Today we’re dreaming of cosy autumn and winter weddings, of luxurious décor, rich colours and dining by candlelight.

At this time of year, deep reds and burgundies come in to play, looking dramatic on their own or combining beautifully with other jewelled shades and metallics. If you’re exploring a burgundy wedding theme, we hope these ideas will inspire and delight!

Table Décor

Introducing your burgundy wedding ideas to the table settings is the next step. With such a strong colour, you can be subtle while still making an impact.
