Outfits For an Autumn Wedding

In September, October and November as Mother Nature paints our landscape in rustic hues of the season, fashion designers are doing exactly the same. Warmer fabrics and colours replace the dreamy creations of summer instead autumnal outfits are beautifully finished in much richer tones.

Matching Occasion Dress Suits

The changing season brings a myriad of inspirations in warming tones and fabrics for autumn wedding outfits or special occasions. For the Mother of the Bride and Groom colours can be subtle with a hint of shimmer. Alternatively, those not afraid of a little drama can go with punchy prints or a monochrome combination. Traditional autumn wedding outfits such as dress and matching jackets in navy and ivory or black and white offer effortless elegance. While darker hues and longer length midi dresses will see you through the evening reception in style.

Frock Coats and Longline Occasion Jackets

The nights may be turning cooler and the days drawing in but one thing is for sure the colour palette for autumn is definitely warm. So what better way to cover up than with an elegant frockcoat in the season’s best colours.


Mother of the Bride Wedding and Occasion Coats

Occasion Dresses with Matching Jackets

The latest collections from Gina Bacconi feature plenty of shimmer, lace and luxuriously finished pieces making up for any lack of colour. The new season brings dresses with matching jackets, skirt suits and corsage occasion coats giving that extra layer to take the chill off. Elegant plus size outfits for a wedding can be found at Navabi and Chesca. On-trend styles at Phase Eight, Coast, L.K.Bennett and Hobbs will keep your look current. While classic designs are never far away with skirt suits and dress suits from Jacques Vert, Eastex and Precis Petite.

Best Colours for UK Autumn Wedding

Mocha, camel beige, deep blue, purple, deep red, orange, dark olive, golden yellow, rust, navy, gold and silver are rich and stunning for an autumn wedding. It’s best to choose classic fabrics to wear such as silk or lightweight wool. Three-piece suits, shift dresses, skirt suits & beautifully cut dresses come the natural colours of the season. Additionally layering with a cashmere shawl, cape or jacket are perfect for all seasons, especially on cooler days.

Autumn Wedding Outfits

Colours you may have worn in the summer can look different in the cooler months. Our skin tone changes with the seasons so the pastels that once looked good can make us look pale and washed out in the autumn.
Most importantly is getting the look right for the occasion by choosing a subtle pattern in a medium shade that suits your hair colouring and skin tone.

A Mother of the Bride gown can look stunning in a complementary shade to the colour theme of the wedding or bridesmaids outfits. Taking both this and the season of the wedding into account should help in finding the appropriate gown.
