Looking for some inspiration-my wedding is 7-6-2019. Me and FH have both been previously married, both courthouse wedding. First Time for both of us to put together a ceremony and reception. I am thinking about a red dress for the wedding, I look pretty good in red,and I like the wow factor if it. If I go with the red dress I'm not sure what color or colors for the bridesmaids. Any ideas ladies? Any tips on beautiful red dresses wanted too!

    Your bridesmaids could wear black, yellow or yellowish-orange, dark blue, or khaki.

    My MOH bought a navy blue dress when I was planning to wear red. Sadly, I got scammed and my red dress was horrible, and I wound up with an ivory dress from David's.

    The navy MOH dress is still lovely. It's not one of my wedding colours but she doesn't have to match the napkins, after all.

    A navy would be pretty. So would white and gray. With the date a red, white and navy can be fun.

    I was thinking the same with the red white and blue, Navy is definitely one of my top choices. I was worried that I should have more "summery" colors though

    I'm definitely feeling pressure to pick something, I'm stuck on colors and feel like I cant move forward with other things until I have my colors!

    I love the idea of red, white, and navy, but if you are concerned about lacking a summery feel you could consider putting the maids in blush or pink to compliment your red dress.

    When I think of red wedding dresses I immediately think of the wedding in the movie About Time

    I think ivory dresses would be gorgeous with red. I mean, C'mon... You're wearing red so why can't they wear ivory?

    Hey a date twin! White would look pretty neat! Kinda an alternative spin to traditions.

    YES, to a red dress! My sister wore a deep red dress (which was gorgeous) and we bridesmaids wore black. Sophisticated. I think she had navy and ivory flowers in the bouquets for more color.
