 Hello! I’m Andrea, the hair behind Blonde Bedhead and I’m back to take over the LuLu*s blog to share what to wear for three different wedding styles. With pretty fall colors and cooler weather, it’s no surprise October has become one of my busiest months to shoot weddings (and attend as a guest!) Today is part two of three this week to show what to wear to various fall weddings.

There’s nothing like a fall outdoor wedding at a farm or restored barn where rustic details meet fall color changes. This is by far my favorite style of wedding during my favorite time of year. I just want to prance through the fields and farms and kick my heels in the air.

FashionFall Wedding Style with Andrea of Blonde Bedhead: Romantic Venue

With October being an increasingly popular time of year to get married, this has left us wondering, “what to wear?” Our friend Andrea over at Blonde Bedhead counts wedding photography as one of her many talents so she is constantly heading to various venues and different style weddings. Sometimes it can be challenging to find the right piece for each occasion and to anticipate what to wear based on the information given. For this series, Andrea will show us 3 different style wedding venues with advice on what to wear so you are both dressed to code and stylishly appropriate! Read below for more details!

Hi everyone! I’m Andrea and I blog over at Blonde Bedhead! I am so excited to share my styling advice for Fall weddings! For intimate weddings at venues like the English Inn, the attire calls for color to match the natural beauty of the estate. Gardens, historic architecture and a quiet countryside make it a perfect location for a fall wedding. And fun to dress up for!

 With fall weddings at similar locations, you’ll spend time both indoors and outdoors for the ceremony and reception. For this intimate, romantic location, I chose an easy maxi dress with a kimono and heels. A bold maxi dress with a floral kimono fits the dress code, but it’s also comfortable and practical. You can layer the kimono for the outside ceremony and shed it once you’re ready to hit the dance floor!

Tip: Pack flats to change into during the cocktail hour! This is your opportunity to roam the gardens and it’s just easier in flats. I’ve stumbled and have had my heels sink in grass too many times to not finally learn my lesson!

Leather trim trousers

Hi everyone! This is my final post in the fall series with LuLu*s and today we’re tackling the sporty trend.  Slouchy & track-style pants are totally in for the season, which is a major bonus for those of us who crave comfortable pieces that still look stylish!

Track pants

 I personally like to add a heel when wearing looser-fitting pants because it elongates the leg line & adds a feminine touch.  These pants have such a modern feel & I love the faux leather detailing on the side.  

Neutrals + plaid

I chose to pair them with more tailored pieces to balance out the sporty vibe, but you could just as easily wear them with a graphic tee & leather jacket for a cool weekend look.  

Trench + relaxed trousers

I hope you’ve enjoyed this week’s posts & have gotten some good ideas for how to style these new trends with pieces you already own.  Thanks so much to LuLu*s for partnering with me!

What I’m wearing:

Trench (similar),  blouse (similar here or here), sweater (similar here or here), c/o LuLu*s Pants, heels ( similar here), Vintage clutch, watch (similar), bracelet (similar)
