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.
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.
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.
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 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.
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...
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.
