I had a recent custom color request to change one of my designs to use burgundy instead of navy blue with one of my gray and white damask wedding invitations. That led me to do some searches online for burgundy and grey wedding color schemes, which led to me falling in love with those colors for a wedding, especially a late summer, fall or winter wedding.
I think the deep burgundy wine color, paired with charcoal grey and white is such a clean and crisp, sophisticated look with lots of good kind of drama. I love the look of the sharkskin gray men’s suits with burgundy ties and of course, argyle socks in burgundy and gray. I’ve even seen the groomsmen in burgundy suits with the bridesmaids in dark pewter grey bridesmaids dresses with burgundy floral bouquets and that looks great, too.
I designed this new burgundy wine and charcoal grey wedding invitation suite with modern elegance and sophistication in mind. The design uses a dark grey and white damask pattern that is always in style for a wedding. The main feature is the PRINTED ON deep burgundy wine ribbon and bow that sits near the bottom of the wedding invitation, or near the top of the mini calendar save the date card. There is a romantic simulated (printed on) burgundy glitter and jewel joined hearts accent in the middle of the bow. The area below the ribbon is a dark charcoal gray with white script writing that says: “This day, I will marry my best friend, the one I live for, laugh with, dream with, love”. The wording can say whatever you want as long as it will fit in the space. The main wording area is white with the wedding details printed in gray and burgundy. I’ve also added four burgundy corner flourishes and a small scroll divider to add a bit more oomph to the design.
Some people may also call the shade of burgundy I’ve used marsala, but that is more to do with Marsala wine than with the Pantone color of the year for 2015 also called Marsala, but which is more of a coppery brown shade than what I would call burgundy.
I’ve carried the printed on ribbon around to the backs of the invitation, RSVP card and Save the Date card because I like how that looks. I’m happy to add any additional wording to the backs of any of the pieces of this wedding suite, and a photo could also be added to the back of the invitation or the mini calendar save the date card if you would like to have that.
I came across a great DIY centerpiece tutorial for a pretty elegant looking burgundy floral centerpiece. I would look for planters that were the shape and size I wanted and then if they weren’t a nice silver or pewter already, I would spray paint them to go with my theme. So simple and yet so stylish!
One of the other great things about using burgundy in your wedding is how many shades of burgundy, maroon, and marsala there are that all work together, and they all look so great with shades of silver and grey. Succulents also look gorgeous with burgundy shades too, so adding them to centerpieces and bouquets can warm things up a bit if you find the burgundy and gray wedding color theme a bit on the cool side. Personally, I think it has such a contemporary, sophisticated look that it would work for many different weddings and budgets.
