AUTHOR: BIRDY GREY | DATE: 07/20/2023

Spring and summer might be peak season for sunny weddings with loads of dusty hues and sweet wildflower bouquets, but fall is the perfect time for weddings that are cozy, rustic, and intimate. We see all you chic pumpkin-spice brides with your romantic fall foliage-accented bouquets, and we have loads of bridesmaid dresses that are perfect for your fall wedding.

So, if you're planning on getting hitched from September to November, here are the dresses and colors that will complement your autumnal magic palette.

emerald

Rich and radiant, emerald green bridesmaids dresses are just about as elegant as they come. This deep jewel tone looks incredible on all skin tones, so your bridesmaids are sure to love your choice. Best of all the dark green will pop against bright fall colors in your outdoor photos. We're obsessed with our Alex convertible dress in velvet or the ethereal Devin, with her (removable) sleeves worn draped over the arms — each a silhouette fit for a queen. Pair your emerald bridesmaid dresses with pearl jewelry for a look that is both timeless and trendy.

cabernet

With our bold and sophisticated cabernet dresses, you won't have to travel to Vermont for fall colors. Pair these burgundy gowns with an autumnal bouquet to maximize the seasonal vibes — think rusty orange dahlias, evergreen springs, and creamy roses. Mia in shimmering cabernet satin became an instant hit when we launched her earlier this year. Or, the Kiko dress is a beautiful halter option, with a Greek-goddess neckline and soft ruching. Minimal bridesmaids will love our Ash dress in cabernet velvet, with her simple silhouette that leaves room for statement accessories.

terracotta

Terracotta bridesmaids dresses were practically made for fall, and this earthy neutral shade — mixed and matched with neutral champagne — has only increased in popularity in 2023. For our boho brides, we can already picture this ruddy shade next to your pampas grass altar decor. And, while we're on the subject of boho weddings, our August convertible dress is the perfect combination of formal and laid-back. As an added bonus, terracotta bridesmaid dresses can be easily styled and worn again in any season. Add some sandals and a straw bag, and, viola, you've got a summer-ready wedding-guest look for your next destination event.

spice

Warm and cozy like mulled apple cider, our spice bridesmaid dresses seriously embrace the best of the fall season. Considering a spice cake or an apple cider donut display for your reception? This is a color that will effortlessly complement those fall flavors. Mix and match spice with our rosewood dresses for a rosy-cozy match made in heaven. The glamorous Catherine dress in spice satin beautifully illustrates this rusty cinnamon shade.

metallic satin

You’ll be a total Golden Girl in our shimmering metallic satin bridesmaids dresses. Choose between gold, rose gold, neutral champagne, and rust or mix and match these metallics to channel the many shades of crunchy golden leaves outside. We love the Lisa Midi dress in neutral champagne for a September wedding look to remember.

storm blue

Blue makes a wonderful, unexpected fall wedding color, and our moody storm blue fits in perfectly with your autumn vibe. It's perfect for a wedding that toes the line between fall and winter. Check out our ultra-romantic Hannah dress in storm blue velvet, for a magical fall-in-the-countryside look. Looking to add extra layers of depth? Mix in navy groomsman accessories, or add more dimension to your bridal party by mixing this moody hue with slate blue, navy, or twilight bridesmaids dresses. 

dark mauve

Our Dark Mauve dresses are so romantic for fall. The soft, rosy shade has purple undertones that really pop with burgundy and eggplant colored florals, or bouquets of eucalyptus. Our fluttery, lighter-than-air Jackson dress really shows off this color at its most romantic, perfect for an autumn wedding a barn or winery.

dusty rose

Who says pink dresses are only for spring? Our Dusty Rose dresses are the feminine fall look that we need in 2023 and beyond. This dusty tone seriously flatters all skin tones and slides perfectly into a moody palette with colors like cabernet and taupe. Bring this blush shade into the fall with a dried-flower bouquet. And, to maximize the ultra-girly aesthetic, check out our Adelle dress, part of our popular ruffles and wraps series.

sea glass green

Like you, we are here for Sea Glass green year-round. This muted ocean green color gives us major outdoor wedding feels! It looks great paired with terracotta florals, warm purple tones, and even winter greens. It’s a crowd-pleasing color that won’t lose its charm, and plays well with our Mary High Chunky Heel in Nude Blush.

navy

Navy is so chic, especially for weddings later in the year. From city to countryside, this majestic dark blue tone instantly elevates the aesthetic, especially when paired with creamy white florals and sparkling accessories. Black-tie brides, check out our Kensie and Lydia dresses in navy satin to make your event even more formal.

taupe

Neutrals like taupe (or neutral champagne) are the perfect chameleon to incorporate into any wedding palette. Our taupe gowns fit effortlessly into any venue or mix-and-match lineup. Looking for a dress to complement a bouquet stuffed with golden, rusty hues? Taupe can do that. Decking out your altar in deep pinks and purples? These versatile neutrals are reporting for duty. Plus, neutral bridesmaid dresses are at the top of their game, as one of the most popular looks for the upcoming year. Take a look at our Gloria dress in taupe satin, for a look that is at once glamorous and chill.
