We know it’s still summer and you’re soaking up all the sun and warm weather the season has to offer, but believe it or not, now’s actually the perfect time to get all your fall wedding outfits in order. By reserving your look(s) ahead of time, you avoid the last minute “oh wait I have nothing to wear!” woes later – and who doesn’t want that?

When it comes to dressing for fall nuptials, certain silhouettes, like floor-length gowns with long sleeves and high necklines, are great options because they fend off chilly temperatures without any added bulk. When it comes to popular colors and patterns, moody florals, dramatic metallics and inky jewel tones are great options for looking both stylish and season-appropriate. As for the best fabrics for a fall wedding? Opt for plush velvet, satin, silk and crepe.

To help you pick an outfit for every wedding on your radar, we’ve rounded up the very best fall wedding guest dresses to wear in 2022.

Wear Your Jewels

Nothing radiates elegance like a rich jewel tone. From emerald greens and ruby reds, to vibrant sapphires and dazzling ambers, these colors are bound to turn heads.

Match the Foliage

As ditsy florals and sweet pastels get ready to hibernate, moody bouquets of deep reds, burnt oranges and dramatic browns make their debut just in time to complement the season’s changing leaves.

Make it a Mini

Don’t worry about the chillier temps — that’s what the layers are for! A micro mini and thigh-grazing blazer is the ultimate sexy-meets-chic combo.

Drape Yourself in Metallics

Equal parts formal, celebratory and fun — the power of a shimmery dress is that it ticks all the boxes.

Go Ham with Prints

When it comes to fall wedding-appropriate prints, anything goes. Geometric, animal, stripes, florals — you can really do no wrong.
