Let’s kick-start this theme off with your wedding outfit, and where to begin?! If you’re a modern bride who wants to ditch the traditional wedding dress, you could rock a pale blue gown? It will look absolutely stunning teamed with a statement burgundy bridal bouquet. If you’ve got your heart set on a white dress, incorporate this colour palette by wearing berry nails, a bold red lip or even a blue and burgundy flower crown. Glitzy Secrets will certainly spoil you with their collection of bridal accessories. Add your ‘something blue’ to your aisle style with their Waterfall of Love hair comb or don a pair of show-stopping Ruby Rebel earrings.
Your groom-to-be will look ultra-handsome in a simple navy suit with burgundy details, including tie, buttonhole and golden cufflinks. If he wants to make a fashion statement on his big day, burgundy velvet suits are a huge trend for 2018.
Your bridesmaids will look beautiful in an array of dusty blue gowns – perhaps opt for an ombré effect of navy to pale blue for an on-trend look that is still coordinated. Ask them to carry bouquets bursting with burgundy blooms and foliage.
When it comes to decorating your wedding venue, we suggest using an abundance of rich berry-inspired flowers, heaps of foliage and dusty blue details. Line your guest tables with soft blue runners with frayed edges for a ‘fine art’ feel. Fill antique gold vases with greenery and burgundy flowers – the gold will give your celebration a luxe vibe, adding to the glam factor!

Adorn a golden archway with foliage and flowers, draping a delicate dusty blue curtain for a truly elegant ceremony space. Not only will it feel incredibly special, it will look spectacular in your wedding photographs and can make your space completely unique to you both.
You can get very creative when it comes to a blue and burgundy wedding cake. We suggest displaying it on a gilded cake stand, particularly if you do plan on using lots of golden details throughout the rest of your day. You could opt for a three-tier masterpiece covered in dusty blue icing and decorated with blousy burgundy blooms. Alternatively, you could keep it simple and chic with a one-tier show-stopper with a blue or burgundy cake topper. The choice is yours, have fun and discuss your design with your cake maker and we’re sure they can come up with something that is the perfect fit for your big day.
It’s official, we are absolutely smitten with this darling wedding theme and we know you will be too!
