Shell Pink Wedding Inspiration

28th January 2014

Soft pink is a popular colour for wedding day styling. And the great thing about this colour is it is so very versatile. Usually when you think pink, you might conjure up images of so much sweetness you end up with a toothache. Well we can assure you, including soft or shell pink in your wedding theme can be just sweet and girly enough, without having that overwhelmingly pink feel.  //// See with this subtle colour, it’s great to team it with neutral or basic colours that blend, rather than contrast. For example, ivory rather than stark white will go…

The gestures, the recognition that you are looking directly at the one person that you adore above all others, and will go that extra mile for. Sure, it might be an overly commercialised consumer-driven non-holiday, but it's a bit of fun and it's an opportunity…
