Let me introduce you to a daring new color trend, marsala. From haute couture runway shoes to statement lip colors, Pantone’s color of the year is making a statement in lifestyle, retail and bridal. If you’re as inspired as we are by this rich shade of wine, consider adding this color to make a bold statement at your wedding.
Coordinate your bridesmaids in this universally flattering shade of Bordeaux or pair marsala with a neutral tone such as mauve to add variety to your bridal party. Your bridesmaids will pop against urban and rural backgrounds as well as compliment the changing colors of fall.
Combine marsala with light, romantic colors to transition your florals from spring to fall. Incorporate coral, peach, blush or white to compliment Marsala’s bold, deep tone.
If you’re looking to make marsala a more subtle addition to your wedding, consider adding touches on your wedding cake such as floral accents, table setting or a signature cocktail.
