How To Tastefully Add Red To Your Wedding Day!

Your wedding day is a celebration of love, commitment, and personal style. While many couples opt for traditional white or pastel colour schemes, incorporating a bold and passionate colour like red can add a touch of glamour and drama to your special day. However, finding the right balance is key to ensure that red doesn’t overpower the entire event. In this blog post, we’ll explore creative ways to infuse red into your wedding day without it taking over.

1. Choosing the right shade

   Instead of opting for a bright and bold red, consider choosing a more subdued and sophisticated shade. Burgundy, wine red, or dusty rose can add a touch of warmth without being too overwhelming. These tones blend well with various colour palettes and can create an elegant and timeless atmosphere.

2. Flowers

   Use red flowers strategically to bring bursts of colour without dominating the event. Incorporate red roses, peonies, or dahlias into your bouquet, centrepieces, and floral arrangements. Balance the red blooms with complementary colours like whites, greens, or blush tones to create a harmonious and visually appealing display.

5. Stationary

   Red can make a statement on your wedding invitations and stationery. Choose elegant fonts and pair red with neutral colours like ivory or gold to create a sophisticated look.

6. Bridesmaid Dresses

   Dressing your bridal party in red can be a stunning choice, but be mindful of the intensity of the colour. Consider selecting different shades of red for bridesmaid dresses or have your bridesmaids wear neutral tones with red accessories like shoes, bouquets, or sashes.

7. Signature Cocktails:

   Create signature cocktails featuring red fruits or flavours. This is a fun and creative way to incorporate the colour into your wedding without it taking over. Consider drinks like a pomegranate martini or a raspberry-infused champagne cocktail.

8. Shoes:

We all love a red shoe but finding the right colour will be the biggest challenge. Look for a deeper red and opt for a velvet to soften the look.

Incorporating red into your wedding day can add a touch of passion and flair without overpowering the entire event. By choosing subtle shades, strategically using red accents, and maintaining a balanced colour palette, you can create a wedding that is both stylish and timeless. Let your love shine through in every detail, and your red-infused wedding day is sure to be a memorable and elegant celebration.
