Burgundy and Gold

Burgundy is easily one of my favorite colors to use in a winter wedding. It’s striking, it’s dramatic, and it’s glamorous. 

This wedding theme is all about drama- so make sure you really commit to your colors.  Bridal party should be in burgundy, and for a wedding dress, use a showstopper from Lazaro or Pnina Tornai . For flowers, the deeper the shade the better. Play with the texture by juxtaposing the soft edges of black magic or baccara roses against more structural calla lilies and dahlias. Burgundy textured linens will look fabulous, especially with gold chargers, gold votives, and custom menus. Finally, wow your guests with a cake to remember. Like the menus, instead of using a white background, use deep red fondant with gold piping and pearls for a dessert that tastes as decadent as it looks.
