If you’re at the age where it seems like all of your friends are getting married, then you’ve probably been invited to your fair share of weddings.

Weddings are exciting, joyous occasions, but they can also be somewhat stressful and expensive.

If you’ve accepted several invitations, it can be difficult to figure out what type of gift to purchase and what to wear to the event.

Dressing for a wedding can be tough, particularly for women, and specifically because fall and winter are less popular times of the year for nuptials.

These seasons yield beautiful settings for weddings, but it’s important to find ways to dress appropriately. Not sure what to choose? Keep these tips in mind when planning your outfit.

Keep Color in Mind

Obviously you don’t want to dress in white, but consider a cooler tones for fall weddings. Jewel tones and darker hues complement the season and make you look classy and sophisticated. This fall, emerald is especially trendy, along with red and purple.

Be Tasteful

Whether you’re attending a casual event or a black tie affair always be tasteful. There’s no reason you can’t look beautiful and sexy, but keep an eye on the neck and hem lines of your top picks to see if they’re appropriate for the event you’re attending.

Try Prints

A rich pattern can add interest, class, and sophistication to even the simplest styles. Avoid summery (palm prints and florals) or bright patterns to help stay in the autumn theme.

Focus on Fabric

Autumn allows you to choose thicker, more luxurious fabrics than in summer. A thicker fabric is more appropriate for the season and will help keep you warm. Textured fabric yields a more unique look that is rich and beautiful.

Stay Warm–With Class

Don’t neglect outerwear, particularly for a black tie event. A casual coat can spoil the effect of a perfect wedding outfit. Tights can also help you stay warm– just make sure they work well with the color and length of your outfit.

Look Your Best

While it may be the bride’s day to shine, there’s no reason you can’t feel like a million bucks in your wedding outfit. If you’re feeling insecure about stubborn pockets of fat, then you probably aren’t feeling as confident as you could in that perfect dress.
