The basic types of pink flowers are numerous and varied, giving you many options for your pink wedding floral arrangements. Pink flowers bring a feeling of romance and softness to a wedding.
Because pink is a shade of red, the feelings of passion that red represent are present, just with a softer, more subtle hint. Pink flowers run a broad range from almost red to the palest flowers; pink, pretty and always beautiful.
Pink flowers would be an excellent choice if you are looking for flowers that represent love, devotion, and warmth with a more delicate presence. Here are some suggestions for basic types of pink flowers for your wedding: Dahlia, Pansy, Daisy, Gladiolas, Lily, Impatients, Peony and Fresia.
Weeping Cherry has delicate pink blossoms that could be used as individual flowers, branches, or draped liked vines over an arbor, to showcase an enchanting early spring wedding. Branches would add height and drama to larger arrangements or on each side of the altar. Wisteria, with its cascades of delicate, soft, flowers adds elegance when hanging from the base of your larger arrangements or bridal bouquet.
Combining the complementary, lighter shades of blue and yellow with basic types of pink flowers will create a romantic, tender flourish. The baby blue of Columbine would pair nicely with the soft pink of Impatiens for centerpieces. Pale yellow, like Jonquils, would match up with Crabapple blooms for a seasonal spring arrangement. Using the brighter shades of these colors will accent your flowers more strongly, but make sure you don't overpower a soft pink hue with bright yellow or brilliant blue.
Contrasting colors are in the green family, so think here about pale greens, like Carnations or Hydrangea, to make your pink flowers stand out. If you can match the tone of the green to the pink, you can achieve a more blended look while still highlighting the pink flowers. Deep greens, like Rose leaves, will join with the more vivid, hot pinks for a dramatic statement for a late spring-early summer affair. Spend some time testing different greens with pink to get the combination you like.
Because pink and red are close cousins, they blend easily to create a more tonal look. You could go with a brilliant red Zinnia as a center flower and then surround it with light pink carnations. This would add emphasis to both flowers and create movement in your arrangements. Tulips and Geraniums would look lovely as standalone groupings or arranged together for the bride's bouquet.
Pink would be an excellent color choice for your wedding flowers if you are planning an Easter wedding. Pink flowers would blend smoothly with the springtime pastels this holiday traditionally uses. Valentine's Day is another great holiday where pink flowers could be chosen. Paler pinks will tone down the more fiery reds and add a gentler, more ethereal, feeling to your flowers. Pink would also work here to tie-in with the Valentine's holiday by offering a hint of reds without overtaking the entire wedding.
Check in garden books, home design magazines, florists, and nurseries to get a look at all the options for pink flowers for your wedding. Flowers; pink, pretty and subtle will bring the passion, strength and love of traditional red, but with a softer, more romantic, touch.
Basic types of pink flowers tend to have a more delicate texture which adds to their charm. If you are looking for an airy, romantic, flower color consider pink flowers for your celebration. After all, romance is what a wedding is all about.
