Ideas for a romantic red wedding

Encompassing everything from daring dresses to fantastic flowers, SoGlos has found some inspired ideas for bringing a red-themed wedding to life.

Whether couples are planning a cosy winter wedding or bright summer celebration, a red theme works well; vibrant and warm, the colour is beautiful from pale rose touches to sizzling scarlet tones.

SoGlos is embracing the colour with this latest feature, finding some picture-perfect ideas for a romantic red wedding.


Say yes to the dress


Daring brides can shun tradition and choose their perfect red wedding dress; a colour which embodies glamour and passion, it’s sure to wow guests and the all-important groom.


Perfect pout


A makeup look that’s timeless and effortlessly gorgeous; the red lip. Create the perfect pout for that first kiss as husband and wife, and keep it topped up throughout the day. It’ll not only look amazing, but it will match the red theme to a tee.


Beautiful bridesmaids


For ladies who want to wear white, there’s the option to dress the bridesmaids in vibrant red outfits. From deep ruby through to pale rose, there’s sure to be a shade that complements the couple’s big day.


Dashing groom


An entire red suit may be a little much, but red touches can be incorporated easily. A coloured tie, buttonhole or lapel is ideal, while bright shoes or even a shirt add a little more jazz.


Fabulous florals

Create a beautiful bouquet of flaming crimson, scarlet, and bright berry colours, or alternatively, subtle blush tones – both will work perfectly for a red wedding theme.

When thinking about transport to and from the wedding reception or ceremony, why not opt for a gorgeous red car, offering the perfect backdrop for photos. Kushi Cars, for example, boasts opulent, colourful interiors. Alternatively, adorn the wedding car with red ribbons and floral arrangements.


It’s all in the details


Whether couples are adopting a subtle approach, or want to go all-out, there are endless elements where colour can be introduced. From stationery and centrepieces, to signage and seat covers, bring the venue alive with dashes of warm red hues.


Too good to eat


Playing an important role in the wedding is, of course, the cake. Acting as a showstopping feature, it’s sure to be snapped endlessly as the newlyweds cut the first slice. Go for a red velvet cake, coloured fondant icing, or adorn the creation with bright flowers – all options promise a stunning visual effect.


A tantalising tipple


Crimson-coloured cocktails, velvety red wine, and smooth sangria will all go down a treat with guests. Plus, they’ll look great – ticking all the boxes for the vibrant colour theme.


Set the mood

Red is the perfect colour for an atmospheric reception; create a romantic effect through up lighting at the wedding venue. Whether that be block colours or shades of red, it promises to be an eye-catching touch.


Dazzling display

The perfect finale for a perfect red wedding, light up the skies with a dazzling fireworks display. Offering great entertainment all-year-round, fireworks will wow guests – and to bring out everyone’s inner child, hand out sparklers and the wedding party can join in the fun.
