There’s nothing like a few touches of pink to bring a hefty dose of girlishness and romance to your wedding day. Whether you choose to go for a flirty pale pink or a bolder shade of this same color, there’s no doubt about it: Pink is the one color that’s guaranteed to add charm and coziness to just about any wedding reception.
To bring some girly and romantic touches to your pink-themed wedding, it’s particularly important to focus on the cake, the dress, the bridesmaids’ dresses as well as the party favors. Indeed, these are types of accents that will automatically set the tone for your special day.
While some brides don’t mind donning a pink dress, other traditionalist ladies can easily slip into their typical white wedding attire while the bridesmaids dress up in frilly, girly pink frocks. For a more romantic touch, try to go for knee-length and sleeves bridesmaid dresses with flared, flirty hems. Of course, there’s no reason why the groom shouldn’t get into the spirit of the occasion as well by donning a pink tux- or at the very least, a pink shirt or tie with a black tux.
As far as the dessert buffet goes, you can very easily infuse a romantic touch by going for decadent cupcakes with pink icing in the form of bows. Sprinkles, of course, are the ultimate girlish accessory by excellence so ask your baker to decorate your wedding cake and cupcakes with a generous amount of sprinkles. If you don’t want to serve cupcakes at the reception, bear in mind that you can very easily hand them out as wedding favors.
Another easy way to bring a girly and romantic touch to your pink-themed wedding is by playing with lights: soft pink and lavender lights will not only bring an ethereal glow to the wedding party, but they’ll also create the ultimate loved-up atmosphere, especially during slow dances and songs.
Table settings and centerpieces should also be selected with extreme care: an overly sophisticated setting will definitely distract from the girly and romantic theme, but try not to go overboard either. Helium balloons and confetti belong to kid’s birthday parties: you want to be girly, not childish, so opt for pink napkins or pink, black and white flower arrangements.
Whether you’re still a rose, frills, hearts and flowers girl at heart, or if you simply associate the color pink with everlasting love there’s no denying the fact that a pink-themed wedding can be ultra-glamorous and deeply romantic. Extremely popular in California, pink themes are very easy to adopt, especially since this color goes well with a variety of other hues.
Indeed, whether you want to take a leaf out of Anne Hathaway’s book and go for a pale, pink-tinted gown or if you want to dress your bridesmaids up in typical Californian pink, this color will certainly infuse charm and uniqueness to that special day when you’ll finally say “I do” to the love of your life.
In fact, the new wedding trend among celebrities is donning a pink gown to walk down the aisle. From Anne Hathaway to Reese Witherspoon, pink wedding dresses are constantly splashed over the pages of wedding magazines. Understandably, though, some brides can be quite hesitant about donning a pink frock. In this case, why don’t you go for a whitish gown with just a pink haze thrown over it in the likes of Anne Hathway’s wedding frock? More daring brides, on the other hand, can go for an all pink frock but bear in mind that the shade of pink that you select should mirror your personality and sense of style. For example, if you don’t stand on ceremony and if you’re planning a more informal ceremony then you can very easily go for a hot pink. This particular shade is perfect for strapless or short wedding dresses.
On the other hand, if you want to send off a demure, formal and romantic vibe, it’s best to opt for a paler, baby pink, a shade which goes marvelously with A-line or straight, Victorian gowns. Pale pink is also extremely suited to puffy, Princess-like gowns with sweetheart necklines and lace sleeves.
As far as your decoration goes, there’s no lack of ways for you to infuse pink into your wedding. Think pink linens, pink wedding favor boxes or pouches or even pink champagne for the toast. If you’re going for pink place settings, it would be best to select clear or crystal cutlery.
Of course, since pink wedding cakes are amongst the most popular ones on the market, there’s no doubt that you’re going to find something that you want. If you want to stand out from the crowd though, don’t hesitate to color block your cake. For example, a particularly dramatic look would be to select pink for the first tier, pale blue for the second tier and pink again on top. Ask your baker to enhance the overall cake with some pink and yellow sugared roses and you’ve got the most unique wedding cake ever!
