Would I look good in red?

I used to think I couldn't pull off red because I had reddish hair, but it has darkened since I had babies.  I'm trying to decide what color to wear for my handfasting (pagan wedding) in September.  I'm thinking red (mostly because my husband loves red lol).

What do you think?  Could I pull off a semi-formal red dress?  Or do I need to stick with earthen tones?

  • I think red might brighten you up because ur fair skinned but you must choose the right color red, deep red with elegant makeup not apple red that can look cheap and wash you out gl and congrats on ur wedding

  • You would! Just be sure to go for a deep (blue-based) red, rather than a fire-enginey (yellow-based) red.

  • I should have said... it wouldn't be fire-engine red, it would be a fall-y red, like turning leaves or even red-black :)

    Green is my favorite color, Kathy :) I love green, and red underneath would be a nice surprise for him :)

  • It really depends on what ceremony you do, whether it's like a wedding or not. For us, this is a vow renewal. We've been married 5 years and I have found faith in that time. So we are renewing our vows, getting a wedding re-do (because our wedding day was a disaster) and renewing our love in my faith with this. Some people do handfastings as a "trial marriage", some do it legally as a wedding ceremony with a license and everything and sometimes it's what I'm doing, a renewal and consecration of our relationship in faith. I understand what handfasting is... what did you mean when you said it wasn't a wedding?

    And thanks, I guess green is just my color lol.
