It’s wedding season…. times 10.  RSVPing is easy, but trying to find a stunning fall wedding guest dresses before they’re all sold out? That’s almost impossible. If you’re panicking and realizing that you’re basically living the life of Jane Nichols from 27 Dresses—minus the bridesmaid status—I’ve got you covered.

Finding an *actually* stylish dress to wear to a wedding without looking like you’re in the wedding party is so difficult. You don’t want to end up with a closet full of dresses you kind of hate and won’t ever wear again! Luckily, I am going to a wedding in October, so I’ve selfishly decided to write this story to do research on the clock. It benefits us both!

Fall can be tricky because those cute pastels you’ve been seeing all over TikTok aren’t really going to fly in October. I know that a person can only wear rust or emerald so many times, which is why I tried to expand the fall color palette and find some more interesting options if you’re attending multiple weddings.

I found 10 picks for you in a variety of styles and colors from everywhere. But unlike poor Jane and her collection of hideous bridesmaids dresses, these frocks are full-on grid-worthy. There aren’t any scuba or cowgirl dresses in this round-up, I swear!

Scroll on to find some gowns you can actually wear to all your upcoming fall soirees. Talk about a win-win.

Pleated Chiffon Ruffle Maxi Dress

For a fun pop of color, a tangy orange hue is always a good move. This dress from Nasty Gal is only $60 but looks much more expensive because of the elevated pleating.
