Aqua and red wedding inspiration,wedding colour palette
Light up your reception with a crimson “Classic” matchbox
Wedding Favours : Framed windows allow a look-see into these fanciful paper packets filled with jelly beans. The envelopes are inexpensive and easy to customize; all you need is a craft punch and rubber stamp. Look for narrow ribbons in a variety of patterns to tie the tops; as long as the colours coordinate, they’ll go nicely together. Set out the favours on a table for guests to help themselves — they will form a colourful and inviting display.
Wedding Program : Set the tone right from the start by greeting guests at the ceremony with aqua and red programs suspended from every seat. Loose pages rest inside the pocket of an oversize blue tag; its damask-style pattern is added with a rubber stamp. The order of events and names of the wedding party are spelled out in two-color type, and red cord loops through the tag’s grommet for hanging. Colorful seat cushions underscore the red accents.
3 Wedding Guest Book : Tailor a guest book to your wedding style. Each of these starts with the same blank journal. Clockwise from left: Bookcloth-wrapped covers leave the red spine to peek out. The second book is covered entirely in paper and stamped with a monogram; satin ribbon serves as a bookmark. The third is left uncovered but accented with a felt band and big red button. What do guests use to write their well-wishes? Bright-red pens, of course.
