“Vision in Red was designed to show how to incorporate both the contrast between a light colour and a bold colour as well as gradient shades. We used nudes and blushes to neutralize such a dominant colour and want to show couples that their favourite colour CAN be used for their wedding when done right.

Bold colours usually require other bold colours for balance, then get placed in the “moody” style of design. We used this bold red paired with textures of red velvet and blush chiffon in the overlay of the tablescape. Pairing with a blush undertone wedding gown softens the look and adds an element of romance.

Adding texture to your design gives depth and allows contrast with your other decor items. Many couples are left feeling like they have to choose a metal option to add some “flare” but choosing a texture like leather, velvet, chiffon, or wood can change a design completely. ” – Kelsey, Satin and Slate Weddings

When choosing a bold colour, remember to:

  • find a gradient
  • choose a texture OR a metal
  • find accenting colours in your white contrasting colour, like a blush or sandstone undertoned wedding gown. Straying away from white isn’t a bad thing.
