Celebrating the Year of the Dragon in Texas: Red Color Palettes

Some couples like to pick a theme that will help them remember special facts about the year they got married. For 2024, the Chinese zodiac is the Year of the Dragon, which means many couples are looking to Chinese weddings for inspiration.

We are seeing an increase in couples using red for 2024 Texas wedding color palettes. In Chinese culture, red symbolizes fertility and luck and is believed to ward off negative energy. (Who doesn’t want to start their marriage with these things?) These ideas blend well with Western culture, which uses red to symbolize passion, love, and romance. Red in the color scheme for a wedding seems to be a no-brainer. Here are some of our favorite color palettes featuring this popular color for 2024.

Creating That Sweet Romance Featuring Red

Showing Off Texas and American Pride Featuring Red

For those who are deeply proud of their Texas heritage, bringing in the colors from our state flag (also the colors of the United States flag) is the perfect way to go. Not only that, but these bolder colors tend to inspire a positive vibe. We suggest using red as the dominant color with splashes of blue as an accent offset by white. The white will give your guests’ eyes a break from the bold colors without losing that inspirational feel. Combine this with cowboy boots, plenty of plant life, and rustic decorations, and you have the perfect homage to history and your budding life in the Lone Star State. 

  • Red
  • Blue
  • White
  • Hints of silver or gold can help make these colors pop
