Red, Red Wine

Start with reading a wine label. Catch onto those "notes" like blackberry, plum, chocolate, and now you have the perfect inspiration for your fall wedding attire. Burgundies, maroons, wine, and marsalas are the reigning top hues for autumn and it's time that you prove you're in the know.

There's no hiding the fact that it's colder in the fall, so seeing some cozy formal wear at a wedding is quite normal. Don't bother folding down that turtleneck and embrace fancy warmer fabrics to ensure that the only shivers you have are triggered by the beauty of the occasion.

And That's a Wrap

Wrap yourself tightly in a beautifully patterned or textured dress this fall. Fall weddings are in a time of transition, so no one will question your outfit which seems to be between lingerie, outerwear, and formal wear. Now that's ideal!

Off the Shoulder

Shimmy those bare shoulders this fall at those October and November weddings. The off-the-shoulder sleeve trend is going strong into autumn fashion and is the perfect demure look for a formal event.

Long and Slinky

If you were afraid that your long and slinky dress was a bit much for a summer backyard wedding, it might just be the answer to what to wear to a fall wedding. The additional length along with the sleeves will give you some warmth and coverage, but don't be afraid to show off a little with a slit or v-neckline.
