If there’s one wedding color we don’t see going away anytime soon, it’s burgundy. The berry-hued, wine-inspired jewel tone beautifully pairs with a wide range of colors while providing a rich context for any wedding palette. With variations of gold, blue, and delicious autumnal shades, these burgundy color palettes will have you rethinking your wedding colors!

Burgundy, Dusty Blue, Marigold, Pumpkin

Allow the spirit of the harvest to dictate your wedding colors with vibrant and warm hues like marigold and pumpkin. When juxtaposed with a cool shade of dusty blue, your beloved burgundy really pops!

Burgundy, Dusty Gold, Ivory, Sage Green

If “romantic” and “natural” are guide words for your wedding design, look no further than this burgundy color palette complemented by dusty gold, ivory, and sage green. The Merlot-color steals the show when accompanied by a beautiful backdrop of almost-neutrals.

Burgundy, Rose, Crimson, Blush

While burgundy pairs effortlessly with competing colors, we can’t help but love a semi-monochromatic approach! This combination of burgundy, rose, crimson, and blush is equal parts feminine and bold, as it commits to developing its color story from a single hue. Plus, how gorgeous is that rose-colored stationery!
