27 Fall Wedding Guest Dresses That'll Make Everyone Ask, "Where'd You Get That?"

I thought summer was going to see the last of the weddings I'd be attending, but sure enough, the invitations kept rolling in, and before I knew it, my fall calendar was booked. Consider it wedding season in overdrive—and it's only going to get busier for 2022. While opting for a pastel or floral dress is the easy option in the spring or summer, I tend to prefer the fall's moody colors, soft velvets, and silks. It's a palette I'm a big fan of. In fact, my wedding was in the summer, but the décor was filled with fall tones, and my bridesmaids wore black. If your schedule is packed or you're simply on the hunt for formal dresses this season, I picked all my favorites for you.

Below, you'll find 27 dresses that will no doubt give you the Best Dressed Guest title at any wedding you attend. You won't out-stage the couple, but you'll be the second best dressed for sure. From midis to maxis, velvets to silks, keep scrolling to find your favorite.

After interning at Who What Wear in 2019, she found her way to the team after graduating from LIM College in 2022 with a fashion media degree. She's also spent time writing and working for publications such as Fashionista, Coveteur, and Nylon, but she always knew that Who What Wear was where she was meant to be. When she's on the job, she's perusing runway shows, analyzing the latest thing fellow Gen Zers are up to on the internet, and sharing what she can about the modest-fashion market. You can also catch her dabbling in entertainment, talking about the costume choices of the latest Netflix series or diving deeper into how the plotline affects the viewers in a myriad of ways. Lastly, she likes to create content for Who What Wear's TikTok. Her personal time is spent doing similar but also different things—deep diving into almost every new TV show (Bridgerton, Gilmore Girls, and Stranger Things are favorites), planning her next local getaway (whenever that may be), and reading the latest Emily Henry or Sally Rooney novel in one sitting.
