It’s a terrific color to use for your big day not only for its sheer beauty but also for the wide availability of decorative elements in this shade. Bear in mind these decorating tips to have sexy and beautiful red wedding that everyone will talk about.
Roses are red
A red wedding isn’t a red wedding without the roses! These are the staple flowers for this occasion. Red roses can be arranged in bouquets and tied with a satin ribbon to be used as decoration for the reception venue, specifically the couple’s gazebo, buffet table or guests’ tables. They can also be used to dress up the pews or pillars in the ceremony site. You may combine red roses with white, yellow or pink roses for a contrasting look. Or mix together red roses with other flowers such as calla lilies, alstroemeria, hypericum berries, Gerbera daisies, tulips, or carnation.
Fly the balloons
Cheaper but also classy and chic are heart-shaped balloons in red and white colors. Spread dozens of these balloons around the venue. For one, you can fill up the ceiling with these balloons so that guests would be impressed when they look up. You may also have a professional arrange balloons to form a pillar that can be placed in the venue entrance. Balloons can also be used as table centerpieces.
Get red and glowing
A dinner reception would look especially lovely if the venue is bedecked with red Japanese paper lanterns. Go for printed ones with Japanese characters or designs if you’re having an oriental-themed wedding. Otherwise, buy the plain ones that come in various shapes and sizes. Hang them around the reception venue and light them up for an incredible glowing ambience that the guests will surely adore.
Prettify the chairs
Cover the chairs with white or cream cloth. For a stunning accent, tie a red organza on top. Or you can do it the other way around. Cover the chair first with a red cloth and tie it with sheer tulle or organza. Finish it off by adding a bow at the back of the chair and inserting some red roses blooms.
Let’s not forget: fine small details
Achieve a striking contrast for the table napkins by using a red napkin holder for a crisp white napkin. Sprinkle rose petals all over the cream or off white table cloth. Make use of red crystal or clear vases for the table centerpiece. As for the giveaway, anything tied or wrapped with red ribbon or packaging can pass as a red wedding favor. Other elements to incorporate into the decoration include red beads, red pearls, red curtains, red candle holders, red sparkles, red buttons, red laces, red candles, and red wedding cake.
Red is a timeless color that can turn any simple wedding into one that’s gorgeous and sizzling. Make yours perfect by heeding all the tips and ideas mentioned here.
