Pink

Pink 1Silver Sparkle

Colour palette: sparkling silver, pink. thistle

Well this is the colour palette that really sparkles! It’s romantic, elegant and works at any time of the year

Décor:

  • To make the look work you need to restrict the sparkle to silver and use blush pink and thistle coloured flowers as contrast and accent
  • Like the Silver and Sparkling Pink/Gold colour palette the silver candelabra work best – and look more effective if placed on the giant mirrored stands which have been ringed with speckled silver glass/silver tea lights
  • Keep the candles and table linen snowy white
  • You can accessorize white napkins with either sparkly silver bows or single thistle or blush pink flower heads
  • Chair wraps if you are going to have them look best in either thistle or blush pink [silver sparkly ones are rather tacky!] – you can then accessorize the tables with silver vases, small bowls and tea lights filled with candles and either blush pink or thistle coloured flowers

Dine:

  • A traditional snowy white wedding cake tied with sparkly silver ribbon and accessorized with blush pink or thistle coloured flowers looks wonderful and is so classy!

Pink 2Silver and Sparkling Pink / Gold

Colour palette: silver, Gainsborough grey, sparkling pink, snow white and sparkling gold

A wonderfully romantic colour palette that uses silver/grey mixed with sparkling pink and gold

Décor:

  • The key to success with this look is to layer silver and glass accessories with flashes of sparkling pink and gold
  • The silver candelabra work best – and look more effective if placed on the giant mirrored stands which have been ringed with clear glass/silver tea lights
  • Candles and table linen should be white
  • You can accessorize white napkins with sparkly silver or pink bows
  • Chair wraps if you are going to have them look best in Gainsborough grey – you can then accessorize the tables with silver vases, small bowls and tea lights filled with candles and either snow white or pink flowers

Dine:

  • Sparkly gold and silver chocolates look elegant served on silver platters

Pink 3Whisper Pink

Colour palette: whisper pink, lavender, and thistle

One of the most stunningly romantic colour palettes that I know and which suits vintage themed weddings perfectly

Décor:

  • Use the delicate vintage crystal vases to display bouquets of whisper pink, lavender and thistle flowers
  • The antique silver candelabra suit the mood of this palette best – particularly if they are adorned with the pink/coral pearls
  • Candles and table linen should be white although it can be overlaid with lace clothes and runners
  • The vintage napkins look sweet tied with tiny pussy cat bows made from the palest of pink ribbons
  • Use frosted glass tea lights
  • Jam jars tied with lace look lovely lighting the way to the Orangery

Dine:

  • Pink sparkling prossecco or if the budget allows blush champagne is de rigueur at the drinks reception!

Pink 4Country Currants

Colour palette: burley wood, tan, navy, snow white, misty rose, hot pink

A wonderful colour palette for a rustic chic wedding which contrasts neutral tans with navy blue and which uses pink – both blush and popping! – as accents

Décor:

  • If the budget allows use navy blue as the base cloth in the ballroom
  • The ivory candelabra work best
  • Tea lights and hurricane lamps should be made of clear glass
  • Fold white napkins to create pockets and accessorize with handwritten luggage labels for place names
  • Vases of blush coloured flowers should be liberally scattered around the tables – use hot pink sparingly, but it makes a good accent/contrast colour
  • Jam jars tied with lace look lovely lighting the way to the Orangery

Dine:

  • A white wedding cake accessorized with navy blue ribbon and hot pink flowers looks stunning – almost to good to cut into!!

Pink 5Hot Cactus

Colour palette: popping pink, grass green, mint green

A wonderful contemporary palette that contrasts grass and mint green with popping pink

Décor:

  • If the budget allows it’s fun to wrap the ballroom chairs in popping pink pashminas – they also make fab favours for your guests to take away
  • Keep the table linen white with grass or mint green napkins tied with popping pink velvet
  • A really fun and very contemporary table centre would be to fill tall trumpet glasses with twisted stems, dark green foliage and some popping pink flowers – you can then use clear glass tea lights to hold single popping pink flowers at the base. Good flowers in just the right shade of popping pink include roses, carnations and tulips
  • Shiny aluminium hurricane lamps work well with this look

Dine:

  • Serve Mojitos and apple martinis during the drinks reception. Pink prossecco is fun and you can even colour your mojitos pink by adding watermelon!!!
  • How about fresh green salad to start the wedding breakfast with? Of course your colour scheme doesn’t have to fit your meal, but if you want it to be in line with your theme of the day, you can use sliced watermelon as an appetizer along with strawberries or make your wedding cake a pink fondant one with green accents [or the other way around]
