Wedding Inspiration: Guide to All-Pink Wedding Decor
The colour pink represents caring, compassion and love, and perfectly encompasses the emotions binding the happy couple. It’s no wonder that many are drawn to the idea of an all-pink wedding.
There is a myriad of pink shades that range from a delicate blush to a hot, deep colour and one is spoilt for choice. Choosing two or three complementary shades of pink will add depth and character and provide stunning visuals to your special day.
Pretty in pink
There are many ways to introduce pink for the wedding party. Although brides traditionally wear white, a more contemporary choice would be a gown in palest pink or the use of a pink accent, such as a sash. Bridesmaids will surely look pretty as a picture in pink dresses while flower girls look especially charming in all-pink or white and pink ensembles. Men can complement the females with pink flower buttons and/or pink neckties and cravats. Bouquets are a great way to get creative with the theme and many gorgeous styles can be prepared using pink blooms and ribbons.
Weddings and flowers go hand in hand. There’s a large variety of pink blooms available which lend themselves to any ambience. For a romantic vibe, there are whimsical pink flowers like the pink astilbe, roses and delicate peonies. Elegant tulips, lilies and carnations are perennial favourites while orchids are adored by all. Beautiful pink-themed cascading arrangements, flower-draped arches and pillars, and large, sculptural bunches will look fantastic against billowing white drapes, white dressed chairs and pale stone. Pink blooms and white table linens make a charming contrast and pink rose petals strewn on a white carpet runner will make the walk up the aisle picture perfect.
The colour theme can be carried on with table settings. One can have layered linens or pink runners. Chairs can be decorated with pink accents and pink-hued petals can be strewn on table tops. Any kind of atmosphere can be created with different flower arrangements. Stem glasses with single blooms are simple and elegant. Low vases, pots or baskets can be artfully filled to look dreamy and romantic while tall settings will create drama. Add tealights and pillar candles for romance and atmosphere.
In the Pink
There are several ways to carry on the pink theme. A candy table would look delightful with tall glass jars filled with pink-hued sweets. Guests can also be encouraged to take home striped pink bags of bonbons of their choice. Alternatively, wedding favours could consist of pink-iced almonds or heart-shaped chocolates in pink foil wrappers. These can be packed in boxes tied with pink ribbon.
If there’s to be a cocktail bar, make sure that pink fruity cocktails are the order of the day, and don’t forget pink rose champagne for the wedding toast.
The wedding cake will look a vision with fresh pink flowers against snow white fondant icing. If using sugar paste for decoration, then this can be tinted in any shade of pink desired.
Look back on your wedding with rose-coloured glasses and remember each detail with a memory book. Hand out pink instant cameras or set up a photo booth and get guests to paste their photos in an album along with a message. Have several pink themed props handy for a fun take on your day.
