Planning

Autumn is well and truly here, there's a distinct chill in the air and the leaves are all manner of beautiful shades. This makes me very excited for lots reasons, crispy leaves, steaming hot mugs of hot chocolate and naturally the plethora of gorgeous hued bridesmaids dresses hitting the shelves right now. If you missed the launch of Rock My Wedding: The Podcast, then you'll definitely want to hit play while you browse these picks - our very own founder Charlotte O'Shea and graphic designer Becky Sappor take you through the trials and tribulations of bridesmaids attire. While here on RMW, we're making the shopping a breeze. From berry toned beauties, to shiny emerald greens, from fancy florals to sumptuous velvet, here are RMW's ten best outfits to ask your ladies to wear this A/W...
Raspberry Tones From Reiss
I love warm berry tones for the Autumn and the Reiss Karina Dress is the perfect shade of pink. It's not too girly and it's not too bright, super flattering for most skin tones. I also love the soft, draped fabric and the way it falls just below the knee.
Charcoal Grey Sparkles
As mentioned in the podcast, these Maya sequinned dresses are hugely popular with you lovely lot and we LOVE the Charcoal version is exactly the right tone for an A/W wedding.
Red Wine Shades From Rewritten
You really can't go wrong with Rewritten dresses, beautifully made and super flattering, their Chianti shade is the ideal colour for weddings in the colder months.
Autumnal Florals
I love a floral maxi dress and this ASOS DESIGN Pleated number is gorgeous. The actual flowers for this print are more muted than other floral prints I've seen, making it perfect for this time of year. This gown is ideal for those of you who want to mix and match your bridesmaids dresses with a selection of others - just use the colours of the flowers to source complimentary gowns.
Classic Navy
TH&TH make the most beautiful dresses and none more romantic than their Bardot style. I love the sleeves on this gown, so soft and pretty. The navy colour is elegant and classic and we all know, it's a shade that's universally flattering.
Bring Texture With Velvet
Bring a little bit of Autumn texture to proceedings with this pleated Velvet Dress From Ted Baker. It ticks so many style boxes - pleats, velvet, halterneck and berry toned. Sartorial heaven.
Bardot Necked Beauty From Coast
As we mentioned in the podcast, Coast dresses are RMW favourites, with one of our most liked Instagram images EVER being of maids in Coast separates. For A/W we love their Imi Maxi Dress in Navy.
Emerald Green Mermaid Vibes
I have a love hate relationship with green, I'm not a fan of the shade in general, but it's been hard to escape from it this season and there's no denying it looks gorgeous for bridesmaids. This Amelia Rose Emerald Green Maxi is bound to convince even the most vehement of green-haters...
Ruffled Perfection
I'm a sucker for a ruffle. They always add a touch of flamenco, which to me suggests something a little flirty and very feminine. This Y.A.S. Ruffled Tiered Maxi Dress is the perfect shade of petrol blue too. Style note - this dress works beautifully with copper and gold, making it a total dream to accessorise.
Polka Dot Cutesy
If you like your bridesmaids dresses a little more vintage inspired, then the 50s esque Erica Dress from Coast is the one for you. A polka dot never fails to make me smile and this is a seriously flattering gown, with the flared skirt and elbow length sleeve.
