Watch out 2017! Burgundy and Navy are Taking Over the Wedding Scene!
A few years ago we saw a small comeback with brides requesting burgundy and Marsala colors for their wedding flowers. Well so far, 2017 has been the year of burgundy and navy and we couldn’t be happier! These deep hues add so much richness and drama, and when paired with navy suits you can’t go wrong! These colors can be dressed up and compliment the most extravagant of venues, as well as work beautifully with rustic themes as well.
We’ve had the pleasure of working with various wedding vendors in the Milwaukee area on styled shoots, so when it comes to burgundy, we have you covered! Below are some of our favorites!

When incorporating these colors, it’s important to know what flowers are available. For example, if you are wanting Dahlias, it will be close to impossible to get them towards the end of November through May. Peonies are another one that we get asked about often. They do come in burgundy, and we are able to get them starting in January and can get them in for most of the summer. Again, depending on how Mother Nature is feeling we can’t always promise that she will cooperate. You best bet for anything burgundy all year round will be roses. We can get the mini spray roses in a burgundy color, and we can also get the full size ones in as well. The full size come in 2 colors, Black Magic, and Black Baccara; with the latter of the 2 being the darkest to give you the moodiest of looks. You can also incorporate various berries, orchids, and ranunculus. We’ve also done beautiful wraps with burgundy satin ribbon if you aren’t digging some of your flower options.
When incorporating navy into your wedding flowers, you can never go wrong with berries or sprayed seeded eucalyptus for a more affordable option. Vibrunum is always gorgeous, but not always in season. If you are ok with adding some blue hues naturally and aren’t crazy about berries, blue thistle is always a winner. Wrapping your bouquet or boutonniere in navy will also complement any piece. And of course, any of the above flowers will look stunning next to or on a navy blue suit or dress!
