What to Wear to An Autumn Wedding

Summer is usually considered wedding season, but autumn weddings are for those who like to do things a little differently. If you’re attending an autumn wedding this year, you may be wondering what’s best to wear given the unpredictable weather. In the summer it’s easy enough to find a classic dress with strappy heels to create the perfect wedding look. However, autumn is where you can really get creative with your style. Here are some top tips on how to style yourself for an autumn wedding:

Jumpsuit or Dress?

Try to steer away from a typical floral dress for an autumn wedding and think about layering your outfit. For a stylish, sophisticated look choose a jumpsuit with clutch bag. Jumpsuits are ideal for autumn weddings as they’re perfect for any weather. Alternatively, opt for a long dress or A-line skirt with a fitted top for a sleek, comfortable look. If jumpsuits and dresses aren’t your thing, then a tailored suit with glamorous blouse or shirt underneath is the ultimate wedding guest look for an autumn wedding. Even if you don’t want to layer up for the photographs or inside the venue itself, it’s always a good idea to bring a jacket to drape over your shoulders just in case.


Accessories for an autumn wedding should be simple and understated, ladies fashion watches and delicate rings are a good place to start. Summer weddings are the time of year for bright colours and patterns, including geometric jewellery or over-the-top feathered earrings. Autumn wedding jewellery should be kept minimalistic, with block colours like silver and gold leading the way. Pendant necklaces are perfect for weddings, making any outfit look instantly dressier. Alternatively, keep it smart with a rose gold mesh watch or bracelet, creating a timeless look that’s ideal for a wedding. Clutch bags are a firm favourite for weddings, but equally any kind of compact bag is useful.

The Perfect Shoes

Long gone are the summer days where you could wear heeled strappy shoes for the big day. You can wear boots to an autumn wedding, or even smart flat shoes. Giving you more options for outfit combinations. It’s important to invest in a good pair of comfortable wedding shoes as you’ll be in them all day! Choose a pair that you’ll likely wear again, as often we can be guilty of buying wedding shoes and boxing them up never to be worn again.

To ensure that you’re nailing the autumn wedding fashion, don’t forget about the finer details like nude makeup and a stylish up-do. Plan your outfit a few weeks in advance so you have everything you need and won’t need to rush around before the big day. Autumn wedding style is the best style! So, experiment with your look and have fun layering up.
