Getting right to it! Even though we see this shade of Cranberry-Red-Burgundy during mostly the winter months, we really love it for any season. So we put a few collages together with spring bridesmaid bouquets and strappy sandals. If you LOVE this rich and elegant color as much as we do, here’s how to make it work in the warmer weather.
Choosing this color Cranberry-Red/Burgundy for your fall-winter bridesmaid dresses automatically sets the tone of traditional elegance for your wedding. We’ve used mostly the traditional style of dress for this article, but we’ll write again about this beautiful Burgundy and how you can get creative with it, and change up the “feel” of your wedding just by the style of dress you choose.
Gorgeous Burgundy J. Crew in chiffon with a gladiator Stuart Weitzman strappy sandal is so beautiful and on trend for a contemporary elegant wedding.
Changing up the fabric a bit with this J.Crew bridesmaid dress … Choosing your bridesmaid dresses in Silk Duponi really elevates the elegance and accentuates the detail in the folds of fabric in the dress design. We’ve paired this look with a soft peony bouquet to mirror the soft folds of fabric in the dress style.
Going with a “flatter” fabric and “cleaner” design in this J. Crew dress allows for a bolder pop of color in the bridesmaid shoe choice. Keeping the shoe also in a “flat” color and design allows for heavy texture in the choice of florals for your bridesmaids bouquet. The texture and pop of color in the bouquet accessorizes this bridesmaid look perfectly.
Are you trying to create a more romantic look for your wedding? Simply choose a dress with a sweetheart neckline and stylize it up a bit with an elegant Badgley Mischka peep toe pump, Choosing a bridesmaid shoe in a coordinating color gives the ensemble anchor and allows for more texture in the bridesmaid bouquet. To keep the romance going with this bridesmaid “look” we have paired it with a muted mixed peony and rose bouquet. Another way to add instant romance to your wedding is to keep the florals soft in texture, and pale in color.
Changing it up a bit! Let’s move onto Rustic-Country-Elegance. Bringing back Style, Inspiration, & Design’s site visitor’s favorite J.Crew dress, we add a Turbulence Gray cowboy boot with burgundy detail. The elegance of the chiffon bridesmaid dress against the rustic cowboy boot for the bridesmaid adds great contrast in the look. Keeping the dress and the “shoe” in just 2 colors (Burgundy and Gray) allows for the extra texture in this country-style bouquet.
Same Burgundy bridesmaid dress, same Turbulence-Gray cowboy boot… to illustrate how easy it is too change the mood with bridesmaid bouquets and florals, we added a soft romantic bouquet to this look. It really gives a beautiful contrast to the look and bridges the Rustic-Country with Traditional Elegance for a beautiful Country-wedding.
One more example of how a simple change to a bridesmaid’s accessory can change the look (and feel) of your wedding…
Same dress, and back to the pretty country-style bouquet. The rustic choice of this cowboy boot in a muted antique brown gives anchor to this bridesmaid’s look. It will keep the eye on the bridesmaid bouquet and allow for the florals to be the focus. (and the bride of course!!)
