From deep and sultry to soft and romantic, burgundy bridesmaid dresses are a gown for all seasons. Most commonly worn during the autumn/winter, burgundy bridesmaid dresses will add drama and warmth to your wedding, and vibrancy and depth during spring/summer. They look good with oversized foliage bouquets, or delicate pink posies, and will complement, classic, rustic, woodland, and industrial themed weddings. With so many styles, and fabrics to choose from burgundy is the perfect hue for your flower girl right through to your maid of honour.


There's nothing more sophisticated than a floor-length gown. With fitted and flared designs to suit all body shapes. Just imagine your bridal party walking down the aisle and the gasps from your wedding guests. A little taster of what's to come when you make your grand entrance...

Short Burgundy Bridesmaid Dresses

If you're having a spring/summer wedding, then a short burgundy bridesmaid dress might be the best option to keep your bridesmaids cool. Choose loose-fitting styles to keep things light and airy, or an off the shoulder design to show off the tan they got on the hen do! Let's face it we're all a little braver, and more willing to expose a little more flesh when it's warmer.

Lace And Sparkle

We said it before and we'll say it again, we love lace and glitz! Whilst we'll always love a colour block dress, we also can't resist those little details that make a gown truly unique. I am yet to find a colour that doesn't look good using lace fabric. The same can be said for sparkly dresses. Georgie's bridal party scream Christmas in their sparkly top and high low skirt at her decadent winter wedding.


The simple exposure of bare shoulders instantly makes a classic item sassy and fun without being too overt. A halterneck bridesmaid dress is perfect for summer as it is, or winter with a contrasting cover-up. One thing you may want to consider is the underwear you wear with it. Listen to our bridal underwear Podcast to ensure full comfort whilst wearing this beautiful style.

Satin Burgundy Bridesmaid Dresses

As we've shown in our roundup there are so many fabric choices when it comes to shopping for your bridal party. But, if you're looking for a head-turning gown then you should definitely consider satin. Not only is it fast becoming one of the most popular choices, but its glamourous appeal will also mean you can wear it again and again. Hello, black-tie event!
