What to Wear to a Formal Daytime Fall Wedding
What to Wear to a Fall Wedding - Suggestions for the Wedding Guest
If you're going to a formal daytime wedding, you should wear a smart, short dress or a sharp suit. The dress should be formal, but not beaded or black. Stick to bright colors and lighter fabrics to look appropriate for daytime.

A woman wearing a stylish suit at a daytime wedding always looks pulled together. The trick is to find a suit that looks sophisticated rather than stuffy. Save the plain black for the office, and look for a suit with smart styling. Bright colors and rich fabrics will help make the suit appropriate for a fall wedding.

I like the lines and details of this Nanette Lepore suit - which makes sense as Ms. Lepore is the queen of the ladylike suit. The coordinating blouse it's pictured with adds a fun detail, and will still be pretty and interesting if she removes the jacket at the reception. Consider adding a brighter blouse for more color.

Men should wear a dark grey or navy suit. Black suits can look too heavy for a daytime wedding. Again, have fun with your accessories, choosing a mid-tone or bright tie that coordinates.
