Trend Alert: Blue and Deep Red
We love finding new colour trends to inspire you, and the latest colours to reach the Guides for Brides HQ is this stunning combination; blue and deep red. Luscious and romantic, they really make the perfect match, don’t they? Take a look below for some beautiful ideas you can use to add this colour into your wedding day.
1. Bold, Contrasting Colours
Red and white provide the perfect contrast, and choosing punchy dresses for your bridesmaids will create striking photos as the stand beside you looking sassy and confident in retro red like Mandy’s bridesmaids.
2. Queen For The Day
If you think flower crowns are exclusively for summer weddings and pastel shades then think again, as we make our case to convert you with the help of this beautiful bride! We love the rich autumnal berry reds in Phoebe’s flower crown, making it the perfect accessory for a pure white dress.
3. Flower Power
Red and blue doesn’t have to be bold and brash- look how perfectly these wildflowers blend together when combined with soft pink in this bouquet!
4. Have Your Cake
We love the simplicity of these rose beautiful decorations, if you wanted to add some blue why not switch the pearls for some chic navy ribbon?
5. Table For Two
We love the classic colour combinations at play in this table layout. We love these cool red jars and if you’re feeling crafty why not make your own denim accents from recycled jeans, similar to these navy fabric placemats and perfect for a rustic wedding!
6. Give Me A Sign
Who doesn’t love a totally Instagrammable sign, particularly when it’s in a vibrant pillar-box red?! These upcycled signs are super easy to make and add a really nice personal touch to your day.
7. Softly Softly
We think these minimalist soft lavenders and blues set the perfect scene for some al fresco dining and would make great partners for bold red accents, we just want to take our place on these comfy cushions!
8. 99…ish Red Balloons
Give your wedding photos a unique and totally kitsch edge by giving your guests some red balloons, not only will they add some colour and a sense of fun but you’re also bound to be popular with any kids in attendance- just remember not to let go!
9. Best Foot Forward
We think these regal heels would make a great something blue, we think they’d look great with a retro Tea Length dress, as they’re too good not to be on display!
10. Suits You
We love a man in a suit and we think this navy and red pairing looks particularly dashing!
Suits you, sir – a simple and effective way to incorporate that colour scheme. Blue suits are such a dream. Why not style with some matching cufflinks as well for the ultimate look!
We are so in love with this table plan. An easy way to add colour and these simple lace table runners with red roses really bring the table to life.
Jazz up your wedding cake with these gorgeous blue and red flowers; a subtle but stunning extra.
