Vera Wang recently launched her Spring 2013 Bridal Collection and every single piece in the collection was red! That’s right folks, all red with not a single speck of white or ivory to be seen anywhere.
According to Cheryl Wischover of fashionista.com, this sudden glut of redness might have something to with “China’s ever increasing influence in the fashion world.”
In her notes to the collection Vera mentions the following:
“Beautiful dream. The symbolism of Red. Boldly romantic, charming, protective, grand, seductive, sexy. From dahlia to scarlet, crimson and vermilion. A celebration of love.”
Whatever your thoughts, it is clear that red is going to play a big part in stylish wedding designs this year. At 88 Events, we’ve noticed more and more brides steering away from the traditional colours of ivory and white.
Of course, these will always be the most popular tones to base your colour palette on, however the weddings that will stand out the most will be the ones where the bride and groom have been more daring in their choice of colours.
So, with that in mind, here’s some ideas from 88 Events’ Hire Collection on how you can incorporate some bold and romantic red into your table styling this year.
Cherry Red Faux Silk Linen
We recently designed a great Asian wedding where the bride and groom incorporated lots of different colours. Shown below is a picture of the cake table, resplendent in our Cherry Red Faux Silk Linen:

Of course, your tables would not be complete without some stylish glassware. If you find it too daring to go with a red tablecloth or chair cover you can still subtly incorporate some red with with either of these beautiful glassware collections:
Red Blob Crystal Glass
You can hire these red crystal glasses featuring a unique red ‘blob’ design and use them as an accent colour or to highlight other colours in your table design.
A cheaper alternative to the red crystal but no less effective.
Until next time…
