Wedding Inspiration Boards
Next on my walk through fall colors is red. I love the richness of a red apple and the shades of red I find on maple tree during fall.
While red is a color that stands strongly on its own, you can pair it with other colors. Now stay away from having a chrismasy feel to your fall wedding, pair with colors like orange, golden rod, green similar to what you would find in the fall landscape. Colors come into harmony and create a great feast for the eyes when they are not too close in value such as dark red with a pale or golden yellow. In my opinion, the darker reds like Crimson will be more representative of fall than brighter reds like tomato.
A little something about red
A stimulant, red is the hottest of the warm colors. In some cultures, red denotes purity, joy, and celebration. Red is the color of happiness and prosperity in China and may be used to attract good luck.
Other names for red
Scarlet, crimson, vermilion, carmine, maroon, burgundy, ruby, rose, madder, rouge, brick, blood red, blush, fire engine red, cinnabar, russet, rust, Venetian red, flame, Indian red, tomato.
