Are you from New England, or is this an out-of-town wedding for you? Weather in late September can vary a lot in New England. Sometimes it still feels like the height of summer, and sometimes it’s freezing in the evening. Cape Cod does tend to have more moderate temperatures, though. I would wear a knee-length or tea-length dress in a not-too-thin fabric. I’d probably wear closed-toe pumps and keep an emergency pair of flats in your car in case the ground is muddy or uneven. Definitely bring a fairly thick cardigan or blazer with you. In late September, some people are already wearing tights with their dresses if it’s cold, so it would be good if you got a dress that works with or without tights, and then you could decide based on weather.

I agree with all of what LavenderHouse: said, and I also want to add..I would recommend sticking with a dress that is more form fitting than flowy. Being by the ocean, the wind can be both brutal and sudden on the Cape, so I’d hate to be worried about my dress flying up!
