Five Ways to Add Color to Your Red Themed Wedding

thumbnail 4.59.56 PMRed is the official color for the month of January. Representing love, romance, and passion, red is also a popular color choice for wedding decorations and themes. Whether planning a January wedding is keeping you busy or nuptial planning for another month, splash your ceremony and reception with red accents for added visual interest and passionate personality.

The following are five ways to accent your big day with the color of love.

1. Attire – At a wedding, the wedding party is part of the decor. So, bridesmaid dresses, groomsman cummerbunds, ties, and vests will all add pizzazz to a wedding party. Although wearing a red wedding dress might not be every bride’s cup of tea, she can still add pops of red color to her outfit with red heels, lipstick, a red sash belt, brooch, and even ruby jewelry.

Linens – Weddings provide several opportunities to decorate and add color with linens. While red napkins and tablecloths are a good place to start, you can also use differently textured fabrics like tulle or satin to drape from the ceiling or tie around the backs of chairs at the ceremony and the reception.

3. Cake – Apart from the head table, the cake serves as the centerpiece to the whole reception and celebration, and its design should reflect the ceremony’s theme and style. Whether the cake is elegant, whimsical, traditional, or modern, adding red ribbon or flowers on white or chocolate frosting will add the perfect touch of color.

5. Favors – Give each guest a little something red to take home as a souvenir from your big day. You can give them red candy like licorice, red hots, cinnamon hearts or a token like candles, bubbles, or any item that fits your personal style.
