Autumn Wedding Style

There are so many reasons to love fall—cool weather, falling leaves, cider and pumpkin everything, but above all: fashion. From knits and tights, to boots and scarves, this season is full of fun accessories for everyday and your BIG day. Incorporate some autumn attire into your wedding ensemble for seasonal, chic style.

Chase away the chill by giving the bridesmaids beautiful shawls that complement their dress colors. There’s elegance in a silk or satin, magnificence in fur or casual, and coziness in a pashmina that can later be used as a scarf. If their dresses cut above the knee, keep them warm in tights. Finish off their fall fashion with booties. Your girls will love you for choosing this ankle-high, on-trend boot. Available in an array of colorful suedes and leathers, there is sure to be a match for your color scheme.

Suit up the boys in a heavier fabric like tweed or wool.  If it’s a bit too warm for a heavy suit, consider a vest.  Dapper and comfortable, vests will offer a stylish detail to your guys’ getups while keeping their cores warm and cozy. Dress boots are a unique take on the groomsmen’s footwear. Fashionable boots like these Allen Edmond Dalton Wing Tip Dress Boots will have the boys excited to get dressed up.

Brides, complete your big-day style with a coat. Fitted blazers are a popular trend and can add a splash of personality to your attire. Sleek velvet in dark blue or mustard yellow will be a chic accent as the night falls. Traditional, but often overlooked accessories are gloves.  Choose from a variety of styles, materials, lengths, and details. Channel your inner Audrey Hepburn in elbow-length satin beauties, or be cute and casual in short cotton gloves with a bow accent.

Dressing: Mother of the Bride

Now that your daughter (or soon-to-be daugher-in-law) has her dress and alterations well in hand, you can get down to the business of what you’re wearing on wedding day. Our mother of the bride wedding dressescollection of elegant sophisticated evening dresses and gowns are tailor-made for this occasion. While we have everything you need at Nitsa’s to dress the perfect part, there are a few things that will help you best match your dress to the day.

  • Talk to your daughter to get a sense of the event and the type of attire you’ll need as the M.O.B. You want her to be comfortable with what you’re wearing, but you also need to be at ease. It’s a big day for you, too.
  • Talk to the Mother of the Groom to inform her of your ensemble’s color and formality. While it’s not necessary you dress the same—and probably best that you don’t— keeping length or sleeve style consistent is a good rule of thumb.
  • Find your shade. The best dresses for mothers and mothers-in-law complement their coloring, but don’t clash with the chosen wedding colors. Obviously creams and ivories are off-limits (you don’t want to compete with the bride), but don’t feel as if you need to choose the same hue as the bridesmaids, either.
  •  Ask us. We have a wealth of knowledge when it comes to dressing clients for special events—after all, we’ve been doing it for 40 years. Tell us all you know, and we’ll happily help you select the perfect dress, one that complements you and the wedding, too, whether that’s short to floor length, cap sleeve to strapless.
