Red Wedding Color Scheme
Ways to Include Red Details in your Wedding
This may seem obvious, but if you know you want to have red as your wedding color scheme; be sure to pick a venue where red won’t completely look out of place. Some hotel ballrooms have bold rugs and other details that can make imposing another color scheme in the room difficult without draping and lighting. You’ll save money if you pick a place that has the aesthetic and color scheme you envision.
Save the dates and invitations are quite often one of the first things your guests will see with your color scheme or theme. While it may seem superficial, the invitations you choose actually are one of the only elements that will give your guests an idea of what to expect before the wedding; so choosing a beautiful invitation that fits with other details can be important to some. We love the choices at Minted, because of the range of styles, and the fact that they have everything from place cards, to favors and table numbers – even websites – to match your invitation suite after you’ve made a selection.
Your florist will be able to suggest a number of flowers in red that will suit your color scheme. Fortunately common flowers in each season from roses to tulips are usually available in this vibrant hue!
Another way to add this color into an empty space is by choosing linens in this shade. A budget tip: for just a bit of color, opt for one element like the napkins or table cloths, or even a favor or place card in your color scheme, and then opt for a basic white or neutral for everything else.
We always keep these pages up to date with some of the latest red bridesmaid dresses. If you’re looking for a particular shade of red and a wide selection of styles, David’s Bridal or Azazie has some of the best hues.
Candles, Vases and Decor
Another way to add red to your wedding decor is from candles (either the tapers or votives themselves, or through vases and other decor emelments
Jewelry and Accessories
Pick some fine jewelry piece in ruby, garnet, or other red stones, or some beautiful semi-precious stones. Etsy has a wonderful selection!
