Fall brides are getting ramped up and in full wedding planning mode by now for their September, October and November weddings. The length of a bridesmaid dress can say a lot about the season and formality of a wedding. For summer weddings, we see mostly short and light fabric dresses, unless your wedding is in a formal church or a black tie affair. In winter we tend to see deeper hues and longer dresses on the bridesmaids. Where is the line drawn, and how do you know where your wedding fits in and how to dress your gals appropriately?
If you are hosting a fall wedding and your wedding vibe is in between the two style extremes, you might want to consider a dress that is not too long or not too short. The Bill Levkoff bridesmaids dress shown above stuck out (along with many others) as a dress that will swing formal or wintery if needed. Consider pairing it with the right set of bridal shoes and you can be sporting it at a summer event in August!
Other factors to consider when selecting the ideal bridesmaid dress style for your fall wedding- the fabric and the style. For example, the dress above has a satin fabric lending to a more formal event - but its one-shoulder trendy style offers a more casual, less formal overall dress. You will try on and look at hundreds of bridesmaids' dresses, each tempting you with a different style, fabric, length or color that will bring you closer to finding your final pick!
How did you decide what length to keep your bridesmaid dresses at? Did you consider the appropriateness of your dress in terms of season, color or fabric?
