Fall weddings feel especially romantic—the cool weather, toasty beverages, and autumnal palettes that make for a wedding aesthetic that’s cozy and romantic at once. If you’re finding yourself on the wedding guest circuit this season, you’re surely in need of a few new dresses that befit the season. And even better if you can score one for less than $100, right?
From longer sleeves to rich colors and sumptuous textures, there’s a lot to love about fall dresses. Seasonal hits like velvet, satin, and crepe are surefire hits, and this year, new-to-the-market versions feel fresher than ever in bright-as-can-be colors like yellow, magenta, and red to elegant floral prints and vintage-inspired jacquard. For the trend-forward wedding guest, big, puffy sleeves, ‘80s-style micro minis, mixed-print florals, and bold ruffles are trends worth digging into. Plus, they make for a killer photo opp, which is obviously a necessity for the ‘gram.
Affordable guest attire goes beyond the ceremony dress if you’re traveling for a wedding or are part of a bachelorette weekend ahead of the big day. In these cases, you’ll need a few frocks for the wedding from welcome cocktails to the rehearsal dinner and a post-wedding brunch. Add in the lineup of options you’ll need for various bachelorette festivities and affordability is a serious priority.
