Wedding Guest dresses for fall and winter weddings are different than what you are looking for in spring and summer. Equally fun and romantic, they require more thought in the silhouette and fabric department. Consider long sleeves and hemlines (hello, maxis!) to stay warm, especially if the “I do’s” involve an outdoor element. And heavier fabrics, like velvet, knit and beautifully detailed brocade. But do not despair, not everything is monotonous. It’s event attire, after all.

The party is the mainstay of a number of the best fall and winter wedding guest dresses. We’re talking sparkle through sequins, Lurex fabrics and embellishments – plus elegant shine in the form of taffeta and satin. Of course, you should feel as trendy as you want, like with a romantic puff sleeve, a sexy cutout at the waist, or a draped cowl neck lined in an Aughts-inspired jumpsuit or dress.

Color is another way to make your decision, whether it’s an autumnal hue like spicy ginger, golden yellow and juniper, or a shimmering jewel tone, like garnet or sapphire – both a brilliant choice for a holiday wedding. And if you’re a girl with floral prints to your fingertips, we can smell you. Darker florals in deeper tones are more romantic than ever with a cool weather feel.
