Want to use pink as a wedding theme without going all frilly and Princessey? The key is to use a gentle shade of rose, set it against a more masculine color like grey, pepper shades of robin blue for interest and add burnt sienna to accent. Result? A warm, inviting and romantic setting.
The colors used in this Classic Romantic wedding theme are: pale dusty pink, warm grey, dark grey, robin blue, burnt sienna and cream.
Starting point – a pale dusty pink backdrop. The look is relaxed yet classy when set with a light grey table and darker gray vase bearing fresh pale pink and cream roses. On the right, a pretty all-pink ensemble. To prevent the drowning-in-a-sea-of-pink look, lots of off-white pieces are used for the plates, wooden chairs (love it) and table setting.
Doesn’t the pink stand out against the warm grey tablecloth? The details of the monograms on the favor boxes on the right is in a dark cool gray, as is the top most favor on the left. A soothing shade of robin blue is a great complement to pale pink .
For a bolder accent, introduce a vibrant yet earthy colour — burnt sienna. This shade of brown has the right amount of red/orange to stand out without overpowering the rest of the colors. It also have a kind of retro feel, a great addition to this romantic palette. It works well set against light blue or cream background as pictured on the matchbox favors on the left.
