If you love the color red and want it to be the main color in your wedding day decor, you will be looking for the best colors to combine with your favorite shade. For many, the wedding is no longer only about the vows. It has become a grand event with a large focus on the wedding theme, decor and color. No matter the size of your event, Alexan Events is here to help you paint the town red! They say you should never eat dessert first. But when I think about red for a wedding, red velvet cake comes to mind first. Just look how mouthwatering this naked red velvet cake is covered in strawberries! If red velvet doesn’t fit your flavor palette try shades of red flowers like these gorgeous burgundy cymbidium orchids cascading down your cake. Set up a tasting with our friends at Kim and Jake’s Cakes to start planning your delicious masterpiece!
Shades of red to adorn your ceremony site. From a deep moody burgundy velvet drapery to bright pops of red flowers around your altar structure or petals to line the aisle. Red decor is ideal for creating a dramatic setting for an outdoor ceremony. Combining shades of red and burgundy will create a show-stopping bridal bouquet. If you want to steer clear of the traditional red roses go for a ruffly, fragrant deep red garden roses. There are so many amazingly beautiful red flowers that often get over looked. I am just head over heals with these incredible red peonies! Shades of pink and white with lots of light airy greenery will tone down the red for a summer garden party themed event. Or if you really want to go over the top we would love to build a floral garland for you made entirely of red orchids! Red shoes or red highlights on your shoes is a great way to add little subtle hints of your signature color without overdoing it. Shades of red shoes, socks, ties or sunglasses for your groom and his men are super cute and trendy. Red is such an eye catching hue that it may be a little intimidating when you think of adding it to your color palette. Don’t worry, we will help you incorporate just the right amount of those beloved reds! Happy painting!
