Fall Weddings: Find the Perfect Fall Gown

Autumn weddings mean vibrant colors, savory menus, and gowns with great seasonal style. From bold shapes to feminine flourishes, the options are practically endless for fashionable fall brides.

Fall Bridal Style

Ethereal elegance

Find Your Gown
Get inspired by Greek goddess looks and try a billowy, featherweight gown that will make walking down the aisle a breeze. Focus on light, airy fabrics (think sheer chiffon and Chantilly lace, not heavy silk satins) and loose flowing shapes. Even ball gowns with full skirts will seem to float when made of breathable fabrics like taffeta and tulle.

Try These Designers
Vera Wang, Nicole Miller, and Claire Pettibone

Fall Bridal Style

Natural beauty

Find Your Gown
If a bright white dress decorated with pearls and Swarovski crystals would be a bit too much glitz for you, choose a polished style in a muted fall hue like creamy white, light gray, or soft mushroom. These understated looks have an earthy, but very romantic, grace. Look for details like fabric flowers and colored gems to keep subdued tones from looking drab.

Try These Designers
Monique Lhuillier, Lela Rose, and Adele Wechsler



Fall Bridal Style

Unabashed whimsy

Find Your Gown
Reminiscent of a more romantic era, bustled trains and corset-style bodices are back in a big (and voluminous) way. To keep this slightly old-fashioned look of-the-moment, consider a gown with interesting design elements like hand-painted or patterned fabric.

Try These Designers
Ines Di Santo, Elizabeth Fillmore, and Carolina Herrera



Fall Bridal Style

Sexy siren
