With her crimson face paint, vivid beaded jewelry and brightly colored robes, a Masai bride is a sight to behold. Red is considered a sacred color in the East African country of Kenya, where the native tribe’s people paint their bodies with a vibrant ochre paste for special ceremonies, including milk drinking, meat eating, warrior shaving—and marriage. “Lots of cultures view red to be lucky or special in some way,” notes Megan Garmers, founder of MG Hair and Makeup, who says that many brides like incorporating the serendipitous shade by way of floral accents, lipstick or even the bridesmaid dress color.

Escort cards are extremely easy to personalize and an excellent way to bring in your wedding day colors -- from calligraphed seating cards set atop a textured linen to apples tagged with each guest's name or small personalized bundles of lavender tied off with string. Other ways to display escort cards: Pin them to a clothesline, post them on a board covered in color-coordinated ribbon, or incorporate them into your cocktail hour using personalized stirrers tagged with guests' names.
