Red Wedding Dress is a Passionate Choice for the Saucy Bride!


Red Wedding Dresses are incredibly dramatic and bold. Wed in Red! Would your friends describe you as dramatic and passionate? If so, a red wedding dress might be just the gown for you! It is a color full of energy and heat. The perfect choice for the bold bride. Color has been popular for wedding gowns for years. I remember in the eighties looking at bridal magazines and seeing many dresses with color. Mostly they were pastel colors though. Never bold striking colors like red.

These colors became more in vogue in the mid to late nineties. Not everyone wants to marry in light colors. But red for me has always been a fiery passionate color. Think of Valentine’s day, what color comes to mind. First red followed by pink than maybe purple. Want to buy a hot red dress online?

You don’t need to go all the way through. A traditional white gown with burgundy or red embroidery is striking and is a gorgeous way of incorporating a traditional style with a contemporary flair. A red sash to match cherry-colored bridesmaid dresses is another chic way of adding color to your gown.

Seasonal & Sensational

A red wedding dress can be worn at virtually any time of year, although for western brides it tends to be worn closer to Christmas or Valentine’s holidays.

With its dark tones and rich colors, it is perfect for a winter wedding. The autumn bride can mix rich reds with harvest gold, burnt orange, chocolate brown or cream to create a stunning fall feel.

Love red but are planning a spring or summer wedding? No problem, you can use this bright, vibrant color any time of year. Red wedding dresses are always in style.

In the summer, consider using a brighter version of the color and pairing it with bold primary shades of yellow or blue. In the springtime, red wedding dresses can stand alone, or pair it with soft pinks and lavender for a breezier look.

Dramatic Flair

Many brides choose to wear red on their wedding day to show off their personal style, work with a theme, or give a nod to their heritage.
Since the color is so dramatic, it calls for an equally bold gown. Look for intricate embroidery, fitted corsetry, and gorgeous dress fabrics like taffeta and raw silk. Accent your gown with bold, stylish metallic hues like silver or gold for an elegant touch.
