Merlot as in a purpley red? or more of a true dark red? For the former–try orange or even yellow for a bold pop. True dark red is a little more difficult.

Also, what time of year is the wedding? I had a friend who did dark purple, dark (dark) red, accents of gold, and white (obvi). It sounds weird but looked great. But this was a swanky winter wedding.

A pale pink might go with a dark red too….

Merlot is a beautiful color.  The challenge is that it can be more purple or red, depending on the material/etc. (could be burgundy, wine, etc.).  Since you’re getting married in the fall, you could go towards the gold, orange, or brown tones.

Or, you could go with wines and blues. 

Otherwise, go with a beautiful cream, champagne, or silver and/or gold. 

You might want to check with your florist to see what flowers are in season that time of year that would compliment the merlot.  That may help you decide what direction to go in.  So many great options!!
