Rich and romantic burgundy is one of the most popular colors for wedding palettes. Brides gravitate to the intense jewel tone for its beauty, intensity, and versatility. It can work for any season; Spring through Winter. And, this color selection lends itself to any style wedding from edgy, industrial-chic wedding styles to earthy outdoor ceremonies. Since this hue provides a dramatic focal point for any and all of the details from florals to decor, we’ve rounded up some burgundy inspired options. You can set the tone for your wedding before it even happens by the style and color of your invitations. Give your guests a taste of wine (lol) with these amazing invites by Funky Olive.
