Shopping for Mother of the Groom dresses for fall is an exciting time. If you live in a climate that enjoys visible seasons, what a pleasure. You can co-ordinate your colors with the colors of fall if you wish. You will want to choose warmer, deeper, darker colors for this season usually and in richer textured fabrics that keep you warmer allowing for the drop in temperature.

Shawls and Jackets

Shawls and jackets are a must, to compliment your look. Either in the same fabric, or in a different fabric, but complimentary color. These can turn an outfit into something all the more elegant.

Sleeves

Suddenly, long sleeves, short sleeves, sleeveless and even three quarter sleeves are all an option to you, because whereas longer sleeves are just too hot for summer wear, they are perfect for fall and winter weddings.

Gloves

Something else wonderful about Mother of the Groom dresses for fall are gloves. You can get away with gloves at any time of year it is true, but when the weather begins to cool down, that is really the best suited time to wear a pair of gloves with your outfit and they do turn any outfit into something very glamorous, not to mention keeping you warm.

Colors

Whereas in summer, one might turn more towards lighter and natural fabrics, in the fall heavier and darker will suit better. Navy blue, plum, maroon, chocolate, burnt orange, mulberry, evergreen, are just a few ideas for the sorts of colors you might go for. Just the sound of many of these colors brings a warm feeling to your soul and conjures up images of being curled up by a warm fire. Ice blue? Definitely not, but Royal blue, now we’re talking and I think you get the picture of the sort of colors to go for when looking for Mother of the Groom dresses for fall

Fabric

Your choice of fabric will play a part in shopping for cooler climates naturally. Cotton and viscose or any other thin and flimsy fabric are best left for the warmer months of the year. Silk looks gorgeous and is warm, which makes is a good choice. Good quality taffeta or brocades. Chiffon is a good choice as it usually comes with a lining giving it more warmth. Taffeta, chiffon and satin are some of the most commonly used fabrics for wedding attire, and understandably so, as they do look and feel great. Jersey is another option you might like to consider, because it is soft to the touch, comfortable and warm at the same time.

Because most venues will have climate control these days and you are unlikely to have an outdoor wedding in the freezing cold (although if you do, be sure to be prepared for it!) most fabrics you choose will be suitable for the occasion. Often the heating in a venue can get too hot and stuffy with all the people crammed into one place. For this reason it is always better to have a jacket or shawl rather than your actual dress being too warm.

Enjoy your shopping and congratulations on the upcoming wedding. Take a look around the site for more inspiration and ideas.
