What to Wear:
Fall Wedding Edition

You have an invitation on your fridge and absolutely no idea what to wear. No worries—here are a few ideas for how to dress for a fall wedding, with occasion dresses starting at just $99.95.

Casual Wedding

If the ceremony and reception are on the simpler side, choose an easy shift dress with a cool detail. Finish the look with a metallic handbag and understated heels.

Style Tip:

Don't forget to grab a jacket! Early fall days can still feel like summer, but it gets quite chilly at night. A denim jacket adds edge and keeps things casual.

Semi-Formal Wedding

Fun crystal embellishments feel refined when scattered atop a slim sheath dress. Sparkly heels and accessories are the perfect accompaniments.

Style Tip:

Usher in fall with a rich shade of wine. You'll look seasonally appropriate and totally on trend.

Formal Wedding

When you've got a black-tie event on the horizon, try a mermaid gown. One with a high neckline and metallic lace appliques feels suitably dramatic for a fancy reception.

Style Tip:

Destination Wedding

An easy-to-pack, super-flowy maxi dress is the epitome of destination wedding dressing. Breezy and cool with a little bit of drama, you'll feel tropical and dressy.

Style Tip:

Rose gold accessories pick up the pink tones in floral dresses—and destination sunsets.

Mother of the Bride & Groom

A structured design with flattering details (think: cold shoulders and a cinched waist) make mom shine. Extra-embellished shoes and accessories guarantee she'll stand out among the well-wishers.
