I have a slight dilemma(well maybe only in my head but still) Here’s the story, i am having a Maid/Matron of Honor and 2 BM’s. Originally i had picked a a two-color satin strapless for all three of them to wear but then one of my BM’s informed me that she and her husband were trying to concieve their second child and after some deliberation we decided that satin would not be the best thing for a preggie Bridesmaid or Best Man to wear especially since she would most likley 6+ months by my wedding. And so we choose the below posted dress for the flowy style of the dress, so that way whether she got pregnant or not we would be covered. But after we had ordered the dress,i took a second look at it and now the more i look at it the harder time i am having picturing this in a FALL wedding, to me it just seems like a late Spring early Summer type dress. My Maid/Matron of Honor sensed that i wasnt head-over-heels for the dress and was suggesting that maybe we just use that as the back up dress—well that is most def out of the questions because just last week my Bridesmaid or Best Man told me she was pregnant! (dont get me wrong, i am super excited for her, this post is not in anyway against her being pregnant whats-so-ever)
So here is my question for you wonderful ladies: Could/will this dress work for a fall wedding? (mind you the color will be Burnt Orange not the below pictured green)
Thanks In Advance,

I think it could definitely work. A shawl in a coordinating color and similar fabric could be really beautiful and help with the warmth factor in the fall. It’s a lovely dress.

I think in the color you’re picking it would work nicely. Ditto on the shawl or coat.

Cute dresses! I think you could make this style of dress work for any season. Keep in mind that your colors and your flowers will add more to a specific "fall" theme. Good choice! And cheers to you for being sensitive and adapting to your bridesmaids! I’m sure they appreciate it!

I picked none of the above because I think you found the elusive Bridesmaid or Best Man dress that could work for ANY season! Kudos!! It’s lovely! Go with whatever season your wedding is in because it is truly perfect. And if it’s a winter season, a nice pashmina wrap will take care of that.

more delecate fabric just makes it more formal if accesorized properly. could you get some wraps in a chenille or something thick?

It’s funny cause I didn’t even read your blog until after I voted and I said it looked fall like. You know it really doesn’t matter I am having black and red for my colors and mine is May 30. It is all what you want!

I think you are imagining the problem. Unless is was a cotton sundress, I can’t think of many dresses that are only for a particular season- it’s the color that makes it appropriate to the season.

I think color is what makes it "seasonal." I think it will look gorgeously fall.

I think you can have whatever you want, its your wedding. We’re getting married in October and our colors are black and pool, which is like a seafoam green. My girls are wearing knee length dresses that could totally go more with a spring or summer wedding, but I think the color will be a nice contrast to the fall colors all around us. I think the dress you picked out looks great and will be wonderful in your wedding. Do what you want regardless of what season it is outside

MrsSl82be: I like your advice and glad to hear that you are having colors that are not conventionally with the season.
We originally planned to get married in August and selected light blue as our accent color (I’m not into a matchy color-scheme so it will basically be lightblue for some things). Now we’ve had to move our wedding back a month to September, I agree the contrast between the fall background is my rationale for keeping our colors!
To Original Post: I agree with previous posts that colors coordinate with season more to me than style of dress. Regardless, you selected a lovely dress!

Thank all of you ladies for the advice! I guess i was right in thinking that it is all in my head . The flowy pro-pregnancy dress it is! Thanks again for keeping me sane,
