What to wear to a fall wedding

For many people, fall is the perfect month to get married. It’s still usually pretty sunny. The chances of getting snow are basically zero. Plus, you get to avoid some of the peak summer wedding chaos. We’ll be honest; fall weddings are catching on, so there’s still quite a bit of competition for those venues, but not as much as July.

When it comes to wedding gowns, not a ton changes between the summer and the early fall. If you’ve chosen a long dress, you’ll be warm enough for a fall breeze during a photo shoot and don’t really need to start thinking about fur shawls yet (although we love those, obviously). Your guests, on the other hand, might need to think before sporting their short, flowing sun dresses. Autumn is breezy, people! Thankfully, we’re here to help and have collected our favourite fall wedding guest dresses.

Long Sleeves

If you’ve been working on your tan all summer and refuse to cover up those bronzed legs, opt for a dress that gives you a little extra fabric in the sleeve and either has some structure in the skirt or a slimmer silhouette in case the wind kicks up.


An autumn wedding is the perfect time to wear a gorgeous maxi dress. Unless the wedding is super informal, make sure that your maxi is made out of a more formal fabric (not cotton jersey) and dress it up with heels and accessories. You don’t want to look like you’ve come back from a day at the beach.


Fall weddings, like winter weddings, are often a little more formal than summer nuptials, so take advantage and rock a figure flattering dress with lots of structure. This kind of a dress would probably be too hot in the summer (especially if you’re wearing shapewear underneath), so you’ll be comfortable in these slightly cooler temperatures.

As always, Parkers Custom Clothing Care is here to help when the party is over and your dress is showing memories of wine spills, food stains, or even just dancing all night. Schedule for us to come and pick up your dress for dry cleaning at no extra charge so that you can get some much-needed rest after all of that celebrating.
