Ok so my sedding colors are silver and fuchsia (hot pink) with a little touch of black. My bridesmaids will be wearing hot pink dresses and silver shoes……now I found these beautiful flowers that are called Anemones. They have hot pink petals and a dark center. Is this too much pink????? I don’t really like the mixing of light pink in a bouquet, so I’m limited….I thought of maybe adding a few black Ostrich plumes into the mix but not sure….PLEASE HEEEELP!!!

Pink is such a happy color, so IMHO if it’s done tastefully there can never be too much.

LOVE the colors! I did a wedding back in September 2010 with those exact wedding colors, so no I don’t think that you’re using too much pink! The girls wore fuchsia dresses with silver shoes as well with a touch of black jewlery. The reception had touches of pink with the seat covers, napkins candy station, and etc.
So I think that the touch of black that you’re using will tone down a little of pink. But I think its a GREAT idea for you to incorporate feathers in the decor!
Here’s a picture of it…of course with YOUR wedding I would do a little more fuchsia than shown here Good luck and I hope this helps! Let me know if I can help in any other way.

There is such thing as too much pink especially when men are involved. I’m hoping for fuchia as well as my accent color. Not a hope in hell though I’m doing much more than a ribbon here, and a flower there in terms of pink though. It’s the mans day too… and that’s why I dislike when it’s too “girly”. Though since you do have black I suggest most things black/ silver with just splashes of pink.

Just thought I’ll add pink flowers are cool, so long as ALL flowers aren’t pink… Check out my floral inspiration board…

There is def such a thing as too much pink! I’m not a fan of pink so personally I think pink is best left as a accent color.
Are those bouquets for you or BM? If their dresses are already pink, pink bouquets might be a bit much.
BTW I do like the bouquet you posted though. I love anemones and it looks really nice with that light green accent and the black.

The only problem I can see is that you won’t be able to see the flowers with the hot pink dresses behind them. I think the Anemones are beautiful, but will they show up? You may want to have the BM in another color dress so the flowers show up or have the Anemones mixed in with other color flowers.

I love pink but I think pink flowers will jusy blend in with the dresses. What about having the girls carry white bouquets and you carry pink?

I love pink, but I definitely think there is a thing as too much pink. I have seen some David Tutera pink weddings that have made me cringe.

There is never such a thing as too much pink, in my opinion.
Here is a pic I found of girls with pink bridesmaids dresses and pink bouquets. These girls do have some other colored flowers in their bouquets though, so maybe you could try adding in some white flowers to balance it.

I’m a believer you can never have to much pink. If you’re afraid you’re getting to barbie-like you can opt for a white version of the anemone flower with the dark center. You can also use your groom or bridesmaids to help corral your pink tendencies. I love pink and my groom hates it. I’m trying to keep it to a minimum. My MOH also begged me not to do hot pink dresses. I’m giving them navy dresses, but they’re still gettting hot pink flowers (comprimise).
Also in the store window of the place we got the bridesmaid dresses from they had the most over-the-top fabulous pink dress I’d ever seen. I loved it and let me tell you I have no idea where you’d wear it to (unless you were maybe a celebrity on the red carpet) other than a wedding.
I think this is the dress they had in the window. Talk about Pink!

There is such a thing as too much pink, just as there is such a thing as too much red, blue, purple, etc. I agree with previous posters that you should try to add some variety into the flowers just so there is contrast with the dresses.

Yes there is such a thing as to much pink. The picture Krises posted to me is pink overload. I like pink myself but not hot pink that reminds me way to much of the 1980’s with neon colors.

Yes there is absolutely a thing as too much pink. I love pink, it’s one of my favourite colours, but to me, tons of pink screams Sweet 16.
