Red and white is a great combination for a wedding as it combines the red for the passion you feel for each other and the white for the purity of the love between you – talk about a romantic wedding theme.

Red and White Wedding Stationery

Wedding invitations and other pieces of wedding stationery can be quite expensive which is why I’m so glad I discovered something called PODs –┬áthese are companies that print items on demand. My favourite POD is called Zazzle and they have a great collection of wedding stationery to choose from.

As Zazzle is an online company they don%u2019t have the same overheads to pay which means they are a much more budget friendly option for your wedding stationery than some of the traditional printing companies. Zazzle are also a company that offers it%u2019s customers a 100% customer satisfaction and I have to say that I have always found their products to be excellent.

Red & White Save the Date Ideas

Zazzle offers a range of ideas to send to people besides the usual Save the Date Cards (although they have them too). Ideas include badges, magnets and stickers, let’s look at some of the ideas –

The great thing about Zazzle is that you can get not only matching save the date cards, invitations, place cards etc, but you can also get matching postage stamps for some designs and in my opinion this is a great little extra that really gets noticed.

Red & White Wedding Flowers

The first thing I think of when I think of a red and white wedding are red and white roses, but there are definitely other flowers that you can use such as poppies, orchids and lilies. Check out a few floral ideas here –

Of course you don’t have to have a red and white bouquet you could have a white bouquet or a red bouquet instead. Another option which is often used is when the bride wears white and the bridesmaids wear red the bride will carry a red bouquet and the bridesmaids a white one.

Here’s a few more wedding flower bouquet ideas for you –

Red and White Wedding Accessories

From decorating your wedding venue to ring pillows and more there are a few things that are useful to have as wedding accessories. If you’re getting married in a church then decorating the church in your colors is important. Whereas flowers is a traditional way of decorating the church sometimes this can become expensive so another alternative is to use tissue pom poms instead, like these –

If you’re getting married outside then you’ll need a small table for the signing of the marriage certificate etc and I would make sure you have a full tablecloth in red or white and then a smaller cloth in the opposite color to pop on top .

Other wedding accessories that you can use include these –
