Selecting a pink and ecru (an off-white shade) wedding palette is a great way to include a variety of hues while still creating a cohesive look throughout your nuptials. From the wedding cake to the flower girls and their blooms, you can introduce these subtle hues in a whole lot of creative ways. And with the weather starting to warm up, pink and ecru are perfect shades to implement in a spring or summer wedding! I have a few fun suggestions of how you can fill your big day with these beautiful colors:
Start your big day off on the right note with wedding invitations that reflect your color palette. This Side by Side Ecru Featherpress Invitation features ecru-colored stationery with “Mr. and Mrs.” elegantly written out at the top. The “Mr.” and “Mrs.” is separated by a luxurious and dramatic ampersand. The pink and ecru only add to the sophistication of this invitation with their understated color. Coordinate your stationery with reception and response cards that are simple and beautiful.
Mesh light pink and ecru together using wedding decorations. Fill white vases with pink and white blooms – you can even choose to use various shades of pink to create a dynamic monochromatic color palette. Imagine rows of colorful ecru, blush and bright pink flowers going down the center of your reception tables. For example, adorn the backs of chairs with delicate satin pink ribbon, lay down an ecru table runner or hang a mix of pink and ecru paper lanterns above the head table – there really is no bad way to combine these two hues.
You can still bring color into your wedding ensemble while rocking the traditional white dress (although, blush wedding gowns are super trendy right now!). Apply a shade of pink lip gloss to accentuate your pout and paint your nails a coordinating shade. Keep the rest of your makeup simple with light pink eyeshadow, a bit of bronzer and a dusting of blush on the apples of your cheeks. Finish off your ensemble with a pair of show-stopping shoes in a shade of pink.
Don’t forget about the wedding party! Go for monochromatic gowns in shades of pink, or stick with ecru-colored dresses for a simple look that won’t take the spotlight away from your white ensemble. The groomsmen can sport a pair of pink socks, a pink tie or a pink boutonniere to coordinate with the bridal party. After all, who said guys can’t pull off pink just as well as the ladies?
