A few blush pillar candles on each table would look great. Would you want to go so far as changing the napkins to blush?

maybe you can add a centre piece on the tables and include the blush there? or maybe you can use a napkin ribbon with that particular colour? 

I do not know if maybe you are having the menus printed, maybe you can add the blush there?

When you start adding light pink to black and white, the effect softens it. I think the most cost effective would be to get some tulle that is blush pink (just fabric) and “swish” it around the base of your centrepieces and add it in to your current decor…adds the pop without re-arranging the centrepices. you could also buy or make light pink bling on a stick to insert into your decorations and ribbons…Or purchase blush pink candle stick holders…or maybe bling out photo frames with your menu selection in light pink and jewels and place on the table. I was watching four weddings and they had personalized photo frames with the guests first name and the meaning of their name in a frame-probably pretty inexpensive to do and the pop would be really pretty at each placesetting.

Thats all  I can think of for now πŸ™‚

My wedding colors are black and white as well with splashes of red that will come into play with red roses.  I am going very elegant, and romantic, so for my center pieces, I am doing tall black vases, dark red roses on top with crystals hanging down around the black vase….


These pictures are where I got my idea from..

@louiseW:  have you looked into fake flowers, much cheaper than real flowers and put together can look very real and very nice…

My Future Sister-In-Law used blush/ pink as accent colors- in the bouquets, centerpieces, and other small decorations.
