Researching fall bridesmaid dresses and keep coming across burgundy gowns? While this color is an excellent pick for fall, we understand you probably want to see some other options. After all, every venue is different—and you probably want your bridesmaid dresses to complement the vibe perfectly.

Well, you're in the right place. We're showing you five stunning fall bridesmaid dresses. And guess what—they aren't red!

🧡 Five Fall Bridesmaid Dresses for Any Venue 🍁

Here are five fall bridesmaid dresses that are perfect for any venue—from outdoor woodland venues to indoor halls and restaurants.

1. For rustic weddings: orange satin dress

Deeper shades of red, orange, and yellow are great colors for fall bridesmaid dresses—especially if you're planning a rustic wedding (like at a barn, farm, or lodge).

Amongst the wood and changing colors of the leaves, these shades fit in beautifully. If you want to veer away from the classic burgundy red, a burnt orange (like sienna) would be our top pick. It looks great on all skin types and will bring out your gals' lingering summer tans.

Rustic weddings are usually more casual, so you can totally get away with a bridesmaid dress that has spaghetti straps and a high slit. What about the fabric? Well, because your wedding isn't in the scorching summer months, you can opt for any material. For this color, we love satin. It's so warm and luxurious!

2. For restaurant weddings: charcoal chiffon dress

Booking out a restaurant for your fall wedding? Then a dark neutral-colored bridesmaid dress would be a sleek choice!

Restaurant venues are very popular these days—especially if the wedding is an intimate affair (and you expect rain). Typically, the dress code is much like a formal dinner party. So you can choose something less traditional here.

As we enter the fall season, dark neutral colors, like black or gray, take over our wardrobes. So they're a natural fit for a fall bridesmaid dress! If your gals want a dress that's both warm and chic, look for high necklines or thicker materials. Jewel is always good choice to add some sparkles to the dress. (And it's easy on the eyes, too!)

3. For woodland weddings: sage chiffon dress

Oh, sage! We absolutely love this color for fall bridesmaid dresses. It's incredibly versatile for any venue, but we especially love it for woodland weddings.

You may be tempted to look for dark green dresses to match the trees and botanical decor. However, that shade would blend in too well with the background. This sage green fits in and stands out at the same time!

If you envision a whimsical vibe, your fall bridesmaid dress should feature dreamy details, like off-the-shoulder sleeves and drapey fabric like chiffon. Imagine the photos under the fairy lights at sunset! Gorgeous!

4. For mountain weddings: sapphire satin dress

Does your wedding venue sit atop a mountain and offer spectacular views? With blue skies on the horizon, we recommend sapphire for your fall bridesmaid dress!

Jewel tones are popular for fall bridesmaid dresses, but sapphire is particularly fitting if the sky is your backdrop. This color is also a great choice if your wedding is by the water. (And can we just say we're jealous that your fall weather is still warm!)

As we mentioned, satin is a luxurious fabric perfect for the cooler months. And it's not a fabric we get to wear every day, so your bridesmaids will be thrilled!

5. For estate/banquet hall weddings: mauve lace dress

Planning a formal wedding at a large estate or banquet hall? Then don't hold back on your fall bridesmaid dress! Find a gown that brings some sparkle.

This mauve dress is covered in lace and embellished with jewels and sequins. It also has a satin waistband. Not only is this super glam, but it also cinches the waist—and who doesn't love an hourglass shape?

Mauve is another popular color for bridesmaid dresses because it looks great on any skin tone and matches any color scheme and venue. So no matter what the decor is, this dress will fit right in.
