It’s a nice day for a….red wedding

After all, red is the colour of passion and love so why not use this dramatic colour for your wedding theme! Red wouldn’t be many brides first choice or even second choice but hopefully these ideas will give you inspiration to channel the red vibe. Let’s start with the dress, yes a red wedding dress! There have been many different coloured gowns rocking the catwalk lately like blues and pinks but red seems to be the biggest coloured trend in 2014 which would be perfect for those braver brides. Celebrities such as Jessica Biel and Anne Hathaway have both turned their back on tradition by choosing coloured dresses so why not join them and make heads turn while you strut down the aisle.

To compliment the dress you will need a dramatic red bouquet so if you’re planning to get married in the winter season then a good choice of flowers to use are black magic’s, red devils, amaryllis and even some sprigs of berries to catch the season perfectly. On the other hand, if you’re channelling the rustic vibe then a good bouquet to use is one which includes, eucalyptus, red dahlias, orange zinnias, and red celosia’s which creates a romantic yet casual look. To decorate your wedding reception arrange red feathers, diamonds and petals in elegant red vases for the table centrepieces to create a dramatic look. How about hanging red bunting around the marquee or red lanterns from the ceiling if you’re having a relaxed wedding with a quirky twist?

The cake is a superb way to grasp the red theme as many cake makers create wonderful red designs to help you make a statement which will surely go down well with your guests. Spectacular creations to consider are an oriental wedding cake which features a rich red fondant base, sugar-paste flowers, chocolate fans and piping touched with edible gold, or how about an elegant cake which features a red fondant base and is covered in a detailed gold paisley icing effect.

Hopefully these unique ideas will help you to create the perfect red themed wedding!
