Since pink and red are the colors most synonymous with Valentine's Day, it makes perfect sense that this romantic combo would also be a popular wedding color palette.

1. A Veritable Cornucopia of Pinks & Reds

Why stick to single shades of red and pink when you can have them all?  This luxurious tablescape features cranberry, fuchsia, blush, and wine in the napkins and in the lush flowers.  When paired with gold it makes a truly elegant statement.

2. Simple Wedding Cake Decor

Pinks and reds don't have to be so in-your-face, though. They can also be delightfully subtle, as shown with the red and pink roses adorning this simple wedding cake.  If you love this palette, but don't want it to be too bold, choose to limit the reds to pops in specific places and use a light shade of pink everywhere else.

3. A Statement Piece

This barn wedding featured relatively minimal decor on the stark white walls of the venue, with the exception of the ombre silk draperies floating behind the wedding party table.  Featuring one impactful statement piece is a modern and vibrant way to use this palette.

4. A Darling Bouquet

There are few things more cheerful in this world than a cluster of juicy pink and red flowers. Especially with this bride's crimson manicure, this bright bouquet using roses and ranunculus pops out from her white dress.

5. Festive Papel Picado

Papel picado (the tissue paper bunting featured above) was one of the hottest trends of 2015. If you are hosting a fiesta-inspired wedding and want to use pink and red in your palette, make sure to hang papel picado in corresponding shades throughout your venue to create a festive party environment!

7. A Thoughtful Place Setting

This sophisticated place setting featured a pale blush menu and place card, gold flatware, and a mouthwatering bowl of deep red chocolate hearts alongside each plate.  If this option is a bit out of your price range, simply use a bowl of cherries for a similar effect.

Not every red and pink palette has to be blush and cherry. This modern invitation above uses shades of marsala, tomato, and coral for a stunning alternative to the usual interpretation of this color combination.

You've already got the color palette for it, so why not also also use hearts and arrows?  These tasty cupcakes would be great on a sweet table. You could also use similar decorations for your cocktail stirrers to match!
