Color trends and palettes are very 'in' lately and we're excited to help you put together some ideas for your big day! There are so many different options and ideas with thousands of color schemes, so we're here to share some of our favorite wedding color palettes and hopefully help in the planning process! Whether it's with earthy tones or lilac hues, fall weddings are one-of-a-kind.
Earth tones are a great option for a fall theme. The amount of variations you can mix and match with these colors are endless. If you're more of the creative type, this is one of the best wedding color palettes for fall, because you can mix and match a variety of colors and try a bunch of different options. For instance, my favorites are the deep maroons, earthy greens, and blush accents. They are subtle, but also breathtaking. The deeper maroons and earthy greens would look flawless with a long chiffon bridesmaid dress in blush. Another fun option that's very popular is adding flower crowns for a boho look. It adds a touch of whimsical elegance that's to die for.
Lilac and eggplant hues are a beautiful choice for fall themes and create an essence of happiness and love. What a perfect touch to a day that will be filled with just that! All of these shades can be intertwined and won't clash with one another. This is one of my favorite color palettes because of that exact reason. It also makes planning a little easier when everything flows so well together. Who doesn't love that?! Whatever shades you end up choosing for your big day, it's sure to be flawless.
This vibrant color palette is super fun! It's tastefully bright and has a modern take on the classic wedding red. This theme adds some spice into the mix of things! The cheery colors would pair well with a short or long chiffon bridesmaid dress in claret, that your 'maids are sure to love. The fun thing about this look is that you can make it as bold and daring or as soft and simple as you would like.
Any one of these beautiful fall wedding color palettes would look pristine whether you're inside an elegant venue or hosting your big day outdoors. The options are really endless when it comes to these three looks, which gives you the luxury of getting lots of help and opinions from your loved ones in the planning process!

As a soon-to-be bride, choosing my wedding flowers has been one of the hardest decisions I’ve had to make – and honestly, I still haven’t decided! There are so many pretty options out there and narrowing all of them down has been nothing short of overwhelming. To make the decision a bit easier on you, I’ve gathered some of my absolute favorite bridesmaid bouquets from some of our Kennedy Blue weddings that I know you’re going to love!
Styling your besties in mismatched bridesmaid dresses has been a huge trend for the past few years. And as popular as it still is, we’re slowly starting to see brides revert to having all of their girls dressed in the same style. So how do you decide what’s best for your own wedding? Here are some points to get you thinking about whether you should go the route of mismatched bridesmaid dresses or styling your girls in all the same look.
Romantic, elegant, and totally on-trend; we’re currently obsessing over Bordeaux bridesmaid dresses! Inspired by Marsala, Pantone’s 2016 color of the year, our newest color was created out of the need for a deep red with a romantic pink undertone. Literally, you guys, this color is everything we’ve ever dreamt of! Flattering on literally every skin tone, we think this is a color that your bridesmaids are easily going to fall in love with!
Taking Your Measurements
For the most accurate measurements, do not measure over your clothing. Your measurements should be taken while wearing undergarments similar to the ones you will wear with your dress. The measuring tape shouldn't be pulled too tight or have too much slack, and should always be parallel with the floor.
**Wedding apparel is typically sized differently than retail clothing, so keep in mind that it's not uncommon to find yourself requiring alterations.
Bust size: Wrap the tape around your back and under your arms at the fullest part of your bust (not underneath the bust).
Waist size: While standing up straight, bend at the waist to one side. Take the measurement where the natural crease happens in your side. This should be a few inches above your belly button.
Hip size: Standing with your feet together, wrap the tape around the fullest part of your hips and butt to get this measurement.
Choosing your correct size
Compare these three measurements to the Kennedy Blue size chart above. It is very important that you order the largest size that corresponds to your measurements. For example, if your bust measures 40.5" (size 12), your waist measures 31" (size 10) and your hips measure 41.5" (size 8), we advise that you order a size 12, and get your dress altered down to custom fit your body. Ordering anything smaller than a size 12 would not fit in the bust area. Please note: Our bridal gown size chart is different than the bridesmaids sizing and is listed below.
