Do you remember when blush pink was big news in wedding and bridesmaids’ gowns a couple of years ago? The soft, warm, flattering tone was perfect for summer weddings. Then last year, pink made the bridal fashion and wedding style headlines again, after rose quartz and serenity (blue) were named the Pantone Colour of the Year for 2016.
According to the colour experts at Pantone, “Rose Quartz is a persuasive yet gentle tone that conveys compassion and a sense of composure.”
And when the occasion is a wedding, it adds a classic, refreshing, romantic touch to all the festivities. Better yet, it can be paired with all sorts of tones, textures and finishes, from neutrals to metallics.
No wonder its popularity shows no sign of waning.
This year, Pinterest’s 2017 Wedding Report tells us pink is hot again! As the report notes, “Pink is having a moment in fashion and design, and it’s making it’s way into the wedding world. This isn’t the pink of the past – it’s done in a cool new way. Searches for dusty rose weddings +255% YoY.”
But it’s not just dusty rose or rose quartz or blush at the top of the wedding colours lists. Petal pink, coral, salmon, powder pink, pearl pink, icy pink, lemonade pink, watermelon pink and lavendar pink are all part of this lovely range of choices. Whatever your sensibilities you can be sure, your “pink” will pair well with everything from charcoal grey or creamy yellow to silver, gold and pearl. It will also work beautifully in bouquets. In fact, you can easily mix more than one shade of pink in a bouquet, along with your other colours of choice.
