Little girls tend to love the colour pink and some never grow out of it.
And vibrant hot pink is a particular favourite shade of the colour. It’s warm, engaging and very easy to work with.
If you want to have a hot pink wedding theme, then there’s nothing to stop you. It can be a subtle whisper or a real statement in hot pink.
Thinking wedding favours and table accessories…
Hot pink wedding favours could be something as simple as brightly coloured sweets, a pink gerbera in a pot, or a stick of rock with the date of your wedding running through.
This is certainly something one of our stylists could help you with and their experience will show you what is likely to work and what isn’t.
Apart from chair sashes and dazzling room drapes, they’ll have other, effective but inexpensive suggestions like tying napkins together with pink ribbon or using pink lighting for a soft flow.
When you leave the ceremony, you might like to offer pink confetti to your guests. Or have it sprinkled along your aisle?
You as the bride
If you want to introduce hot pink into the way you dress, then seriously consider having some coloured wedding shoes. Not only will you be able to wear them again and again (which you might not if you opted for traditional white or ivory) but hot pink slippers peeking out from underneath your dress would look fantastic.
You could also go for a pink wedding sash and of course a wedding bouquet with bright pink flowers, we’re thinking gerberas and roses in particular.
As for your bridesmaids, some of them may feel they don’t suit pink, in which case don’t feel you have to ditch the idea of dressing them in hot pink (or opting for different bridesmaids!) instead, think about subtle touches you could add to their dresses. Maybe hot pink shoes again or a pink corsage pinned to their waist.
To keep the fun going, you could consider offering your guests some pink themed food for example a pink iced wedding cake is a given.
Beetroot is very on trend right now, so talk to your caterer about using beetroot in canapés. You could also serve a pink coloured cocktail on arrival or maybe even traditional pink champagne if your budget stretches to that. If not, you’ll find some sparkling pink rose wines which will help you keep to your budget.
For dessert, you could offer something pink, berries could help here. You could have a strawberry mousse or Eton mess with a pink swirl going through the delicious meringue and cream.
Dessert, we think, is the perfect opportunity to have a pink themed sweetie table. Fill it with pink sweetie classics such as fizz bombs, rhubarb and custard sweets and rose creams. Again, one of our stylists could help you set up a sweetie table to your taste.
Other fun to have with pink
- Of course, pink-themed wedding stationery and save the dates are a given. Then there are table plans, seating cards and thank-you cards as well as orders of service.
- If you feel like it, you could also ask your guests to wear a hot pink item to the wedding – or just give the men a pink buttonhole to wear.
- If it’s winter (or even summer knowing our weather) you could have some large pink umbrellas on standby to shield guests from showers.
- And tip the wink to your bridegroom that you’d like to drive to and from the ceremony in a bright pink car. (Very Lady Penelope to have a pink Rolls Royce).
- The great thing about a hot pink wedding theme is that it is so adaptable. You’ll find so much in this shade – fabrics, flowers, paper … and it’s generally a very flattering tone.
