10/10/2017  |  Burgundy Marsala Wedding Inspiration

Marsala and Burgundy colours are a huge trend in the wedding industry right now, especially for autumn and winter weddings. Here at SP we've put together a few ways you could incorporate this plumy luxury colour into your wedding day!

The Dress

Whilst you might decide to keep to the usual white or ivory wedding dress, you can explore bright or bold colour with your bridesmaid and flower girl attire. From the dresses themselves, to a gorgeous flower grown.


The Stationery

Adding a touch of your main wedding colour to your 'saves the date' or your formal invites sets the tone and style of what they will see on the big day. This might even impact what your wedding guests choose to wear on the day too. We love match these with a touch of gold to give it a classy luxury feel. 



Adding a flash of deep reds and burgundy to your wedding tables, seating plan or even hanging flowers from the ceiling can all tie in the colour theme you are looking for, this could even add in accent colours like cream, golds, or greens. Taking the colour one step further could be having a red velvet cake instead of your typical cream sponge.




Instead of using fresh flowers, why not opt for dried wedding flowers for your bouquet, buttonholes and even table centres. As the flowers are dried they will last for much longer than fresh flowers meaning you can keep them well after the big day and they still look gorgeous and smell devine.


Finishing Touches

Our favourite part of a good wedding is the finishing touches, the fun bits that everyone can enjoy! If you're looking for a way of incorporating your chosen colour palette into your wedding, what better way to do it than with your confetti?

You can pick and mix your favourite petals to match to your wedding colours, we love our Timeless Elegance mix or even our Moulin Rouge confetti mix. They both have a touch of marsala plum in them which look great when thrown over the newly married couple, or scattered around the venue as gorgeous petal decoration.



We are seeing a huge trend at the moment for wedding arches. A classy way to add a spot of colour to your arch could be to drape material over the top and pin into place with flowers over the top. Just remember you don't need to make it symmetrical, and you can always use your arch after the ceremony as a photo area background so your guests can get a piece of the action too.
