Colours to Compliment Pink Weddings

Pink has always been a popular wedding colour, especially for those girly girls and princess brides out there. When choosing colours to compliment pink you could start with your favorite colour, the colour of a certain flower you must have at your wedding or even what colours suit your grooms and bridesmaids skin tones.

Every colour comes in different shades and tones so you are bound to find one that will be perfect for you. If you want you’re wedding to warm and playful you should use neutral colours or other warm colours combined with hot pinks such as ivory, cream, soft purples and pale pinks. Remember with warm colours little is more and you don’t have to over do it small doses are often more effective then large doses when it comes to bright, strong colours. Balloons, table decorations, bridesmaid dresses, cravats or the waist coat of the groom along with ribbons on the flowers or even the cake would be the perfect examples of where you could use an accent colour along to compliment the pink and tone it down it to create that perfect passionate wedding theme.

Pink can work amazing not only as the primary colour at a wedding but also when being used to brighter darker or cooler colours. Using a touch of pink to colour schemes such as medium and dark blues, lime or apple greens and purples will add some brightness with out darkening and over powering the colours. Adding shades of pink to certain neutral colours will not only add a splash of colour but will add sophistication in some cases, for example using pink as the accent colour to all shades of grey, ivory’s, creams, black and even navy will also give you a gorgeous expensive looking colour scheme for a sophisticated wedding.

Colours to Avoid in a Pink Wedding

One persons colour clash is another persons exciting combination, if you want a bright fun energetic wedding them by all means pair pink with which ever colour you want whether it be lime green or bright orange but for that classy, elegant wedding look most of us dream of it would be best to opt out of pairing pinks of any shade whether it be baby pink or deep pink with shades of orange, green or red.

Pink Wedding Decorations

Decorations besides the bride of course are a fabulous way to make a wedding have everybody saying ‘wow’. The perfect decorations should feature throughout your day displaying only the colours you have chosen for your theme. From pink flowers, balloons and confetti through to pink chair covers, ribbons and candles for day and pink napkins, table cloths, sparklers and centre pieces for night decorations can really make a wedding inviting and look stunning. Besides the usual decorations everybody thinks of its always nice to think hard and add personal touches that mean things to you to your decorations.

Pink Wedding Favours

Favours are the perfect way to say thank you to all your guests for attending your special day and will give them something they can keep to remind them of your wedding. Finding favours in pink will be an easy job but if you wish to give favours that don’t match your colour scheme you do have the choice of favour boxes and organza bags that come in all colours. Putting favours in small boxes or bags means you can give your guests anything you wish in any colour and they won’t detract from your pink theme as they will be concealed but also beautifully presented. Another option is to introduce that accent colour again whether it is white or lilac it will still fit in with your colour scheme and you may have more option when it comes to buying the favours. Traditionally favours were sugared almonds, chocolates wrapped in foil or candy of some sort. That would work well with having an pink colour scheme as there are candy and foil covered chocolates in abundance pink in colour, however if you plan to give something your guests can keep what about miniature bubbles, picture frames, stationery or even lottery ticket holders which has become very popular, these all come in almost all colours to fit in with any wedding. For the kids activity books and jars filled with strawberry bonbons or pink hearts would be a great idea and keep them amused through the speeches, perfect.
