I’m struggling to find an accent color for my summer wedding. The bridesmaids are wearing black cocktail dresses, and the wedding is indoors in an 1930s-looking ballroom. I originally wanted to go with red roses, but I feel like they’re a little dark with the black for a summer wedding. Then I considered pink anemones, but I’m worried that they might be a) not classic enough for my otherwise very 1930s elegance wedding, and b) weird for the men, none of whom are the pink-wearing type, including my fiance. Which would you choose?

My personal choice is the soft pink, but the red looks nice too.

Have you thought about mixing the two with the black. I mean, the elegance is definitely with the red and black more (though if you watch how your decorations are, won’t look dark at all) the black and pink is formal, but not so much 1930’s formal (my opinion).
But, if you mix the pink and red and black – I think that would compliment it well. And you won’t have to worry about the guys wearing pink.

Commented on your other post but voted on this one 😉

I think you should go with the pink, but don’t let that limit you to having the guys wear that same color – put them in a complementary color and you’ll be fine!
Our ladies wore navy and carried orange/pink/yellow bouquets, and the guys had light blue ties and black suits. It looked great together! Weddings don’t HAVE to be 100% matchy-matchy unless you really want them to be.

@ddw: I totally agree with this. My flowers are mostly (well, pretty much all) pink and my fiance has told me he doesn’t want to wear pink. So he’ll be wearing either a red, blue or green (or maybe just ivory) that compliments the pink and our bridal party (all guys) will be wearing one of the other colors that still fits in or maybe a darker version of his color if he chooses to wear color. I do also think though that if you love both, have both of them together.
