Every generation has something special that they leave a mark with on this world. Something that everyone adopts and accepts as the hallmark of that generation. One of those is the trendsetting millennial pink. A dusty rose that has made its way into home décor, fashion, makeup and virtually every part of our lives. It is now also taking over weddings. Ranging from dominating to accentuating, millennial pink can be used in so many ways. But one thing’s for sure: it is a favorite among young couples looking to tie the knot.

Couples have long abandoned the tradition of wearing only black and white. Millennial pinkis such a popular color in everyday clothing. It’s no wonder it made it into the bride and groom’s outfits. From brides opting for full pink gowns to make a statement, to subtle details like the lacing or beading on the dress, it is a color that works wonderfully with white to create a gentle look. As for the groom, while a millennial pink suit is an option, it is more commonly seen in details such as the handkerchief, shirt, or cufflinks. Women have also popularly included it in shoes, accessories and even makeup.
It is a great way to tie in the looks of the bride and groom. Since it gives each person the opportunity to create the look they want! And have the common element of millennial pink details. If you want to stick to a white wedding gown, you can have the bridesmaids wear millennial pink dresses.
The color pink is so often associated with flowers. It’s found in so many beautiful varieties. When talking about wedding details, we first have to take a look at the bride’s bouquet. You can have so many stunning combinations – both modern and traditional – that feature millennial pink flowers. They can be the dominant flower, like tulips, which are usually tied in a bouquet all by themselves, or they can be an accent in a wildflower bouquet. As for the decorations around the venue, you can easily place pink flower arrangements on the tables. Or even small bouquets tied to the backs of chairs.
Many couples choose to give a glimpse of the wedding to their guests through unique wedding invitations. It gives them the chance to think about the outfits and gifts to match the theme. Which can help create a beautiful cohesive event. If you want to have a millennial pink wedding, you will want to avoid actually printing the invitations on pink paper. Doing this will make them less legible and a bit overwhelming. A good idea is to put them in a pink envelope, or perhaps tie a millennial pink ribbon around it to make it elegant. If you are having a custom design made for your envelopes, the decorations painted on them can be in the popular pink.
Whether we want to admit it or not, we spend a lot of time sitting at the table. Which is why so much attention is given to the table decorations. And millennial pink is such an easy color to incorporate because you can take it in so many directions. You can set a base with a pink tablecloth, and then layer on white and silver on top. Or you can let your guests enjoy their meals from pink plates. If you want something more subtle, pink napkins are a great touch. And a great way to add some color to an otherwise monochrome table. The food itself can also have some pink hues, and especially the wedding cake. If you’re not a fan of artificial colors – you’re in luck! Because the pale shade of millennial pink can be achieved with natural ingredients.
Putting your generation’s stamp on your wedding is amazing, but you also want to make sure it has your personal touch. Don’t go for millennial pink because it’s popular at the moment, do it because you personally love it. If you are not sure whether you want to commit to it, you can always start with small details that can easilybe changed. And once you get the feel for it, decide if you want to translate it to the rest of your wedding.

When our wedding was postponed due to COVID a mere 3 days before our date, she called us immediately and showered us with well wishes...and worked with us to make sure we were able to secure her for our new date in August.

Kris mentioned to us just how gorgeous these albums are... but we really didn't realize it until we saw our own. These Albums are one of a kind. You won't find this quality anywhere else.
