What to wear to an autumn wedding

20 dresses, suits and jumpsuits for a stylish September nuptials

Karen Birney,

While the summer may be coming to a close, there's no sign of wedding season letting up just yet.

And as everyone who's ever attended a formal occasion in the Irish autumn is already more than aware of, dressing for those transition months is a little trickier than in high summer or deep winter.

So what is one to wear to a September/October occasion that hits the right style notes and also offers a light, airy feel in the event of some sun shine, and a comfortable amount of coverage for a more murky day?

Pretty print dresses are one of the best options for autumn guests - and a midi length will ensure you're free to frolick about holding a drink in one hand and clutch purse in the other in the case of heavy rain.

Jumpsuits are having a moment too, and together with printed pantsuits can offer a chic alternative to the high street dresses favoured by the majority.

Sister Jane shirt dress,€90.00,

If yours isn't the most formal of nuptials, a cute mini shirt dress could do the trick - dress it up with a pretty pillbox hat and structured back and heels and you're sure to stand out from the stylish crowd in the best way possible.
