I don’t know about you, but every year when Fall rolls around, I can’t help but get excited! Between big, cozy sweaters, hot lattes (I could never choose between pumpkin spice and chai tea!), bonfires, and the gorgeous change in scenery, there’s no better season! And my favorite part about autumn? The weddings! Ugh…I could literally go on for days about my love for autumn weddings, but rather than bore you with my long list of fall favorites, I’ve got something else in mind! From soft and airy neutrals to deep, romantic shades, with the help of Kennedy Blue bridesmaid dresses, here are four wedding color palettes that I am absolutely loving for fall!
Kennedy Blue’s chiffon bridesmaid dresses are the perfect choice for an autumn wedding. The crinkle chiffon has a heavier texture, but they still have the light, airy feel that flows beautifully, especially in an outdoor setting. Not only are their fabrics and styles on point, but they have a broad range of colors that allow almost every bride to find the shade she needs! After looking through the whole collection, my favorites fall hues are: latte, wine, teal, and navy. Let’s see how I styled them, shall we?
Featured dress: Kennedy Blue Lucy
The Color: This is one of Kennedy Blue’s newest additions to their happy little family and I am loving it! And surprisingly, the light shade is actually really flattering on a number of different skin tones. It may not flatter those who are especially fair, but that’s nothing a little spray tan can’t fix! The best thing about this neutral shade is that it acts as a blank slate and is perfect for adding vibrant accents throughout the rest of the wedding.
The Accents: Think gorgeous fall hues such as deep, crimson reds and burnt oranges. These bold colors will make the perfect accent to your simple, latte bridesmaid dresses. Consider adding these bright pops in the bouquets, place settings, and especially the invitations! I also would highly recommend adding metals into your scheme such as gold or bronze. They would be a gorgeous addition as part of the flatware, centerpieces, or even the jewelry.
Featured dress: Kennedy Blue Julia
The Color: Kennedy Blue’s wine is a bold and vibrant purple that looks fantastic against the backdrop of bright autumn hues. It’s not too deep, not too light, and looks good on any and every skin tone making it the perfect fall shade for your bridesmaids to wear!
The Accents: It might come as bit of a shock, but this color looks amazing with other vibrant shades besides it. My personal favorite is a fun pop of teal. The contrasting blue-green will look gorgeous as an accent within the flowers, furniture, and centerpieces. However, be mindful that this combination could turn peacock-y if not executed gracefully. Keep the focus on the purple hues (maybe add in some darker and lighter shades such as eggplants or lilacs) and then be sparse when adding in your brighter pop.
Featured dress: Kennedy Blue Anna
The Color: Another one of Kennedy Blue’s newest additions, this gorgeous blue-green tone has just the right amount of dustiness and vibrancy to make it the perfect teal shade for fall! In fact, it’s serious perfection for any season, but paired with some lighter shades and some hints of gray, your wedding color palette will look gorgeous against a bright, autumn background.
The Accents: Teal is perfect on its own, but a couple of soft accent never hurt! Mint and grays will really help to make the teal shade pop. The men would look absolutely dapper in gray suits and then you can add hints of mint in the decor. Keep the flowers pretty soft and neutral — whites and off-whites would look stunning! If you really want to spice things up, consider mix and match bridesmaid dresses in teal and mint! The two colors look gorgeous next to one another!
Featured dress: Kennedy Blue Delilah
The Color: Although navy has just recently started popping up in weddings like crazy, it’s actually a very classic and chic option! If you want a timeless color other than black or red, navy is a gorgeous shade that will look good on every bridesmaid and in just about every setting
The Accents: The deep blue hue can be accented in a number of different ways to make it appropriate for each season. For a fall look, pair it with hints of blush and a grayish-blue for a “au revoir! to summer” feel! The men can be suited in light or dark gray and then the ceremony and reception can adorned in hints of blush and dusty blue. The bouquets would also look amazing with relatively neutral flowers, green leaves, and pops of a dusty blue.

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!
In my opinion, choosing your wedding colors is one of the hardest wedding decisions you’ll have to make. If you’re anything like me, you’re indecisive, overwhelmed by the amount of gorgeous color options, and your color preferences change on a weekly basis. How’s a girl to choose!?
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.
