Red and Gold: Traditional Indian Wedding Colors


For many couples, the bride and groom’s culture is a big part of choosing many details of the wedding, including a color scheme. The traditional colors of an Indian wedding are red and gold. The color red in India represents power and spirituality, and represents simplicity and purity in the East. As a bride, choosing to wear a red sari is a tradition that is in place because of the emotional implications of the rich color. Bright colors represent happiness, and gold is the most popular choice to pair with rich red hues. The combination of red and gold is a dramatic one, and represents wealth and good luck- what better ideas to represent at a wedding?! There are so many ways to incorporate these traditional colors into your wedding, whether it is a red sari or bridal gown, sparkling gold jewelry, or red and gold linens.
