I thought summer was going to see the last of the weddings I’d be attending, but sure enough, the invitations kept rolling in, and before I knew it, my fall calendar was booked. Consider it wedding season in overdrive—and it’s only going to get busier for 2022. While opting for a pastel or floral dress is the easy option in the spring or summer, I tend to prefer the fall’s moody colors, soft velvets, and silks. It’s a palette I’m a big fan of. In fact, my wedding was in the summer, but the décor was filled with fall tones, and my bridesmaids wore black. If your schedule is packed or you’re simply on the hunt for formal dresses this season, I picked all my favorites for you.
