What To Wear To A Fall Wedding

Surprise! In case you hadn’t noticed, summer is basically over, and that means you should stop complaining about the heat because colder temperatures will be here before you know it. Soon you won’t be able to wear sleeveless tops or dresses without tights, and you’ll need a jacket in the mornings and evenings. Transitional and unpredictable weather is tough to deal with when it comes to deciding what to wear each day, and layering or wearing heavier clothing is usually the answer. However, there is one event that both of those options don’t really suit.

Weddings are expensive, and one of the things that can alleviate costs is shifting the date to the end of September, or even October or November. But if you’re a guest at a fall wedding, figuring out what to wear is even more difficult than it is in the warm weather. Not only do you have to think about the usual rules like no white and not showing too much skin, but now you have to tackle the task of also keeping yourself warm. But never fear! Whether it’s with sleeves, a little length, or even a festive romper, there are tons of great colder-weather wedding options at your disposal. Here, we run down a few that will not only have you the second-best dressed at the wedding (after the bride, of course), but also warm all through the night.


The details on this dress give it enough interest to excuse the sometimes boring black. And the pretty sleeves will keep you warm as temperatures drop.
