Surprisingly, you don’t often see red roses at weddings. It’s challenging to incorporate into a larger color palette. Here is an example of a real wedding that uses red very tastefully — letting it truly stand out as bold and powerful while remaining elegant and tasteful.

The Peabody Hotel in Memphis is perfect for red. The iconic sign outside aside, the decor elements inside remind us of being in Seville where red belongs.


The red table cloth and chair covers are muted with the gold runner and candle lit elements.

Tasteful…and tasty

Simple, but it ties everything together.
