When to Have Your Fall Wedding 

Autumn is a popular time to get married, and it is easy to see why! Of course, the further into fall your wedding is, the cooler the weather. Early fall weddings are an excellent choice for couples who want an outdoor wedding without scorching heat! As for those chillier months, an indoor venue like a ballroom or rustic barn is also a fantastic choice. 

What Plus Size Wedding Dress Styles Are Typical For a Fall Wedding? 

While we think brides should wear whatever makes them feel their most beautiful no matter what season they have their wedding, there are a few styles of wedding dresses that work especially well for the fall season! Key silhouettes and details for plus size fall wedding dresses include A-lines, ballgowns, leaf-inspired laces and long sleeve styles. Heavier fabrics like satin are common in the fall season as well. 

Choosing a Plus Size Dress for Your Fall Wedding  

Below are a few factors to consider when wedding dress shopping! When choosing a plus size fall wedding dress, keep these tips in mind: 

  • While A-line gowns are universally flattering, feel free to experiment during your appointment and try on different silhouettes. Something unexpected may just become the one! 
  • Want to stay warm for outdoor photos or an outdoor ceremony but afraid of getting too hot as you dance the night away? Jackets, capes and detachable sleeves are all wonderful ways to achieve two looks in one while also keeping warm. 
  • For the ultimate fall-themed wedding dress, search for bridal gowns that feature lace with vine and leaf motifs for a fitting autumnal touch. Additional details like gold threading or beading add just the right amount of shimmer and look stunning during the fall sunset.
