Pink wedding have always been a traditional and classic theme, that doesn’t mean you can’t make yours special and something different. For starters, stick with muted, pastel pinks to make the color scheme subtle and easy-on-the-eye. Aside from the obvious ways to add pink to your wedding, like with accessories and your bridal bouquet, there are other creative ways for incorporating pink into your wedding. From the outfits to the lighting, we’ve compiled ideas that you’re sure to love.
1. Pink Shoes for the Bride
Hidden under all the white ruffles and lace are your favorite pink shoes. Go for high heels in a pink that matches your wedding, or, if you’re more in the mood for comfort, reach for pink sneakers instead. Every time you twirl on the dance floor, guests will get a flash of pink.
2. Pink Accents for the Groom
It may be difficult to convince the groom to do an all-pink tuxedo. The next best thing? Pink accents! A pink tie, pocket square and boutonniere goes a long way to matching the theme of the wedding. A navy suit or tuxedo works perfectly as a color combo with a pretty pale pink.
3. Pretty Pink Backdrop
Even if you’re having an outdoor wedding, you’ll want a way to decorate the backdrop. String pink flowers together to create a floral curtain. Imagine getting your wedding photos taken in front of this! It could even be a good backdrop for a photo booth at the reception.
4. Romantic Reception Lighting
Don’t forget about the lighting. Add a few of these pink mercury candle holders to every reception table. The tealights or votive candles inside will cast a romantic light as guests eat a piece of your wedding cake. You could even let guests take them home as party favors when the night is over.
5. Shades of Pink Cake
Speaking of wedding cake, skip the plain white cake and go for pink instead. For example, this slice has a pink-to-white gradient that adds a subtle connection to the pink wedding theme without being over the top. Plus, the lack of fondant will make a lot of your guests happy. Show your cake baker this design and they’re sure to pull it off.
6. Pink Wedding Favors
That pink wedding theme can also extend to the wedding favors. For instance, these “Cheers” bottle openers have a pretty pink while also being incredibly useful. Your guests will love them.
