How to Incorporate Pink Roses Into Your Wedding Day

If you’re anything like Elle Woods from Legally Blonde, there’s no such thing as too much pink. But even the most pink-loving brides might want to tone it down for their wedding day. If you want this color at the center of your wedding and are currently planning and designing your aesthetics, you may find yourself straying away from the pretty shade or wondering if it’s simply “too loud” for your event. Maybe not all of your bridesmaids are comfortable wearing a blush gown, or you don’t want the entire reception venue to be dressed in the same hue. This, however, should not discourage you from making pink the star of your nuptials. The good thing is that you do not need the same tone on everything; you can still have a pink-focused palette without your guests’ eyes only seeing one tint throughout the day.

If hot pink is your favorite color, you might want to offset the bold hue with a cooler tone or black or white. You might even find yourself admiring lighter blush tones but are otherwise not seeking a neutral scheme for the day. Your floral arrangements can be the solution to these dilemmas. Pink looks gorgeous in all types of weddings because there are so many different shades from bright to warm, and it is also seen in all kinds of blossoms, especially roses. Roses are not only timeless, but they also best display the versatility of pink. If you have not yet decided on your floral arrangements and certainly seek pink for your bouquets or centerpieces, these blooms might be a definite consideration.

Classic weddings usually favor blush roses, whereas fuchsia tones appear in more contemporary nosegays. However, you can also combine different shades of pink, or include other colors, in order to best achieve your desired aesthetic. Now that spring has arrived and summer is quickly approaching, you can look around outdoors and online to see which specific tints either draw your attention or turn you away. Offsetting your blooms with other tones can sometimes emphasize your desired color even more, so be open-minded with your floral arrangements. If you are still unsure about which style you want to pursue, but seek pink as the primary color, here are a few inspiring floral arrangements to guide you to your final decision.
