Wedding Trend: Red and Aqua Color Scheme
When you think of a color associated with love, red probably comes to mind. So it makes sense red would be a fabulous wedding scheme. However, too much red can become overpowering.
A great idea is to use another color as the main hue and then add occasional pops of red throughout.
The increasingly popular combination of red and aqua make a fresh statement for your wedding color theme.
Here are some ideas how to add pops of red and turquoise to your wedding.
Bridesmaid Dresses - These light blue attendant dresses would look fantastic on their own, but with the addition of the red sash the look is modern and new. Another option would be aqua dresses with red flowers for the ladies.
Tablescape - Martha Stewart shows a striking table setting for a reception combining red flowers atop a table runner made from light blue paper.
Cake - Sticking to white for two of the three cake tiers makes this red on this cake a beautiful accent color.
Favors - Robert and Co Events showcases light blue wedding favor boxes adorned with red ribbon. Purchase favor boxes such as these square ones that allow you to select the box and ribbon colors.
Red is a classic wedding color no matter what season. Adding an accent color such as bright teal brings a sense of liveliness to the wedding.
