Red Invitations for Weddings and Events

View red invitations for the bold bride, in rich scarlet or merlot wine. Red is the color of love, in China, it is the color of prosperity and joy. Red symbolizes life and vitality and is the warmest of all colors. We offer two DIY options to make invitations: print using our templates in any shade of red, or make layered announcements with our red cardstock and embellishments.

Print your red invitations using our templates

Our invitation templates for MS Word can use any background color, just replace the page color with any hue you desire. We used a deep red wine and cherry red page color, shown below, for inspiration:
