… I think “brick red” is fine? Also, you don’t want to get people confused about what color you’re talking about! It’s best to be specific. Who cares how “pretty” the name of the color is?

Umm….crimson-ish? ha ha. I think of barn red or burgundy. Barn red is one of my colors and it’s pretty close.

Fire Brick

Cornell Red

Carnelian

The problem with the latter two is that no one will know what you are talking about.

I think you should just call the color what it is, theres nothing wrong with saying “brick red”, plus it saves you time having to explain the color over and over

If you like numbers and want to drive your vendors insane you can tell people the Pantone number. 🙂 Try 19-1543

 Rustic Red. Bam.

I think you’re probably going to have to say “brick red” anyhow when you try to explain it to people.

People who don’t have an art degree (like me) or understand the wedding world down to a science aren’t going to know colors the way a bride does!

We painted our door brick red and the paint color is called ‘flower pot’.  Not sure if that is any better!
