Deciding what color to choose for a bridesmaid dress is a far-from-easy task. As a bride-to-be, you want to choose a hue that you love (it’s your wedding after all!), but at the same time you want the shade to be flattering on a range of complexions and feel fitting to the venue you choose for your ‘I dos’. That’s a tall order! If you’re planning a fall or winter wedding, plum bridesmaid dresses are a gorgeous choice we’re loving right now.

On the heels of lavender as the It shade of spring and summer, plum is the perfect transitional color if you’re into purple tones, but want something deeper in the cooler months. Rich and elegant, it’s the type of color that flatters all skin tones making it extremely versatile for every bridesmaid in your party and will feel stylish in any setting whether you’re having a rustic wedding outdoors or a traditional ceremony in a church.

Like the fruit, plum can actually vary in terms of its pigment, having either red or blue undertones. If you’re going for a mixed palette for your bridesmaids, you’ll want to make sure the dresses you choose all fall within a similar spectrum. For a variegated bridesmaid lineup, plum is a gorgeous shade to mix with lighter shades of purple like lavender, magenta or orchid whether you opt for a range of solids or want to incorporate floral prints into the mix. For a bolder bridesmaid lineup, plum is striking with other colors including shades of green like sage, pistachio, or mint, or warmer tones like marigold and dandelion. For a vibrant pop, chartreuse is gorgeous as an accent color, too. If you’d prefer just a splash of color with plum bridesmaid dresses, you can integrate these colors into a bouquet or with accessories.

Here, we pulled together an assortment of plum bridesmaid dresses to consider for your wedding day, with options starting at under $100! From halter necklines to one-shoulder styles and strapless silhouettes in a range of mini, midi, and maxi lengths, you’re sure to spot one you and your ’maids will love.
