Marsala Moment! Marsala Wedding Inspiration

In case you missed it, the experts at Pantone chose an earthy wine red as their colour of the year - Marsala.

The deep romantic colour is perfect for a wedding, especially an autumn or winter wedding thank to its deep, warm tones. Warm metallics are the perfect tones to compliment marsala, think colours like gold, the pinker hues of rose gold and copper. It can also work for a spring or summer wedding when teamed with ivory or white, or given a more summery feel with shades of yellow or orange.

You can incorporate marsala in any part of your wedding day, from your wedding dress to your wedding cake. You could add a hint of marsala to your floral arrangements, or have a wedding ring with a marsala toned gemstone. If you're brave enough to go for a marsala shade gown your choice of dress may be limited, but you might be more lucky when it comes to your bridesmaid gowns. The possibilities are endless!

For a traditional venue such as a hotel or a castle think about pairing marsala with metallic accents – maybe pair a marsala napkin with a gold napkin ring, or a table with copper coloured candelabras. Use luxury fabrics like silks, satins and brushed cottons to decorate your venue for a super elegant feel. If you are having more rustic wedding celebration you can tone it down with more rustic materials like dyes sackcloth or paper decorations.

Finishing touches will always be key to tying a theme together, so take a look at these ideas (and you will find more on our Pinterest page).
