Reds have been an up and coming feature at weddings this year and being such a bold colour is hard for some people to vision how to pull of using reds in a wedding. Don’t fear! The Pink Frosting Wedding Shop has come up with some unique ideas on how to pull of the bold reds at a wedding. Poppy red is a seductive shade and is the essence of romance. The best thing about red is it can be teamed with so many different colours and make a different statement each time.
