For a red and blue wedding theme, the two primary colors come in a variety of hues in nature that will blend well together in your flower selections and decorations. Balanced with a neutral white or ivory, these color combinations give a pleasing appearance to your wedding decorations.
Tiffany blue mixed with a soft pastel pink gives a formal look to a wedding. Dress the bride in an ivory gown with a blue topaz earrings and a bouquet of pink calla lilies wrapped with a blue tiffany ribbon. The blue bridesmaid's gowns are accented with the same pink flowers. Use the blue to line the tables and for the chair backs. Distribute the soft pink color in the fan folded napkins, place settings, chair and pew bows. A centerpiece combining the calla lilies in a clear square vase filled with cut blue glass finishes the decorations.
Go with a playful, summertime, candy theme. Surround the bride's updo with an aqua-color orchid as you trim the ivory bridal gown with aquamarine colored lace. A nosegay of orchids wrapped in candy apple red ribbons completes the bride's ensemble. Dress the tables with a candy apple red table cloth with aquamarine lace used as table settings, napkins and plates. A centerpiece of large, whirly, twirled lollipops of aquamarine and candy apple red sits in the center of the table with dropped-color crystal glass beads.
The bride's gown of layered gossamer turquoise contrasts the fuchsia gowns of the bridesmaids, while several peacock feathers with a fuchsia and turquoise eye blend with anthuriums in an elaborate bouquet. Turquoise linens line the tables, with fuchsia napkins and place mats. Peacock feathers gathered in the middle of the centerpiece are surrounded by bright fuchsia anthurium flowers, while turquoise taper candles run the length of the table adding soft light to the display.
Combine the colors of the flag for the wedding. Dress the bridesmaids in blue with red and white striped sashes with a bouquet of red and white carnations with tiny flags inside. A white wedding gown tinged with a royal blue trim and a bouquet of red roses completes the bridal party. Cover the tables with blue table cloths and white china. Red accents include the folded napkins with a tiny flag and blue carnation inside. The centerpiece design should include red and blue carnations with a white vase.
