8 Beautiful Wedding Color Ideas In Shades of Red, Wine and Burgundy

We know many different shades of red, the classic red, burgundy, claret, dark red, maroon, marsala, wine, etc. Many brides-to-be who choose red for their wedding colors will prefer a darker red instead of the traditional red, such as burgundy, which I think was the wedding color of 2017 and it’s just getting stronger for 2018. Besides burgundy, wine and marsala are also frequently incorporated in wedding decoration. If you are planning to have some shades of red in your wedding, we have 7 awesome red shade color ideas to inspire you. Enjoy!

1. Marsala, Taupe Neutral Shades

This color combo works because it lets Marsala be the shining star!  You can’t help but look at it when paired with the other tones…but don’t think those other colors aren’t needed because they are…they are the backdrop to the starlet and really let her shine!

2.Red, Peach and Greenery

Wait…red and PEACH?  YES…red and peach!  This is SO pretty when paired together because it is just so unexpected!  The peach serves as a pink and we all know how well red and pink work together, so there you have it!  And the greenery ties all this together to make this unlikely combo a match made in heaven.
