Red is the color of love. Red is full of romantic, bold and used the right way can make a great statement. Red is a fabulous wedding color choice from your bridesmaid’s dresses, your wedding flowers and reception accents. Ruffledblog.com recently posted a gorgeous Crimson Milwauke Wedding. A theme that ran through the couple wedding was the color red. The color was tastefully woven throughout their special day with just the right accents tying into their big DIY statement piece a handmade crimson red pinwheel wall at the reception.
Wedding flowers were simple arrangements of red, orange and yellow calla lilies. The size of the bride’s wedding flower bouquet matched the bridesmaids using 5-6 calla lily wedding flowers arranged at different heights with greenery looped in the arrangement for a unique sculpturesque wedding flower look. The stems were then wrapped in red satin ribbon, the bride’s white satin ribbon. One of my favorite pops of red was the bride’s shoes, something unique that made a statement but also tied into their whole wedding look.
Remarking on her wedding the bride commented,”Our wedding was sentimental and joyous. Our wedding color scheme was various shades and hues of red.” Advice for any brides to be she also shared, “Pick one thing you are going to splurge on that means the most to you and one thing you are going to let go and live without. This really helped us gain some perspective that everything in the planning process is not equally important and somethings you can live without.”
The bride shared some great advice for any couple planning a wedding. They took what was important to them and made it work, splurging on a good photographer they cut costs in other areas and used their creativity with DIY wedding projects like their pinwheel wall.
