If you hold your wedding in fall, it's time to choose bridesmaid dresses! The styles for fall are different than those you might choose for a summer wedding. Here are some useful tips on how to pick the great bridesmaid dresses for your fall wedding.
One of the most important factors when shopping the dress is determining the level of wedding formality. If you are planning an evening wedding, then floor length bridesmaid dresses will look the most elegant. Daytime weddings will have more flexibility. For a traditional wedding, long dresses may be a good choice, although tea length can also work well if the bride is wearing a gown with only a short train. If your wedding is relaxed rustic style, the dresses in short style can be great.
Chiffons and organzas are wonderful for the summer months, but they are not suitable for chillier weather. Turn to weightier materials like satin, dupioni or shantung, or even a luxurious brocade. Think about incorporating other warm and cozy fabrics like cashmere or mohair in the form of wraps to wear with the bridesmaid dresses.
In terms of style, almost anything goes, as long as it is not too bare for the chillier fall months. If you are planning on strapless bridesmaid dresses, they should definitely be accessorized with wraps or shawls. Spaghetti straps are okay for fall, but a wider strap or even a halter would be a bit more seasonal. Another idea is to choose dresses that tie in with the one shoulder trend that is all the rage right now. This would be a stunning style for a formal wedding when interpreted in a rich copper satin fabric.
As to color, it is best to stay away from light pastels. Chocolate brown, organe and bronze are some of the most gorgeous fall colors. You can also think about selecting burgundy bridesmaid dresses, this colort is not dark, but that has the right richness for fall.
With these tips in mind, you will be sure to find absolutely stunning dresses for bridesmaids that will enhance the style of your wedding.
