With endless combinations, your wedding day look can be perfectly tailored to the climate of your destination. Plus, choosing a gown made of two pieces is quite possibly the best way to wear your bridal look again and again.

Wedding day outfits could be weather-proofed by adding detachable sleeves, tops, or overskirts, which can be easily removed or swapped out — ready for an evening of dancing.

Statement Sleeves

Wedding dresses with sleeves during this time of the year are a great idea for the brides-to-be who want to express their style and feel comfortable during the event.

There’s no doubt that colorful wedding dresses are commonplace on the runway during Bridal Fashion Week, but it’s good to note that the concept is yet to catch on in the mainstream. Designers are doing their best to change that. While Brear suggests going for opulent golds, Temperley recommends embracing the beautiful autumnal color palette that comes with the new season through intricate details in the wedding dresses.

If you want to add a finishing touch to your bridal look, then you should think about the accessories. You can go for a traditional veil, which will add a touch of old-world drama to your ensemble, but you can skip the veil in favor of more modern alternatives like headbands.
