Pretty in pink: Pink wedding dresses, bridesmaids dresses, accessories and more…
Hot pink, pale blush, dusty millennial pink, pretty pastel… Think you don’t like pink? Then think again. We love a splash of this rosy shade and it’s also one of the most versatile colours when it comes to weddings. You can mix hot pink and tropical brights for a super contemporary look, try a selection of soft pastel shades for something more classic or go for trendy millennial pink (a grown-up, peachy/salmony shade) to be bang up-to-date.
We also love our pale pink wedding dresses. These come in the softest shade of delicate blush and are amazing for flattering the complexion. Add to this our beautiful bridesmaids’ range in shades of pale and hot pink, plus matching accessories, and you and your wedding party will be absolutely ticked pink! Read on for some perfectly pretty inspiration…
How to choose a pink theme
Firstly, decide on the feel you would like your wedding to have. Is it rustic and informal? Classic and traditional? Or modern and contemporary? Then take a look at some of our real brides stories for inspiration.
This happy couple chose a mix of pink, white and lavender for their summer wedding and mixed it with elegant touches of gold for a sophisticated feel. Muted peaches and pinks with sage green also look amazing but, for a really zingy contemporary theme, you can’t beat this glorious wedding full of punchy hot pinks and vibrant rainbow brights!
Pink wedding dresses
When it comes to pink wedding dresses, our blush wedding dresses have just the softest hint of rosy colour. It’s a dream for flattering the complexion, as gentle pink undertones are brilliant for brightening the cheeks.
Next we have gorgeous Finch, which is available in both ivory and soft blush. This slim A-line has a beautiful off-the-shoulder bodice and stunning embroidery from head to toe. The bodice also has a dipped V-neckline, edged in floral lace, plus delicate off-the-shoulder straps that drape flatteringly over the tops of the arms.
At the back, a chic row of covered buttons leads down to the delightful skirt, which pools prettily on the floor in a small but elegant train. Wear this with our clever Wunderskirt for a little extra volume and lovely smooth lines.
Finch’s detailed florals look amazing in pale blush, and the dress has a beautiful boho feel that would work perfectly with a light pastel wedding theme of lavender, pale green and the softest shades of pink. Try it with our sparkling Lorelei hairpiece too, to complete the look.
The blushing bride
Rea is another of our blushing beauties. This modern princess A-line, one of our exclusive Platinum Edition gowns, comes in both ivory and blush. It has a flattering off-the-shoulder neckline and the bodice is covered in hundreds of glittering sequins and layers of beaded lace, which cascade down the dramatic skirt.
There’s also a luxurious layer of Chantilly lace for even more detail and a lace-up back to complete the fairy tale princess look. A statement dress like this needs suitably regal accessories, and we think our stunning Neveah tiara is the perfect match, with it’s princess-worthy design and showstopping sparkling crystals.
This is a dress that’s designed for a wow factor ballroom in an elegant manor house or even a castle. Match it with plenty of bold candy or millennial pinks, mixed with whites and golds, for a dreamy pink theme that really is fit for a princess.
And now for the wedding party…
Start your day the right way with our beautiful selection of pink robes and pyjamas. You’ll be photographed from the moment you get up, whether that’s by your professional photographer or simply by friends and family, and these matching outfits will look super pretty while you’re getting ready. Plus, they make the perfect gift for you and your maids to keep, as a great reminder of this fun time spent together.
Our luxurious silky pyjama set in pretty pink florals is the perfect way to ensure a great night’s sleep. Featuring a short-sleeved shirt and matching shorts, edged in white piping, you’ll wake up refreshed and ready for the big day. Remember to pick up the matching scrunchy to complete the look!
Then float down to breakfast in our floral robe, with ‘Bride’ embroidered in gold across the back. This elegant kimono style is also great for your honeymoon and there’s a matching robe for your besties, too.
Alternatively, your maids will love these silky, embroidered bridesmaid pyjamas in blush pink. They’re the ultimate touch of luxury for a pre-wedding sleepover and even come with a matching blush robe.
The big day
When it comes to your wedding party’s outfits, we have tons of beautiful choices that work with a perfectly pink theme. Your besties will stand out from the crowd in hot pink and you can match this with flowers in varying shades of dark and light pink with the odd touch of deep red too. Alternatively, try mixing it with cute peaches, pinks and creams, with plenty of light green foliage, for an informal vintage feel. Splashes of gold, on your stationery and table settings, also look amazing against hot pink.
Our blush pink bridesmaids’ dresses are one of our most popular shades, as they’re so flattering. Don’t forget, all our bridesmaids colours come in six different designs too, so there’s something to suit the shape and style of every maid.
We also love blush mixed with some of our other colours. Why not get creative and try it with silver grey and sage green or lavender, light blue or mint green? Then you can use your colour mix as inspiration for your flowers, your table decor and much more.
And don’t forget the groom…
We’ve also made it super easy to colour coordinate with all the men in the wedding party, too. Our tie gift set includes a tie, cufflinks and pocket square, and comes in all the same colours as our bridesmaids range. So, your groomsmen can have exactly the same colour or you can mix and match to complement the bridesmaids’ shade.
So, we hope we’ve inspired you with some gorgeous pink wedding ideas and shown you that fabulous pink can be pretty and classic, soft and vintage or punchy and modern. And, whether you’re classic, contemporary or more of a princess bride, it could be the colour theme for you!
