Who says red is for Christmas and Valentine’s day? Red throughout fall can be classy and cozy at the same time! Plus, there are so many different reds that you can incorporate into your wedding, so don’t limit yourself to your basic red. A more orangey-red can help accent a warm color scheme, so something with creams, browns, oranges, yellows, and so on. A bluer or violet toned red (so our wine/maroon shades) can go with a deeper, cooler range of colors. And a rich, statement, cherry red looks perfect surrounded by neutrals. It would be the perfect pop of color if you’re someone that appreciates a clean, crisp, but still bold look to their bouquets. Or cakes, like this one! (I'm definitely saving this picture for future reference, how about you?)
I know we always think of orange and brown and all those warm shades in the fall months, but this year blues are hitting the scene in a big way. Blues don’t have to be left out once the weather gets cooler ! If you’re in need of some stark contrast but don’t want to use black, blue tones (like the navy blue in these invitations) might be just what you need. Oh, and remember that robin’s egg blue that you enjoyed last spring? That color isn’t reserved for Easter. Incorporating that into your décor can add a soft hint of color to any scene.
Also, who said that you had to pick a statement color to incorporate into your wedding? If you are all about those neutrals and want, say, a black-and-white wedding, have at it! Just look how well these gentlemen did it! Don’t be afraid to step outside of the stereotypical, wedding-magazine color swatches and have a little fun. After all, this is YOUR wedding. Whatever hues put a smile on you and your partner’s faces should be what you include.
