Red is hot and the colour to be embracing in 2024. If you want a romantic and vibrant colour theme for your wedding day, then red could be the one for you!

Red is hot right now, and a red-themed wedding is a daring yet romantic option for couples looking to make a colourful statement at their soirée. Since the colour red symbolises joy, passion, love, and energy, the colour is a natural fit for an event that commemorates a couple’s love story. 

With so many hues, from claret tones for winter to cherry red in summer, there’s a shade to suit your desired aesthetic.

Red Hot Invitations 

Set the tone of your red-themed bash with your invitations. These will give your guests their first glimpse of your wedding style, so if red is the colour of the day, you will want to ensure they are aware of this. Whether a stylish red and pink mix or a glamorous red and gold, you opt for the finish that best suits how you are choosing to incorporate this colour into your celebrations.

Red Hot Attire 

If you’re a bold bride, rocking a red dress on your special day will grab everyone’s attention. For more traditional brides who have their hearts set on wearing a classic white gown, infuse red into your accessories, such as a red pair of shoes, a necklace or your bouquet. You can also integrate the bright hue into your beauty look with red lipstick, after all a classic red lip is timeless.

For a colour-coordinated look, the groom can sport a red tuxedo jacket or add a pop with a red tie. For a spring/summer wedding on trend florals with a hint of of red would look great for the grooms accessories (toe, waistcoat, etc.) and could tie in with a red floral print of the bridesmaids. Mixing and matching bridesmaids with a plain red and a ditsy red-based floral would look great too.

When it comes to your wedding flowers, don’t be afraid to mix red with other vibrant hues. Reds and blues can look great together, as can pink and coral tones. It is all about getting the right tones to offer the finish you are after.

Red Hot Décor 

Decorate your ceremony space with red flowers, which could be combined with neutral tones or fun, vibrant pinks. For example, scarlet and hot pink roses paired with greenery for lush garden services in the spring/summer or red and gold foliage accompanied by pampas grass for earthy bohemian nuptials in autumn/winter. You could even add your red carpet to the aisle as you walk down to say your vows.

When it comes to the reception you can continue the creativity with floral decorations, hanging lanterns, and of course your table settings with the help of your table linen, glassware, place-settings, favours and more.

Red Hot Cuisine 

By incorporating red tones into the food and drink you are serving, your cuisine can help reinforce your theme. When it comes to your drinks they could be served in red glasses, red-colour themed cocktails could be served garnished with seasonal red berries, whether cranberries at Christmas or strawberries in Spring/Summer. You could also served red themed canapés and a wedding cake on display featuring your favourite red will add a burst of colour to your interiors.
