A red wedding theme for Valentine’s Day
Red is big this month, since Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. Here are a few inspirational images for those planning a red-themed wedding in February and beyond.
Why not start your red theme off right with a ruby or garnet engagement ring? Wedding rings that incorporate stones other than diamonds are a growing trend. Pop star Jessica Simpson is currently sporting a ruby-and-diamond engagement ring by Neil Lane.
Your wedding party can sport fun red hues. What bridesmaid wouldn’t want a chic red dress to add to her arsenal?
Your groom and groomsmen can continue the Valentine’s Day theme. Add a pop of red with ties, cumberbunds, boutonnieres, and cufflinks.
And of course, your bridal look can involve red as well. A red sash or accent on your wedding dress is striking and unexpected.
Red roses are the ultimate timeless symbol of love, and they make for a beautiful wedding bouquet. There are plenty of other fabulous red flowers to add to your bouquet, such as Gerbera daisies, ranunculus, tulips, poppies, hibiscus, to name a few.
Accessories are always a great way to have fun with color. Red shoes and hair accessories or a red garter can add a touch of whimsy. We like the idea of giving these LOVE Havaianas to all your bridesmaids, or keeping a basket of them handy near the dance floor for when guests tire of their formal footwear.
Your options are endless when it comes to incorporating red into your wedding decor. Favors, table settings, and garlands are just a few ways to inject the color of love into your wedding.
Don’t forget to add some red to your cake! Try something new with a red velvet wedding cake, or offer your guests some sweet, edible Valentine’s Day-inspired favors.
Who says the love affair with red has to stop after the reception? Red wedding lingerie is classically sexy.
We’ve just focused on basic red here in honor of Valentine’s Day, but we love these creative color pairings:
