Neutral, soft palettes tend to rule the wedding world, but if you want a bolder hue for your day, look no further than lusty, lovely red. We've paired it with white for a clean, crisp look that lets the color of love take center stage, and just a few pops go a long way. Here are some ideas to get your wheels turning for your own event!

Since flowers are usually a big part of any wedding, they provide the easiest way to incorporate color into your decor.

A red galvanized bucket is a sweet way to bring a pop of red to your table; we filled ours with white ranunculus flowers. And instead of the ubiquitous (and expensive!) red rose, we love the look of red tulips. Popped inside a plain white vessel and set on a white tablecloth, their vibrant red color is absolutely cheery.
 
 
Set a pair of charming heart-shaped floating candles inside a shallow dish as an accent next to (or instead of) a centerpiece, or on a cocktail table or bar.
 
 
Place settings are easy to put together using any red patterned fabric and ribbon. Simply use the fabric as napkins for your table, and roll up and tie with the ribbon.
 
 
In-season strawberries are a fantastic way to get some red into your wedding day. We set them on a tray, poked them with bamboo skewers, and added flags with guests' names to the tops.
 
 
Keep the color scheme going with your favors - glassine bags or red and white bags filled with matching gumdrops are super budget-friendly and cute, to boot!
 
 
For a dramatic and unexpected dessert, finish off your event with a red velvet wedding cake or a table of red velvet cupcakes. Delicious and decadent!
