Bold And Colourful Burgundy White Wedding Theme – 6 Ways On Cake

Burgundy and white look stunning together. Bold colours pop on white. With a burgundy white wedding theme, you most certainly should add the bold colour to the cake. If it seems a bit too much, consider going with pastel tones with touches of the bold colour amongst it all. If this is a colour theme you want to incorporate into your wedding; you are going to have fun!

A Wedding Theme is a thread that shows itself clearly in everything. So the invitations, flowers, decor, the cake and the favours all tie together and look fantastic when done well.

1. Going Bold With The Burgundy White Wedding Theme

Isn’t it gorgeous? It has marbled grey bits in the icing and gorgeous fresh burgundy and pink flowers among purple leaves and berries. It has the feel of Autumn. The cake itself is clean and plain allowing the flowers to get the center stage. A unique topper would not spoil the effect and would give it the extra height if needed.

2. Getting The Right Amount Of Burgundy to White On The Cake

Not so comfortable with the amount of colour on the cake? A more subtle approach would be a cake like this. With just a sprinkling of the burgundy against the white with the only other colours being the grey-green leaves and pale pink roses.

While the cake is fondant smooth, a buttercream finish would also work. With such a large cake, getting sugar flowers to decorate each tier can get expensive. Many settle on the blobbing effect of one flower per tier – but with this design, you can see how by making a focal point, you don’t need more than two big flowers.

Wedding Cake Tip:

And there is a lot of room for adding your own unique extras within the circle or a custom made monogram as an alternative.

Just a touch of the bold colour, but enough to make it work in the theme of burgundy and white. This is the rustic version of the above idea, a beautiful ruffle wedding cake.

It almost looks like the burgundy roses are dried, but it is subtle and not overwhelming. Certainly, lots of ways to make this cake yours. It would work for Fall Weddings and outdoor settings.

Wedding Cake Tip:

The cake design is one thing – the cake stand design is another. It’s when you match the two that the magic happens!

4. Adding Other Colours To The Burgundy White Wedding Theme

While the white works with the burgundy, it’s interesting to me that often other colours are brought in to it. The colour works well with greens, pinks and purples. Here’s one that adds orange and gold to the mix. With the doughnuts and whirlwind effect, it stands out as being fun, meaningful to the couple and will certainly be remembered.

5. Burgundy On Blue With An Accent Of White

And here is burgundy and blue with a touch of white. It’s an interesting combination and shows that wedding cakes can be any colour. The trick with this kind of cake is to get your tones correct. Stick to cool or warm colours and be careful about mixing them.

Wedding Cake Tip:

This cake design requires a similar cake stand large enough to add the flowers on the edge.
