20 Yellow Bridesmaid Dresses Perfect for a Late Summer or Fall Wedding

Are you considering yellow bridesmaid dresses? When narrowing in on a wedding color palette, bridesmaid dresses are a big piece of the puzzle. Of course, there are many factors that go into this decision far beyond the shades you just happen to love wearing on your own.

First, you want to think about the time of year you’re getting married — white is gorgeous year-round if that’s your taste while pastels are great for spring and summer and jewel tones for fall and winter. Next, you want to consider your wedding venue — is it outdoors among vibrant foliage? Perhaps oceanside? Will you be inside where there’s a lot of décor? You also want to think about hues that will best compliment your wedding dress, especially if you’re wearing a colored gown. Another way to come up with your ideal bridesmaid color palette is seasonal fashion trends and bright shades of yellow is one of the season’s top tints (that’s continuing to be big for Spring/Summer 2019, too).

From sunflower to marigold, mustard, turmeric, and daffodil, yellow bridesmaid dresses are everywhere for fall and winter — we have big-name designers like Carolina Herrera, Tibi, Brandon Maxwell, Rochas, and Kenzo to thank for this drift as each designer showed head-to-toe yellow looks on the runway from dresses to outerwear. On the heels of spring and summer where lighter shades of yellow reigned supreme, this punchier take is definitely bold, but a gorgeous and flattering color to consider for your bridesmaids despite being a hue that can feel scary to a lot of women.

Without question, electric shades of yellow aren’t the most romantic for a wedding, but warmer, golden shades are absolutely stunning, especially in the glow of a fall or winter sunset. And because the trendiness of yellow is only continuing for 2019 (see Oscar de la Renta, Escada, and Cushnie as a few prime examples), a range of brands from traditional bridal vendors to contemporary labels have a variety of beautiful silhouettes to choose from whether you’re looking for a gown with long or charming flutter-sleeves, or something modern like an asymmetrical midi or one-shoulder maxi. If you’re into a mixed bridesmaid palette, you can skip the single shade lineup and go for a fresher grouping that incorporates a few hues or even print.
