One of the most “delicious” flower and fashion trends of late is the move back to more berry and jewel tones for your color palette. The 2015 color of the year, after all, was a rich burgundy hue called Marsala and we are seeing variations of it everywhere from clothing to housewares.
It’s easy to see why—these rich tones lend a lush and romantic vibe to any event and are especially suitable for weddings. Pair them with cool blues, pale greens, dramatic blacks or grays, and they will suit any event theme from traditional garden to modern with a Parisian twist. Berry tones will work their magic in any season or venue.
The top photo was taken from a midnight garden wedding designed by Julie Savage of Strawberry Milk Events.
As Julie describes, “In this look, everything is glamorous and elegant, yet achievable.”

Flowers in rich berry tones are perfect for any season, but add an extra element of warmth and drama to fall and winter weddings. The rich color of the flowers provides excellent contrast with a white wedding gown and traditional grey or black suits or tuxedos. Berry tones pair especially well with gold or silver metallic accents. Below, pink alstroemeria blends beautifully with the gold sand in these simple mason jars.
Laura Yang and the Pastry Studio used beautiful berry-toned flowers including burgundy ranunculus to decorate their delicious chocolate cake, making it look a scrumptious as it tasted.
To create this look at your own wedding or event, choose a variety of lush flowers in berry or tones of hot pink, pink, red and burgundy. The combination of textures and colors will add a very dramatic element to your decor. Show below, red roses, hot pink spray roses, burgundy ranunculus, and purple alstroemeria. All of these and more berry toned flowers are available in bulk for low prices at BunchesDirect.
For your bridal bouquets, Enchanted Kiss, Red Berry, or Crimson Dream or Red Romance are all perfect choices that will provide the perfect complement to your berry and jewel tone wedding palette. Happy planning!
