Classic, elegant, flattering for those skin tones and not dates - consider the burgundy bridesmaid dresses shown above at real weddings by FeelTimes and that we think you'll agree.

Burgundy (or possibly think of it as claret, merlot, or deep red) is a shade that appears good on blondes, brunettes, girls with fair skin and freckles, and some women with darker skins.

Match it with lighter pinks inside your bouquets and greens plus you've got a really beautiful wedding theme happening. (Take a look at our Burgundy wedding theme ideas for inspiration).

Your little flower girls are likely to feel very developed wearing this shade and when you don't want black color, then match a feeltimes flower girl dress in white or cream having a burgundy sash. Very sophisticated for any little lady.

As for the bridesmaids - the toughest part will probably be choosing which style. We're loving the mismatched bridesmaid gowns this bride chose. (Bet her friends loved having individual styles too).

Sequins are on-trend just now and when you're through an evening wedding and wish your bridesmaids in something just a little slinky, then these burgundy sequin bridesmaid gowns would look completely fabulous. Choose either strapless, spaghetti-strapped, or possibly opt for burgundy sequin bridesmaid separates?

And if a person of your friends has announced being pregnant you'll find burgundy maternity bridesmaid gowns here. They're so flattering and pretty for girls in waiting!

Sometimes it's difficult to decide whether your girls should wear long or short bridesmaid gowns. It depends upon your style of the big day. If you're married earlier within the day and it is hot, a short dress might be perfect. Short cocktail-style bridesmaid gowns also look sassy at evening weddings if you are having a buffet-style event as opposed to a formal take-a-seated dinner. The best thing to complete is to take a look at plenty of different styles and get your girls the things they think.

We're big fans of dressing your bridesmaids in individual styles because every girl includes a different shape and different styles will flatter (and disguise). So some of the girls may be happier wearing a burgundy bridesmaid dress with sleeves whilst another medication is happy in strapless or spaghetti straps.
