How to make your wedding absolutely gingertastic

How to make your wedding absolutely gingertastic

Being wildly proud of your quite literal ginger roots, it’s no surprise you want to inject some of that hard-earned ginger pride into your wedding day. It’s a day that revolves around you (oh, and that person you’re marrying), so you should call the shots.

And if those shots happen to be having lots of cute and quirky nods to your gingerness, then so be it.

We’ve put together some of the best ways to make your wedding gingerful. Some are subtle ginger references, whereas others are outright extravagant. Mix and match as you wish, or go all out and totally gingerfy your whole wedding – the possibilities are endless!


Bouquet and general wedding flowers

These Alstroemeria, commonly called Peruvian lilies, add a delicate hint of gingerness to your bouquet, buttonholes or table flowers. Combine with lots of greenery for dramatic impact!


Cocktail hour

Serving cocktails to your wedding guests? Give a ginger hint by offering up an orange-flavoured or coloured tipple, such as Aperol Spritz, or maybe a classic Dark & Stormy, made with rum and ginger beer.


Arrive in style

Hire an orange car to arrive at your reception. No one will expect it!


The Dress




Whether you go laid-back goddess or all-out Disney princess, a delicate pale orange wedding dress is alternative to the traditional white gown, yet also extremely complementary of your red hair. If anyone can pull it off, it’s a redhead.

You’re a ginger from your red head right down to your toes, remember?




Amber jewellery is such a perfect match for red hair shades. The stone is deep and rich in orange colour, and multi-tonal just like your ginger locks.




A subtle hint to your gingerness could simply be freshly glossed orange nail polish – cute and understated.


Bridesmaid duty

Redheads keep great company (as in, other redheads) so it’s no surprise to anyone if we choose fellow gingers to be part of the bridal party.

Failing that, keep things gingerful with orange dresses for your bridesmaids.


Matching orange ties

The Tie Store

Keep the theme flowing through the whole bridal party with orange ties.


Wedding songs


Either add to your playlist or ask your wedding band to play a song that features lyrics about red hair. The White Stripes’ ‘Fell in Love With a Girl’ or Amy Winehouse’s ‘Valerie‘ always go down well with a crowd!


Topping the cake


Because everyone wants to be turned into an intricately hand-painted piece of porcelain. If not, then what’s the point of getting married at all?




Unleash a cloud of orange petals for your confetti. It’s the perfect nod to your red hair, and extra points to you if you manage to match them exactly to your ginger hair shade!


Your red hair…duh
