red & aqua

I've fallen in love with this color scheme lately - just so fresh and downright cute. Might be some ideas for the rehearsal dinner? (our location has a lot of exposed brick so I threw that in there).
ps- this is my 100th post!

I too absolutely love this color scheme! After modifying my wedding colors from white, black & turquoise, to aqua, steel gray & accents of red...I finally feel at ease.

As for the rehearsal dinner, I think that the decor concerns depend upon the venue. If you happen to be working with a clean slate, I would dress your tables in a clean, crisp white linen. I would then get some clear cylinder vases & top the tables. Fill the vases with water, & fill with floating red rose petals. Wrap the vases with aqua ribbon. place hues of white & cream pillar candles around the vases & light. You sould even get some aqua & white, or red & white patterned wrapping paper or fabric & use it under your centerpieces as a runner. Hang aqua paper lanterns from ceiling for a warm, yet cool ambiance.
