Wedding Colour Inspiration: Red, Red, Red!

Red is a very bold colour to incorporate into your wedding day; if used the right way, you would have an iconic wedding to remember with show-stopping detail. Here are some ways you can infuse red into your wedding line-up:

Wedding Wardrobe

If you feel a red wedding dress is too bold for you, then you can settle for red flowery accents or lace detail on your classic white dress. Also, a red wedding reception dress will wow your guests and give you that boldness to get your party started. You can opt for a structured jumpsuit if that’s more comfortable. Red gele could also be worn for traditional weddings

Hair and Makeup

Wedding hair is usually a big deal; be daring and dye your hair red or use red extensions in your hairstyle. Not into that subtle bridal makeup? Go bold with red lips or glittery eye-shadow and release your inner show-girl!

Bridal Train

Bridesmaids always look stunning in long red dresses with a tailored fit while the groomsmen never go wrong with red pocket squares and ties in a blue suit.

A bouquet of red roses or with a combination of different colour of flowers brings out the beauty of the wedding dress.

Event Décor

Red ribbons and roses can be used to decorate table runners and little bows on chairs. Table cloths could also be lined with lace or velvet to enhance the richness of the theme.

Wedding Cake

The easiest way to incorporate red into your cake is with icing or a tasty red velvet cake.

Dessert and Drinks

The wedding menu can include desserts with a hint of red like strawberry cheesecake and cupcakes with a topping of raspberry coulis. Drinks like Red wine, cocktails, and juice can be served to go with the theme.
