The Prettiest Fall Wedding Guest Dresses
Fall weddings are a breath of fresh air. The leaves are changing, the weather is cooler, and wedding season is winding down, so you’re likely soaking up the last nuptials on your calendar for the next few months. Another perk of fall weddings? You can wear whatever you choose. The temperature will (hopefully) not be sweltering, so bring on the balloon sleeves, satin you won’t sweat through, and maybe even velvet. Yes, the options for fall wedding guest dresses are endless.
An overarching rule when choosing your fall wedding guest dresses: Think jewel tones. Fall is all about embracing the rich shades that reflect the coziness of the season, so go for garnet, deep purples, emerald green, and rusty shades of marigold. Opt for heavier fabrics than you wore to summer weddings; swap linen for lace and silk for suede. There’s something romantic about fall, and you can channel this energy by dressing for the season.
Where should you shop for fall wedding guest dresses? For evening weddings where the attire is more formal, Rent the Runway is a great option because you can choose from designer dresses that you might not typically be able to afford. With a plethora of patterns, fabrics, and styles, Anthropologie is where you can find a casual fall wedding guest dress that you’ll wear even after the big day. For a mix of fancy and casual wedding guest dresses, Nordstrom has got you covered. And if you’re looking for stunning plus size wedding guest dresses for fall, Modcloth has a huge selection to choose from. Here are some of our favorites.
Long fall wedding guest dresses
With the cooler weather, you’re freer to play around with dress lengths. Maxi dresses are romantic and whimsical, making them the perfect choice for your fall wedding guest dresses. It’s unfortunate when you buy a dress for a special occasion and it ends up hanging in your closet collecting dust after one wear. To avoid this, we rounded up some beautiful maxi dresses that are fancy enough for weddings but casual enough for relaxed date nights.
Fall wedding guest dresses with sleeves
Sleeved dresses will keep you warm after the sun goes down and you’re dancing the night away at the moonlit reception. We love fun balloon, bell, peasant, and sheer sleeves. (We admit that the sheer sleeves might not help with warmth, but they’re so pretty.)
