Although “wedding season” is generally thought of as the summer (who hasn’t dreamt of a June wedding?), the most popular months to say “I do” are actually in the fall.

Although the type of wedding and the season the wedding is occurring in will be important factors in choosing your dress (and shoes!), there are some general rules that apply across all weddings. For example, when in doubt it’s important to stray toward the conservative side. Pick a feature to show off but don’t reveal too much. You don’t want to attract attention when it should all be on the bride and groom! A simple, knee-length V-neck like this one is a perfect example of how to balance flattering features and minimize attention.
If it’s a ceremony during the colder month, consider an option that comes with a matching sweater, like this!
Another rule to always follow is to avoid white. White is reserved for the bride. Unless the invitation explicitly invites you to wear white, do not do so.
Finally, pay attention to the details of the wedding and the invitation. Most weddings include clues or recommendations for dress codes. For example, the wedding may be black-tie or on a beach. If it’s one or the other, your choice of attire will greatly differ.
