What to Wear to a Formal Fall Wedding

What to Wear to a Formal Fall Wedding

Did you know that late summer to early fall is one of the most popular times to get married? If you’re planning on attending a wedding in the coming months, it’s time to figure out what you’ll wear.


What should I wear to a formal fall wedding?

Before you go shopping, check the invitation or wedding website for specific attire instructions. Most invitations will denote the dress code for the event.

For black-tie weddings in the fall, men should wear tuxedos and women should opt for a floor-length gown. Semi-formal attire is more common and, while it is less formal than black-tie, it still calls for suits and dresses. Men should wear a suit and tie (jacket optional) and women should wear a cocktail dress.


What if the dress code is not specified?

If the dress code is not noted, use your best judgment based on the venue and time of day of the event. You can usually get a feel for the tone of the event based on the style choices on the invitation. Calligraphy is usually a sign of a fancier wedding, while more trendy font choices might signal a more casual event.


Jewelry Glam is A MUST for a Formal Wedding 

While you can’t go wrong with diamond jewelry accents, we also love to bring in color with beautiful statement earrings. Crème de Pêche, Peach Pink, and Bluestone are just a few of the colors noted in Pantone’s Fashion Color Trend Report for the upcoming fall and winter season.


Add some glam to your black-tie dress with a lovely lilac color like in these Tacori “Lilac Blossoms” Earrings.
