CaroAbb :  “ I obviously have to accommodate red” — No you don’t. It’s just the floor. Lots of church floors are red. It’s nbd. Nobody is going to say “those flowers clash with the floor.”

I agree with the other pp’s post. You don’t have to accomodate red. Don’t worry about the floor.  Pick the colors that you want.

I 100% agree. One of my close girlfriends got married with the 70’s red floor. The photographer did an excellent job either getting shots minus the floor or doing black and white. They turned out beautiful and the couple did most of their pictures with bridal party and family outside. Only the ceremony was inside.

You could pick a pink with the undertone of that red (Like a warm or cool undertone)

I’d look for color inspiration by searching bouquets that have accents of red.  Orange and Yellow are bold and bright just like red so I would probably steer clear and do more subtle colors.

ETA: I am not suggesting red needs to be one of your wedding colors but the following will help you find complimentary palettes.

My church floor is red. So are a lot of churches. I’ve never in my life heard of anyone trying to accommodate a floor color. Anyways, white works well with all colors.

Blush and gold? Even a pale baby blue could complement the floor nicely…but I wouldn’t spend too much time focusing on the floor. I’m sure anything will look good.

If you have an aisle runner, precious little of the red will be showing. Even if it is, have you ever looked at a garden and said ” Wow this would be really pretty except for the red?”

I’m surprised other bees don’t understand your concern. You don’t have to incorporate the red, but you also don’t want anything clashing. It looks horrible. Think about yellow/light yellow; green; blush pink, peach, dark purple, gray, or navy.

I can totally understand your concern. I’m just way too detail oriented to ignore the bright red floor and would also want to make sure my colors complimented it as opposed to fighting against it. I think a nice dusty rose or blush with lots of ivory and gold would look nice. I really like the colors of the bouquets that a pp posted. You could do a lot with those colors.

CaroAbb : Do you mean the aisle is carpeted in red, or the entire church area? Will you be having your reception there too, or only the ceremony?

I’m wondering – if the red carpet is just the aisle, if you could use an aisle runner of another color.

CaroAbb :   Oh that is a lot of red, then.   Far more than a can of spray paint could fix.  LOL

Are you doing a celebrity theme?   Best of luck with the color scheme.  I’d probably give up and just go with black and white.
