What to wear to an Autumn wedding

DECIDING on which outfit to wear to an Autumn wedding reception can be a difficult task, as you figure out which clothes will look stylish while keeping warm.

From smart, sophisticated and proper to glam, adventurous and edgy, there are hundreds options to choose from, depending on your personal style and the formality of the event.

With a few tweaks to items already in your wardrobe, you can make existing trousers, dresses and blazers work for an autumn wedding.

To help you choose the best outfit for that upcoming autumn wedding, we’ve styled some sleek wedding guest looks, so you can catch that bouquet in style!

The best dresses to wear to an autumn wedding

As the winter months creep ever closer, there's every chance the temperature at an autumn wedding might be on the cooler side.

Weather-proof your outfit by choosing sleeves or a longer length dress to stay warm all day and evening.

You don't have to opt for full sleeves to warm up - three-quarter or elbow-length options will also save you from the cold.

Meanwhile, midi or maxi dresses will keep your pins warm while looking elegant.

The best jackets to wear to an autumn wedding

Showing off your shoulders might seem like a good idea in the day time, but as the evening progresses you'll wish you'd brought a jacket.

A trench coat in muted pink, navy or beige is a great option as these timeless shades compliment a variety of colour schemes.

Meanwhile, a girly dress is best matched with something classic like a cropped jacket.

Alternatively, more adventurous dressers might like to wear something more daring like a print, with polka dots and flowers.

The best shoes to wear to an autumn wedding

If you're not sure how to complete your autumn wedding outfit, fear not, there's a huge range of stylish formal shoes around right now.

We love heels in neutral tones like white, beige and nude, to let your outfit do the talking while keeping the look classy.

You don't have to wear sky-high heels to look like you've made an effort with mid or low heels, or even flats if you plan to dance all night.

The best outfits to wear to an autumn wedding

Not sure what to team that stunning dress or trendy pair of trousers with?
Wedding outfits can be tough to put together, so we've put together a handful of outfits to inspire your autumn wedding guest look.
Make a statement in an androgynous oversized suit or match your jacket and dress for an on-trend fashion ensemble.

Suited and booted

If you don't fancy wearing a dress to a wedding, fear not, as there are hundreds of other days to get dressed up for the occasion.

Wearing a suit is a great way to show you're making a real effort, even if looking girly isn't your vibe.

Soften the androgynous look with delicate nude shoes and a beaded bag.

Nice and Neutral

Wearing white to a wedding might be a cardinal sin, but you can get away with it if you go for a printed dress, off-white accessories and a different coloured cover up.

A grey cardigan goes with almost any formal look and will keep the chill at bay during outdoor drink receptions or when you're heading home after a long night on the dance floor.

Pretty in Pink

Just because a wedding date is set in autumn doesn't mean you should rule out pastel tones like pink or blue.

Colour blocking is an on-trend way to add eye-catching hues like blush and peach to an outfit.

We love this stunning Reiss matching dress and jacket combo, which is perfect for wedding guests or the mother of the bride.

What should you not wear to an autumn wedding?

Wedding guests should steer clear of white and ivory.

There's a more explicit list of colours available here, including things to consider when you attend religious ceremonies.

Sleeveless summer gowns and thigh-grazing dresses might not be appropriate for the autumn or you might find yourself feeling the chill.
