When it comes to wedding decor, red is hardly the first color choice that may come to mind. So we rounded up 35 chic red wedding details, (inspired by a famous scene from a certain show that comes back this weekend!) that prove this bold shade deserves a spot in your big day!

Above, this may not be your standard wedding alter but it sure makes for a good case for using ladders! 

Is there anything quite like sipping on a chilled glass of mint-garnished watermelon tequila on a hot summer’s day? We didn’t think so, and if your wedding falls in August, consider making this your signature drink.  

Deck the outdoor wedding venue with vintage lanterns draped in rich, red florals.  

Go for a bare red velvet cake decked with an abundance of fresh, red summer berries!

For the fearless bride who isn’t afraid to make a statement, we’re all for a dress as wow-worthy as this.

Consider this our dream wedding altar. Comprised of a bounty of vibrant greens and statement florals, this colorful mix is proof that when it comes to flowers, more is more.

Mix and match red paper lanterns for the backyard fete to instill a dynamically bold contrast to the decor. 

This red ombre cake is the perfect way to squeeze in a little color on the dessert table. 

This dreamy arrangement makes up for the lack of elements on the table, capturing the eye with its deeply powerful color palette.

Who doesn’t love macarons? The red velvet variety will fit right in with the thematic decor plus, they’ll lend an effortless hint of elegance to the table as well. 

Filter a predominately red bouquet with florals that come in an assortment of blush tones such as ranunculi, and add in leaves of eucalyptus for the filler.  

Match the groom’s wine-colored jacket to the bride’s florals by scattering in similarly shaded pieces into the bouquet, such as roses or dahlias. 

This garden-arch inspired alter steals the spotlight, establishing a luxuriously elegant focal point no wedding should be without. The gold gilded chairs are a major plus. 

Skip the sparklers and send the bride and groom off with oversized heart-shaped balloons instead. Bonus: they make for one truly spectacular group photo!

Top the typical naked, wedding cake with bright summer berries and opt for a berry marmalade frosting for an extra pop of color. 

For the outdoor wedding that is sticking to the standard green and white color duo, utilize red flower petals to designate a makeshift aisle. 

A deep red bouquet of fall florals make for an ideal complement to an ivory dress. 

Outfit the dessert table with red velvet shooters. Layer red velvet cake with spoonfuls of cream cheese frosting for a simply delicious post-dinner treat. 

Accentuate the neutral and earthy palette of a beachside venue by incorporating a bright pop of red into the decor. The modest florals that double as the tables’ centerpieces help establish a defining element within the setup. 

A red wedding dress practically requires a bouquet of eucalyptus. Bonus point for incorporating the green into the hairdo!

For the outdoor summer wedding, consider a blood orange and gin sizzle mix, with a delicious blackberry garnish!

Forget something blue. Red statement shoes are what weddings were missing.

Filter in a statement floral in a slightly lighter tone – the blush dahlia in this particular bouquet – to downplay the intensity of an exclusively red arrangement. 

Send guests off with a little token of your love… these heart-shaped lollipops come to mind.

Sneak in a mix of wax flowers and bright red ranunculi to lend a softer touch to the typical bridal updo.  

Consider it a sneak peek of things to come! We love the idea of a red envelope paired with a more muted invite inside. 

In lieu of the typical centerpiece, opt for a hanging display of florals instead! These red carnations are simply perfection.

Going for the more subtle pop of red? Opt for a delicate shawl in a shade that matches at least one of your bridal florals. 

Upgrade the flower girls’ basic white dress with bold satin bows for a major statement. 

Having a difficult time picking out your place cards? Match them to the table’s centerpiece!

Apparently, mulled wine popsicles are a thing and they most definitely belong in a red wedding. Note the fragrant addition of the cinnamon sticks in lieu of the standard wooden popsicle sticks.

We can’t get enough of unfrosted cakes paired with bright, statement flowers! Sprinkle in some greens and at least one bright-toned floral when decking the cake. 

Dress the groom with a boutonniere in a complementary color tone – ranunculi encouraged!

While this regal shade may err on the side of stealing the spotlight, it also provides quite a compelling contrast to the bride decked in white.

No one should be exempt from wearing a flower crown, four-legged friends included!
