Red is the color of romance, so it's only natural that brides would gravitate towards this show-stopping shade when choosing big-day attire for their bridal parties. No matter which color your prefer—whether it's scarlet, garnet, or fire engine—red bridesmaids' dresses are a beautiful, flattering choice that's adaptable to any season or style. Plus, dressing your bridesmaids in such a statement color ensures they won't blend into the crowd.
Versatile, eye-catching, and totally re-wearable (seriously, a red dress can be worn again at nearly any formal occasion), red is a unique choice for bridesmaids' dresses and results in looks that feel fitting any time of year. If you're going for a more classic aesthetic, so many designers offer timeless A-line options with comfortable, flattering straps. Summer brides might gravitate more towards the light and airy numbers like a V-neck wrap dress or a backless gown with spaghetti straps, which look great and keep attendants comfortable. If you're tying the knot during the fall, you may prefer to dress your 'maids in something with sleeves and in a deeper, moodier shade of red.
Whether you're looking for something sexy or sweet, long or short, bold or subdued, you're bound to find a red bridesmaids' dress that fits the bill—and fits your group's specific budget. And since so many retailers offer red formal dresses and gowns, you could even confidently allow your group to select their own looks. Just give them an idea of what your ideal style would look like and let them shop on their own.
