Going to an October Wedding? Here's Exactly What to Wear

While technically wedding season might take place smack-dab in the middle of summer (June being the most popular month), we find that another popular time for couples to say "I do" is in October. The weather is just getting nice and crisp, the leaves are turning and romance is definitely in the air.

While all that makes for a perfectly Instagrammable backdrop, dressing for such an affair can be quite the challenge. Will the church be freezing? Should you wear tights? And what about a coat? One thing’s for certain: nothing kills a wedding guest outfit like a last-minute cover-up that swamps or completely clashes with your look. Our money is the magical power of sleeves and if you don’t want to bare your ankles: wide-leg trousers. Pretty printed dresses with full sleeves can be recycled into winter with knee-high boots and slouchy jumpers thrown over.

Don’t panic. If you’re off to an October wedding, be inspired by the outfits below.
