Fall Wedding Gowns - Considering The Weather

The fabric that your fall wedding dresses are made of will depend a lot on which month you are marrying in and what the typical temperature throughout the day maybe. If you are marrying in the first few weeks of September the weather may still be rather warm, only cooling down at night (which is when you will probably be inside anyway), however, if you are marrying in late October or November it could be considerably colder. So it is important to consider your wedding date and possible weather conditions when you are choosing fall wedding gowns.

Of course, if you want to choose fall wedding dresses that are lighter in fabric, regardless of the month of your nuptials, you can always come prepared with a cardigan, fur coat, or cape that matches your dress or appears to go with it as part as your stunning outfit.

Fall Wedding Gowns - Choosing The Style

There are so many different styles of wedding gowns to choose from, but what is it that you are looking for in your autumn wedding dresses? If you are concerned about the weather you might want to look at long sleeve wedding dresses, or gowns made of heavier and warmer materials. Of course, if you are getting married in the early parts of the season you might opt for strapless dresses or shorter lengths.

Fall Wedding Gowns - Choosing Accents and Extras

A nice length for fall wedding dresses is the tea-length fall wedding gowns. They are not too short but they are not floor length either. They provide an elegant style that allows you to still feel the fall air at your feet.

Many wedding gowns have some kind of special accents to draw the eyes, and fall wedding dresses are certainly no exception. You can choose the typical crystal, pearl, or gem accents and beading that adorn more dresses today, or you can add some color. Color can be added in many ways, including sashes, and trim as well as adding colored patterns and designs to the dress itself.

Fall Wedding Gowns - Fabrics

When picking your wedding dress the first thing you need to make a decision on is the fabric it is made of. Wedding dresses can be made of a combination of more than one fabric. Common fabrics for wedding dresses include tulle, lace, organza, taffeta, satin, and chiffon.

The fabric you choose is up to you, but if you are getting married in the cooler autumn months you may want to avoid lace, organza, and chiffon as they are all lighter fabrics. They are great for spring, summer, and early fall dresses when it is warmer out, but you might need something heavier if your wedding is outdoors in the cooler months.

Fall Wedding Gowns - Dress Length

Many people do not think that the time of the year needs to dictate the length of the dress and I agree. If you see yourself in a shorter dress, the season should not deter you from what you want. However, most brides who get married in the fall so choose a floor-length wedding gown.

The change of the season makes it more sensible to choose a long wedding dress. It happens even outside of weddings. People cannot wait for the season to change to wear longer and more comfortable clothes again. A long wedding dress just feels so right in the Autumn.

Fall Wedding Gowns - Dress Style

There are many different wedding dress styles to choose from today. We are just going to focus on a few, the ones that are most popular during the fall season.

Wedding Dress Shopping:

TB Dress

The A-line wedding dress – this style is the most popular all year long. The A-line is a fabulous style because it is timeless and looks good on just about everyone. Whereas you can have an A-line style on just about any length, it looks the best on a floor-length gown.

Ball Gown – The ball gown dress is used all year as well, but it is not for everyone. Some people are not comfortable wearing a wedding dress that is so big and although many people compare it to looking like a princess, many women are not aspiring to that look.

If you feel comfortable in it and can pull it off I would recommend it. How many times in your life are you going to have an event to go to where a ball gown is this appropriate? A ball gown is beautiful and just like how the length of a fall dress feels right as floor-length, this is the style that feels most right for an Autumn Wedding.

Ball gowns are also on the more traditional side – so if your wedding is a traditional affair you might want to start looking for the perfect Fall Wedding Ballgown today!

The Mermaid Wedding Dress – This wedding gown is usually more appropriate for a modern wedding. The style has gotten increasingly popular over the last several years. This is a dress you should only wear if you are comfortable with your body because it is much more form-fitting and body-hugging than the others on the list.

However, this dress can be an absolute show stopper. Embellishments are even more noticeable on this dress as there is less fabric so if you are interested in using elements like sashes, lace, sequins, rhinestones, and beads they will look even more beautiful in this style. Also – just because the dress is more form-fitting that does not mean you cannot have a train – so if a train is a must, it is available on many different wedding dress styles.

Fall Wedding Gowns - Neckline

Finally, you are going to want to decide what type of neckline you want in your wedding dress.

Sweetheart Neckline – This neckline is probably the most popular neckline across all seasons, regardless of how modern or traditional the wedding is. If you do not know what the sweetheart neckline is – it is a low neckline where the top is shaped like the top of a heart. This can be accomplished as a strapless dress, as well as one with spaghetti straps or sleeves. 

Scoop Neckline – The scoop neckline is similar to the sweetheart as the neckline is lower than normal. In the scoop, it is even lower usually where a significant amount of cleavage is displayed above the neckline.

Off the Shoulder – The off the shoulder neckline is just how it sounds, the neckline drop below the shoulders. This is an extremely popular neckline choice these days. Some brides are not comfortable but strapless because of the lace of support it offers and would opt for this style instead.

There you have it - plenty of different ways to narrow down your fall wedding gown choices. I hope you found the one you love!
