Bridesmaid Dresses: Are Pastel Wedding Colors Appropriate for a Fall Wedding?

Q:

I want to get married in October, but I also want pastel yellow bridesmaids dresses. Is it inappropriate to have a pastel wedding color for a fall wedding?

A:

We have good news for you: Pastels are popping up in bridal parties year-round! The key here is to select a dress with a heavy fabric. Look for something in satin or crepe with long sleeves or a jacket. If the dress you love is sleeveless, you might add elbow-length gloves. You might also consider incorporating some rich fall hues, like orange and green, into the bridesmaid bouquets to match the shade of yellow you select for the dresses.
