Black and Red Wedding Reception

A great way to set up the black and red wedding theme is by placing great flower arrangements in strategic points on the waiting areas.

Whether this is a bar area or a lounge adjacent the main venue, you need to make sure that the spirit of the theme is also embedded in this waiting area, preparing your guests for the events yet to come.

For example, use different red flowers in a black vase that has a vintage look.

You don’t need to overdo it—just by placing one or two around the room will make an impact on the overall look of the area.

Note also the use of tea lights at the base of the arrangement to help bring romanticism and contrast to the vase.

A Grand Entrance Idea

Have you ever entered a room that just took your breath away?
That is exactly the atmosphere you want to create for your black and red wedding theme.

Black antique chandeliers help bring the glamour of vintage soirees and great drinks to life.

Inside the venue, the floral arrangements are short, making you guests able to see each other and talk across the tables.
Tea lights are also located at the base of the centerpieces to create that romantic feel.

To bring some glam to the venue, you can also opt to use black linen on your table settings. Black tablecloths and chair covers could be easily accentuated with red sashes and red napkin rings.

Black and Red Wedding Dress

While a traditional wedding dress is always on a brides to do list, there’s a strong trend going on

Many brides change into a second dress to party the night away in now. So, if you are game, and you want to dance in 1920s style, you could change for part of your celebration into a fun red flapper dress.

Too drastic of a change for you on your wedding day?
Wear a romantic Red wedding dress instead.
