If it seems like everyone is getting married this year, you’re not wrong. Due to the pandemic, a lot of couples were forced to push their nuptials from 2020 to 2021. Hence, every weekend, there’s a wedding.

Of course, that means that you’ll need something (or a lot of things) to wear. Don’t worry, though! These fall wedding guest dresses are all under $300 and look absolutely gorgeous.

For a fall wedding, consider wearing darker colors and metallic accents. A black dress may be an obvious choice — and a versatile one — but look for designs in unique fabrics or with stylish accents to stand out. Jewel tones and dark florals are also popular choices, for good reason.

Take a look at these fall wedding guest dresses ranging in price (they’re listed from least expensive to most expensive). They’re all bound to look fabulous in the photos, and that’s what counts, right?
