Opt for classic bridal elegance by teaming a traditional white wedding dress with a stunning red lip or a pair of colour-popping heels that will look fabulous peeping out from under your gown. If you’re feeling particularly daring, you could always rock a burgundy gown for the evening reception. Add a dash of luxe to your bridal bouquet with a long, velvet ribbon in navy or burgundy. It will really help to set off the rest of the blooms in your bouquet. Don’t forget to browse through Glitzy Secrets’ collection of bridal accessories – the Moonlight Shimmer and Rebel Red range will be a wonderful fit for your aisle style.
Jewel-tone suits are set to stay in the spotlight, so your groom will look dapper in a navy or burgundy suit. He could even mix and match the jacket and trousers for a modern, on-trend look. Add a finishing touch with a berry-coloured bow tie and buttonhole.

Let’s talk about your team of ‘maids! Your best girls will be spoilt for choice when it comes to a navy and burgundy colour palette – why not let them choose which shade they’d like to wear? You could also ask a couple of them to wear lighter, dusty blue gowns for a little variety.
It’s time to think about how you can use your decorations and details to create a navy and burgundy wedding theme for Autumn. There are plenty of ways to transform your venue into a jewel-toned paradise. You can also use lots of golden accents for a hint of luxury. Gilded, antique-esque vases and urns overflowing with foliage, red blooms and berries will look incredible as table centrepieces or at the entrance of your wedding ceremony. Team with gilded candlesticks, vintage cutlery and charger plates so that everything matches. It’s the subtle touches of navy and burgundy that will tie your theme in together, such as burgundy napkins, navy ribbons tied around the stationery and even blue velvet chairs!
When it comes to Autumn wedding ideas, we can’t stop swooning over the thought of this sumptuous colour scheme.
