The first reaction to getting a wedding invitation in the mail is usually excitement. Weddings are basically a designated time to party, eat, drink, and celebrate love with friends and/or family. But, once that initial flutter of euphoria and excitement fades, the next thought is likely, "Do I have anything to wear?"

Choosing an outfit and shoes to wear to a fall wedding can be a bit tricky, and even get a bit expensive. The good news is that there are a ton of affordable and even comfortable dress options for you to say yes to the (guest) dress—no matter the weather forecast or venue, from boho beach weddings to elegant black tie ones. And, don't worry—there are options for those times the couple hasn't designated a dress code, too.

Here's a sneak peek of the best fall wedding guest dresses:

So, what colors do you wear to a fall wedding? Autumnal colors like marigold, maroon, or jewel tones are always a safe bet. Just be sure to steer clear of white (or red for an Indian wedding, as that is the color brides traditionally wear). Then, consider what design you'll feel best in. Are you comfortable in a sleeveless maxi dress, or do you prefer a shorter hemline offset by romantic, billowy sleeves?

Comfort is key (especially when it comes to those all-day celebrations), but so is style. Whether you have your eye on someone from the bridal party or are looking for some cute outfits for your Insta grid, these 71 fall wedding guest dresses work for any wedding vibe and budget.
