You’ll soon realize brown is one of the most versatile and commonly overlooked colors. In fact, it’s full of rich, diverse tones and an indisputable “wow” factor.
What’s not to love?

1. Copper: Jenny Yoo Bridesmaid Dress Sylvie
This show-stopping super long bridesmaid dress by Jenny Yoo lives and breathes “Old Hollywood” glam. Think Elizabeth Taylor or Marilyn Monroe. It’s luxe satin with a cowl neck, and its full-length cut hugs all the right places.

3. Latte: Nouvelle Amsale Bridesmaid Dress Drew
This sleeveless chiffon bridesmaid dress from Amsale is flirty and fun. With a V-neckline and delicate ruffle, your bridesmaids will love that it features a tie at the waist and a mock wrap skirt.
We find it irresistible in this creamy, luxurious latte hue — a light taupe. This lovely, neutral shade of brown will offset the rest of your color palette beautifully. We recommend using it as a backdrop for gold, yellows, and greens.

It’s flowy and romantic. Your wedding party will snag everyone’s attention with this dress, complete with flutter sleeves and a V-neckline.

5. Deep Mocha: Bari Jay Bridesmaid Dress Style 2015
The backless cut is perfect for a more coiffed look with hair in a sleek updo or left loose and flowing to offset the mermaid vibes. Select it in “deep mocha” — a neutral with a slight caramel warmth that looks incredible with sandy neutrals and pastels.
6. Cocoa: Bari Jay Jumpsuit Bridesmaid Dress Style 2030
Check out this gorgeous cocoa jumpsuit from Bari Jay! It’s a stunning statement — gorgeously feminine — with draped off-the-shoulder sleeves and a bodice. The juxtaposition of that and the edginess of the pants make this look a bold and elegant choice.
The deep cocoa is irresistible when paired with jewel tones, soft coral shades and pinks, and other light-colored neutrals.
7. Sienna: Hayley Paige Occasions Bridesmaid Dress - 5906
This beautiful chiffon bridesmaid dress from Hayley Paige Occasions gives off ball gown vibes. The A-line gown has a curved strapless bodice that cinches in at the waist and a removable cape. This feature provides a touch of high-neck, old-world glam.
The design looks incredible in this sultry sienna tone. The color and style together create an irresistible vivacious combo. For a bold look, pair with a bright and colorful bouquet featuring vibrant yellow, orange, reds, and greens.
Soft creamy whites and blush pinks will do the trick for a more muted look.

9. Mahogany: Jenny Yoo LWD Dress Calla
If a goddess needed a cocktail dress, this Jenny Yoo dress is what she’d pick. Featuring an asymmetrical midi dress, your shoe-loving bridesmaids won’t know what to love more:
The ooh-la-la dress or a chance to show off a pair of strappy heels.
The one-shoulder neckline and soft pleated details bring pure elegance. With delicate details, including subtle ruching, it’s equally a formal dress and a party dress.
Basically, you can’t go wrong, especially when choosing the deep purply black mahogany color. It’s the perfect, classic, sophisticated color to highlight a remarkably dazzling dress.
Pair it with gold, eucalyptus, and sage green. Though honestly, it looks amazing with any color palette.
10. Toffee: Lovely LB008
This absolutely enchanting dress from Lovely would fit perfectly with an ethereal outdoor wedding. We’re talking about a forest wedding or a romantic indoor affair; think roses and warm, flickering candlelight.
This dress is an elegant statement with its long sleeves, a plunging V-neck neckline, and delicate shirring at the bodice. It also boasts an asymmetrical skirt that’s knee-length at the front.
The neutral warmth of the toffee color looks lovely with crimson and other fiery tones. But greens, yellows, and pale blues play off it nicely, too.

This full-length maxi dress from After Six, with flirty cap sleeves, a cinched waist, and — gasp — pockets, brings simple elegance. With a cut that flatters everyone, this dress will add some polish and refinement to any big day.
The gorgeous reddish brown of “auburn moon” adds a little fiery twist to the earthiness of brown. This dress would look really good with mustard and other yellows, oatmeal, and — of course — dusty pinks.
