Red is undoubtedly the colour of romance, and hence a popular choice for a wedding colour scheme. While a red dress can look stunning, it’s a bold choice. For those of you who would prefer to opt for white or ivory, we take a look at some fabulous accessories to complement your red themed wedding.
The Romantic Rose
Let’s start with your bouquet, perhaps the most important bridal accessory. Carrying an elegant bouquet of red roses can be all you need as a nod to your colour scheme. This simple bouquet says it all, with the bridesmaids carrying identical rose posies in white.

A Boho Bouquet
For a less formal and more bohemian style, just a few of the deepest red roses add a splash of colour to a natural bouquet with a ‘just-picked’ look.

Florals for Hair
As an alternative to hair pins or tiaras, fresh flowers look stunning in the hair. These blooms hint at a country wedding.

One magnificent fabric flower makes a statement and can also suit a more contemporary city wedding.

Don’t forget the groom. The addition of a red tie or striking red buttonhole is an elegant way to introduce your colour, no matter what shade the suit.

Romance in the Rain
Sometimes it’s all about the small details. You should always be prepared for rain, no matter what time of year you’re tying the knot. A fabulous red umbrella is a great photo prop, even if it the weather is kind!

A Shoe Thing
Who doesn’t love a pair of red shoes? Find your favourite pair and wear them with pride. They’ll be the talking point of the day, and it doesn’t matter if you splash out – you’re bound to wear them again.

For a touch of glamour, choose red lipstick and a matching red nail polish. There are many shades of red so be sure to find the perfect hue for your skin tone.
