons change, making room for crisp weather and colorful leaves, I find myself picking hues to match. Rich burgundies, warm tans, deep navies, and my personal favorite… hunter greens. There’s something romantic about a wedding guest dress in these deep tones, which is why this beautiful midi dress caught my eye!

Not only is the color perfect for fall events, the fit is impeccable, too! The brand of this dress, Reformation, carries styles that accentuate the smallest part of your waist, creating a universally flattering silhouette.

The creamy, soft fabric is another reason this dress is one I highly recommend. It makes for an incredibly comfortable ensemble, and one that moves beautifully as you walk, sit or, my favorite, dance. Oh, and did I mention it’s right under $100?

To make it wedding-ready, I paired it with some elegant statement earrings in the same rich green shade, some strappy sandals and a sleek black clutch. All in all, it’s perfect for any rehearsal dinner or wedding you have coming up!

It’s no secret that I love shopping at Nordstrom. Hard not to when the selection is as wonderful as the customer service! I always find a fabulous selection of what’s new and now in their Trend category, and this season it’s looking like midi length dresses, ruffle details and camisole silhouettes. Yes, please!

Here are a few other wedding guest favorites I found that check all the boxes of this season’s most popular styles:
