There's something so whimsical about autumn weddings: The leaves are changing colors, the weather's getting colder and there's a festive spirit leading up to the Holiday season. Autumn also brings a wide selection of fall bridesmaid dresses for your BFFs, from elegant satin dresses to romantic velvet gowns.

Whether you want to lean into classic fall shades, like burgundy, wine and terracotta, or opt for rich jewel tones, like emerald, amethyst and sapphire, the sky's the limit when it comes to the color palette of your bridal party's gowns. While dresses with sleeves tend to be popular in the fall, strapless gowns, plunging necklines and shorter hemlines are still on the table thanks to slightly warmer temps. Where fabric is concerned, silk, velvet and satin—as well as florals, embellishments and patterns—are also very on theme for the season.

Remember: It's always a good idea to consider your wedding's color palette, the dress code of your event, and your venue while choosing your crew's fits. (For even more tips, read through our best practices on how to pick the right bridesmaid dresses.) To jumpstart your inspiration, we've gathered our favorite autumn bridesmaid dresses for every wedding style and formality, below.
