While some couples dream of warm weather weddings, many others choose celebrations just as the start of the cool weather season takes hold, and for good reason. With the leaves changing color, the holidays right around the color, and the festive spirit all around, autumn is one of the most popular times of the year to say "I do." And if you’re one of the fall-time brides looking for bridesmaid dress inspiration, you’ve come to the right place.

First thing’s first: There are no set "rules" when it comes to fall bridesmaid dresses, Revelry’s senior director of marketing, Alena Wells, tells Brides. That said, she does see a surge in textured fabrics like velvet, sequin, and satin from September through November. As for colors, "jewel tones like emerald, burgundy, and black are [autumn] classics and not going anywhere," Wells explains. "We also tend to see our dresses with sleeves sell more for fall and winter weddings."

While aspects like rich hues and sleeves might be popular in the fall, Wells says what's most important is a bride finds styles that match her day-of vision and aesthetic. Whether that means you select a color palette and let your bridesmaids pick dress styles they prefer or simply find an option everyone loves, as long as the gowns make you happy and keep your crew comfy, you’ll be in business. 

Below, we’ve rounded up 20 of the most popular fall bridesmaid dress styles fit for any bride’s autumn celebration.

FAQ
  • What should I keep in mind when shopping for a fall bridesmaid dress?

    "Choose a color palette and/or style you love now and don't worry about the timelessness of it," says Wells. "Your wedding is about being happy in the moment of life you're in now, and not worrying about details like aging trends." Pay attention to your venue style, wedding colors, and bridesmaids’ preferences when selecting your party’s looks.

  • Will any bridesmaid dress work for a fall wedding?

    While any gown will work for a fall wedding, Wells says it's a good idea to consider the climate when making your selections. "If you're choosing a spaghetti strap dress for an outdoor November wedding, consider pairing it with fur shrugs to keep your bridesmaids warm," she says. 

  • Are fall bridesmaid dresses expensive?

    While fall bridesmaids' dresses aren’t typically more or less expensive than other season’s looks, if you opt for a more luxurious fabric or a style with long sleeves or detailed embellishments, the price may increase. Luckily there are plenty of options for every budget so rest assured, your dream bridesmaid dresses are out there, and they don’t have to break the bank!
