Am I weird to be happy about September being around the corner? Sure, the cooler days and shorter nights are coming but that doesn’t have to be a bad thing. So I don’t know about you but I’m pretty happy to start embracing the knitwear-friendly weather, quite honestly and forget about the past few weeks. But before the truly cold temperatures kick in there’s still a good amount of wedding season we need to consider, and everyone knows that September weddings are the most fun. Less sweating over your Prosecco and more options for outerwear, I’d say this month is ideal to attend various nuptials.
As usual, our attentions are drawn to the major question of what to wear to a September wedding. As I mentioned, there are more options for outerwear, sleeves too are much more palatable and suits become a more understandable choice. If you’ve got a backlog of weddings you’ve been invited to this coming month, then I have good news. I’ve tracked down seven key looks that are not only on-trend for the season but are also classic wedding guest outfit looks. Keep scrolling for inspiration on what to wear to a September wedding and beyond.
Style Notes: Monochrome outfits never looked so good. For a truly stunning choice, opt for an all-over bold colour such as this hot pink.
A cowl neckline is an elegant choice for a wedding.
This one truly pops.
Opt for a shoe you’ll be comfy in all day.
Style Notes: The whole Who What Wear team really has a thing for waistcoats and pleated trousers right now and even better if they’re matching. Wear with courts or sandals and chuck on the matching blazer if it’s cool.
I love the slightly longer length on this UO waistcoat.
A staple you can wear time and time again.
This glitzy bag will take your look from everyday to event-ready.

When in doubt, a floral midi makes a great wedding guest outfit.
These would also work well with a tailored ensemble.
Nothing says outdoor wedding like a straw handbag.
