Yes and couple that with a sexy red dress so the bride feels intimidated so all eyes will be on you and the groom will ask you to dance, abandoning his bride at the alter, where you'll find out he's secretly a prince and he'll call for his helicopter and whisk you away to his Swiss chalet, just a summer home and you two will live happily ever after.
Or you can just wear red lip stick and go easy on the eyes don't make them too bright or make them stand out too much, just go light with makeup, and it'll be fine. :)

You can definitely wear red lipstick to a wedding :) Just don't wear a white dress and a veil, haha.

On the prowl, are we? I don't see why it would be an issue. Even if it was a funeral, I doubt it would be seen too terribly inappropriate. Just don't wear a wedding dress, and you're good.
You CAN do whatever you want, but you should not do anything that could possibly have the unintended effect of drawing attention to yourself and away from the bride. Is it THAT big of a deal to wear something a little more muted?
Vote 'A' - OFCOURSE you can 😕
Why wouldn't it be okay? I wasn't aware this is ever an issue.
Sure but make it as subtle as you can, ie, don't put too much on or go with a shade that really stands out.
Absolutely not it must be purple haha just kidding. Do whatever you like, make sure to hit on hot guys though they will appreciate it
You can wear anything to a wedding as long as you don't wear a wedding dress lol
No etiquette rules broken with you wearing red lipstick! :)
think you can wear that ever you want.
Whatever you think looks lovely on you. Exactly half the event is about you. :)
It's my understanding that you shouldn't try to upstage the bride. But maybe that's only if you're a bride's maid? Weddings are stupid anyway.
You are going to a wedding, why would it be weird to not to?
Yes, because red lipstick looks good
Red lipstick is the worst. But sure you can.
Yes, but just not too bright.
Why would that not be acceptable? Who cares?
who told you, you couldnt?
Why not? Depends on your complexion and what you are wearing there

All you have to do is find balance. So if you want to wear red lipstick, that's cool. Just go soft on the eye makeup. stylecaster.com/beauty/eye-makeup-bold-lipstick/ That link has some tips and ideas. I'm sure it will look awesome with your wedding dress! :)
It's cool. Red lipstick looks great on people who can pull it off. I wish I could.
My boyfriend is taking me to his friend's wedding soon, too! haha
yes of course!!! red lipstick is just a classy colour
I don't see why not. If red lipstick matches what you're wearing and goes well with the rest of your makeup, i don't see why it wouldn't be acceptable.
Yes it's acceptable but but perhaps a nude colour would be better
It really spends on the dress code or what purify your wearing
Yes, anyone can wear any colour they want
Yes of course it is, it's a special occasion and red lips are perfect. just don't go too wild with the eyes
Just out of respect for bride I would never personally wear red lipstick or any bright lipstick. Nor would I wear bright coloured clothing. I like to stay neutral for weddings.
Of course it's perfectly acceptable, just don't make it too bright that's all.
Hope you have a really lovely day at the wedding.
Wear whatever color lipstick you want, you shouldn't have to ask.
You can wear red lipstick, but that'll make you stand out. If that's what you're looking forward to doing then yes wear red lipstick, but if not go with a more natural shade of lipstick and makeup, ones that match your skin tone.
Yeah why not? It's your face xD. No one else is gonna wear it!.
Maybe a lighter shade of red but this isn't your day so tone it down
Of course! Red lipstick is ideal for special occasions.
If you look good in it and it compliments your outfit, then work it. Anyone who says red lipstick is inappropriate is a prude, it's 2016 and there's nothing wrong with looking your best.
Other than I hate red lipstick, I see no reason why not.
Yes of course. Red lipstick looks classy.
red lipstick sounds fine, but not to bright x
