A rich burgundy color will give your special day even more solemnity and uniqueness. It is interesting that this shade can be used both as the main color and as an accent. So, for example, you can decorate a hall with a burgundy or cherry draping. But it is worth remembering that undiluted burgundy color can have a somewhat gloomy appearance, so add white or cream to the dark fabrics. Since the fabric of this color should not have strict lines and sharp transitions from color to color, it’s better to hire a professional to decorate the venue. Regarding the sweetheart table, note that a good kind of table will have a tablecloth of rich burgundy color, on top of which you can lay a table runner in one of the shades of white. Tables for guests may be decorated with cherry tablecloths, which will look amazing with white-washed napkins and dishes.

The concept of a burgundy wedding should also be supported by the bride and groom. If you are want to stun everyone with your personality and creativity, you can go with the burgundy wedding dress – it not only will look spectacular, but also will make a huge statement.

Floral part is very important for every celebration, and wedding in burgundy tones is, of course, not an exception. It is not a problem to find flowers in cherry and burgundy tones. Just do not forget to mix them with greenery and flowers in light pastel colors. The classic combination, as already mentioned above, is burgundy and white. For the bridal bouquet, you can choose roses, gerberas, dahlias or any other flowers of the appropriate color. Always start with the seasonal flowers in order to save your budget.

Wedding Accessories

Each, even the smallest detail of your future wedding should match the overall color scheme of your big day. Boutonnieres, invitations, seating cards, menus, and favors should be either cherry or burgundy color with additions of light shades. Important!
