Now that you’ve found the dress, it’s time to start thinking about your bridal party in full—and that means, bridesmaid dresses. And with a fall wedding on the horizon, allow the gorgeous autumnal tones to inspire your bridal party's overall look. While many might think of the crisp and brisk season as one full of darker colors and neutral tones, it’s actually quite the opposite, rife with saturated color, rich florals, and more. Perfect colors for fall bridesmaid dresses.

There is an elegance that comes along with fall fashion, and there’s no reason why you shouldn’t find the same inspiration in rich colors when it comes to your autumn bridesmaid dresses. This fall, we’re particularly inspired by deep hunter greens, classic navy blues, and bright reds for those seeking a bold vibe. In addition, we’re challenging the norms of traditional fall assortments, continuing the floral and gray trends that more often lend themselves to weddings of the spring and summer variety.

With the below selection of fall bridesmaid dresses, we guarantee you’ve never felt more inspired. Go for a monochromatic grouping, ombré bridesmaid effect, or even create a more modern selection of more than one color in the mix.

Here, our favorite colors for fall bridesmaid dresses.

Though light and airy in tone, a soft gray tone is a chic fall alternative to the summertime all-white wedding party. It makes for a subtle contrast from your ivory gown that also lends a nod towards the darker suiting of the groomsmen.

Navy Blue Bridesmaid Dresses

Nothing is more classic than navy blue. And, while it’s an year-round bridal party trend, it never quite seems as appropriate as it does come fall. It’s that black-lover’s toe-dip into the world of color, but brings with it a regal essence that is largely unmatched.

For bold brides, consider a bright tone like red. It’s whimsical in feel, but still perfect for an elegant affair. Think: Audrey Hepburn’s Givenchy look from Funny Face meets Michelle Obama’s 2013 inaugural gown from Jason Wu.

To make your florals fall and winter appropriate, choose moody patterns that have a deep base tone. With a background of black, navy, burgundy, and more, though, you’ve created a seasonal garden in your bridal party.
