A Glamorous Pink and Black Wedding


When we think of pink and weddings, what likely comes to mind is a very girly wedding based around a soft pastel pink. While that is certainly lovely, it is also possible to plan a very high-style wedding using a more vivid shade of pink. This is how to plan a glamorous pink and black wedding that will wow your guests.

For an ultra-glam style with a vintage flair, choose a bold pink. A shade approaching a hot pink would be ideal. Other elements to keep in mind are shine and texture to add elegance throughout your wedding. You will also want to choose a chic pattern which combines pink and black. A trend right now is to mix several patterns, rather than just using one. Damasks, scrolls, and architectural designs will suit the theme beautifully. A signature motif could also be used for a glamorous effect. I once saw invitations which had a large black chandelier in the lower corner done in letterpress; something along those lines would be fabulous. Line the invitation envelopes in your pink and black pattern to tie it all together, and you will have wedding invitations which are destined to make a smashing first impression.

Pink is really easy to fine when it comes to wedding flowers, but not all varieties will be suitable. Chic and sophisticated blossoms like orchids, roses, and lilies will hit the right note. Avoid any flowers which are too cutesy, such as gerbera daisies for your glamorous wedding. A big cascading bouquet tied with a black satin ribbon would be gorgeous for the bride. Make it even more special by pinning a sparkly pink brooch to the bouquet wrap. Custom crystal bridal jewelry to match would be incredible.

Obviously for a pink and black wedding, the bridesmaid dresses should either be pink or black. Although black is safe, it can be pretty boring, so personally, I would go with the pink. Choose a sophisticated and sexy pink, not a prim or sweet rose hue, and pair it with a dressy fabric like silk satin. If you like long dresses, a halter style would be great for the bridesmaid dresses, or opt for a short and modern bubble dress, which will just scream “party!”. For the bride, a white gown with black accents will be very chic and it also happens to tie in with one of the strongest trends in bridal gowns right now. Give your bridesmaids custom jewelry in your wedding colors which complements your own bridal jewelry to give the entire wedding party a cohesive look.

At the wedding reception, glossy black chandeliers suspended over the tables will be fabulous. Perch centerpieces of vibrant pink blossoms on tall vases, either clear or black. Include a few pink anemones with black centers in amongst sophisticated blossoms like orchids and lilies for gorgeous table decorations. Set them atop tablecloths in your pink and black pattern, or an use all pink linens in an elegant shantung. A beaded black napkin ring can be your touch of black on the table; it will look great near decorative menus at table.

Finish off your glamorous pink and black wedding with a pink fondant covered cake with black accents. A black ribbon trim around the base of each tier would be simple, but striking, especially in combination with hot pink sugar flowers. Or go for a more restrained design with an ornate black monogram on the side of the center tier inside an oval on a pink cake. A third option would be to replicate your pink and black pattern all over the dessert; use a slightly different design on each tier for the ultimate in a chic wedding cake that will look as good as it tastes. Let the pink Champagne flow, and you will have a festive, stylish, and glamorous pink and black wedding.
