Fall is a popular choice for weddings, likely due to the gorgeous backdrops and comfortably cool weather. However, we often come up short on what to wear to a fall wedding as a guest. Fall wedding guest dresses are characterized by rich jewel tones, long sleeves, heavy fabrics, and prints that echo the changing of seasons, but this doesn’t mean that you are restricted to a few cookie-cutter choices where you run the risk of sharing the same outfit with another guest.
Before we give you our favorite selections of fall wedding guest attire, we want to provide you with some general tips and etiquette on how to select your top choices. The most-asked question is usually what color dress to wear to a fall wedding. What’s the answer? Well, it depends on whether you would like to stick to the norm or to allow your creative flair to flourish. Look at the invitation you were given to get an idea of whether this will be an outdoor wedding in a barn or a ballroom extravaganza at a downtown hotel. Take note of the wedding dress code and plan your wedding outfit accordingly. For fall, think velvet, satin, silks, and shimmering materials in colorful tones of marigolds, maroons, deep purples, turquoise, and dark greens. Lace wedding guest dresses in bright colors with different colored shifts underneath are a growing trend, as well as dress styles with more fabric to keep you warm.
