37 Perfect Autumn Wedding Guest Dresses That I've Bookmarked

Everything this year has been disrupted, and weddings planned over spring and summer have all had to be rescheduled and moved. Weddings are allowed to now take place (with limitations on guest lists), meaning they are starting to resume, and invitations are stacking up for next year. If you're starting to plan and hunt for wedding guest looks this is where we step in, as we've looked through the thousands of dresses available on the high street and from designers.

I've genuinely spent hours hunting down the coolest, most appropriate autumn-ready wedding guest dresses around. Longer sleeves feature on most of these frocks, of course, as well as hemlines staying in the midi-length area. That said, these dresses are meant to last, so expect to keep wearing them over the festive period and next year's wedding season and for years to come after. Also, bonus tip for 2021's nuptials: If you buy your outfit now, chances are by the time the wedding comes around, no one else will be wearing the same thing as you.
