Ah, the ever-complicated topic of wedding guest apparel. There are so many options and now so many different kinds of weddings that it can easily become a seriously tricky situation. Do you pull a Lindsay Lohan and forget the rules by wearing white to that super fancy soiree? Can you wear trousers to a city hall wedding? If you’re in need of a little guidance or inspiration, scroll on down to see the looks we pulled for everything from an outdoor ceremony to a black-tie affair.

What to Wear to a Traditional Fall Wedding

Sure, it’s the bride’s big day, but you want to look great too, right? Play up the drama just the right amount in this dress that’ll match the changing autumn leaves. We’re all about color, so we paired the silky gown with these abalone-inspired earrings, but if you want to tone it down a bit, it would look just as great with a classic pair of diamond studs.

What to Wear to a Fall City Hall Ceremony

If the couple’s ceremony is super low key, feel free to rock something a little more casual. To keep this from looking too much like an office outfit, we went for trousers that had a little something extra and accessories that had a little bit of glam power. If you want something to make this look come off just a little bit more formal, add in a bold red or burgundy lip.

What to Wear to a Black Tie Wedding in the Fall

Oh, you fancy, huh? If the soiree you’re attending is a super formal affair, make sure you dress the part. We’re major fans of this Jill Stuart dress because, while it is ultra-formal, the polka dots give it a playful vibe. Keep that spirit going strong by adorning the gown in colorful accessories like color blocked heels and some statement drop earrings.

What to Wear to an Outdoor Fall Wedding

If you’re headed to a ceremony that’s taking place under the changing leaves, make sure you’re prepared for that fresh fall breeze. Don’t let blah outerwear ruin your outfit though. Keep yourself looking stylish and covered up in this two-piece combo and top it off with a chunky necklace and faux fur coat.
