Choosing a burgundy colour scheme for your wedding is a sophisticated and timeless choice that adds a touch of elegance and warmth to your special day. This rich, deep hue can be incorporated into various elements of your wedding, creating a sense of opulence and warmth that is both timeless and on-trend.


Burgundy pairs exceptionally well with neutral tones such as gold, cream, or blush, creating a luxurious and romantic ambience, and for a darker look pair it with charcoal and black tones. Consider using the colour in tablecloths or table runners to anchor your reception tables. Add gold accents, such as candle holders or cutlery, to enhance the overall opulence. For centrepieces, opt for arrangements that feature deep red roses, dahlias, or peonies, creating a striking focal point.


When it comes to bridesmaids' dresses, burgundy is a flattering and versatile choice. And while traditionally it was considered a colour for the winter and fall, more and more couples are incorporating this rich jewel tone into their spring and summer celebrations through their bridesmaids! Whether you opt for floor length or knee high, in velvet, silk or satin, this colour suits various styles and body types. Your bridesmaids will undoubtedly appreciate the timeless elegance of burgundy.


Details matter, and incorporating burgundy into smaller elements of your wedding can tie everything together seamlessly. Consider incorporating the colour into your stationery suite, such as invitations with gold accents or wax seals. Personalized touches, like burgundy ribbons around napkins or velvet ring boxes, add a sense of cohesion and sophistication. Flowers play a crucial role in any wedding, and a rich wine colour scheme allows for a myriad of stunning floral choices. Incorporate deep red blooms into your bouquet, such as dark red calla lilies or wine-coloured ranunculus. Complement these with softer shades like blush or ivory to add depth and contrast.
