So you got invited to a fall wedding…if your anything like me the first question that pops into your mind would be “What am I going to wear?” The majority of fall weddings tend to be a little more formal than spring weddings due to the season and weather. This definitely limits your selection of fabulous dresses, but it also allows you to indulge in something a little more dramatic. A fall wedding would be a perfect time to break out that perfect LBD (little black dress) or even that gorgeous long sleeve lace cocktail dress that you’ve been dying to wear. Just nothing too revealing like a plunging neckline or an all bright brick/fire red, light red may be ok, you don’t want to stand out too much and take attention away from the bride. Another word of advice is to, first, know what the color theme of the wedding is. Nothing is more embarrassing than showing up in the same dress as a bridesmaid…well of course if you wear white, that’s just ignorant. Second, stray away from any satin ivory colors or blush hues. Anything that is too light and airy will just look a bit off at a fall wedding where the color themes tend to be deep hues of royal blue and rich purple and gold. Third, I know this wedding rule is ridiculous because I appreciate more than anyone a bright red dress but, don’t be that woman. An old wives tale myth says, “A woman who wears red to a wedding is looking for a good romp in the bed.”
With that said and the ground rules laid out here are some options for wedding guest dresses…In no particular order.
