    Personally I don’t like pink in a wedding because I feel it’s very, very feminine and to me it seems like the wedding is just about the woman. But I guess there is the odd man who likes pink. I would just personally go with different colours.

    Voted against it, but it kind of depends on the shade of pink and if you add another color. A light pink is a no. A bright pink, especially with accents of green, would work for me.  What about your fiance? When I asked mine about color, his response was “anything but pink.”

    I would go to project wedding and look at some inspiration photos there and see how you and your SO feel about it then.

    I voted YES!  Of course my colors are a deeper pink, light pink and Charcoal/silver.  If you like pink and that’s is your color go for it!  I would suggest maybe adding a little more color to it though.  Go for a darker shade of pink because you want to consider the pictures and will it turn out good.  Also, don’t forget it’s YOUR wedding.  If your man doesn’t care or has issues compromise, but stay true to your heart and dreams.  My man doesn’t like pink but knows it’s my fav. color but hd did like the pink/silver combo so the men are wearing the charcoal/silver colors and I’m fine with that since I will still get my pink.

    Also, think about where it’s going to be at.  Remember decor and an ugly reception colored floor could make it look bad.  I still think that Pink can be done right and not look babyfied.

    I look forward to what you decide!  That’s my and my man’s 3rd Anniversary together…hoping my engagement date.

    I agree with some of the others about adding another color. Perhaps have your bridesmaids in pink dresses but the guys in another color like grey and then it shouldn’t look like a baby shower. Also I wouldn’t doo balloons at all.

    Pink and grey are a great combination :). Light pink and white make me think of a garden, though, not a baby shower, so I think you’re good either way! 🙂

    If you are set on pink, then offset it with ivory or light gold instead of white. Also maybe a deeper shade of pink.

    Also, I am thinking of doing balloons too and granted that they do look nice, they might work against you though since white (or ivory, etc)/pink balloons will definitely invoke that ‘baby shower’ feel. (My colours are red, black, and light gold.)

    I’m having pink but it is more of an accent color. Although I am having the girls wear light pink and I will carry dark pink flowers, the reception will be mostly navy and gold with pink thrown in here and there.

    When my Mom was re-married in 2004, she did a mostly white wedding with light pink accents.  I think it was pretty, but I personally wouldn’t have chose it for myself.  My sisters were the BMs and the youngest was the flower girl.

    It just depends on what shades you choose and what the decor is. I must say that balloons strike me as more kidlike than wedding and in those colors, it might be a little too babyish. Daisies are also more innocent “younger” flowers, so you might consult with a florist as to what they could add to the bouquets to make them a little more sophisticated.

    Of course, the trend would be to add a tertiary accent color, like gold, gray, or beige/kraft. That would be one way to push it more into adulthood if you feel like it’s getting too baby shower.

    We are having a vintage summer wedding which will be mostly white, vintage silver, and burlap brown with touches of blush pink. The pink will mostly come out in the flowers on the table. I think pink and white CAN work but you do have to be careful to choose decor that adds maturity and sophitication to the event.

    Do what you want, it’s your wedding!
