Inspiration Board: Whimsical Red

Red isn't just for Christmas and Valentine's Day anymore!

The wedding I had this weekend was a Venetian Masquerade Ball theme, with red and gold decor accents. The red and gold together was beautiful and incredibly elegant. Red is usually associated with a more formal and elegant event, especially when paired with black. I thought I would take a different twist on the use of red for brides planning Spring and Summer weddings!

This inspiration board showcases red combined with lighter colors, which gives an event a fun and casual feel- perfect for an outdoor Spring wedding! When you combine red with white, gray, aqua, or any other light color, a fun and whimsical theme is created! Add different elements of decor, and you can make it more elegant or more casual...it's completely up to you!

Row 1: Escort Cards, Invitations, Cake, Shoes
Row 2: Centerpiece, Bouquet, Thank You photo
Row 3: Centerpiece, Chair Menu, Tablescape
Row 4: Reception Decor, Pie Favors

I think the red would be great for a "preppy" wedding too! What do you think of this color palette for a whimsical wedding? Are there any other combinations that you think would work well also?
