If you thought a deep red color palette was too bold for a spring or summer wedding, think again. While the pretty hue may be associated with the holiday season, there's no reason to avoid it for a warm-weather fête — especially if you pair it with a neutral color like camel.

For summer weddings, keep your celebration light and airy by playing up the nude shade, while fall and winter brides should boast more reds to create a warm and inviting atmosphere.

Floor-length bridesmaid dresses in a pretty crimson shade are fit for a formal affair, but if you're saying "I do" outdoors, consider a flirty knee-length floral number for your girls. And since a versatile color like camel is so easy to incorporate throughout your wedding décor, dream up exciting ways to add pops of red: Complement a camel-colored runner with bright red centerpieces or mix muted accessories with flashy red options, like statement-making earrings.

No matter how you decide to pair the two shades, the color palette guarantees a stylish wedding.
