Whether getting married in the winter or spring, couples looking for a bold combination of hues for their wedding's color scheme may want to consider a rather unexpected pairing – red and purple. While the tones may seem to contrast, picking the right tones will lead to a dynamic decor.
It's important to select a color scheme early into your planning so that you can include the hues in every element of your nuptials, from wedding invitations to floral arrangements to custom party favors. Because purple is a mixture of red and blue, select one hue first and then search for the appropriate shade to match with it – if you choose aubergine, pair it with a warm red. If you prefer cool maroons, match it with a blueish violet.
Couples can use purple and red as accent colors and select a more conservative hue, such as cream, to be the primary color used for linens and china, but those looking to make a more bold statement can use the two shades in every element of their wedding's decor.
