Pink and Green Wedding Ideas: wedding color combos
Pink and green wedding ideas
- Finding the wedding planner in you
While I am not a professional wedding planner, I made the decision to plan my own wedding. It was an amazing, lovely and joyful experience. Indeed every sweet adjective you could think of. Yes, it was very hectic and busy to go about it, akin to taking on a second job but I thought the experience was so well worth it.
The love for coming up with creative wedding ideas stayed with me for sure and I find various wedding color combos to be appealing. This hub will discuss ideas for a pink and green wedding color combo.
Do you have the time?
If you think that you can section out the time to be a very active participant in planning your own wedding, you might feel uplifted by how much you are able to impart your own creativity in the wedding planning. When you see everything pulled together by your decisions and input for the wedding celebration, it can be very satisfying and add to the impact of your already joyous occasion of marriage.
Budget friendly wedding planning
If you should find that you don't have sufficient time for planning and still have to hire a wedding planner, you can approach him or her with some of your ideas already in place.
Deciding on your wedding color combo is one of the main wedding ideas that you can come up with on your own and then go from there with the elements you might want to have for that wedding color combo. If you think you might want to choose a pink and green wedding color scheme, then there are lots of pink and green wedding theme ideas listed below for you.
Already knowing a lot about what you want in your wedding ceremony and reception can provide a lack of need for a significant amount of consultation with the wedding planner. This might reduce costs when you speak with the wedding planner and negotiate fees.
You can be clear that regarding the wedding planning, you are already bringing a lot of your own ideas to the table. You mainly need assistance with organizing and managing these ideas and executing them on your big day.
Your wedding planner can be instrumental in bringing all of the ceremony and reception ideas to fruition for your wedding day while you just focus on getting married to your soulmate!
The wedding of your dreams
As you consult with your wedding planner or plan your own wedding of your dreams, you might have a certain vision for the day that includes very specific ideas about theme and a specific wedding color combo that you love might be integrated in that.
Nevertheless, as you imagine your wedding day and the theme, you might not be concentrating so much on specific wedding color combos. Instead you might be enthralled with the idea of a certain setting such as:
- a beautiful beach wedding
- a charming rustic barn wedding
- a majestic cathedral wedding
- a quaint little chapel wedding
If you are not focusing on a specific color theme for your wedding, you might even end up choosing neutral colors like cream or off white. You might like an all white, brown and white or classic and elegant black and white wedding and focus on other details in the planning that have nothing to do with the colors.
Color themed wedding
Color themed weddings often start off with a plan for what color the bridesmaid dresses will be. The groomsmen attire, the flowers, the church and reception hall decorations might all be chosen to match well with the color of the bridesmaid dresses.
When selecting two or more colors for a color themed wedding, you might want to consider the most complementary colors as well.
Nevertheless, colors that you might have never considered to look good together often do look good together if you give them a chance by looking at some photos for example.
Pink and green wedding
If you do indeed choose to have a specific color theme for your wedding, perhaps you might like to consider the pink and green wedding color combo. It is a fun and spirited theme, a little off the beaten path.
This more unique combination of wedding colors can really show off your individual personality.
Would you consider a pink and green wedding for yourself?
Who has a pink and green themed wedding?
I've personally known at least one couple that had a pink and green themed wedding. In recent times, more and more people are choosing the pink and green wedding color combination. While still unique, it is generally gaining in popularity. When I see photos, I always find the combination of colors interesting and when I think of who might choose these colors for their wedding, I think they might:
- be fun, fun loving
- love color, generally wear a lot of color in their daily fashion choices
- generally have a unique sense of style for all things from the clothing they wear to the furniture they select for their living room
- be young (under 30) or young at heart
- have a bit of a daring, funky, spunky, punky rockstar personality that is eager to come out
- like tattoos?
- but wait, you might also like the pink and green theme if you are preppy. Inspired by J Crew for example, many people who consider themselves to be preppy also love pink and green (especially the Southerners here in the USA where I am writing)
Of course, that's just my opinion when I think of this color choice. This just shows that so many different types of people with various personalities might like this colorful choice for their wedding color combo.
If you do like the idea of having a pink and green wedding, do 2 or more of the bulleted points above apply to your personality?
Planning a pink and green wedding
Planning your pink and green themed wedding will be lots of fun. Oh, where do you begin? How about using the bridesmaid dresses as a starting point as I mentioned earlier.
You might want all of your bridesmaids to wear pink bridesmaid dresses or you might want all of them to wear green bridesmaid dresses. Alternatively, you might alternate the colors. So, among six bridesmaids for example, three will wear a pink dress and three will wear a green dress. Personally, I prefer selecting just one of the two colors (pink OR green) for all the bridesmaids to wear.
The bridesmaid dresses
As you select the color of the bridesmaid dresses (pink and/or green), you still have a plethora of options because you need to consider just what shades of pink or green you would like. Would you like pale pink or fuchsia? Would you like lime green or a green hue that is not so bright?
You can shop around at various stores in person or start a search online. If you find a dress you like online, you should definitely request that a fabric swatch be sent to you in the color of your choosing. The dress manufacturer should be happy to provide the swatch and send it to you promptly in the mail.
If you were going to have a pink and green wedding, would you prefer your bridesmaid dresses to be
Pink and green groomsmen attire
Flowers for your wedding
When I think of a pink and green themed wedding, I immediately think that pink roses, pink carnations or pink gerbera daisies with lots of greenery would be beautiful.
The flowers for your wedding are something that you will want to give sufficient thought to as you plan the pink and green color theme.

Wedding ceremony venue and reception venue décor
You probably will not want the linens such as the table clothes and cloth napkins at the reception venue to be the same color as the bridesmaid dresses. You might prefer accents such as the flower centerpieces on the tables to have the pink and green theme that is found in the dresses and bouquets. You might enjoy finding just the right unique decorations without being to overpowering with the colors.
Bringing the pink and green wedding color combo into foods especially the wedding cake, other desserts and confections
I can imagine having a blast at a pink and green themed wedding that has
- pink cotton candy
- a pink bubble gum machine
- an ice cream station with ice cream flavors such as strawberry and pistachio that are specific to the pink and green wedding color combo
- candy favors with pink and green jelly beans and more
There are countless ideas you can come up with.
While I could not upload the pixelated image, I recommend the two piece woven organic green favor boxes from myweddingfavors.com. They are really nice and can be just right for holding your jelly beans, pistachio nuts or whatever delight you choose as an edible wedding favor for the pink and green wedding color combo.
