Deciding on what colour your bridesmaids are going to don for your wedding day is a fun but often tricky decision as there are so many lovely options. If you've been anywhere near Pinterest lately (guilty!) you've probably seen rust bridesmaid dresses popping up everywhere. 

This stylish hue falls between a coppery brown and a terracotta tinge with an array of undertones as well. For this reason it's a versatile choice for your bridesmaids as you can find a shade that is flattering across all skin tones. 

A rust bridesmaid dress is especially popular for an autumn wedding, however we've seen them appearing at celebrations for all seasons -  a rust orange bridesmaid dress would fit in perfectly for a warm wedding in the summer. 

Since rust dresses for a wedding are available in all sorts of styles, silhouettes and fabrics, they also make an excellent rust wedding guest dress. Our edit features a design for every occasion, whether you're part of the party or are attending as a guest.
