I am also a pink & green bride. I added chocolate brown as well. Here were some of my inspirations when I first picked the scheme. We are June 27th so almost there, I’m more than ready for it to just be here already : )

-Happy planning

Aw yay for June 27th! Its a good day then πŸ˜‰ THats funny!

 

Our wedding is more casual than my original inspiration pictures. I mean not everyone can have swarovski crystal centerpieces with a dozen + roses at each table. haha…but I do love her colors she picked so thats why the pictures are "inspiration" pictures I suppose : )

 My girls are wearing vintage cut, sheath style dresses in lipstick pink (last season Isaac Mizrahi line) and apple green shoes of their choice. I searched hi and low for the apple green shoes but found nothing for 5 bridesmaids so we are dyeing them. The guys are in kahki suits and we found AWESOME ties that match the apple green perfectly. http://www.cheap-neckties.com/  I seriously didn’t know what they would look like because they were SOO cheap but I took a chance and LOVE LOVE them.

 

Happy planning, you will have so much fun. Oh my advise if your a year out. Shop for your ribbon, fabric ect ect now because in a couple months the fall color stuff will be out and you will have to wait until next season for most pink & green things. I hated that part about planning a year in advance : )

MayBee, I used pink and green in my wedding with silver/platinum in there as well. I dressed my BMs in silver and my flower girls in green. Pink was in my dress and my hubby’s tux. The groomsmen were also in silver. You can view some photos here. And then you can see pics of my invites and some other things I diy’d here. I carried out the colors throughout as much of the wedding as I could. Oh, and I was married in December, so I used softer shades instead of the bright pinks and greens.

I love dresses with color in them, so I would def encourage you to add some color to yours. I got my dress at Alfred Angelo. They have tons of gorgeous dresses with color options. Don’t know what type of dress (or designer) you were looking into, but there are so many dresses now with punches of color thrown in. Even if you end up getting an all white dress, it’s usually pretty easy to add a sash/ribbon to it to give it some color. Oh, and I don’t think I had any pics up anywhere, but I actually had on some bright pink heels for my shoes, just for fun πŸ˜€

I’m glad you liked the photos, too. I would have gone for a brighter pink, but it wouldn’t have really gone too well in december…haha. Were you planning on doing bright pinks and greens since your wedding is in May? Oh, and I definitely echo KristinK about getting any pink and green items you may need now. Most of the spring/easter lines should be on sale now for your softer shades. Look for some bright pinks and greens during the summer though! Then make sure to buy near the end of summer when things go on sale to make room for fall lines.

I was MOH two years ago for an April wedding. I’m sure the bride won’t mind me sharing…We wore tea-length green dresses and carried pink tulips.

Personally, I like the combo, but I always tend to associate it with AKA sorority. haha. But I was very comfortable wearing the colors, and I thought it was a wonderful combination for a spring wedding. Plus, it looks good whether it’s pastel or neon together! Very versatile. And at the time, we had no trouble finding the combo anywhere. For some reason, that was when the Pink and Green explosion was happening in our area.

I am doing fuschia and light green for our carribean beach wedding. Fuschia bridesmaid dresses, with cymbidium orchid bouquets. Our logo is three pale green palm trees in the background with our names in coursive across it in fuscia. Fuschia table runners, pink signature welcome drinks for the reception, fuschia flowers in the center pieces, and maybe fuschia shoes for me? Our wedding is in July.

I’m wearing pink shoes, FI is wearing a green tie. BMs will wear green dresses of their choosing and carry pink calla lillies. We are desperately searching for pink and green (only) striped ties for the groomsmen. I’m shocked how hard theyve been to find–has anyone else found this in their pink and green searching?

I just love the color combo–so fresh, fun. We are getting married in July too
