What To Wear To An Outdoor Wedding In The Fall

As wedding season approaches, clothing stores become full to the brim of stunning outfits that are perfect for weddings. However, if you're attending a wedding later in the year, you might be wondering what to wear to an outdoor wedding in the fall.

If you ask me, weddings at any time of year are amazing. Being invited to celebrate the love between two people is so special and weddings always leave me feeling optimistic about the human race. Plus, they're a great occasion to dress up fancy, eat some awesome food, and dance the night away; usually in gorgeous settings. Folks who've been asked to attend an outdoor wedding are in for a treat — there's something super romantic about being in a marquee underneath a twinkly night sky. Outdoor weddings in the daytime are equally as unique, because there's nothing like dining alfresco in the balmy air.

Guests invited to outdoor weddings in the summer are spoiled for choice when it comes to seasonally appropriate wedding attire, but those attending weddings in the autumn might have hit a sartorial stumbling block. Fall brings with it cooler temperatures and possibly rain, so if you're invited to an outdoor wedding in autumn you've got to be ready for every eventuality.

With this in mind, here are some awesome options of what to wear to an outdoor wedding in the fall.

1. A Long Sleeved Midi Dress
