Fall Wedding Colors & Bridesmaid Dresses We Can’t Get Enough Of
Fall is the busiest wedding season because of its agreeable weather, beautiful backdrops, and cozy aesthetic. In fall you have the option of embracing the many colors of the season or standing out with a bold modern color palette. You also have a wide range of bridesmaid dress styles to choose from since you will likely be blessed with reasonable autumn weather and terrain. We created this guide to help you decide how to incorporate all your favorite parts of the fall season into your wedding day!
Top Trending Fall Wedding Colors for this Upcoming Season
Whether you choose to go with a classic fall wedding color palette or a modern take on this beautiful season, you have plenty of options to choose from. Fall comes with its own set of warm colors as the trees change colors: deep reds, rusty oranges, and bright golds. Some brides are choosing the more underrated colors of the season like nature-inspired greens, modest neutrals, and even minimalistic black. Below are some of our favorite fall bridesmaid dress colors that have been trending lately.
1) Olive Green Bridesmaid Dresses for Nature Vibes
Green has been increasingly popular over the last couple years. Why? Because green matches every nature-inspired color scheme. Olive green is a beautiful green shade for fall because it contrasts nicely with the warm tones of autumn without completely stealing the show. Olive green bridesmaid dresses look great with white, peach, beige, gold, or terracotta accents.
2) Cinnamon Bridesmaid Dresses for a Bold Fall Color Scheme
Cinnamon is our favorite bold orange bridesmaid dress color for fall weddings. This shade is inspired by the cinnamon we use in so many of our favorite fall foods and drinks. As the main seasoning in pumpkin spice, we think cinnamon is our favorite color for fall. In bright outdoor lighting, this color looks like the bold orange of autumn leaves.
3) Black Bridesmaid Dresses for a Classic Wedding Look
Black is the best of both worlds. It’s a non-traditional bridesmaid dress color so your wedding will stand out in the crowd. Yet, it’s also a classic color in design and fashion. Everyone loves their little black dress, so yes, this might actually be a dress your bridesmaids will want to re-wear. Black will stand out in front of the warm tones of fall and fit in perfectly with your chic and minimalist wedding color palette.
4) Rust Bridesmaid Dresses Perfect for Fall Weddings
Satin bridesmaid dresses could add an extra touch of elegance to your wedding. Our rust bridesmaid dresses are made from silky soft satin fabric with a hint of sheen to it. This shade of earthy orange is a subtle and light take on terracotta. We love the gentle warmth this color brings to fall wedding color schemes.
September Wedding Colors For Early Fall Celebrations
September is the transition month from the heat of summer into the cool fall season. If your September wedding is at the beginning of the month, you’ll likely still be enjoying the sun and warmth of summer. If your wedding is at the end of September, you’ll get to experience some of the fresh fall weather. This transition from summer to fall is the perfect time to get creative with your fall wedding colors.
1) Moss Bridesmaid Dresses for a Nature-Inspired Look
Moss is another green shade that looks wonderful with the warm tons of autumn. Our moss bridesmaid dresses are a light, muted gray-green. This color is so easy to coordinate with your other favorite fall wedding colors. If you want to stay away from the brighter colors of fall for your September wedding, you can accent moss green with white, pale yellow, tan, and peach.
2) Beige Bridesmaid Dresses for a Neutral Palette
Since September is only the very beginning of the fall season, we recommend choosing a subtle fall wedding color scheme. Latte bridesmaid dresses are a light and airy beige color. Neutral wedding colors are a great way to keep your wedding timeless and tasteful. Inspired by the soothing color of coffee with cream, latte is the perfect neutral for a fall wedding.
October Wedding Colors For a Pop of Color
October is when most of the autumn leaves start to turn to their most vibrant shades. Take inspiration from nature by adding pops of color to your wedding the same way the trees are adding pops of color to the landscape. Since October weddings are in the peak of fall, you have tons of fun decor, color, and dress options to choose from.
1) Jewel-Tone Emerald Green Bridesmaid Dresses
Emerald is a gorgeous way to add contrast to your wedding colors, especially if you’re incorporating a lot of neutrals or warm tones. Our emerald green bridesmaid dresses are available in chiffon, velvet, and embroidered fabrics so you have the option of adding different textures to your wedding. We especially love emerald in velvet to add a shiny softness and keep your bridesmaids warm in chilly October weather.
2) Cinnamon Rose Bridesmaid Dresses for a Pink Palette
Another cinnamon-inspired idea for fall is our cinnamon rose bridesmaid dresses. This color is a unique muted shade of pink. Cinnamon rose is perfect if you love pink but want to stick with fall wedding colors to match the season. We love the way this color looks with peach, orange, beige, and moss.
