Strictly Weddings shares our favorite ways to incorporate the strong and seductive allure of Marsala Fall & Winter 2015 color trends, Pantone's color of the year. As we enter into spring, the rich and earthy Marsala red affirms its place in fashion and decor. At Strictly Weddings, we've kept a close eye on how this robust yet warm and grounding color has expressed itself in the wedding world. While it may not have made quite the explosive impact as its predecessor, the oh-so-regal Radiant Orchid, we predict to see Marsala's plush red hues come heavier on the scene in the fall and winter months. To that point, we invite you to get inspired with our three Marsala color stories for fall and winter brides.

The Perfect Pair : Marsala & Blush

We begin our journey with the beautiful blend of Marsala's earthy red married to a soft spectrum of neutral tones. We see Marsala easing into fall by juxtaposing its robust wine color notes with the lightness of blush, rose golds, and hints of peach. Feeling flirty? Add just a touch of mint to keep the look fresh and fun. We adore the romance and femininity of this wedding color story for our early fall brides!

Fall In love : Marsala Blooms

Our second color inspiration calls on Marsala's rich and seductive nature. With a large array of floral stems available in Marsala's range of sexy reds, consider a dramatic display of gorgeous monochromatic blooms for your fall centerpieces. We also love seeing Marsala botanic beauty as floral detail on bridal gowns and cake decor. Like a sumptuous red wine, its enticing aura means you can truly never have enough!

Winter Regalness : Gilded Glamour

For our winter brides, we love Marsala (a few shades deeper) combined with the timeless elegance of regal gold. Here, the intensity of ruby reds are grounded by gold's neutral tones and together offer a stunning contrast to all white winterscapes. Another trend we're loving for the 2015 fall and winter season are dashing grooms donning finely tailored Marsala suits; a gorgeous complement to any bride!
