Choosing a color palette is one of the first steps in planning a wedding, and many brides and grooms choose one based on the season in which they plan to get married.

Planning to say I do in the fall?

There are lots of colors that work for a fall wedding, but there’s one that we absolutely love:

Burgundy.

Call it “burgundy,” “maroon,” “marsala,” or “wine,” this color is rich, versatile, and easy to mix and match with other hues. It’s always a winner!

If you’re thinking of making burgundy your wedding color, we’ve got some bridal inspo coming your way.  

Here are some elegant burgundy bridesmaid dresses for fall that you’re sure to love, plus some other ways to incorporate the color into your wedding day.


Burgundy Is Super Versatile

One of the many reasons we love burgundy bridesmaid dresses is that this color flatters every skin tone. It’s a color that anyone can wear, and it works for any type of wedding celebration, no matter your style or theme.

Throwing a rustic or boho celebration?

A burgundy evening dress with ruffles is the perfect choice!

Planning a modern, minimalist event or a vintage Edwardian wedding?

Burgundy works whether you choose a high neck gown, a one-shoulder silhouette, a V-neck A-line gown, or a classic wrap dress.


… and You Can Mix and Match It With Other Colors

Another thing that makes burgundy such a great option for a fall wedding is that it’s easy to mix and match with other colors. It pairs beautifully with shades of blue, purple, orange, gold, and blush pink, so it’s a fantastic complement to a variety of different wedding themes and color schemes.

Burgundy also looks luxe in every fabric. Go with burgundy chiffon for a more casual look, or choose a burgundy satin dress for a glitzy, glamorous look.

Having a wedding in the late fall when the weather might be cold?

Burgundy velvet is the way to go!
