Well, I have to tell you first off that hot pink and black are going to look punky, no matter what you do with it.

If you love the punk look, though, then go for it. You should have a very unique, fun wedding then =)

I haven't seen anything in those colors, but I thought I'd let you know, because someone else on here had the same color options, but I really don't think she was going for the punk look at all.


Edit: Where are my manners?! Congratulations on your engagement, and welcome to the boards! Hope coming here will ease your stress a little =)

dear Alex,

"my colors are hot pink fuschia and black."

Since it's very early in your planning process, I'd like to bet you aren't locked into colors, yet.

If those are the colors you like, then great, go for it. I must say when I thought of that scheme in my mind's eye, one word came to me immediately: Bordello.

Maybe it's just me. Why not ask a few of your friends and see what they think?

I am going to do hot pink and ivory... I found the cutest hot pink shoes, and they're pretty cheap. Not sure if you're thinking of doing colored shoes, but you might like them too :)

I actually got mine off of Amazon though, I think they were less than $20.

I was going to use those colors and still wished I did but I compromised with FH. Add some taupe or champagne in there to make it a little more elegant. Once I get my pictures of the centerpieces I used( i did them myself) I will post them or PM you b/c all I had to do was change the colored water in them to our new color. its elegant in my mind b/c we added a lot of sparkle. Good luck!

i think this is a pretty popular color combo recently (they were my friends colors). as long as you keep the pink as an accent, i think it looks fun. a google search of "hot pink and black weddings" or something like that will have tons of images. congrats!
