What to Wear to a Fall Wedding

The dress code for a fall wedding will usually be indicated on the invitation. If it is not specified, you can always ask the couple or their wedding planner for clarification.

Fall weather can be unpredictable, so it is important to choose an outfit that is both stylish and weather-appropriate. If the wedding is outdoors, you may want to bring a jacket or sweater to keep warm in the evening. If it is indoors, you will want to choose an outfit that is comfortable enough to dance in.

Fall weddings are a great time to wear rich jewel tones and warm fabrics like velvet, wool, and silk. Some popular fall wedding colors include burgundy, emerald green, navy blue, plum, mustard yellow, and deep orange.

Outfit Ideas for Men

The right accessories can really elevate your outfit. For a fall wedding, consider adding a scarf, shawl, or jacket to your look. You can also add a statement necklace or earrings. If you are wearing a dress, you may want to consider wearing tights or stockings to stay warm. If you are wearing a skirt or pants, you may want to wear boots or flats in case the terrain is uneven.


– Dress in layers so that you can adjust to the temperature changes. – Choose comfortable shoes that you can dance in. – Avoid wearing anything too white or too black, as this can clash with the bride's dress. – If you are unsure about what to wear, err on the side of caution and dress more formally.
