How to Use Maroon in Your Wedding

Maroon is a great anchor color for this color palette. Use it throughout of your wedding in areas like:

  • Bridesmaids Dresses: Maroon bridesmaids dresses look good on everyone!
  • Flowers: Work with your florist to get the shade of maroon just right, and avoid red flowers. Great choices are roses, dahlias and ranunculus.
  • Table Linens: Choose maroon table lines for your reception tables.

Adding in Sage and Navy Blue Tones

You accent colors are sage and navy. Use them to complement maroon:

  • Greenery: Using real greens will soften your entire day. Again, work with your florist to choose sage-colored greens like eucalyptus, and stay away from bright or rich green colors.
  • Flowers: Accent your maroon blooms with pop of navy and sage. Although navy might seem like an usual color for flowers, both thistle and privet berries will get you the look you want!

Oak Wood Accents

The oak color is what makes this look feel more natural. To achieve it, use natural oak-color woodgrain accents in your wedding décor:

  • Chairs: Instead of classic white chairs, to for natural wood instead. It’s amazing what this simple detail does to set the tone for your ceremony and reception.
  • Centerpieces: Using slabs of wood as a base for centerpieces floral arrangements is a simple cheap and beautiful way to give your reception a more rustic feel.
