I am just starting to look at different colors for my wedding, and I am wondering if you think pink is too girly? I would have the majority white with subtle pops of bright pink and yellow (think all white with pink and yellow flowers and centerpieces… I want brighter colors, NOT pastels).

For me, yes it would be too girly. However, I have seen some BEAUTIFUL weddings with pink as one of the main colors. It all depends on how you use it!

@Mrs. Fireworks: Right. I’m not SUPER girly, but I have seen some weddings on those tv shows where they use bright pink yellow and it makes BEAUTIFUL centerpieces, etc. I just don’t want OUR wedding to be so girly that it doesn’t reflect my Fiance at all.

I actually think that the softer light pinks look more adult and less “girly” than the bright pinks. The combo of pink and gray is quite beautiful.

What does your Fiance think? Mr. LK explicitly requested that pink not be one of our wedding colors.

I LOVE pink but my husband wasn’t on board with a pink wedding so I chose my next favorite, plum purple!!! At least it’s in the “pinkish” shade area, kinda 🙂
I think pink accents with the other colors you chose should look beautiful. I don’t think anyone would point out and say “Wow, this is soooo girly pink”. Try pinterest.com and put the colors together and see what it looks like. I’d love to see the outcome.

Yeah, I’m just not a fan of pastels… thanks for the input though! And my other choices would be royal purple with accents of dark blue, but I’m not finding a lot online with that combo so I’m not sure. I absolutely love purple, but my Fiance is actually in a family friend’s wedding that is coming up soon and the main color IS purple, and I don’t want to seem like I’m ripping off of theirs.

@scadadle15: I agree – I think the softer pink is less girly and more appropriate for a wedding.

I’m biased because I used little bits of pink. Our flower girls were in pale pink, and the centerpieces were shades of pale pink flowers. I balanced it out with lots of whites, neutrals, and my bridesmaids wore a deep blue/aqua. I think it looks great when you have ther colors to offset it. Here’s what my centerpiece looked like.

@2impatient: I am totally having pink as one of my wedding colors! The Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses are a raspberry, and our table napkins will match. Some of our centerpiece flowers will be shades of pink, and the Groomsmen bouts, and the bridal bouquets.
Its all in smaller splashes as opposed to “holy crap thats a lot of pink!” we’re also using black and champagne. FH doesn’t have a problem with it, as long as none of the men had to wear pink vests or anything!

We are using pink with ivory, gray, silver and gold and my Fiance loves it. I think pink is great because if you pair it with cool neutrals and metallics it can be soft and sophisticated or pair it with turquoise and red and you get a real pop – Soft pink and black and gray can be super sophisticated.
Just depends on how you use it – here is my current board of what I am using and I do not think it is girly but romantic instead 🙂

Nope. My flowers are most likely going to be different shades of pink w/a bit of peach thrown in. Pink is a beautiful, romantic color and I think it’s extremely fitting for weddings. If you did everything in bubblegum pink it might be a bit much, but I think adding bursts of it would look great.

We’re doing pink and cream for a whimsical, vintage theme. My fiance is completely on board. Pink is a beautiful colour and I say if you want to use it and your man is on board, go for it!
