In summer, it’s all about floaty fabrics (for the heat) and bright colours (for the sun), but weddings in autumn and winter call for a more pared back style. Out come the luxurious fabrics and deep colours – it’s time for drama! And if you’re on the hunt for what to wear to an autumn wedding, we’ve got your covered with these gorgeous options, whatever your budget.
1. LADY IN RED
This gorgeous silk-satin midi dress ticks all the right boxes – it hits the asymmetric trend right on the head, and that colour – siren alert! The pin-thin straps and crossover back finish things off beautifully.
2. DISCO DIVA
You’ll be all set to cut a rug on the dancefloor in this sequin number. If you fancy feeling like a true disco diva, there’s no better time to don the sequins and make like Diana Ross – just keep it pared down with the accessories.
3. EMBROIDERED ELEGANZA
There’s just something about luxurious, embroidered fabrics that makes sense at this time of year, and this floor-length dress is a guaranteed stunner for an autumn wedding. Apart from being absolutely gorgeous, it also looks like it could protect you from that wintery chill in the air – making it a definite win-win!
4. WRAP PERFECTION
Everyone loves a good wrap dress, and this one’s got a pretty Eastern twist. The colours are fantastic for this transition period – especially that beautiful sage green – and the long sleeves will keep out the chill if the temperature drops later in the evening.
Pretty Little Thing
5. FEMININE SUITING
You can always trust Zara to give you something that’s just a little bit out of the ordinary, and this exquisite floral jacquard jacket and trousers set is just that. For the guest that wants to do things differently, but still stand out from the crowds of suited gents – this one’s a winner!
6. STARRY SKY
Just because its autumn, doesn’t mean you can’t do a floaty number. This fantastic gown by Marchesa Notte finds inspiration in the starry sky, and it sure is dreamy. Constructed out of layered ombré tulle decorated with clusters of silver glitter, we can’t think of a better way to be the belle of the ball (second only to the bride, of course).
7. FALL FLORALS
Another floral outfit that’s perfect for fall, this beaded beauty features intricate hand-embellishment and is one of only 620 made, ever! We’re in love with the elegant high-neck silhouette and all that detail: hand-placed sequins and beads on mesh give an ethereal effect.
8. FANTASTIC FUSCHIA
Ok yes, it’s another one from Monsoon, but we’re sorry – who can resist that fabulous colour? And that’s not to mention the silhouette… made of heavy satin featuring a chic V-neck silhouette with cross-over straps and a fantastic full skirt, this just HAD to make it into our list.
9. SCALLOPED SEX APPEAL
The scalloped edge on this jumpsuit takes it from a classic LBJ (that’s Little Black Jumpsuit, to you and me), to something a little more special. It’s sleek and chic, with just the right amount of playful, making it the perfect alternative to a dress on those autumn and winter occasions.
10. VELVET JUMPSUIT
This velvet jumpsuit has got us throwing all the rule books out the window – we’re in love, and it looks so comfy to boot! The lustrous grey velvet is fantastic for the season, and the loose silhouette means you can tuck in on those canapes without a care in the world. For added sex appeal, layer it over a lace bra – but always keep it classy.
