Hi Jane!

The red and yellow palette is very unique! It takes a confident couple to pull off that combo. It’s not a common pairing, which can, in fact, be a reason for your wedding to be a standout. The colors can actually allow you to play with themes.

Bright, poppy red mixed with lemon yellow creates a summery feel. Flowers you can play with are roses, gerberas and button mums. You can even add real red apples (remembers those small ones that can easily fit in your palm) and lemons for your table centerpieces.

If you opt for darker hues, you can channel a different season: autumn. Mix the yellow with the deeper shade of wine red and add chocolate brown and you’ve got a fall theme. You can even add orange for a midway color. A dose of champagne gold will bring a subtle and elegant touch to your hues.

You will also have a great time thinking of the flowers for your bouquet. Flowers like roses and gerberas can be a good combo.

Red roses and yellow calla lilies can be another elegant choice.

    How do we combine Royal blue and Purple since it’s not a usual combination? Can we combine two dark colors? 🙂 Do we need to adjust or put white color for the flowers and the silver lining for the others?
