The temperatures may be dropping, but bridesmaid style is just beginning to heat up! While summer is a time for light, airy dresses and bouquets of fluffy blooms, fall begs for vibrant gowns, longer hems, and an emphasis on greenery and foliage. Say goodbye to little white dresses, and say hello to little black dresses. Get inspired by the changing leaves and crisp air, and choose gowns that project warmth and sophistication.
When choosing bridesmaid dresses, you'll want to think about the temperature – your girls will thank you for not asking them to wear short, strapless dresses in November! Gowns in shades of grey, blue, purple, and green celebrate the season. Consider, too, the flowers you choose for the bouquet. Autumn is a wonderful time to incorporate herbs, grasses, branches, and even seasonal produce into floral arrangements. Check out real bridesmaid looks from fall weddings below, and get excited about this gorgeous season!
Fall is the perfect season for deep, jewel-toned gowns, like these rich purple dresses. Pair gowns with single-variety bouquets of calla lilies, or another refined, elegant flower. Photo by Ira Lippke Studios
Allowing your girls to choose their own gowns can be nerve-racking, but they'll appreciate the chance to show off their own style! Ask them to choose dresses in an autumn color palette, like burgundy, silver, and brown. Photo by Paul Barnett Photographer
