Celebrating a Red Themed Wedding

thumbnail 4.59.56 PMWinter weddings are a fantastic time to use some bold, stunning colors to provide a beautiful backdrop to the couple. Red is the color of January, and serves as a wonderful choice for those who will be having their weddings during this month. Red can help providing a stunning contrast to the white that tends to be so prominent in the winter, particularly with the winter wonderland outside from any snow. Here are some wonderful ideas for couples looking to incorporate red into their wedding day plans.


Flowers can be used nearly anywhere in the wedding. Particularly in the winter, flowers can be a wonderful way to bring some of the light and life of the outdoors inside. Even though much of the country finds themselves stuck inside this time of year, the beauty of flowers can be used to bring a smile to anyone’s face.

Use some bold red colors in the flowers selected. For example, a bouquet of stunning red flowers can be particularly appropriate. Red roses are often associated with passionate love, which can be very appropriate for a wedding.

Red flowers can also be used throughout the wedding and reception as decorations. Consider placing flowers around the chairs or pews where the guests will sit or using them on the tables in the reception hall.


Red tablecloths can help produce a beautiful impact and create a more formal atmosphere. Those who use red tablecloths can pair them with white flowers or other table centerpieces to provide contrast. Candles used in the centerpiece can help add to the formality and beauty of the event and can be an excellent choice for a red, winter wedding.

Bridesmaid dresses

Red can be a gorgeous color to complement the traditional white gown of the bride. Use red in the bridesmaid dresses to provide a stunning contrast to the bride and create almost a winter wonderland effect. Look for deep red dresses, particularly when looking to create a more formal or evening event. Lighter reds might be more appropriate for a less formal or daytime event.

Engaged couples looking for ways to dress up their winter nuptials should look for ways to incorporate the beautiful color of red into their decorations. Consider the above ideas and see how this gorgeous color might be able to create the intimate, lovely look the couple seeks. Browse flowers for some more ideas on our website Breen’s Florist.
