Tips for Styling a Fall Wedding Dress
Even if your wedding dress doesn't particularly scream 'fall', there are plenty of ways to add a seasonal touch to your look. Here are a few of our favorites:
Accessorize with Jewel Tones
Jewel tones were practically made for fall, so incorporating them into your wedding day look is a no-brainer. You can pull a Carrie Bradshaw and rock sapphire pumps under your dress (Bonus: They can double as your 'something blue'). Of course, you could always go the jewelry route as well. In our books, a dainty emerald necklace or pair of earrings can add the perfect fall touch to any look.
Opt for a Bold Lip
If you're not keen on the idea of adding color to your wedding wardrobe, you can always incorporate a subtle fall touch into your makeup look instead. A bold lip is always a good idea, especially heading into the holiday season. Just like with accessories, you can't go wrong with rich jewel tones like ruby red or violet when it comes to your lip color.
If you're really hoping to capture a cozy fall vibe with your wedding day ensemble, you can always throw on a cape, pashmina or faux fur shawl. Not only will it add a unique touch to your look, but it will also come in handy if you're planning an outdoor wedding during one of the chillier months. The best part? You can remove it as you please to seamlessly switch up your look throughout the night.
