How To Add Pops Of Red To Your Winter Wedding


Red is the colour of love so why not incorporate this hot hue into your wedding day? If you’re a glitter gal, choose deep reds for your bridesmaids and coordinate your look with ruby jewellery. For something bold, add a pop of colour to your stark white gown by wearing red shoes and use a bright red lipstick to play up your beauty look. Nothing says romance like red roses, so include them in your centrepieces, bouquet, and boutonnieres. You can also wow your guests with small details like red velvet cake and a monochromatic candy bar.

Douglas Hannant Fall 2012

Fashion & Beauty » Wedding Dresses

Douglas Hannant started with traditional silhouettes and built upon them, playing with fabric and texture to take the bridal gown in a completely new direction. Gowns were adorned with shimmering sequins, bursts of ruffles, billowing sleeves and playful tiers. The stand-out piece for us was this unique embellished sheath with corset bodice.
