Just because the weather is cooling down for Fall, doesn’t mean that you can’t rock your best cocktail dress to a fancy event. And if you’re anything like us, then you cherish moments that you get to dress up and saunter into a room. Our most favorite occasion for this mood is a wedding! While we constantly round up some of the best plus size bridal gowns, what about you… the guest? You need a few fun options, too… right?
So we’ve gathered a few hot looks to have you turning heads to that upcoming Fall wedding, but that won’t get you thrown out of the wedding for upstaging the bride.
Plus Size Cocktail Dresses Perfect for a Fall Wedding
This Joyce Maxi Plus Wrap Dress is such an elegant show stopper, that we rushed to put it on the list as a top option. First of all, wrap dresses are a architecturally perfect because they adapt perfectly to most body types. But instead of dropping the mic there, this dress also has a soft, sketch floral pattern to give your look a dainty touch. Pair with nude accessories, and even a bit of baby’s breath in your hair as a finishing touch.
Chic and Curvy has a gift for giving us classy and sexy. The Off the Shoulder Faux Wrap Skater Dress is not only a great option for your curvy bridesmaid, but even better for the wedding guest. As a guest, we’d add in a pair of lovely gold or black strappy heels (make sure you can still dance in them) and a matching clutch. No necklace needed, since you would definitely want to show off that neckline.
We are in love with this romantic Fashion Nova Waltz Of The Flowers dress. With a name like that, it kinda sounds like it’s about to go down at this wedding. Since there’s so glamour going on with the stitched flowers and the floor length, you could actually get away with wearing a nude flat or sandal with this dress. But be sure to keep an eye on the weather and take a shawl with you just in case it gets chilly.
For the funky diva, Jibri presents the Tribal Print V Neck Slouch dress. There’s not much else that needs to be done to make this look pop, so don’t even think about over-accessorizing (unless you’re a pro). Style and massive confidence are key, so be sure to practice your Liris Crosse supermodel looks in the mirror before you leave the house.
Who says that you have to rock black? Why not have a little fun in this Luzena Ruffle Hem Maxi Dress, which is a fun departure from fall’s darker hues. Add a few metallics from your shoes to your bag, to maximize your look. You will sure to be Fall wedding ready!
At this point, you probably realize that a floral print is your best bet for wedding attire. You really can’t go wrong! Forever 21 Plus has this adorable Floral Print Midi Dress to show off those curves and keep it cute, sis.
Pretty Little Thing knew they would be playing with our feelings with this emerald green, Floral Print Long Sleeve pleated midi dress. First of all, it has sleeves, so no need for a cardigan. Second off, floral. (We just talked about this, y’all!) And lastly, pleats are trending this Fall, so be prepared.
Lace is a timeless classic when it comes to weddings. It totally plays into that whole “something old” theme, even if it’s not actually old. We would call this blush pink lace button shirt dress a “vintage-inspired look.” To be worn dressed up with heels or down with cute flats, you will fit right in with the rest of your vintage glam gang at the wedding.
We also get kinda geeked when one of our fave designers partners with a brand we love. In this case, Target and Zac Posen bring us tons of fun and flirty looks for Fall. We plucked out this Floral Print Sleeveless Brocade Mini Dress from the bunch and fell madly in love. It is such a perfect cocktail dress, in addition to having such a cute faux bow in the front. We vote “yes please!”
We feel like we had to end this list with a solid go-to look for any wedding. Rebdolls’ “Halo” Over The Shoulder Ruffled Maxi Dress is elegant without being over the top. You can definitely dress this one up, but you’ll do just find adding a simple necklace, studded earrings and a matching bracelet. Throw in a comfy shoe of your choosing, and you’re all set!
