Ask Kate: Unlucky Colours

August 6, 2013

Kate Thompson has been offering heart-felt advice and sparklingly different wedding inspiration for ten years. She is married with two children, and often features in the national press. With her warm and caring nature and off-beat sense of humour, she'll answer every question with knowledgable insight and understanding to help and inspire or simply restore your peace of mind.


I’ve chosen red and ivory as my wedding colours. My friend now tells me that red and white – near enough to ivory – are unlucky together. I have bought red dresses for the bridesmaids. What should I do?


Personally I don’t hold much belief that colours can be ‘unlucky’. The only superstition I’ve ever heard of with red and white is that it is unlucky to combine red and white flowers. So, in your flower arrangements, perhaps stick to simple ivory or red instead of mixing them.

It’s a great colour scheme – stick to it!
