With fall weddings just around the corner we have burgundy on our minds. Burgundy is a fantastic choice for a wedding party color and, also, one of our most popular options for the “mother of”. It’s richness makes it naturally elegant and wedding like, and it’s deepness is flattering and sophisticated on women of all ages.

While it is a natural, seasonal choice for fall and winter weddings it can also make a unique choice for spring and summer especially when paired with lighter colors. Blush, pink and pale yellow are all colors that we love paired with burgundy for a summer color palette.

We just love seeing our burgundy evening gowns and cocktail dresses worn by mothers of the bride because, honestly, no other color contrasts so beautifully with a snow white or ivory bridal gown in photographs. Below we have included some burgundy options that will be perfect for your burgundy wedding.

This Organza Jacquard Shirtdress was one of our most popular mother of the bride styles in navy and we are so excited to have it in a gorgeous wine color just in time for fall. It can be worn through any season because of the nature of the style and the lightweight fabric and it is universally flattering on women of all ages and sizes. Available through size 22.

The Floral Applique Tulle Gown in wine is exquisite in its details from the rich, regal color to the intricately detailed flower embellishments. It’s a classic option that would look great on a mother of the bride or groom and is sure to stand the test of time when you look back on your photographs for years to come.

This stunning Stretch Taffeta Gown is perfectly draped and ruched along the bodice paired and with a flared skirt to create a fantastic slimming effect that will make you feel great. Its available in an array of colors but we have burgundy on our minds.

A chic take on a classic a-line silhouette, this all lace dress is an instant mother of the bride favorite. The beautiful lace is accented by scalloped detailing, creating a put together look that works well on every body type. The sheer 3/4 sleeves show just a touch of skin for a a look that exudes mystery and class.

We also love the elegant wine Stretch Velvet Portrait Collar Gown and the wine Organza Jacquard Printed Shirtdress (the cocktail version of the gown featured above). 

We also love burgundy on a junior bridesmaid or a flower girl. It’s bright enough for a child to match the adults without being too mature. Our girls Lace Dress with Floral Applique works well from toddler to pre-teen. (It also comes in pink and white which would both coordinate well with burgundy)
