I cannot pick between wine red and blue bridesmaid dresses! I plan for the main wedding colors to be dark blue, light blue, burgundy

Wedding: October in Atlanta (fingers crossed!!!!) overlooking the woods. Early October in Atl = Could be super fall gorgeous, could be practically summer.
Red Dress Reasoning:*Wine red dresses, guys in dark blue suits with matching red ties-it’s beautiful, I’m just drawn to it. -feels more fallish-bridesmaids feel they would look better in it-but does it feel über patriotic??
Blue Reasoning:*blue bridesmaid dress, grey suits with blue accents or maybe dark blue suits with grey and light blue accents-my favorite color is light blue, his is dark blue-Light blue/dark blue were our high school colors where we met- Bridesmaids are also good with wearing blue- Not patriotic?-more chill?-should I just ditch red from the color scheme??
Please tell me what you think!!Burgundy and Blue or Dark and Light Blue? 1

    I think the burgundy and navy looks better for fall.

    You can do blue attire and burgundy flowers. Just a thought!

    I personally LOVE the dark blue dresses with the gray suits (the photo on the top right). I agree that the burgundy dresses with the navy suits looks a bit too patriotic looking, unless you're into that. But I think having burgundy flowers would not be too much at all!

    I personally really like burgundy and blue. That was my 2nd choice color scheme behind burgundy and Olive Smiley smile

    I had this same dilemma, but eventually landed on burgundy and navy ... so that’s my vote. My fiancé actually made the final decision because I was in between navy, burgundy and gray too. Lol! In my wedding, the ladies will wear burgundy dresses and the men will wear navy tuxes. You can avoid the patriotic look by picking a darker burgundy (like Cabernet, my color). I don’t think it looks patriotic at all since that color is much darker than a standard red. Whatever you decide, you can’t go wrong! Good luck!

    I love both, but prefer the light/dark blue more. It's personal for you both. Plus, I feel it's a more unique combo. I think the dark & moody blue palette is also perfect for fall!

    I would pick burgundy and navy I love the dark color tones. Both light and navy would both look good with the burgundy so thats a tough one. Good luck!

    Burgundy and Navy were my first color choice before I recently changed it to a blue/grey color with sunflowers (due to date change)
    But my original date was going to be this fall, now it’s next spring.
    I personally love the burgundy/wine color but I do see what you mean about patriotic, especially lined up for photos. I think my mind would’ve never went there though unless you said you were having a July wedding.Either one would be gorgeous though, and you could always incorporate pops of burgundy with your flowers! 😊
