HUNTED : { Wedding Inspiration : Pink Wedding Palette }

For once I’m going to dispense with the pre-amble and direct you straight to one of my childhood cartoon heroes :

Wedding Colours Pink Ideas

In his words …. thiiiiiiiiink pink.

Yes, this is a hunt for all things pink. Brides, without reverting too much to gender stereotypes, if you are the one driving a pink palette preference just double check that your groom is comfortable with it. Metrosexual dressing has been around for years now, but if your fella ain’t comfortable at the thought of a pink tie, maybe consider how you can reduce the rose.

To help you on your way, inspiration is hunted below.

…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….

Wedding Inspiration Pink Theme Scheme

…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….

Brides, unless you find yourself inspired by Katie Price and/or My Big Fat Gypsy wedding, you may not want to wear a vibrant pink dress. That’s not to say you couldn’t sneak some pink into your attire. Why not opt for pink shoes under your dress as seen here. Or, to keep it even more subtle, a pink shade of nail varnish. If your use of pink is more in the apricot spectrum, but you want to funk it up a bit, take inspiration from this design with a gold sparkle.

Wedding Inspiration Pinks Flowers Floral

…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….

When it comes to flowers you have no shortage of choice in the pink spectrum.

If you like things bright, you can’t get much more vibrant than a pink gerbera (see my hunt for pink gerberas  here ). Now you see my point re: clearing the colour with the Groom first, although the gerberas in glass demonstrate a little more subtelty [ Gerbera images here and Google Images ].

You can find many shades of pink roses. For a quintessentially elegant choice, opt for a dusky pink. Without any additions, a ball of them together will give you vintage elegance [ image : here ]. For a more saturated look, opt for a medley of pinks, whites and coral tipped roses. The ivory satin bouquet tie to finish in the image above is a nice touch. [ image : here ].

Another beloved flower choice is the peony (see my hunt for coral peonies here). Amongst all the flowers I’ve featured on this site, it seems to be the most popular. Whether you go for the warm coral version above, as a loosely tied bouquet or give a single bloom to your bridesmaids, the result will be stunning [ images : here and here ].

Wedding Decor Tables Details Pinks

…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….

Your choice of decor will be dependent not only on the shade of pink you’ve gone for, but also the location and theme of your day overall.

If you’ve got outdoor elements to your day, you could jazz up pain chairs by pink chair ties, inspired by these vivid pink ones from True Expression Photography.  If your wedding includes an outdoor path and your florist has a few thousand spare flower petals and some giant vases you could replicate the look above. It’s astonishing work, if perhaps not practical for every couple [ image : here ].

When it comes to table decor, if you’re at the subtler end of the spectrum take infleunce from the combination of natural dusky tones and wood of the beach setting [ image : here ].

Or, if you’re having a Winter wedding, use pink as a brightener. The mixture of natural hessian, vibrant pink and a fircone placeholder is highly complementary [ image : here ]

If you want decor with a strong accent of pink, go the whole hog and have the table cloth a bright shade. In the afternoon tea scene above  it’s complemented by vintage china, pale pink roses and pastel pink water tumblrs [ image : here ].

Finally, if you have a rustic, country vibe or bohemian feel to your day take turqouise tinted or clear mason jars and insert your blooms. Again, the combination of white with the pink brings a soft wistful quality to the shade [ images : here and here ]

Wedding Scheme Pinks Eating Drinking Ideas

…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….

Where the fun really kicks in, is when you get to planning food and drink.

Welcome your guests with a pink cocktail, like this refreshing looking one above [ recipe found here ].

Combine your pink favours with place cards, escort style, as per this French macarons idea. Macarons are also absolutely ridiculously delicious [ image : here ].

Can you have a pink wedding cake? Of course you can. And if you want yours in light waves, you can count on Martha Stewart to show you how to make it. Or, you can just have a load of cake pops in a variety of pink decorative forms [ image : here ]. You could also whip up some fruit-topped, pink-iced cupcakes like these ones here to treat your guests.

Wedding Inspiration Ideas Pinks …………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….

Finally, get creative with the little details. Maybe you want to go overboard and cover the place in pink balloons [ image : here .] Or perhaps you want to get thoughtful and provide flip flops for your ladies once their heels start to hurt [ available from Little Wedding Ideas ].

So, we reach the end of the hunt for inspiration for a pink wedding palette.

To quote the feisty lady of pop, Pink – “I was starting not to like the colour anymore, but now I have a reason to love it again.”

Amen Pink. Amen.

Are there any pink images that stand out for you above?

Or is it too girly / My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding for your tastes?

  1. Pink is my signature color. The hot pink shoes absolutely rock my world! I wish I had thought of that when I got married. Great post!

    • I keep coming across ideas that I wish I’d discovered before my wedding too … oh well I guess I’m just paying it forward for another couple to enjoy! – thanks for the comment – did you have a pink palette for your wedding ?

      • You bet! Of course, I was very young and it was almost ten years ago, so weddings were still quite traditional. I wish so much I had been more brave. I had just one attendant and she wore a rosey pink gown. Isn’t it funny how we grow in to our own style as we get older?
