2015 was a big year for Pantone shade No. 18-1438. That was the year the industry’s leading color toner named it as its Color of the Year. While graphic designers and artists are probably familiar with that number, you know the color better as marsala, a bright, earthy red that offers a lighter shade of burgundy, or a crimson that doesn’t look like a sports team’s color.
Named for the fortified wine of Marsala in Sicily, marsala as a color is perfect for romance. Called a “subtly seductive” shade, its warmth is alluring, tasteful and enchanting. If you want your bouquets and centerpieces to really stand out, consider choosing any of these DIY marsala wedding flowers from Blooms by the Box.
This rich color is easily one of the most popular Pantone shades — way before it was the Color of the Year in 2015 — making it perfectly on-trend for your hip and stylish event. With a deep red hue, it’s also incredibly romantic and an ideal fit for weddings, particularly in the fall and winter. They work for more than just weddings, however:
Pair marsala with complementary creams and light greens for a rich, decadent and royal-inspired flower scheme that will surely capture the hearts and minds of your guests. Although similar to our always-popular burgundy flowers, marsala flowers are slightly lighter with more of a red undertone. By shopping at Blooms by the Box for your marsala and burgundy wedding flowers, you’ll get the best selection of blossoms in this naturally beautiful tone.
