For fall weddings, summer seersucker, and springtime pastel bridesmaid dresses probably aren’t going to fit the bill. So we asked Carin Rosenberg Levine and Julia Lichtman Kepniss of Hitched Maids in Georgetown, to share their top three bridesmaid dresses for autumn weddings.
1. Jenny Yoo “Justine” in slate Eastern silk shantung
“These Jenny Yoo dresses offer enough structure to be figure-flattering, but the fun pleated skirt is party-ready. Eastern silk shantung is a great fabric for fall since it has movement without looking too beachy, and a silky sheen without looking too heavy,” say Rosenberg Levine and Lichtman Kepniss.
2. Amsale “Style G558C” in charcoal silk chiffon
“Flowy chiffon dresses are fall-appropriate when worn long; you can still have a romantic look for your bridal party while giving your girls a bit more coverage. A statement-making one shoulder is a fun alternative to a strapless dress, but keep it classic by choosing a muted neutral color,” say Rosenberg Levine and Lichtman Kepniss.
3. Thread “Tyler” in blackberry duchesse satin
“This chic cocktail dress has clean lines with a retro-inspired neckline, all in a rich, cool-weather appropriate duchesse satin for a polished and sophisticated fall look,” say Rosenberg Levine and Lichtman Kepniss.
