Some people laugh when they hear of pink for a wedding color…but the truth is that pink is the new black. It is romantic and chic as ever. Of course, it can look very cookie cutter….it’s all about how you incorporate the color into your event. One key element in keeping your pink wedding looking chic, is SIMPLICITY. For example, for a centerpiece stick with one kind of pink flower as opposed to a variety. If you mix in too much with a pink centerpiece, it can look like that old silk flower arrangement grandma has in her living room. Also sizing matters. When using pink decor keep arrangements and accessories small as opposed to tall and bold. This will increase the “chic-ness” of your event. GO PINK!
