What to Wear to an Early Fall Wedding - 4 Bloggers Collaboration.

I think the two easiest seasons to transition are from Summer to Fall. But when it comes to a Fall Wedding, what makes your Outfit or Dress doesn't look like it is still hot and sunny out? A heavier material on your dress, a layering piece like a kimono, jacket, shrug or shawl, full sleeves, elbow sleeves? Any of the above are great. Technically one can wear a sleeveless or strapless fancy dress to a wedding anytime (even in the Winter, if the wedding is indoors), but I still think one should dress according to the season. Today, myself along with CARRIE from Curly Crafty Mom, JENNIE from A Pocketful of Polka Dots and WHITNEY from Whitney ala Mode are showing you 4 ways to dress for an Early Fall Wedding. As you will see from the collage below, we each wore very different outfits and showed off our personal styles. I noticed some things in common though: rich colors, florals in reds and berries and toppers to keep warm for when a call breeze may pass us by.
Jennie chose the most gorgeous Fit+Flare Rose Print Dress which she paired with her stunning Mary Jane Pumps and accessorized with a Crystal Necklace and a Black Wrap around her shoulders (as you will see on the other collage, below). Whitney is wearing a Classic LBD accessorizing it with a very on-trend Tassel Necklace, a Floral Kimono and an Emerald Clutch; choosing Orange and Deep Green as two accent colors which are two perfect Fall colors. And Carrie wore a Rich Raspberry Dress with Sleeves. Between the Oxford Booties and that Awesome Fringe Necklace, her Outfit has an easy Bohemian feel going.
While I wore a Red Silk Ruched Dress with a Cropped Black Velvet Jacket over it. My Bandage Ruched Dress from Express is very flattering to the body and has a plunging neckline which sort of requires a fun necklace. So I wore a beaded, sort of antique-looking Statement Necklace in Deep Maroon and Gold Beads. Funny thing is that my Jacket was purchased from Wal Mart ages ago. It is a very pretty, well-made and dressy little jacket. The one button on it is a crystal flower that looks like a brooch. Choosing nice materials like Real Silk and Soft Velvet is a great way to dress up for a Wedding. I also wore Black+Blue Small Dangly, Beaded Earrings which go with the Necklace (without matching it perfectly), a Wide Gold Cuff with large rectangle crystals and a gold+zirconia stone Rose Cocktail Ring. My Pumps are very in this season since they have the chunky square heels and they are in a Charcoal Gray Python Skin. My Clutch is a Simple Black Satin Clutch with a Band of tiny beads on the front. So, Deep Red and Black for a Feminine and Sexy Early Fall Wedding, what do you think? Which of the 4 Wedding Outfits is your favorite?
