It's the end of September and half the office is in sundresses and sandals, while the other half is wearing jeans and boots. If we're having a hard time dressing ourselves for this tricky time of year, then fall brides must have it a lot worse. Chantilly lace and floral embellishments? Much better for spring or summer. And those rich, heavily embroidered satin gowns, so ideal for winter, are bound to feel...well...too formal (and frankly, too hot). So we'll try to make it a little easier for you. For an autumn wedding, we're thinking gowns in buttery ivories and champagnes (instead of stark white) with embellishments, overlays, and lace patterns that evoke scattered leaves and graceful branches. And, since fall weather can be so unpredictable (warm during the day, nippy at night), we made sure to include a few styles with sleeves and removable coverage options.
