Rock My Wedding's guide to wearing autumn bridesmaid dresses

Mismatched Autumn Bridesmaid Dresses

Choosing your bridesmaid colours is an important step! The colours of your wedding party's outfits can cohesively emphasise your wedding colour palette. For autumn and fall weddings, these usually are those enchanting forest greens, deep burgundies, and brunt rust oranges. With seasonal weddings come seasonal colour palettes! Most couples will choose to work within autumnal palettes to ensure it complements the season and natural backdrop of the day. However, if you're having some trouble choosing a colour, or your bridesmaids can't decide on the most flattering shade for them, you can always go for mismatched bridesmaid dresses to keep everyone happy! Don't they look so good?

Orange Bridesmaid Dresses

One of the most popular bridesmaid dress colours of the last few years is burnt orange. The gorgeous warm tone is flattering with different skin tones and hair colours and makes it an easy choice. Say you've decided on the colour, but what about the fabric? Take satin, velvet or chiffon. These fabrics have that luxury feeling to them and are the perfect choice for that upcoming party season! Plus, these fabrics can be a little warmer as that autumnal chill creeps in, whilst also pairing well with faux fur shawls or other cover-ups!

Red Autumnal Bridesmaid Gowns

Why not be a little bolder? A striking red bridesmaid dress is ideal for those looking to ensure their wedding party stands out! Pairings of different colours can really change the whole mood and vibe of your wedding! Burnt orange dresses and pampas grass bouquets give a laidback boho vibe whereas red bridesmaid dresses and red rose bouquets heighten that feeling of romance and add some gothic vibes! Choose your colour based on the theme of your day.
