What does the color pink signify in marriage?
Many say that pink represents the idea of nurturing, playfulness, affection, harmony and inner peace. According to event planner and wedding expert Dee Lee of Dee Lee Designs in Pasadena, California, pink is "the universal color of love. It is light and airy. It is timeless and elegant." Lee goes on to explain that "there is a psychology to the type of emotions colors evoke. The color pink has always been associated with romance, love, devotion and elegance."
Lee notes that Millennial pink, which is considered a pop-culture phenomenon is generally considered to be "feminine, elegant, and high-end. Its brings that subtle bling to your wedding day. It is not gaudy but the perfect accent to give pink some flair." As for blush, the expert explains that the color is "calming and creates a sense of sophistication. It is a soft, dreamy, yet elegant color that goes well with a multitude of colors and complements various skin tones."

Pink is a popular color for a reason–it goes with a lot of colors. According to Lee, "there are so many ways to go about designing a pink wedding.

Additionally, pink ombré palettes are a beautiful mix of soft and vivid tones."
