Merlot is the perfect shade for your flowers! Since it is such a rich color it really stands out, but it also goes beautifully with other colors, such as the soft yellows and lively greens in this gorgeous bouquet. Pulling elements from your bouquet into your groom’s boutonniere will make for gorgeous shots of a coordinated couple. We are obsessed with this groom’s matching merlot boutonniere!

Looking for table settings that are eye catching and stylish? Merlot is the way to go! We love how classy and warm it looks with this gorgeous outdoor scene. Red is a very strong color, but the merlot salad plates with the light green dinner plates are a perfect combo that allows you to add merlot to your table decor without being too heavy on the red!

There are so many different types of flowers that come in merlot, so the possibilities really are endless! Your table centerpieces can incorporate multiple types of merlot flowers, giving them continuity while not looking too matchy-matchy. It also ties your centerpieces back to your bouquet and boutonniere, making your whole wedding cohesive and gorgeous!
