What to Wear to a Fall Wedding

How To Wear A Tunic Sweater

A text message over the weekend from my cousin prompted me to pull together a few outfit ideas for fall weddings. They can be tricky, particularly in New England, as some days are in the high 70s but nights are typically chilly. Some of my favorite fall trends, plaid, velvet, and florals, all work well for an autumn affair whether it’s black-tie, cocktail or casual attire.

What to Wear to a Fall Wedding


Plaid, at a wedding? Yes. This season’s plaids are updated in wearable patterns that are perfect for the next nuptials on your calendar. I paired this plaid maxi by Vetiver with a black turtleneck to up the cozy factor for chillier weather. The lace trim and attached sash that ties at that back make it feminine and flattering. Pair it with faux fur heels and dance the night away.


There are so many good velvet dresses for fall I don’t even know where to begin. This one by Donna Morgan is definitely a favorite. It’s the most stunning blue and the silhouette is incredibly flattering. Scroll through for a few more favorites in stunning colors for fall.


This seasons florals are updated in richer shades that feel very autumn appropriate. I love this dress from Anthropologie for a fall wedding.

Jumpsuits & Rompers

Switch it up this wedding season and opt for a jumpsuit or romper. This lace jumpsuit is super comfortable, comes in three colors and has pockets.

    The velvet dress is my favorite. It also could be worn to a winter wedding because of the sleeves. I don’t love indoor weddings when the weather is still so good but indoor weddings do give a girl a lot more outfit options in the fall and winter. You’ve listed so many pretty dresses, thanks for sharing!
