Looks like somewhere between chocolate brown and wine. Really hard to tell true colors in pics though.

I love that color and am getting my bridesmaid dresses in that color too!  I would call it a burgundy/wine/bordeaux, all of the designers have different names for that shade!

It appears to be a shade of burgundy. Some manufacturers may call it merlot, wine, etc. It’s definitely not brown since it has a red hue, which brown does not have.

Check with the manufacturer. No two dress manufacturers have the same name for similar colors. On the same token, dress designers will use the same color name and the color shades will not be anywhere near similar. Brides (not guests, bridesmaids or anyone else) tend to get hung up on the color name and don’t realize that you have to look at the shade itself from the designer you choose and not pay attention to anything else.
