Fall is honestly my favorite season for weddings. The weather is cool, there are beautiful colors in nature, and maybe I’m a little bias because of my own November wedding.
We particularly chose a Fall wedding because we didn’t want to be hot in the sun for our outdoor ceremony, or overheating on the dance floor with our guests. We still got plenty of sunshine, but a brisk chill to the air that helped us keep our cool. Pun intended!
Earlier this year, I shared some affordable wedding guest dresses for spring time, and I’m back at it for fall and winter! I scoured Amazon to find the best wedding guest dresses under $40 on Prime, and these are what I found! There’s an option for every climate and dress code, with a ton of fall-friendly color options.

1. Multi-Way Strap Wrap Maxi Dress ($24.99)
If you’ve got multiple weddings to go to this season, this is the dress for you! Not only is it incredibly affordable, but there are 24— TWENTY FOUR— ways you can wear it! The straps are convertible, so you can wear it as a traditional halter, as an asymmetrical top, you can create cap sleeves with the straps… the possibilities go on and on to transform this dress into something new every time you wear it. Reviews say that it runs long, so tailoring may be needed.
2. Vintage Floral Lace Boat Neck Dress ($39.99)
If you want a cocktail length dress, this one is a great choice for semi-formal weddings. The lace gives it an elegant appearance and it’s available in both short sleeves and long sleeves depending on the climate!
3. Floral Lace Ruched Neck Dress ($31.99)
This formal dress has a high, ruched neck and long sleeves for chilly weather, but stays flown throughout the skirt for movement! The top is embroidered in a floral lace pattern for an extra feminine touch.
4. Patterned Skirt Swing Dress ($29.96)
For more casual weddings, this dress will still say you’re ready for a special occasion! The full skirt is perfect for dancing and makes a statement with a bold pattern. It’s knee length and with half sleeves, perfect for fall weather while keeping it breezy with the swing skirt.
5. Long Sleeve Off Shoulder Dress ($23.98)
A classic style that you can dress up with accessories, this floor length and long sleeve dress comes in several different colors. But this wine shade is perfect for fall and winter, don’t you think? It’s made of cotton and spandex so while it’s long, it’s still going to be breathable. There are also pockets on each side of the dress to stash your evening must-haves!
6. Ruffle Bell Sleeves Dress ($39.99)
Another cocktail option with long sleeves, this dress features flared bell sleeves and a body-con style. It won’t fit too tightly though, as there is a back slit for easy walking.
