Burgundy Is This Year’s “It” Color For Wedding Season

If you’re looking to take your wedding’s color scheme to the next level, perhaps it’s time to consider a color that is a little outside of the box.

Particularly if you are getting married in the winter or the fall, you should consider incorporating pops of burgundy throughout your special day.

Of course black and white are the staple classic colors, but burgundy will help elevate your wedding to a unique and elegant level of decor.

The word “burgundy” hearkens back to the region in France, which is popular and well-known for its wine, hence the dark brownish red hue of the color.

So just why is this the color for your wedding? Well, let’s start with the fact that it has commonly been associated with royalty, and what bride doesn’t want to feel like a princess on her special day?

Sandy Hammer of the popular wedding planning online tool, AllSeated, weighs in in an interview with InStyle Magazine:

“The reason burgundy is so popular is that it goes with so many different looks and styles, be it vintage or classic. It’s warm for fall and absolutely perfect for the holidays.

It can be paired with lighter ivories and creams while also looking amazing with the richer colors like shades of purples and blues. Burgundy can also be paired with gold for a true regal look. And it never goes out of style.”

The color can be played up as a central one in your overall wedding’s color scheme, or can be used as a bold pop of color here and there for a dramatic effect.

It is an extremely flexible shade to work with, as it is simultaneously bold yet not overpowering, and can be paired with many other colors while retaining its elegant appeal.

The color can be used for men’s ties, incorporated in the floral arrangements, and even for the bridesmaids dresses. Consider the royal color for you upcoming nuptials!
