Monday Mood Board: Garnet Red & Gorgeous – Colours for your Wedding
Hello, lovely people. I do hope that you had an enjoyable weekend? Today’s dose of wedding wonderful comes in the form of our ‘Monday Mood Board’ feature, and is proving to be a true beauty.We’re taking inspiration from Garnet Red hues and vivid, vibrant reds for a little pop of colour to bring to this Autumnal morning.
Are you on the look out for wedding colours to inspire? Well, we’re here to show you exactly why you should be falling in love with red again for a colourful, Autumn, Winter or Valentines wedding.
Bloomin’ Beautiful Bouquets
Choose a classic, yet timeless elegant theme by selecting white, and gold, then to add a little pop of colour into the mix, a gorgeous Garnet, deep red or burgundy. Keep it simple and forgo the cheesy bright colours for your sensual and stylish day.
For larger than life blooms we’re thinking Hydrangea and Peonies – For a rich contrast, mix plenty of foliage into the mix. Don’t be afraid to try something new when it comes to your floral styling, a few succulents and ever-greens thrown into the mix and tadaa! You have an unstructured, but simply beautiful ethereal bouquet, a gorgeous winter touch to your bouquet.

Red might rarely make its way into a wedding colour palette, but when it does it looks pretty beautiful! I’m sure you will agree?
Red, and shades of red can be extremely eye-catching when it comes to cakes. Painted accents, chic metallic hints and three-dimensional floral accents, this dessert might (just) be too pretty to eat. Add a little shimmer to your cake design with a luxe gold leaf or a gold icing. After all, your cake can be a focal point and a great way to double up on both a delicious treat and styling for your big-day.
A firm favourite at The Wedding Affair? A lush red velvet cake. Delish! A red velvet cake surely is a must for your Valentines inspired do.

In regards to bridal frolics, fashion and your maids’, using this colour will have the best impact when used sparingly in your wedding. Flowing red dresses are always a way to the heart, matching bridesmaids bouquets or even the use of multi-coloured gowns for your favourite ladies would be a beautiful way to make the red pop, but subtly and elegantly. The best way possible.
It’s easy to over-do it with a colour, so stripping it back and adding a few main elements will really tie the colour of your day together, without being too much. Complete your ladies look with a bold red or nude lip.
