Merlot, Port, Pinot Noir—these aren't wine offerings to consider for your cocktail hour. These are beautiful hues of burgundy bridesmaid dresses. This deep and daring color choice is as close to red wine as your wedding dress will get on the big day.
Burgundy is a spectacular shade for a fall or winter wedding and complements a jewel tone palette. This vivid color will make a stunning statement as your bridesmaids dot down the aisle and accentuate the backdrop of your wedding photos.
And burgundy works for summer weddings, too. In the right fabric and style a burgundy bridesmaid dress can easily push your squad to standout-status amid a sea of pinks and pastels traditionally seen during the season. To bring this rich color into a summer palette, incorporate emblematic seasonal flowers and hues. A fun print or color-block pattern can also help transition burgundy to summer. If you have your heart set on the mismatched bridesmaids look, you can mix in softer colors, like a dusty rose, to bring a lighter feel to your burgundy dresses. Also save thick, heavy fabrics like jacquard for winter weddings and look to dresses with lots of movement for an airier feel.
While burgundy is a bold hue, it flatters a variety of skin tones. It's also got versatility written all over it; it can work for a bohemian-themed wedding as well as an elegant black-tie affair. Whether your bridal aesthetic is chic or whimsical, there is a burgundy-hued bridesmaid dress that will complement your style and look great on your favorite gal pals.
