By now chances are you’ve heard of Millennial pink. In fact, we’d chance that you probably have even read an article or two about it, and have either intentionally or unintentionally bought something that is Millennial pink just because it’s been forced into your pop-culture subconscious. It’s everywhere—overtaking decor, fashion, branding, beauty, your social media feeds...and according to a lot of people, it’s not going anywhere. And we believe it!
So, in lieu of having a pink wedding dress (unless that’s your plan, in which case we say go for it!), how can you incorporate this omni-present color into your wedding day? We’re glad you asked! Your wedding doesn’t have to be all pink everything in order to get a little of that trending rosy tinge, no no! In fact, we think it might be even more successful if you keep the Millennial pink to a minimum and sprinkle it with a very light touch around your wedding in various ways, keeping the rest of your palette more neutral. It’ll seem much more sophisticated using this approach. So, if you’re a little pink averse, don’t be scared to use this color as an accent and not a main player.
Here are some of our favorite ways to get in on this trend for your big day!
Pink Place Setting
We love a creative place setting at a wedding, and Casa de Perrin does it so well! The pink here works so well because it's mixed in with super modern pieces and colors that tone it down. The best part is you can actually RENT most of what you see here, and if you fall in love with something that you can't rent you can buy it for your own home, or better yet, register for it!

Pink Place Cards
