Burgundy Mother-of-the-Bride Dresses Ideal for Fall and Winter Weddings
There are plenty of reasons why a mom should considering wearing burgundy on her child's big day. It's bold and beautiful, but not as in-your-face as a scarlet red; it looks great at any time of year; it looks great on nearly everyone; and it's just as timeless and classic as black. Burgundy also encompasses many different gradient hues—from merlot and syrah to ruby and garnet. In short: This rich red color is a knockout in any and every form.
While burgundy is a beautiful color to wear throughout the year, it's an especially fitting choice for any celebration taking place during the colder months. That's why so many mothers of the bride and groom hunt for the perfect burgundy dress for their children's fall and winter weddings. To help you narrow down the sea of saturated styles on the market, we pulled together some of our favorite mother-of-the-bride (and -groom!) dresses in this bold hue.
Burgundy can manifest in many ways, from a super-rich velvet gown to an ethereal puff sleeve and corded lace cocktail dress. Timeless ladies might lean more towards lace V-neck gown or one with a flattering scoop neckline. Modern moms will likely lean towards a form-fitting sheath with a one-shoulder strap. No matter which burgundy dress you choose, you'll surely turn heads on your son or daughter's wedding day.
