Preppy Pink and Green

PALE PINKS, FUCHSIA, and GREENS

I'm always a fan of pattern. So when I came across the pattern design of SuTurno (below, top left, image © SuTurno), the beautiful combo of richer greens and pops of pink instantly drew my attention. It’s such a great palette for a mid-summer wedding filled with dappled light and flickering fireflies. The punch of fuschia in the bridesmaid dresses, photographed by Elizabeth Messina (below right), add a little interest to a preppy pale pink and green palette. And I love the sunset sensibility of the pale pink table photograph, bottom left (also by Elizabeth Messina).

Is anyone planning a pink and green celebration? What do you think about the addition of the darker fuschia note?

  • Is it driving anyone else crazy that the "d" and "e" in the alphabet are reversed?

  • I'm planning emerald green and blush pink, with white as the accent. My MOH is working hard to convince me to throw in a pop of fuscia or magenta- that I need to have a bold color otherwise my wedding will look like a simpering, stuffy, English affair.
    My dilemna is that I love the vintage, English, dinner party feel of my colors. I don't want big and bold, but elegant, simple, understated. I also don't think there's enough of a contrast between my emerald and fuscia.
