Burgundy Bridesmaid Dresses
It’s the last Wednesday of the month, which means it’s time for Dress to be WEDnesday! Since February is all about love, red and variations of red have been everywhere this month. I have been showing several red looks on Dress For The Wedding, so we’ll close out the month with one more! This month’s color is Burgundy or Wine, and KristynJennifer of KristynJennifer Events -LiveEventfully! has chosen it for a special reason. Her boyfriend’s sister is getting married soon and has selected this burgundy wine hue as one of her wedding colors. In honor of her, we present some burgundy wedding inspiration!
As usual, KristynJennifer and I have pinned some inspiring images on Pinterest. Be sure to follow Kristyn, and if you’re planning a Burgundy wedding too, check out this board filled with Burgundy ideas.
Burgundy is such a versatile color, and like wine, it has quite a range: it can go from a dusty dark purple, to a reddish-brown, or a deep,dark red. Personally, my favorite is when all of these are mixed together like in the bouquet of calla lilies above. To show the range of hues and dress styles available, here are 4 of my picks for bridesmaid dresses. If you haven’t discovered Weddington Way yet, head on over there; they show bridesmaids dresses by color which–for visual people like me– is such a helpful way to shop. 3 of the picks below are available through them!
Since I didn’t style a complete look like I often do, I’ve also included some other accessories that will carry this wine-colored theme through for the groom and groomsmen, and even the into invites and table decor. This color is a natural for a rustic or romantic themed wedding as well as anything with wine theme or winery venue as a backdrop. It can be accented with black, gold, silver, or a range of other deep reds.
