Pink Has A Thing For Green!

For the bold, colorful, big personality spring brides, Pink and Green seamlessly work! These striking colors are fantastic for spring! Since spring weddings are being planned right now, let’s get some details taken care of for you! First let’s start off with a big inspiration board! A lady like you likes choices! 

There are so many fabulous options with this color scheme. Your first step is to decide what pinks and greens you like.  For instance pale pink vs dark pink, or lime green vs pale green or dark green.  Then you can start building from there. Let’s talk about a couple of pictures you see above.  A great idea is to have your groom and groomsman in tan suits! Nothing compliments this theme better in my opinion, especially if it’s outdoors!  Also above you’ll see two different options of bridesmaid dresses! Both are stunning, what do you vision at your wedding? Don’t forget cocktails! Offer some pink cosmos or sour apples to accent your theme! You also have the option of adding in some black (which I love!) to include a more formal feel.  Check out the inspiration board on the left for good ideas on including black as well.  Chandeliers are such a trend right now (I can’t say that enough!), I love the black chandelier on the left, such a fabulous touch.  I would infuse some pink accents on the table in the picture on the left, and a couple of pink flowers would look amazing on that cake!  I see this theme being for the bride who wants a more formal affair, but still wants her favorite color pink included! Both color schemes are full of personality!

Hello Decor! Above you see some fabulous images of different decor you can choose from.  Of course another trend the hanging lanterns, which come in all colors shapes and sizes, are an inexpensive way to illuminate and decorate your venue.  Let the flowers do the work, like in the picture above on the top right, very simple elegant table with the flowers full of color accenting the whole table for you!   If you are doing an indoor event, lighting is your best friend! It changes any space in such an amazing way.   You can be so unique with your choices in favors for this color scheme! For spring weddings I always love these little pots with young plants in them, like the one on the right.  Your guests can add them to their garden or home, and they can watch them grow as you grow with your new husband as a family! They also can double as seating assignments for your guests! On the left you see Jelly Bean holders! Fill these little glass jars with pink and green Jelly Beans and personalize the lid with a sticker. Not only are these great favors, they are decoration as well! I love items that multi-task for you! You can also fill these little jars with pink and green m&m’s, you can also personalize your m&m’s as well! Wine stoppers are always a fun gift to get as well, they make all kinds of fun ones, the one on the right is a great choice for this particular color scheme. Again, let these favors work for you in decorating your tables! Another great idea for candy filled favors, is the three mini cans tiered to look like a mini wedding cake.  Inside each on you can put something different, like mints and title that tier “mint to be”, then throw in some personalized m&m’s on another tier, and jelly beans in the bottom tier.  That way there is something for everybody.   

Centerpiece heaven! Oh the endless unique combinations of flowers, pots, fruit, candles, sparkles and branches! Currently the trend is tall and grand centerpieces, for that I love the one on the bottom middle, with the large branches and the beautiful flower arrangements accenting it in the tall vases.  Have fun with your centerpieces, do something unique and different, use apples or limes! They look amazing in outdoor weddings, and they also bring the outdoors indoors when used in a centerpiece. Let’s also touch on one major trend, which you’ll see in the collage on the right, the green ball adorned with flowers! WE LOVE THESE! There are so many sites that offer DIY ways to makes these, and they are such a fabulous addition to chairs that boarder your aisle, or even sporadically on chairs around your reception!  If you have a band playing or DJ,hang some on their stage or decorate their turntables! For those who love the darker shades of green and pink, how fabulous is this cake/cupcake combo on the right? Budget brides, opt for cupcakes!  Speaking of desserts, candy buffets always come to mind for spring weddings! They are great for decoration and if you are on a budget they are inexpensive as your guests favors.  Do a combination of pinks and greens in all shapes and sizes of clear glass holders (if it’s windy you might opt for plastic holders!

Up Next! Kids Parties! We’ll cover a couple themes and great ideas for the little ones!
