To go with Halloween, colder temps, and the desire for darker gowns, we thought we’d highlight some pretty gowns for your bridal crew that come in darker hues. As temps drop, it’s common for winter weddings to have color palettes in darker tones, which means bridesmaids get to wear darker colors too. And often, these are super stylish dresses they can wear again, so it’s a win-win for brides looking to up the formality factor and girls that want practical yet fashionable options. Here are some gorgeous dark bridesmaid dresses we know you and your bridesmaids will love.
DARK BRIDESMAID DRESSES IN CLASSIC BLACK
Timeless and universally flattering, black is a nice option for bridesmaids no matter their size, skin tone, or height. Bridesmaid designers such as BHDLN, Hayley Paige Occasions are showing beautiful gowns in an array of options in black.
And since there are no rules, you can even wear black as the bride! Check out this real wedding where the bride donned black in the dress of her dreams.
GREEN WITH ENVY
Consider hunter green for a fall or winter wedding for a contemporary and chic look. This hue is great for outdoor photo ops but also looks rich indoors, as it pops against a variety of backdrops.
CABERNET IS THE NEW MAROON
Another very pretty dark color is that of wine — or cabernet as some say. It looks rich and compliments a variety of skin tones.
BRIDESMAID DRESSES IN NAVY
Always a great option, navy adds color where black does not, but it’s still dark and sophisticated. As a background for any bouquet color combo, navy looks rich and modern whether your bridal party is 2 or 12 people.
