The sweet nature of pink paired with the sheer elegance of black creates a wedding color combo that leaves a lasting impression. It’s pretty, it’s sophisticated and it’s stunning. Here are a few ideas for incorporating pink and black wedding colors into your big day!

Wedding Inspiration: Black and Pink

Just a formality…

Black and white is often used for more formal events, but throw some pink in there and you’ve got yourself a beautifully sophisticated look that has a touch of casual charm. The nice thing about black and white is that it’s really easy to work with. You’ll be able to find all kinds of wedding decorations in these colors. Throw some pops of pink in there, like pink floral arrangements, pink wedding napkins or pink tablecloths, and you’re well on your way to creating a memorable wedding look.


We like to see wedding colors used in surprising ways. The black wedding cake shown here is designed to look like a chalkboard — an incredibly creative way to incorporate black into the wedding reception. The pink cocktails are both pretty and delicious. Topped with black and white striped straws, these drinks are a clever use of wedding colors and a tasty treat for guests.

Pink on paper…

Pink wedding invitations are so romantic, and here at Invitations by Dawn you’ll be able to customize many of them with a black design and/or wording. Black wedding invitations are absolutely stunning and will surely win the affection of all your guests! We’ve chosen the Demure Damask wedding invitation on pink paper with design and wording in black foil. It’s a stunner!
