It’s Fall! I think. My New England-self is still trying to figure out what to do with this year-round yellow foliage in California, but my Spidey sense is telling me that those of you in other parts of the country are beginning to pull on your boots and sweaters and bust out your slankets for the best season of them all. Having grown up with four seasons (well three and a half really. In Maine it goes wiiiinnnnter, spring-ish, summer, fall), there was no other time I could imagine getting married than fall. The weather is amazing, the leaves are set ablaze, and the seasonal food is to die for. It’s also the one time of year where it makes perfect sense to wear flip flops and a leather jacket at the same time (as I did at my own wedding.) For those of you who want the white dress experience, but still want a wedding outfit with a little bite to it, fall is also the perfect extra excuse to wear a killer cover-up at your wedding. So today we’ve rounded up some of our favorite images featuring wedding cover-ups and then shopped the heck out of the internet so that you can make them your own.
