Oh, red of heaven, how we adore you! Don’t be shy of a dramatic radiant red – it’s the perfect accent to big-day drama and a flash of flair…
“A red wedding dress, did you say? Red? Have you gone quite mad?!” Whilst we have some sympathy for those who view a shock of radiant red in a wedding dress as a step too far (although we salute you the good women who dare), radiant red as an accent theme, when used sparingly, is truly a glorious sight to behold. This bold and beautiful colour cannot help but confer onto proceedings a sense of Hollywood glamour and panache. Don’t believe us? Just look…
Never overbearing but packing a real punch, these ruby-red chairs at the reception add a regal note and sense of occasion. (After all, you are a princess aren’t you…?)
For Mothers of the bride and groom, this statement hat adds a note of sophistication. Add a half-birdcage veil and a flash of feathers for a younger look – perfect if you’ve advised guests of a monochrome dress code with the chance to personalise!
Subtlety and radiant red aren’t necessarily three words you would put together, but as shown here, when used as an accent colour against a cream backdrop, the effect is simply stunning. We love the Art Deco style of this cake too!
Cherry-red stilettos and a heart design will always be true sole mates. Too glorious not to show off, these peep-toe beauties would look dazzling when teamed with a crisp white 1950s tea-length wedding dress. We love the collection at specialday-ireland.com
So your themes and colours take you as far away from radiant red as possible… no matter, you can still use this marvellous shade to perfection. Give your aisle the VIP treatment with a red carpet look and you’ll feel like a superstar all day.
Our favourite finishing touch has to be this postbox-red, er, postbox! We love the retro touch and what an inventive way to collect all your cards!
