Has anyone ever done this? Pictures? I’ve always imagined wearing a dark red lip on my wedding day and now that I’m shopping for jewelry I’m drawn to rose gold sets with deep red stones. But I can’t find pictures of brides wearing colored gem jewelry sets anywhere!

Buy some costume ruby jewelry and try it on with your dress. Nothing wrong with being a trendsetter.

Sorry for this awkward crop, but here was my red lip and red necklace. The necklace was a bit costume-y, but it was my stepmom’s mother’s and I felt really honored that she asked if I wanted to wear it. And in the end, I actually really liked the look! I had lots of early fall/late summer colors going on, and I felt like the red added to it all. And I love a good red lip, so it felt very natural for me to do it for my wedding! I think a dark red lip and rose gold/red gem jewelry sounds gorgeous!

I think red accents on brides are super stylish! It’s hard to find imagery of red jewellery on western brides but I could easily imagine ruby or garnet jewellery on these brides:

I LOVE the idea! I haven’t seen it anywhere other than here/pinterest. I think it’d be very unique.
I may have a slight bias — favorite color. 🙂

Try looking up Indian weddings. A westernized indian wedding is proably going to give you examples of your chosen look to pin on pinterist. Indian weddings always have color! I wore heavy gold bangles and a large gold vintage heirloom necklace with a red lip (colour pop liquid matte in Bumble-$6). We did a 20s theme, so the look really worked and bold lipstick is hot right now so you will be on trend.
What is was key to my look was a theme. I think if you are going to go bold lip you also have to do a more everyday eye make up… It’ll also help to incorporate the color with other accesories. I had gold Sandles and gold nails and gold accessories.
Could you do a red bag, red shoes and a few red blooms too?Then you’ve got a coordinating look!
I love the use of color. Do it!!!

You guys are fabulous, thank you so much for your advice and support!
leilarobs – Great idea and certainly worth a try.
Audrey2_sings – Thank you so much for posting your pic, you look beautiful! We’re planning an early fall/late summer wedding as well so it’s helpful to know it worked so well with your color pallet.
annelise210516 – Exactly! It makes it difficult to imagine against a white wedding dress but the pics you posted were very helpful.
amireyn13 – Awesome, thanks for your input!
gatsbyaffair – That’s exactly it! I’m thinking ruby red slippers, red/ rose gold nails, a bold red lip with a simple cat eye (think old Hollywood glam), etc. Still debating on hair but a partial updo with a small fascinator/ flowers would work well. We’re using a deep red as our main accent color and working with a Victorian woodland theme. I’ll try to look up westernized Indian weddings as inspiration. Thank you!

I think the red looks amazing. I am kind of biased because I am also having red shoes and accessories but red lips, nails and jewellery would be fabulous and a break from the norm.
