It might not coincide with Pantone’s color of the year, but around here we’ve been noticing a lot of brides looking for burgundy bridesmaids gowns. It makes prefect sense. Burgundy is a deep rich color that looks good on everyone and is just as appropriate in a rustic outdoor setting as it is in a grand ballroom. It also may be a current trendy color, but it’s also a classic and timeless one. It looks elegant now, and when you look back at your wedding photos in ten years, it still will. Here are our top picks for burgundy dresses.
An Elegant Touch
This Watters gown in Marsala is a real show-stopper. The front is simple and elegant and the spaghetti straps add a delicate touch. It’s also a welcome surprise to find a bridesmaid gown that is more fitted. Most chiffon gowns tend to be flowy A-line silhouettes and so the fit of this gown makes it truly special. The real winner is the back though. The draping is gorgeous and sexy and might even want to make them wear it again.
Relaxed and Flowy
This Ruby colored gown from Amsale is light and delicate and both an easy color and easy style for anyone to wear. Unlike some halter neck gowns that either come up too high in the front or that have thick straps, this gown features spaghetti ties and a slouched front. That coupled with the free flowing ruffle skirt and tie waist make it flattering and easy to wear.
The Off the Shoulder
This luxe double knit garnet gown from Sorella Vita is perfect for the bride who wants her maids to rock the latest off the shoulder trend. The gown material is a velvety soft, slightly stretchy, jersey-like material making it stylish and comfortable.
