A destination wedding sets the stage for one of the most romantic and picturesque backdrops you can imagine. From turquoise oceanfront ceremonies to lush green garden “I do’s” and everything in between, your surroundings can often make much of your décor decisions for you. However, there are plenty of wedding day decisions that still need to be made and rest on one key element – your color scheme. One color that suits any environment beautifully is one most synonymous with love and romance – pink. Pink has become one of the most popular wedding colors for wedding couples, both past and present, so in honor of International Day of Pink, we’re talking all things pink and how you can incorporate the universal shade of love into your big day.
Blush pink has become a color reborn, modernized by a new generation’s take on wedding day style. Blush is the softest – and some may say the most romantic pink – and with so many different shades of blush, it can be incorporated into every element of your wedding day without overpowering your surroundings. From the décor to wedding party attire (as blush wedding dresses are becoming increasingly popular), blush blends beautifully with both neutral and bold color tones and is suitable for any season.
As one of the key trends for South Asian weddings in 2022, lush pink is on rise and reclaiming our attention this year. Incorporate this trending tone in your invitations, archways, centerpieces, and more, and use the florals in your chosen destination as natural décor that inspires and brings out your individual culture. While impactful, lush pink is a subtle shade that compliments the tropical elements of the Caribbean – so for your South Asian wedding, there’s no such thing as too much pink.
Bright pink radiates the look and feel of the tropics and goes hand-in-hand with the lush fauna and flora found oceanside or in a jungle oasis. Complimented most beautifully by rich earth tones as seen in fresh palms and succulents, this shade of pink can range from bold to pastel tones and is the perfect pop of color to add to your florals, table décor, cocktails (grapefruit mimosa, anyone?), and even your seating, transporting your guests to the ultimate tropical paradise.
50 SHADES OF PINK
With multiple shades of pink to choose from, who says you have to pick just one? With similar underlying tones in blush, hot pink, and fuchsia color palettes, you can intermix the different shades on your wedding day. Mix and match to add depth and dimension to your décor and design your own unique style! For more prominent visual elements like your archway and bouquets, go for bolder tones if you have lighter and more muted settings, and integrate the softer pinks in elements that have a stronger presence throughout the day, such as your signage, table linens, reception florals, and bridal party attire.
