I cannot believe that Fall is already half over. It seems like just yesterday we were eating red, white & blue cupcakes and sipping cold beer on the 4th of July. With the east coast still suffering the effects of Sandy, it is impossible to say it has been a good Fall so far. But for many of us life continues as normal and that includes attending Fall weddings for friends and family.
Summer weddings tend to be easy to dress for – light colors and flowy fabrics. Fall is a little more difficult as the weather is unpredictable and daylight hours are shorter. Before choosing an outfit, contact the bride and ask what the attire will be (sometimes the invitation will specify this). That way you will fit right in!
Here are three outfit ideas to fit any Fall wedding theme.
1) Evening Cocktail Wedding.
Cocktail events near the holidays are always fun because you can play dress up. Here you can channel your inner Joan with this Mad Men-esque attire.
2) Daytime Outdoor Wedding
With Fall leaves as a backdrop, any outdoor wedding is sure to be beautiful. Fit right in with a nature inspired ensemble. Be sure to bring layers to keep warm!
3) Formal Nighttime Wedding
Who says you can’t wear black to a wedding? (My friend Laura proves it with her Audrey-inspired wedding look). This look can also be worn to holiday parties, so it’s a two-fer.
