From bold cherry to deep bordeaux, red bridesmaid dresses offer a variety of shades and styles perfect for any wedding!

Red — the color of love — couldn't be more perfect for your bridal party. Inherently romantic, this vibrant hue is a classic choice for your wedding and your bridesmaids can choose from plenty of shades. Plus, what woman doesn't love to have a little red dress at her disposal?

Bolder brides may opt for a fire-engine or cherry hue, while more sultry soirées call for a deep burgundy or cabernet shade. Whether you want a color that has some purple undercurrents like the trendy marsala and bordeaux, or opt for something a bit brighter like a berry or apple tone, there are so many ways to spin a red bridal party.

Of course, like any bridesmaid dress shade, there's a good number of style options too — from Jenny Yoo's ruffled one-shoulder dress, to David's Bridal's off-the-shoulder knee skimmer, J.Crew's eye-popping lace sheath, and Noir by Lazaro's mikado gown with a peplum bodice and trumpet skirt. The best part about red, though, is that it complements a variety of skin tones, making it an easy choice for any group of girls!

One thing to remember: If you choose to dress your girls in red, keep your wedding color palette more neutral. Your 'maids will look bold enough that you won't want to overshadow them or create an environment that's too loud.
