The pink palette can be a bride’s best friend. From hot pink peonies to cotton candy-toned favors, get inspired by the versatility of this feminine hue.
If you want to impress guests, treat them to something truly unexpected. Serve rich and creamy strawberry shakes topped with colorful striped straws.
To avoid pink from feeling too feminine, choose a modern shade and pop in unexpected accents, which flaunt your retro spirit. (Make way for a procession of Vans coming down the aisle!)
Don’t believe in love at first sight? You’ll certainly have a change of heart when you catch a glimpse of this cotton candy bouquet of peonies.
Shots of coral and a sprinkling of raspberry come together to create a lush eye-catching bouquet.
When it comes to romantic décor, set your sights high. Hang fluffy floral petals from the ceiling of your venue to give it a whimsical vibe.
A delicate twist on a decadent confection. A lovely white fondant cake is embellished with delicate pink florettes and a pretty oversized pink bloom.
Send you guests home with favors packaged in brown bags stamped in a rosy shade.
For a stylish and far-from-frilly look, the guys sport pink ties to coordinate with their khaki suits.
There’s no doubting the power of pink to stand alone. If you invite another bright shade (here, it’s lemon yellow) into the mix, then the bouquet magically pops.
All eyes will be on the layer upon layer of rosy ruffles, which accentuate the height of this decadent dessert. For an unexpected twist, choose a cake stand with a rugged edge.
When it comes to power couples, white and pink rule. The brilliance of white is the way it takes pale pink–or any color for that matter– to beautiful new territories.
The truth is a real color story starts with the save-the-date and ends with the last detail of the wedding day. Strawberry ice cream sandwiched between two cookies will send guests happily on their way home. We’re sure of it.
Great tablescape - looks classy, yet fun and inviting.
Not just for jewelry…a lovely combination of dusty rose, gold, butter and sage makes a beautiful wedding palette. Brides, what colors are you choosing for your big day?

How absolutely soft and sweet are the colors in this bridal shower that was recently featured on Inspired by This? Mint, peach, pink and ivory wedding colors? (…sigh) Everything about this palette is pure loveliness.
We’re always fans of a cute purple succulent!
The pinata style fringe is such a fun twist on the classic wall letters!
Loving these details!
How cute are these little coasters?
And of course a perfect calligraphy favor for guests to take home!
I’m sure today’s wedding inspiration board breaks some kind of unwritten rule about color matching and palettes.
But I believe there are no hard and fast rules when it comes to your big day!
Weddings are all about mixing colors, textures, patterns, styles, traditions (and people) that you and your partner love – so don’t feel bound by rules or expectations, just find the perfect combination for you.
Yellow, red and pink together are generally not a go to color combination, but put them together in the right way and they really can look amazing.
Keep it modern with cutting edge floral design and gorgeous luxe accessories (red Louboutins anyone..?) and incorporate original vintage pieces to add an authentic feel.
- Go retro on your cake. A traditional 1950s style tiered cake with bride and groom figurine topper (there are some fantastic finds on Etsy) and fancy icing can look so retro but so right!
- Vintage pieces such as original 50s prom dresses for your bridesmaids and decorative statement items for your venue decor like stacked crockery, fun vintage books and even fab furniture pieces will really make a statement.
- Your florals can provide fab feature flashes of colorr and playing with scale can look really incredible. Oversized blooms like tree peonies and giant magnolia blooms mixed with billy balls and a hint of greenery will look really stunning.
- Finish the look with super fabulous shoes and a flash of bright lipstick.
If you happen to choose this pretty palette, I want to see photos, stat.
Nothing says spring like pink and green flora sitting sweetly side-by-side. I love this simple layout and can see it as the backdrop for a spring or summer shower or rehearsal dinner.

There are a few colors on the spectrum that I think are crowd pleasers and pink is by far one of them. It is delicate, lovely and reminds us of all things pretty. Just like this bouquet recipe designed by wedding florist Oak & the Owl Interior and Floral Design Studio.

Pink – the perpetual hot color for weddings – had begun to fall out of favor as brides experimented with more non-traditional hues like browns, grays, orange, and even black. But pink is back in a big way, and brides are incorporating the hue into their wedding cakes. Pink instantly freshens-up classic white: Tone down an all pink cake with white floral or lace details, or dress up a white cake with pink embellishments.
