It's no secret that fall is a beloved season for weddings. And since 2022 marks the return of a full season of wedding events resembling pre-pandemic times, there's a good chance your weekends will be filled with nuptials for your friends and family. With cooler temperatures and picturesque views, fall is a great season for couples to say "I do." So if you'll be attending autumn nuptials, you'll want to start shopping for fall wedding guest dresses as soon as possible. Since the weather can be unpredictable, determining what to wear as a guest to a fall wedding isn't always easy.

Fall wedding guest dresses are typically characterized by rich jewel tones, long sleeves, heavier fabrics and prints that echo the changing of seasons. However, this doesn't mean you're restricted to predictable choices that make you run the risk of sharing the same outfit with another guest or being uncomfortable (think: overheating in a long-sleeve velvet gown at an outdoor wedding). To help make picking your dream outfit easier, we've rounded up the very best fall dresses for wedding guests on the market. But first, we've tapped experts to tell you exactly what to wear to a wedding in the fall, including suggestions for fall colors, prints and styles. Read on for our helpful advice and cute fall outfit ideas.

In this article:

What to Wear to a Fall Wedding

If you're wondering exactly what to wear to a fall wedding, let the experts help you decide. "Once the fall season hits, we say goodbye to summer brights and start the transition into warm but cheerful color tones," says Blaire Walsh, Style Director of Rent the Runway. "This season gives guests the chance to play with assorted necklines, unique sleeve cuts and heavier fabrics."

Before you choose your autumn wedding attire, look at the invitation to get an idea of the wedding dress code. This is one of the most important factors to take into consideration when choosing your look. You'll dress differently for an outdoor wedding in a barn than you would at a hotel rooftop, so read up on the couple's requested attire to plan your wedding outfit accordingly. In addition to the requested wedding dress code listed on the couple's invitation, clues like the venue and the time of the event can offer additional fashion insight.

"Location is a huge factor in deciding what to wear," explains SuitShop co-founder Jeanne Foley. "Look into where the ceremony and reception will be taking place because that's the best indicator of determining the level of formality you can plan for." While you might opt for a casual sundress with a denim jacket for an afternoon barn wedding, for example, an evening soirée at an upscale restaurant would require a more formal look, like a sleek jumpsuit or an embellished midi dress.

Fall wedding guest attire is most notably associated with jewel tones and rich fabrics like silk and textured floral print, and this won't change any time soon. "This season, expect to see plenty of moody floral prints and deep jewel tones like fuchsia, emerald, mustard, burgundy and plum," says Kristen Schnars, Director of Merchandising for Lulus. "Saturated pop colors like magenta, hot pink and shades of red are trending this year too."

When shopping for trendy fall wedding guest dresses, Schnars recommends looking for designs that feature satin silk fabric, floral burnouts and jacquard textures. Puff sleeves, one-shoulder necklines, asymmetrical ruffled hems and tiered skirts will dominate this year, as well as trending internet aesthetics, like cottagecore, regencycore and barbiecore. But if you're looking for a reliable silhouette you can rewear for multiple events, Schnars urges that you can never go wrong with a classic wrap dress.

It's also a good idea to be mindful of your budget early on. Whether you're looking to save some cash or want to splurge instead on statement accessories, there are plenty of places to get affordable wedding guest outfits for the season. Shop at budget-friendly and size-inclusive retailers like Anthropologie, ASOS, Nordstrom and ELOQUII, or rent your outfit from a service like Rent the Runway if you have a particularly busy wedding season. "For anyone looking to bring their fashion A-game without breaking the bank, renting is the perfect solution," Walsh says. "You get to wear something new to every event without feeling guilty for one-time wears."

Now it's time to start shopping for dresses to wear to a fall wedding. To help you narrow down your search, we've handpicked the best options for every formality—including formal, cocktail and casual—as well as outdoor and long-sleeved dresses that are appropriate for any fall event.
