Wedding Colors I Love | Shades of Red + Aqua!

Hello, color lovers! Today my love for the bright + bold continues with this pretty palette of shades of red and aqua. Fun, festive, and all kinds of pretty......these are the sort of colors that I love to see side by side. Because what's not to love? It's a color combo like no other. Plus you can incorporate all kinds of quirky and unique ideas! Like funky bow ties for the guys, and super fun accessories for the gals!

I don't know about you, but bunting has always had a soft spot in my heart. And so that's why I'm loving the idea of stringing some festive flags on the wall for a fun backdrop. Looking for a way to add character to your day? Why not consider paper pinwheels for decor? Because nothing says fun like pretty pops of color! So what do you think? Might you consider a fun and festive color palette like this? And if so... how might you make it yours?

I've loved these colors together for quite sometime. They are so bright and cheerful, but they also remind me of the ocean. I love the ocean.


Such a great contrast! That cherry red against the aqua is such a delicious combination!

Pastille reds combined with aqua make for really retro designs, I love using these combinations of colours with big bold badges and illustrations.

This is so cool because these aren't colours you'd usually expect to see together! But I feel they work quite well, it looks quite retro! Wonderful imagery too!
