Whether you're planning to get married in the spring, summer, fall, or winter, yellow bridesmaid dresses are a bright and bold choice for your bridal party. From sunny shades to moody tones, yellow bridesmaid dresses come in a wide range of statement-making hues to suit all seasons and skin tones.

When it comes to warm-weather weddings, you can't go wrong with chiffon gowns in light yellow and lemon sorbet. For winter weddings, velvet and silk gowns, in gold-tinged and mustard hues, feel festive and sophisticated–especially for formal nuptials. If you're not sticking to a specific color palette, yellow bridesmaid 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 bridesmaid dresses to brighten up any bridal party.
