i LOVE that color combination. i’m terrible at uploading on here but if you google image “red and teal wedding” a whole bunch of great photos and inspiration boards show up.  red, teal and white look very crisp and clean. can’t wait to see how everything comes out for you. i’m hoping my Maid/Matron of Honor takes my “suggestions” and uses this color combo for my bridal shower lol.

That was my color combination and I loved it from the moment I saw it, and it looked even cooler when my entire venue was decked out in aqua and red. 🙂

I also used white as a neutral color, but that also means you have to make sure your blue is a lighter blue, lest it start looking like Fourth of July colors! (That was our big fear!)

we have red, aqua (more teal) and white as our colors. There is some black thrown in there (table cloths, a few details)too

White is my immediate reaction, it will be clean and easy to use (lots of white flowers to chose, white linens are easy to find, white plates, etc.)

I’ve since changed my color scheme, but I was going to do black, white, and light blue (in lieu of “aqua”), with “pops” of red. Here was my idea:

Beige or ivory is perfect for this – agree with above posters.

I say white.  It gives such a clean look, plus typically white things are standard, therefore cheaper 🙂

These are my colours!  I love them!

I don’t have it all worked out yet, but to make it less matchy I’m hoping to use different intensities of aqua.  And I’m going to use green as an accent colour.  And I know green is not a neutral.  However, my thinking is that since it will be present as stems and foliage in bouquets/flower arrangements and the fact that our ceremony will be in a garden (lots of green) I figure it doesn’t stick out as much as red and aqua and will blend in more as background (while still giving some variety in colour).

And the nice thing about neutrals is – you don’t have to limit yourself as much as you would with colours BECAUSE they’re neutrals.  People won’t be like, ‘oh, this tablecloth is white but this chair is black … these don’t go and their colour scheme is crazy and non-matching.’

My husband and I did teal and red and it was beautiful. The girls were in teal and had red flowers. I was in ivory with ivory roses. We did use a few touches of silver and white (well, ivory) and it was absolutely lovely!

I think a light to medium gray would be great with that color combination.
