We are having a small ceremony (just parents and siblings) and things started off so simple. We didn’t exactly have a theme. My dress is light ivory and I have silver shoes and a silver belt, his suit is black and he will wear a silver tie, the FG dress is ivory she has silver shoes and the RB will either wear a black vest suit or a black suit.
See??? so far no color…. but since my venue is throwing in a bouquet and boutinere I decided to go with red roses (ivory seem too boring). The FG will throw red rose petals how else can I easily add in some red? do I need to? Are the flowers enough of a pop of color by themselves? They are also including a cake but I have no idea how it will be decorated.

I don’t think you need to, I think the flowers themselves are perfect.

We’re actually doing the same basic color scheme (ivory dress, gray suit, silver jewelry) with pops of red in my flowers and centerpieces. I think the flowers sound great as your infusion of red. If you’re able to influence the cake’s decoration, you could do a red ribbon around the base or red petals sprinkled on it. What about red shoes for you and red socks for your FI? It would make a really cute photo!

I did this for my wedding and LOVED it! I think the pops of red are gorgeous. Here is a pic of my small wedding party. You can’t go wrong with red.
For our reception we kept it simple-white linen with the color in the red centerpieces.

As someone who loves loves loves bright colors, I think the splashes of red are fantastic. How would you feel about your flower girl wearing red shoes? Or a red sash / something in her hair? For that matter, how do you feel about you wearing just a tiny bit of red on you? Well, you’re using a red rose bouquet, so I guess you’re covered there. But when you’re not carrying it, something else red. A silver / white gold necklace with a red pendant? A small, red-jewelled piece in the flower girl’s hair? Things that are very delicate and subtle, but that tie it all together?

@Barika: LOVE the red socks. That’s perfect and exactly the kind of subtlety I was talking about! Red isn’t at all a subtle color, so understated, unobtrusive pieces are excellent. That photo is beautiful!
