Combining the festivities? Thanksgiving and your wedding are both times to gather with those you love, so we see the appeal! For your special day, stick with warm, earthy tones. Think burnt oranges, warm yellow, deep red, and maybe even some dark forest green for a pop. Stick with the holiday favorites, or Thanksgiving-inspired food for your main meal! As Thanksgiving is a time to be with family, consider serving your meal just like that -- family style at one big table where everyone can interact. For dessert, try something nontraditional and enjoy a delicious pie bar! You can have a variety of flavors for your guests to choose from, or even opt for a whole bunch on personal sized pies. Whatever you choose, we hope you have a wonderful, special day surrounded by those who mean most to you!
Finding the right outfit to wear as a guest to a wedding is no small feat! We all know the ageless rule of never wearing white to a wedding, but beyond that, there usually aren’t too many other guidelines to go off of. A change in season also means you most likely need to rotate into a new outfit from what you may have worn to any summer weddings. No fear, we’re here to help you pick the perfect fall wedding outfit to make you feel beautiful and confident!
We LOVE the colors of fall, and this is the perfect way to showcase them! We lean towards the deeper richer tones compared to the bright colors of summer. Think navy, burgundy, burnt orange, forest green, plum, and black. These colors are flexible for both day and evening weddings and are timeless, meaning you can re-wear them for years to come.
For fall, we like to stick with solid colors versus the bright, fun patterns of summer. This delivers a more crisp, warm feel and really allows the stunning colors to flourish!
Your outfit style depends on a number of factors: dress code, time of day, and what you’re comfortable with! That being said, there are many versatile styles that can transition between various scenarios. Some of our favorites are a little black dress, a classic cocktail dress, and a fresh new jumpsuit.
Little Black Dress
We never get sick of the little black dress! These beauties are the perfect staples that every woman should keep in her closet for times of need. It’s a low stress option that fits perfectly in almost any scenario.
A cocktail dress is our favorite way to let those fall colors shine! We know that so many styles fall under this category, and that’s part of what we love about it. Look for a nice simple cut that flatters the figure and pair it with a statement piece necklace and earrings.
Looking for something a little fresher and trendier? Grab a jumpsuit! This provides a chic, smooth look with an updated and trendy twist. We're loving how beautiful these look on and how much they lengthen those legs!
