Crimson and Mauve Wedding


This is a very dramatic and somewhat unusual color combo. Mauve can range anywhere from a dusty pink, to a brownish red, to almost a lilac or lavender color, and crimson of course is a true deep dark red. This bold color scheme evokes feelings of love, romance, and elegance.

There are many fun ways to play up the drama in this motif. You can try using things such as cranberries or even fresh apples as centerpieces instead of the more traditional silk flowers. I suggest that your bridesmaids dress in mauve and not red, as red is very attention grabbing and you don’t want the focus to be taken away from your own dress.

Black makes an excellent accent color, groomsmen should choose classic men’s suits in black or gray. Black hair with a few crimson red hair accessories or crystal beads will finish the look for you and your bridesmaids.
