Classic Red Flowers for Your Wedding

The color red immediately reminds us of love. It is a bold color for the passionate. Here are some popular red flowers: roses, peonies, amaryllis, dahlias, tulips, carnations, and gerbera daisies. For some inspiration for using a red flower color theme, check the pictures below.

You can use a number of different color combinations with red. Some of the more modern combinations are red and teal, red and orange, and red and magenta. For more classic combinations, try red and black, red and white, red and brown, red and jade green, and red with a touch of gold. Don't feel limited to just those suggestions, though. There are so many combinations you can use with red!

Truly amazing red flowers for wedding. Last month, arranged my sister’s wedding at one of awesome venues around. Ordered flowers from a local best florist who did Flowers Delivery very quickly and we did beautiful decorations.
