A Vibrant Red & Aqua Wedding

This wedding theme is vibrant, fun and perfect for the bride who wants a blast of bold color. Now I must admit when I came across this color combination I was a little unsure but after finding some great examples I just fell in love with it.

I'll start with the invitation, part of a beautiful red and aqua letterpress invitation suite. The card is ecru with red text and features an aqua belly band and an aqua envelope. Bella Figura, the stationer responsible for this lovely card has rapidly become one of my favorite letterpress sites.

At your ceremony, hang these aqua and red programs over the edge of your chairs and request that your guests sign an attractive teal and aqua guest book.

At your reception, set your tables with white plates and red linen napkins tied with aqua paper bands that denote where each guest should sit. For centerpieces use small tight domes of red carnations inside white compotes. Finish the look by tying a red silk dupioni bow around the base of the compote.

Celebrate the traditional cake festivities with a non-traditional aqua and red wedding cake. And finally, say a sweet thank you to your guests with aqua and red jelly bean favors wrapped up in adorable matching paper pouches.
