Burgundy Bridesmaid Dresses & Maroon Bridesmaid Dresses

You’d be forgiven for assuming that burgundy bridesmaid dresses are solely reserved for winter. It is, after all, a darker hue that dominates cold-weather wardrobes — as well as festive season ‘fits. But with a keen eye on emerging wedding trends, we’ve noticed that maroon bridesmaid dresses are a favourite with brides (and their bridal party) no matter what time of year you choose to say ‘I do’.

By now, we know that bridesmaid dresses come in a multitude of colours; black, white, grey, sage green, gold. . . the list goes on. As well as a myriad of styles and fabrics. Think: multiway, silk, satin, ruffle, empire waist, cowl neck and chiffon bridesmaid dresses. Whatever style you choose, there’s just something about the rich depth of burgundy that creates an elegant and timeless look for your ‘maids to emulate on the big day.

In contrast to other shades of red, burgundy broadens your horizon of complementary hues. Brighter reds make great pops of colour, but they can clash with a lot of other tones. As burgundy is darker and with undertones of purple, it’s likely to slot in more easily with the rest of your theme.

Burgundy looks relaxed with a palette of gold, cream and neutrals for a county-style ceremony on a summer’s day. . . Mixed with rust and pumpkin, it’s ideal in the autumn… Opt for the addition of black and silver for more formal weddings during winter months… Then pair it with pink and blush colours for a fresh spring scheme. We told you it was versatile.

So, which are the burgundy bridesmaid dresses we rate? ASOS’s range of wedding party dresses is epic, as always. Need proof? Their satin ruched halter neck maxi dress would be a stunning choice.

Elsewhere, Reformation’s best selling velvet dress would look beautiful against candlelight, while Molly Goddard’s tulle maxi dress — though not a traditional bridesmaid dress — would be a fashion-forward choice if you have the budget to spend on designer. On the high street, & Other Stories’ mini slip dress with spaghetti straps encourages you to move away from occasion dresses and choose something they’ll wear again.
