While some brides love the demure sweetness of pale pink, others prefer the bold pop of cheerfulness that can only come from bright pink!  Here we show you three different color palettes with hot pink that we love.

Hot Pink + Metallics

Few palettes represent feminine modern glam like bright pink and gold. It's fun and instantly celebratory, reminiscent of everything from childhood birthdays to New Year's Eve galas.  For maximum sparkle, make sure to include lots of texture such as distressed metals, slick ribbon, and loads of sequins.  Use glittery hearts in everything from centerpieces to favor bags.

Embrace a modern edge by pairing bright flowers with trendy patterns, such as this sequined chevron tablecloth (below).

But if you want to combine this bold palette with a vintage theme, use traditional shapes and elements, like this vase and teacup centerpiece. Stack on top of vintage books and supply plenty of candlelight!

Hot Pink + Clementine

I love the preppiness of a bright pink and orange color palette. It's full of juicy vibrancy and is youthful, without verging on juvenile.  The centerpiece above shows how adding actual clementine oranges to a centerpiece can be a fun way to pull the color through your details.

Bundle up orange and pink in your paper decorations, like festive garlands and clusters of round paper lanterns.

But if you need even more convincing that pink and orange is pretty darn whimsical, just check out this modern wedding invite (below). Seriously, between the cool use of typography and this sherbet-inspired color combo, do invitations get any sweeter?

Hot Pink + Light Pink

Those of us that are fans of Steel Magnolias (and if you aren't, what's wrong with you?), recall Julia Roberts' character's wedding colors: blush and bashful. Some brides just love all things pink--so why bring in a different color?  Adding a variety of pink shades, from cherry to blush can be such a romantic palette for your wedding.  Just look at this gorgeous collection of pink wedding flowers (above)!

And all-pink bouquets (especially in a variety of blooms) have so much visual texture. They look springy and soft, without looking as if your wedding was designed by your pink-obsessed 5 year-old niece.
