Spice up your wedding day look with jewelry, headpieces, and shoes in the sexiest shade around.

Is red really a "bridal" color? Well, it is the color of love and passion, and many Asian cultures do consider red a symbol of joy and prosperity. The deepest shades of crimson have regal, Renaissance-era associations, while brighter shades can make an all-white wedding ensemble look peppermint stick-crisp, flirty and fun, or Joan Holloway-sexy. Whether you don the finest rubies, wear a wedding gown with red details, wrap yourself in the warmth of a romantic velvet cape, or let a pair of fire engine-red heels peek out from under your dress, you're sure to love one of these ravishing red ideas.
