Burgundy Wedding Color Scheme
When it comes to selecting a hue or shade of red for your wedding day, the options are endless. So, why burgundy? This elegant color comes straight from wine country. It makes the perfect statement color for any palette and exudes modern luxury. Whether your wedding is luxe or casual, it is a classic choice. Since it’s a darker color, it also complements every skin tone! So, you won’t have to worry about any of your bridesmaids looking washed out.
How to Style Burgundy Bridesmaid Dresses
Highly versatile, burgundy can be paired with a wide range of colors. Although often associated with fall weddings, it is suitable year round. For warm-weather seasons, create a bright palette using white, southern blue, blush, and silver accents. During cooler months, opt for a more edgy palette. Consider pairing burgundy with earth tones, like rust, mustard, and pine. If you prefer a more traditional look, stick with burgundy, rose gold and neutral tones.
When it comes to your bridal party’s look, use the metallic accent color of your choice for their jewelry. For shoes, a neutral tone tends to look amazing. (This can be along the lines of nude or brown.) As far as matching your groom and his groomsmen, it's a piece of cake. When you buy from Kennedy Blue, we offer matching accessories that take all the guesswork out of online shopping. Check out our stylish burgundy ties and bowties, like this dapper Striped Silk Tie.
