Planning Your Palette | Red

Mar 22

Red is the quintessential romantic hue, perfect for a wedding day celebration of love! But don’t let your design dreaming stop at the classic red stem rose, there are SO many more options to explore. I have included some of my favorite palettes of red wedding colors below. No matter the season, you can fall in love with red flowers!

I’ll note your photographer’s style can impact the way that your color floral palette is remembered in your photographs. All of the above designs have more clear red details paired with various ratios of other colors. The next wedding floral design includes both red elements, and more purple elements but the moody photography might make you think all of the colors are a true burgundy. Contrary to the way the flowers are captured in these photos, there was a variety of red, purple, and blush flowers used in this bouquet. It is an absolute all time favorite because of the peonies that look so good you might think they are faux. December peonies from Chile are next level.
