What’s not to love about an autumn wedding? It’s no wonder many couples choose this time of year for their big day.

The leaves are turning those incredible shades of orange and yellow, the light is getting softer, the hot summer months have passed, and everyone has that post-summer glow. With so much natural beauty to inspire the colour scheme, earthy tones have always been a traditional choice.

In 2015, we’re seeing many brides opt for a twist on the old favourites with bolder colour choices for their bridesmaid dresses or mixing it up with their choice of flowers or accessories, so we’re sharing our favourite shades from twobirds Bridesmaid for autumn bridesmaids to inspire you…

Go bold!

Bright jewel tones are a great choice for that time of year. Rich, warm shades of plum and vibrant burnt orange are some of the more traditional choices and we can see why!

For something a little different, why not consider royal blue or sapphire to really pop against an autumnal backdrop. Pair these colours with gold accessories and pale flowers or add in shoes or a chunky bracelet in a complementary colour to make a statement.


Work the industrial glam trend

Grey bridesmaid dresses have been a huge trend this year, and it looks set to continue well into the latter half of 2015. It’s definitely a step away from the traditional palette, but silvery greys look gorgeous all year round and charcoal is well suited to the colder months. Ask your florist to incorporate some eucalyptus or thistles into the bouquets for a contemporary look.


Keep it classic

Neutral colours are timeless and oyster, taupe and mocha are the autumnal take on the classic. A warm neutral palette allows a lot of freedom with your choice of flowers and accessories and you could even mix and match them for an on-trend look.

Keep the make-up simple and elegant with a subtle smokey eye and a nude lip, and you could add some texture into your bouquets with some deep green foliage, berries and the palest cream blooms.
