White dress. Silver heels. Pink roses. These are the images that come to mind when most brides start planning their special wedding day. Elegant flowers with light colors all around brighten the mood and elegance of the event.

However, there are many other color schemes and themes that can be used to make your wedding POP.

Ever thought of a black and red wedding?

Deep red roses draping down the wedding arch. Black fabric covering the tables with black place settings on top. The entire table lit by candles at the center with red and white roses can add a ghostly, but elegant look to the event. Even adding bits of silver or white accent to enhance the vibe of the decorations.

As for the attire, imagine all bridesmaids dressed in red. The bride walking down the aisle in a slimming black dress with all members of the bridal party holding crimson red and white roses to match the decor.

This darker, Halloween-like wedding theme may not be your typical wedding. However, in the heart of the fall to winter months, this is a great way to have an elegant and unique touch to your special day.
