    I voted that red will be fine, but if you’re shooting for a vintage look and are worried about the red, any darker shade will do.  Dark or bold lips were definitely common in that era, without necessarily being red toned.

    I don’t think it will be too bright.  I love red lips – don’t let the green dress stop you!

    I think you just have to find the right red – try a bunch of different ones. I am shooting for an “Old Hollywood” look for my wedding so I’ve tried a million different red lipsticks trying to find the right one. You might have to mix some together to achieve the perfect shade.

    My makeup trial was the same day as our engagement pics. I wore a green shirt (b/c I LOVE green- it’s my fave color)- and the makeup artist said the green shirt with the red lips looked too Christmas-y, but other people disagreed with her. Here is a pic so you can see what the green might look like with red lips. But remember, only you will know for sure what you’re comfortable with. Take pics of yourself with different shades of red while wearing the dress and show the pics to family and friends to get their opinions. You are going to look FAB, regardless!

    What about a more saturated pink? Pink would really pop against the green without looking Christmas-y.

    I wore a bright pink to my wedding (Nars schiap). You can see it in any of my recent blog posts.

    I love that color green, by the way!

    I would use a matte coral type color/browner red color.  That red is super bright.
