Whether you're planning to get married in the spring, summer, fall, or winter, yellow dresses are a bright and bold choice for your wedding party. From sunny shades to moody tones, yellow bridal party dresses come in a wide range of statement-making hues to suit all seasons and skin tones. While it may seem like an unpopular choice for a bridal party ensemble (we're all about unique look!), there are still countless on the market to choose from. A few of our favorite places to shop these golden-hued gowns include Needle & Thread, Reformation, Azazie, Birdy Grey, and Dear Cleo.

Best yet? You don't necessarily need to be having a spring or summer wedding to rock a sunny palette. For winter weddings, velvet and silk gowns, in gold-tinged and mustard hues, feel festive and sophisticated–especially for formal nuptials. When it comes to warm-weather weddings, you can't go wrong with chiffon gowns in light yellow and lemon sorbet. We're especially obsessed with a super pale yellow in linen or silk for an effortless and airy look. If you're not sticking to a specific color palette, yellow bridal party dresses also blend beautifully with other gowns in bright or pastel shades.

From floor-length gowns in deep ochre to midi dresses in light marigold, we've found the best yellow bridal party dresses to brighten up any bridal party.

What to Look for in a Yellow Bridesmaid Dress

When it comes to selecting yellow bridesmaid dresses, it's all about choosing the look that will make your crew look and feel the most confident on the big day. Of course, this starts with nailing the exact shade of yellow. Whether it be trying on different dresses or comparing swatches, you'll want to test out a few different shades to ensure that the one you pick ultimately complements all of your members' skin tones. Regardless of the hue, have your squad try on different styles and silhouettes. Consider choosing one shade of yellow but having each of your members pick their own unique style for a personalized mismatched look. Equally important, think about your wedding aesthetic and how you want yellow to be portrayed on your big day. For a soft, more subtle and organic type of vibe, we recommend a super pale yellow in linen or cotton fabric. This look is ideal for understated, more informal nuptials in the warmer months. Similarly, we love a bright and sunny tone in chiffon or silk for a color-filled spring-time affair. On the other hand, you may utilize a deep, rich tone such as mustard or marigold in satin for a formal winter wedding.

FAQ
  • What shades of yellow work best for a spring or summer wedding?

    For a spring or summer wedding, we love light pastel yellow, bright hues like canary yellow, and floral print dresses.

  • Are yellow bridal party dresses appropriate for a winter wedding?

    Of course! Darker yellow tones like mustard, marigold, and deep ochre are stylish and appropriate choices for a winter wedding.

  • Who buys the bridal party dresses?

    Generally speaking, members of the bridal party are expected to purchase their own dresses.
