Pink & Yellow Wedding Colors

Pink roses are the perfect complement to a pink bridesmaid dress.

Pink and yellow colors brighten a wedding and set the tone for fun and romance. Pink evokes thoughts of femininity, and yellow is bright and sunshiny. Both colors go well with the hair and skin colorings of most women of all races and ethnicities. A spring or summer wedding would be the perfect time for a pink and yellow color combination.

The Invitations

A yellow and pink theme evokes thoughts of a semi-formal or informal wedding. Your invitation should convey the type of wedding you are having by the style of the invitation and type setting. If you plan to have a formal wedding, pick formal white invitations with perhaps a hint of gold or yellow along the edges. Avoid anything that might appear too cute for a formal wedding.

The Decorating

A pink and yellow reception is bright and cheery. Decorate the venue with yellow and pink roses or pink and white roses sprinkled with yellow daises or Gerber daises. Drape the chairs with yellow tulle and tie with pink ribbons. Yellow back lighting will set a cheery mood. The table can have yellow tablecloths with pink napkins and brown napkin holders for contrast. Yellow sunflowers can be placed in large standing vases around the room.

The Style

A maid of honor in a pink dress will receive the appropriate recognition while standing next to the bridesmaids in yellow. Each gown can be exactly the same, or choose different styles of the same fabric and color to complement the various sizes and shapes that bridesmaids come in. A bridal gown with pink or yellow accents such as a large ribbon sash will complement her bridesmaids’ dresses. Yellow calla lilies would make an exceptional bouquet for the bride to carry.

The Thank Yous

Send your guests home with pink or yellow wedding favors. Be original and impress your guests by giving each couple a yellow art deco starfish or calla lily wine stopper. Pack some sweets up in a yellow favor box tied with a pink bow. Lay a yellow rose tea towel at each guest’s place setting. Place a note card with a bright yellow daisy set on a pink background that thanks the guests for coming with your wedding date information on it.
