Red isn't a common pick for weddings, since most couples would shy away from using such a bold color. However, as Pantone shows in their color picks for Fall 2013, a deep shade--like Samba--can also be a nice pick for a classy celebration.
While including red in your wedding palette may seem overwhelming, Samba is not as out-there as the usual reds. It is somewhere in between deep pink and red, making it a good option if you have second thoughts about using really bold red as your motif. Using another rich color with Samba, like purple, makes for a really stunning palette. You may also pair Samba with a neutral like cream or even gray to strike a nice balance.
