What color comes to mind when you think of burgundy?
Chances are my version of burgundy may be different than your version. Is it like a glass of Shiraz or more like Ron Burgundy’s suit in Anchorman? See what I mean? Burgundy can be a tricky color to match!
In reality, burgundy is not red, oxblood, or maroon. It is actually a shade lighter than the latter color. While both burgundy and maroon are deeper-red hues, maroon has slight tones of purple or brown. Regardless of what you consider to be “burgundy,” there is no denying that this rich color is absolutely stunning.
It is so versatile, perfectly embodying fall during autumn weddings, complementing the often glamorous tones of winter weddings, or being reminiscent of roses and the iconic Dahlia during spring and summer affairs.
The options for burgundy bridesmaid dresses are endless because this is one innately beautiful shade. Want to see for yourself? We’ve found twenty romantic burgundy bridesmaid dresses that are ideal for any affair.

With so many burgundy bridesmaid dress options, we’re sure you have a few questions.
What Should I Wear Under My Bridal Outfit?
Depending on the fit of your dress, you may need a backless bra, a body shaper, or possibly just some pasties. Some bridesmaid dresses are quite revealing, while others allow you to wear your standard undergarments.
It’s best to try the dress on with your undergarments to make sure there are no accidental peek-a-boos before the big day.
Who Pays For The Bridal Outfits?
Traditionally, the wedding party pays for their own outfits. Meaning that the bridesmaids pay for their dresses. However, some brides treat it as their “thank you” gift to their besties and treat the bridesmaids to gowns.
What Is The Most Comfortable Material For A Bridesmaid Dress?
Chiffon is probably the most comfortable and most popular material for a bridesmaid dress. It’s thick but breathable and flowy. Plus, it’s durable but with a flowy and ethereal look. Flattering for any figure, chiffon is one of the best bridesmaid dress fabrics.
How To Get The Most Flattering Figure With A Bridesmaid Dress?
It’s likely that each one of your bridesmaids has a slightly different figure. This is why we love the mix-and-match trend for bridal parties. Every one of your bridesmaids can wear burgundy, but maybe with a different dress design or silhouette.
This allows each person to find the dress that makes them feel most comfortable and confident.
