Pretty in Pink
Set the tone for your romantic wedding day with the right wedding color choices. Pink is a forever romantic color choice that is soft and not overpowering. Stay on the lighter spectrum of pinks, blushes, creams and peaches to set a warm tone and atmosphere. Afloral.com’s romantic bouquet pairs light shades of pink and creams with the classic flower choices. The bouquet is made up of pink anemones, peach tone peonies and whimsical lily of the valley sprigs. The bouquet’s look comes together with a touch of greenery and a tied lace doily to complete the look.
DIY corsages are a simple and easy way to save money without cutting corners and skimping on your look. Make your own corsages for the special women that will be there supporting your vows. To create the Pink Wedding Corsage, take one large pink rose bud and accent with two smaller and lighter shade buds and a sprig of white hydrangea. Light chiffon ribbon can be added to a wire and then attached to the trimmed stems of the bouquet or simply tie it around the stems for a finished look.
Set your wedding palette and look with the type of wedding flowers you choose. What better place to start when planning a romantic, feminine wedding than with your wedding flower choices. While you might already have a color scheme idea in your head, you can nail down specific shades and accent colors by choosing what wedding flowers you like in your bouquet.
Customize with DIY
Carry your wedding colors and flowers into other areas of your wedding design. DIY chairbacks are a perfect way to dress up reception chairs and frame the bridal table. They can be assembled ahead of time with little prep needed the day of your wedding and you can incorporate some of the same flower choices you’ve used in your bouquet, boutonnieres and corsages into the project. Using the same wedding flower choices will allow you to order in bulk and save money. Every little bit helps, right?
Afloral.com created a unique, romantic Blush Rose Chairback for your vintage or pink wedding theme. DIY projects like this one can give you a custom look without a custom price tag. It’s made up of only 4 elements that are all under $5 each.
Create this chairback with two large open cabbage roses in a muted, soft pink combined with several vibrant pink french rose buds and smaller accents of cabbage rose buds. Lambs ear leaf spray is used for greenery and gives a fuller and more natural feel to the arrangement. Pink chiffon ribbon is secured on the back of the chair and then looped into a big loose bow holding the flower arrangement. Small buds are trimmed and glued on the ribbon to cascade down the chairback for a feminine, soft and romantic effect.
Wedding accessories can put the finishing touches on your wedding day. All the little things can start adding up fast when you’re trying to style a ceremony and reception. Vintage finds can offer you an affordable alternative. You can pick up vintage teacups, place settings, glass vases (color tinted and milk glass are a vintage must!), table clothes, lace doilies, books, and music sheets at second hand and vintage shops, as well as barn and yard sales.
Vintage items will add a sophisticated and add to the romantic feel of your pink wedding theme. They also allow you to mix and match.

Tea cups are a popular item to style weddings with – their versatility and popularity have created a new trendy wedding theme of tea party weddings.
Tea cups look fabulous on reception tables whether used in their traditional use for a beverage, as a place card or centerpiece.
