Smack-dab in the middle of autumn, when incessant rains ensue, and when colder weather takes over, even then, fashion always finds a way. At least that’s true for romantic autumn weddings, soaked in sunny yellow, orange, and caramel brown, all perfectly warm ways to bring out your bubbly, floral self, and make sure that the celebration of someone’s love is dressed in its most autumn-worthy ensemble.

That includes you, of course, since there’s no excuse to delay preparing for this memorable occasion and finding your most authentic dress code for the wedding. Sometimes, the fashionable devil is in the detail, and at other times, you’ll find your most ravishing piece of clothing to speak volumes of your style. Here are the essentials every autumn wedding guest should keep in mind for a perfect sunny autumn wedding, even one drenched in raindrops!

Embrace Velvet For Autumn Weddings

It’s feminine, graceful, and it exudes warmth as you can basically feel it under your fingertips as soon as you land your eyes on a velvet dress. That is precisely why so many bridesmaids, as well as wedding guests, opt for this classy fabric for fall, and you’ll be happy to discover that velvet dresses come in many hues that are easy to match to your favorite shoes.

Pick A Scarf Or A Pashmina

When you go for the off-shoulder look, you need to factor in the weather and the possible cold you might encounter when you go to the ceremony, especially if it’s outdoors. A simple, yet stylish way to offset the cold and add some zest to your look is to add a cashmere-made pashmina or a simple square silk scarf with an interesting print. It will keep your shoulders warm and bring some contrast to your look.

Accessories for your autumn wedding

Think Creative Accessories Thoughts

Autumn is not always perfect for high-maintenance hairdos when you risk ending up with a look as if you’ve just rode in on a motorcycle, without a helmet. Add some rain into the mix, and any hardcore hair products will crumble under pressure. Simple is the way to go, and all you need is a set of stylish scrunchies to collect your hair into a loose bun, a French braid with a few loose locks, or a low ponytail. Add some delicate hair accessories such as a hair clip, or a hair grip, and you’ll add some glam to your hairstyle!

Waterproof, Long-Lasting Makeup

In addition to tears of joy that can wreck your mascara, you should keep in mind that possible rain or other weather issues, so it’s best to keep things under control. By that, we mean, bring out the big guns, the ones that can resist the rain. From a spotless long-lasting lippie, all the way to a water-resistant mascara, use your makeup essentials for a simple look that will not budge under any type of weather pressure.

Jewelry for your autumn wedding

Baubles That Won’t Go Unnoticed

The bride is in the spotlight, and your jewelry shouldn’t steal even the tiniest glimpse of that spotlight, so choose pieces that are subtle, yet stunning, so your plus one will certainly compliment you. Consider a pair of pearl earrings, simple but timeless, or a minimal pendant necklace that will add some substance to your dress. Otherwise, layers and statement pieces are out of the question, but a little can really go a long way when it comes to picking the right accessories for your autumn wedding look.

Autumn-Friendly Shoes

It all depends on the venue and the weather, since an outdoor wedding calls for footwear that can take the rougher terrain, and colder weather means you should go for something to keep your feet cozy and warm. Especially if you intend to stay late into the night, you can wear ankle booties or even full-length boots depending on your attire. Closed-toe shoes, in general, are a good idea, even if you opt for a more casual pair. Add some metallic shades to the mix to elevate their look, and even a very low heel will look fab on you.

Bouquets for your autumn weddingFloral Patterns Are All The Rage

Although flowers are considered more of a summer and spring choice, there are autumn florals you can pull off stunningly for this particular occasion. Maxi dresses, in particular, are a brilliant idea for autumn, since they’ll keep you warm, and you’ll stay comfortable no matter if the ceremony is indoors or not. If you’re not a fully-floral person (yet, because we all succumb eventually), you can go for a black base with some floral embroidery as well.

Autumn weddings have all the potential for romance and glam that the other three seasons have, too. However, guests typically struggle to find the right outfit, so use this little guide to take the hassle away and make the choices somewhat easier on you so that you can focus on the fun and joy instead!
