If you have a fall or winter wedding coming up, you might be looking at your typical wedding attire — the slinky, flowery, breezy dresses — and have no clue what to wear.
What do you wear to a fall wedding?
There are plenty of seasonally appropriate options for a cold-weather special occasion, and most fall under these three categories:
