What to Wear to a Fall Wedding: 12 Gorgeous Dresses Perfect for You

We love to get all gussied up. The opportunity doesn’t come along nearly as much as we’d like though, so when a wedding invite arrives, we get truly fired up. What’s great about fall weddings is that "season-appropriate" attire doesn’t really apply -  it’s not cold enough to feel silly about wearing dainty pastels, and it’s not hot enough to limit sleeves or heavier fabrics. This being said, having more options can be overwhelming, so we’re here to help. Whether the occasion calls for formal white or black tie, cocktail or semi-formal, we’ve rounded up 12 amazing fall wedding dresses you can feel great in.
