We love the ethereal, desaturated shades of pink, known as pale pinks, also referred to all over social media as “millennial pink.” Whatever you choose to call it, this sweet set of colors has swept the fashion world. Each one so soft, so appealing, & so so perfect for a wedding palette! No longer relegated to little girls, this new rendition of pinks are current, hip and all the rage in the design world. The best of all? We love Pantone 489 U, cuz we think it is the perfect combination of blush, pale pink and nude. Which one is YOUR favorite?
You can incorporate your fave shade into your wedding day by adding tons of pink details from the decor all the way down to your feet. Pale pink Converse are an adorable option for a pink #obsessed bride! And including swags of pink on the chairs looks super cute. Really, really feeling it? Try a fashion-forward pretty pink hair tint! LOVE!
You can find inspiration for this color palette literally everywhere! Nature gives us darling flowers and the palest flamingos. One of the world’s most respected color experts, Annie Sloan, gives us the perfect Chalk Paint, in Antoinette! You could whip up some awesome DIYs with this stuff!
Will you be needing a bridal bag in this seasons’ key color? Ummm, yeah!! Especially if it is this Pink GG Marmont Matelassé Cross Body Leather Shoulder Bag by Gucci.
Your wedding day mannie will be apropos if you decide on Essie’s “Blushing Bride.” The hugest bouquet ever will help drive your color story home. And ballet inspired shoesies will certainly be adorable on you.
And since we’re on the topic of bouquets, look at these insanely inspirational handfuls of gorgeousness….
Pale pink flowers, we adore you.
And these shades of florals look perfectly wonderful on guys, too.
Pink details can add so much whimsy to your wedding day. Try cotton candy favors, big balloons and that ever-popular wedding prop, the mason jar, this one updated with an on-trend color and a dip in glitter!
Pale pinks look fantastic paired with metallics, whether it is the sparkly silverness of mercury glass or glittery gold.
And, if you so happen to love sparkles, try bedazzling the bottom of your wedding shoes in silver glitter. So fun in photos! Or have a custom brooch bouquet made incorporating all kinds of bling. If your budget is boundless, have your wedding in a castle and spend a bazillion dollars on hanging floral orbs of beauty. We know we would!
Rose gold is another metallic that works with pink. Especially if we are talking about rose gold sequins! Dress up your tables with runners of rose gold, and dress your maids in a variety of rose gold and blush.
Or combine cream with your color story, to add a delicate touch. Doesn’t this cake look yummy? We want to sit down in that perfect chair with a big piece right now!
Of course your cake element will need to be pink. And boy oh boy are there some lovely pink cakes out there.
Millennial pinks are modern, cool and versatile, so whichever shade of pale pink you decide to roll with, we know it will make your wedding day beautiful.
