In fact burgundy wedding dress is the most popular choice for non-white non-ivory wedding color scheme because of the joyful symbolic meaning of burgundy color in many cultures.

We talked about burgundy + blue, burgundy + silver, burgundy + pink and many other burgundy themed wedding design before. If you want to go for a more classy and traditional approach then burgundy + ivory is for you.

Ivory And Burgundy Wedding Dress

Often referred to as “eggshell,” ivory hue has quickly become the most popular shade of white for modern brides.

Ivory wedding dress has a similar meaning as white dress, it means innocence, virginity, purity, new start and peace. One of the top reasons of why brides go for ivory wedding dress instead of white color is because Ivory color matches better to a vintage classy wedding style, also it works better on certain skin stone/hair color when compared to a pure white color.

The creamy color adds a level of luxury while still photographing as white. Some ivory dresses have yellow undertones as opposed to just a soft white look.

It is very common to add some burgundy details to an ivory wedding dress in the format of wine color ribbons, crystals, florals and silk trims. If you do not want any burgundy color on the wedding dress, you can still add some maroon burgundy highlights through choice of makeup, hair dye, bouquet, heels, nail art etc.
