    I love pink, but Fiance nixed that color option. For a summer wedding, watermelon seems really cheery and in the spirit of the season. With bridesmaids, it depends on their coloring, I think. I think bright pink generally looks great on everyone, but maybe for those that have red hair, it might be a little better to go with a paler pink…Light pink (depending on how light) can wash pale girls out, though… most redheads are pale…hmm wow, now I’M confused hehe. Dark pink is probably the best bet.

    Could you please explain the poll answers?  Is “g” for good?

    I am getting married in July too, and we are using this bright pink color as an accent to the light pink and bright apple-limey green… just a few punches of it here and there to really brighten up the color scheme and bring it from spring to summer…. But I LOVE this color, esp. with the black and white damask that seems so popular these days!

    I love the watermelon color but from your pictures, it looks like a lot of pink going on there.  I think you can do the dresses and the shoes but try to lighten it by having a bouquet with a mixture of other colors.  Some white flowers or maybe a light pink flower.  Maybe on the dress, maybe have a pink or white sash?

    Just my opinion but if it all that one color, it might be to much in your face.

    There’s always ways to tone it down.



    EDIT: Like for your picture with the party favors, I would have the pink and the watermelon party favors but also have a white party favor box.  Oh, here’s an idea, add some silver or gold accents instead of white.
