Marsala has been officially declared the color of 2015! You may have already noticed how this stylish tone has been present in several industries already during 2014: make-up products, apparel, fashion décor and furniture.
Earthy and deeply romantic, this shade is named after an Italian wine, which is a warm deep red, perfect for the winter season.
If you are looking for a sophisticated and bold theme for your weeding, then we have found the right color for you!
Marsala red is great with neutrals like grays and warm taupe. Also works well with amber, umber and golden yellows, greens in both turquoise and teal, as well as blues. Below are samples to help you with your color combinations:
As for organizing a wedding with a Marsala red inspiration, we think it combines very well with a wine, glamour, or vintage themed-wedding. Here are some ideas to help you through making the right choices.
Let’s talk about the invites. Marsala is a very stylish color and the invitations will definitely look very elegant with this choice. Choose the Marsala colors for the envelopes and keep the card designs as simple as possible or just add a dash of color to the designs.
You can also pick a dress for the maid of honor or bridesmaids in Marsala red or just simply incorporate the color in the bouquets. In that case, refer to the color palette to choose the right dress color for your maids. In the second picture, we have chosen a dress in silver pink.
One other idea is to pair the groom’s suit or his tie to the wedding color for a more vintage feel.
Now, moving forward to the most important piece for the bride: the wedding bouquet. You can either go rustic and choose a bouquet with different combinations of colors like red, purple and light pink or keep it simple by just combining Marsala with white flowers.
We suggest you dig in the season’s colors for inspiration. And since Marsala is the perfect color for winter, we recommend choosing this very wintery wedding bouquet. Simple yet elegant!
Regarding your make-up, we want to point out that Marsala red is very flattering on many skin tones. It is a statement color so you want to keep your accessories and make-up as simple as possible if you are going to apply this sultry shade to your lips.
For the table sets and centerpieces, Marsala is a perfect choice to bring richness to your wedding decorations. You can also match them with the bridal bouquet.
