20 Fabulous Red and White Wedding Ideas

Wedding Dress

Every girl has a dream wedding dress, and almost all of them want a white or off-white dress. But if you want to change a bit you’ll be surprise to know that you can add some colors but still look amazing. If your first answer to “what about a red wedding dress” is “never in a billion years”, well think again. See how gorgeous it looks in details? Red bow or even veil gives something more to the look.

Hair and Makeup

You can add a lot of red in the hair and makeup of the bride. For examples, flower crowns. Or if you’re just looking for something more classic, stick with the classic hair accessories. And red lips on your wedding day will certainly make you shine!


Red jewelry? Oh yes! In that moment rubies can be your best friend. Red earrings,  red necklaces, red bracelets, they all fit so beautifully with a white wedding gown.


You might think that shoes are not that important but you’re so wrong. Normally brides go with white or silver shoes, but it looks so different and gives such an fashionable look when you choose red heels, and when you add jewelry or glitter? Work of art. Red soles looks great and not just for the bride, the groom can pull it off to. Louboutin feelings.


It’s not rule anymore that the groom need to wear a black suit on the wedding day, so why not add some red on it? You can go with the red tie or red boutonniere, or you can go even further and choose red pants for the groom! Got to say, I’m in love with that middle groom look.


Red bouquets are more normal to see in any wedding, it is beautiful and classic, but what about mix red flowers with white one or even orange, salmon or pink flowers? If you think that the bride’s bouquet MUST be red, well try this on the bridesmaids bouquets. It will look gorgeous!


Now that we are talking about bridesmaids let’s agree that red looks good on anyone! If you are too afraid to add the red on your wedding gown, go with red dresses for your bridesmaids! It’s a wonderful color and it fits perfectly on the shoots with the bride’s white dress.


The groomsmen’s outfit on a red and white wedding can be quite a challenge, but don’t worry, I’m not suggesting red suits, just red details, like the ties, the vest or just the pants. Look how cute those groomsmen in the red pants, black suspenders and bow ties!

Flower Girl and Ring Bearer

The flower girl and/or the ring bearer need to fit with the looks too, they may be small but they’re a big part of the ceremony. In many weddings, those kids are dressed as mini brides and grooms, what looks really cute but what about an all red dress to the flower girl or add the red on a bow tie to the ring bearer?


If you were not in love with red and white for weddings before, you’ll be now! Look how romantic the decoration with red flowers looks. I can’t get enough of this, so gorgeous. Red on the tables, on the dance floor, on the chairs, on the roof, just amazing!


Red on the cake too? Oh yes. You can go with a traditional white cake with red roses on top (and look at the cupcakes matching!) or a big red cake. And naked cakes are so popular these days that you can have a red naked cake on your wedding day, different and beautiful!


On top of the cake, you have the wedding dolls, which shows so much of the couple. Normally we use dolls that represent the groom and bride, but what about just the couples initials or just “Mr & Mrs”?


Red roses on the floor or in the chairs, and even a big red roses wall can make all the deference on the aisle! Plus it looks so romantic.


Paper time! Red on invitations gives such a passionate mood for the wedding that it cannot hurt to try it. Red goes so well with so many colors but with white, it’s a perfect match! And how fun it is the idea of a balloon invitation?

Menu and Program

When you’re decorating a wedding you can’t forget the little things like menus and programs, it might seem not that important, but it makes it the guests feels more comfortable knowing the schedule and what is there to eat.

Food and Drinks

The red and white theme can go even on the foods and drinks! Pink lemonade is so popular right now, that if you add strawberries or other red fruits on the jar, it will blend really well with the decor!

Wedding Favor

It is great to have something to remember the wedding. The red looks awesome in little favor boxes or in cupcakes decorations.

Wedding Shoots

To finish this red and white wedding inspiration post, if you are still not confident about these colors, well, here it’s a final motive: it looks great on pictures! Don’t forget that the wedding shoots are the ones that it’s going to make you remember how perfect that day was, so don’t think cheap when it comes to photography. Remember to take pictures with the bridesmaids and groomsmen, the parents, the bride’s dress, all the decoration, food and drinks, and everything that we just saw it. Every little detail must be on the pictures!

What about now? In love with the red and white theme?!
