What to Wear to a Fall Wedding

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! Fall is a popular season for weddings and with a chill in the air, it can be difficult to decide what to wear. Dressing for a fall wedding calls for a little more glamour, elegance, and a mixture of rich colors and textures. Today I'm so happy to be collaborating with Ada from Elegance & Mommyhood, Marta from Sweaters, Stripes and Sweets and Susan from Charming Lucy to show you how we would style an outfit for a fall wedding. Be sure to stop by their blogs to see their wedding looks!

I love the rich green color of this midi dress, the fitted banded waist and the flouncy circle skirt. I kept accessories minimal with an embellished gold belt, pearl statement necklace, small bag and heels. 

You never know what the weather's going to do so I added my ivory faux fur shrug. It's a more elegant option than a jacket and the 3/4 sleeves are the perfect length for in between seasons to keep you warm and still stay stylish.

Dress: Girls from Savory (option)(option) / Shrug: Cabi (option) / Necklace: (option)
Heels: Aldo option /Belt: Anthropologie (option) / Sunnies:Brighton

Special thanks to Ada for this collaboration idea!

  25. Awww this is such a great idea for a blogger collab - love all the outfits! But I'm so loving your flowy olive dress - it's so sexy, fun and versatile!


  26. That dress is so flattering. A perfect shade of emerald green and I love the shrug. I am cold all the time, but I do find that at weddings the moment you sit down to a meal it is always too hot, so I love the idea of bare shoulders with a shawl.

    I really like that out of the four looks your is the most formal.....a part of me longs for a wedding just to have a reason to get formal. There are so many occasions for dressing down, but not enough to dress up. I would love to have you link up again this week at the #reasonstodress real mom street style linkup, hope you can make it!

  33. That neckline is so seductive. Also the fur shrug manages to give it that "old hollywood" glamour vibe--and your makeup only contributes to the starlet look!
