Hi!!! My friend’s wedding I’m in in few weeks is red. There were a few directions the colors went in. 

First, we were going to do them with dusty miller.

Then we looked at light lime or light aqua (hydrangeas).

Then red and pinks.

We have red dresses so she ended up going with just white bouquets with the white roses with red tips.

I’m doing red and teal for August. (With a touch of dark pink in the flowers.) I think red can work for any season.

I think you can still use your red flowers. Red and aqua are a bright , spring like combination

I’m using red and Tiffany Blue exactly like the poster below you posted in that inspiration board. I’m also planning to add a couple of more Springish colors for accents.

@ItsAmandaYall:  I love your color combination and I think it would work fine for Spring. Red doesn’t have to be just fall or winter if paired with fun colors.

I personally think red is a color that can be used year around. It is the color we most associate with “Love”. As for other colors, truly the limit to all the different colors, textures and blossom types is limited only to your imagination.

I think the pictures you have of your bouquets are beautiful. I would never have guessed they were silk flowers.

I’m in Oregon so I already have red tulips blooming, my roses are starting to bud (most of them are various shades of red) and red Manmouth mums . So I think red is a spring color.

I’m doing red and black/white damask for a June 9 wedding.  Including black tableclothes….I didn’t pick when my wedding is, and I have no concerns about keeping the look that I wanted even if it isn’t spring/summery.  Most of the decor is in the reception venue anyway and there are no windows! Perfect! 🙂

Red and aqua immediately popped into my mind as well, but I could also see a red and lavender  or red and pale yellow looking awesome for spring. And just to make you feel better, I had a red green and silver wedding in July and it looked perfectly summery!
