Rich, warm, and earthy, terracotta bridesmaid dresses scream fall wedding vibes. They reflect the soft glow of the season — think: changing leaves, autumn sunsets, and rustic touches — without falling into cheesy pumpkin-inspired territory. Perfect for modern autumnal nuptials!

But, with so many different shades (from light peach to rusty brown), terracotta would also make a statement for any season.

If you’re looking to add a natural bohemian touch to your summer “I do’s,” soft + light terracotta bridesmaid dresses will do the job. And for glam winter weddings, velvet terracotta gowns are impossible not to fall in love with!

No matter which shade and style you choose, you can also make these gowns work for your wedding season with a few strategic accessories. Speaking of which…

SO versatile, terracotta bridesmaid dresses can be styled in endless ways — but we love pairing them with gold accessories and boho pieces to bring out their unique shine and warmth. We’re talking dainty gold necklaces, rad booties, and dried floral bouquets!

How you style your terracotta gowns will also depend on the season. For outdoor fall celebrations, pair them with black leather jackets and a bold lip for a rad, edgy look.

If you’re getting married in the warmer months, keep things simple with classic gold earrings and nude heels. And, for winter affairs, add some glam with sparkly jewelry (we love birthstone necklaces for a personal touch and a great bridal party gift!).
