Chapter 9: Choosing Pink for a Wedding Color

One of the best things about the color pink is how many different shades it comes in and, as a result, how many moods and color combinations it can fit into. Because of this, you should have no difficulty in finding a combination of colors a shade of pink fits well into. No matter what season it is, pink is always in style.

Pink as a Year-Round Color

Pink can be used during any season of the year to an equally magical effect. You might use a rosy pink in the spring, a bright fuchsia in the summer, a deep magenta in the fall, and the faintest blush pink in the winter.

In general, you may have better luck using lighter shades during the winter and spring, and darker shades during the summer and fall. Again, however, these are general guidelines, and they are far from being set in stone. Let your tastes lead the way, and feel free to shake up these ideas. Pastel pink and sea-foam green might look fantastic for a casual beach wedding in the summer, or you might create a monochromatic look using multiple shades of pink against the white backdrop of winter.

What Goes With Pink?

Depending on which shades of pink you’re using, almost anything can be mixed and matched with pink. Other floral shades go well with pink, such as blues, yellows, and purples. You might also experiment with analogous coloring, and choose shades of pink, red, and orange, although you’ll want to be careful to pick shades that blend well, and not ones that clash with one another.

Pink also looks great with green, as this is its complement on the opposite side of the color wheel. Additionally, pink pairs well with a variety of neutrals, such as black, white, silver, gold, and more.