Gorgeous November Wedding Colors for the End of Fall
November is the best month to choose warm fall wedding colors. During November, we start getting cozy by the fire with our loved ones, planning our holidays, and decorating for the season. Create a welcoming and comforting atmosphere for your friends and family at your wedding with your fall wedding colors and decor. We love deep reds, toasty oranges, and pops of neutrals for this part of the year.
1) Burgundy Bridesmaid Dresses for a Classic Autumn Look
If you’re thinking about going with a classic autumn wedding color scheme we highly recommend bordeaux bridesmaid dresses. This burgundy color looks incredible with a wide range of fun fall colors like forest green, vibrant orange, and amber gold. If you want a more subtle fall color palette, dark red also looks great with white and other neutral accents.
2) Terracotta Bridesmaid Dresses for an Orange Color Scheme
How about the color of pumpkin pie, fallen leaves, and apple cider for your fall bridesmaid dresses? Our spice bridesmaid dresses are a light shade of terracotta that will pull you fully into the autumn season. This color is gorgeous among other shades of orange and beige neutrals. Accent spice bridesmaid dresses with dried flowers, pampas grass, and small pumpkins in different shades.
Fall Wedding Color Schemes to Include In Your Autumn Wedding
There’s no better way to get inspiration for your wedding than a few photos from real weddings. Choose a fall wedding color scheme that suits your style: whether you love a boho, minimalist, or romantic aesthetic. Below are some of our favorite fall wedding color combinations with inspiration for bridesmaids dresses, decor, and floral arrangements!
1) Romantic Boho Burnt Orange Wedding Colors
The boho aesthetic is always a vibe, but it suits the coziness of fall weddings best of all. Rich colors combined with natural elements create a lovely atmosphere for your wedding. Colors like burnt orange, copper, and pale pink provide warmth and comfort. Accent these warm tones with light pampas grass, lots of dark green leaves, natural woven details, and colorful glass. You can even include fresh fruits like apricots or persimmons in your boho fall wedding decor.
2) Olive Green and White Fall Wedding Colors
Olive green is the new neutral. This color matches just about any color scheme, is subtle enough to work as a base color, and works for weddings in any season of the year. For an effortless fall wedding color scheme, combine olive green bridesmaid dresses, white roses, pampas grass accents, and big neutral bouquets. These simple colors will look beautiful with any backdrop including vivid fall foliage, spanish moss hanging from oak trees, or a forest of evergreens.
3) Dreamy Neutral Fall Wedding Color Scheme
Realistically, fall is only colorful for a few weeks while the leaves change colors. Most of the season is marked by calming neutral shades of brown and tan. These neutrals are accented with hints of subtle natural greens. Create a beautiful neutral wedding with pampas grass, white roses, and natural wood. For a bit of color add bunches of eucalyptus greenery and touches of burnt orange.
4) Vibrant Orange Bridesmaid Dresses & Neutral Accents
Contrasting a bold color with some calming neutrals creates a fun effect that mimics the natural juxtaposition of fall. Fall is known for the changing of leaves to vivid shades followed by a long period of tan neutrals. Create this same effect in your wedding with cinnamon bridesmaid dresses and burnt orange ribbons contrasted with neutrals like white roses and dried grasses. All of these elements will complement the orange, yellow, and brown shades in the fall backdrop.
5) Romantic Pale Pink Fall Wedding Color Scheme
Just because it’s fall doesn’t mean you have to choose only traditional fall colors. Desert rose bridesmaid dresses are a muted shade of pink that is a romantic and dreamy but also complements the fall season. Decorate your fairytale wedding with pink and white roses, greenery, and touches of gold. For a modern and minimalist touch, add black accents and keep plenty of blank space in your decor.
6) Slate Blue Fall Wedding Color Scheme
Velvet is one of our favorite bridesmaid dress fabrics for fall. Choosing an unexpected color for your dresses, like slate blue, can add an extra layer of interest to your wedding. Slate blue velvet bridesmaid dresses are the perfect combination of a warm fabric texture and a cool toned color. Complement this light and airy look with baby's breath, greenery, and black accents. You could also include some fall-inspired natural elements like deer antlers, natural woods, and pampas grass.
7) Navy Blue and Orange Fall Wedding Color Scheme
Navy might not be the first color that comes to your mind for fall but it could be the perfect shade to complement the rest of your wedding colors. Navy bridesmaid dresses are generally flattering on everybody (and we even have a jumpsuit option for more comfort). Since navy is a mild color, you can add lots of pops of bright orange, dark greens, and scarlet red. The red, orange, and navy color scheme looks beautiful with any fall backdrop.
Create the Fall Wedding Theme of Your Dreams
Your fall wedding can be as seasonal and festive as you’d like. It could even be minimalist and subtle. Fall is all about transition, so get inspired by the dark greens of September, the bright red leaves of October, or the soft neutrals of November. Start planning your future wedding by choosing your favorite fall color palette, a flattering bridesmaid dress color, and an aesthetic you love.
