Pink is a popular choice for weddings, which is great as it is pretty and romantic all at the same time.
However all over pink is not for everyone which is why mixing pink with a complimentary color is very on trend. That is a huge savior if you have chosen pink as your color and you have found that your groom is not in complete agreement and would like something a little more "manly"!

And don't forget there is not just one shade of pink, you could have anything from a pastel pink to a full on hot pink. Plus all of the shades in between.

The most obvious pink centerpiece is with flowers and to keep the costs down you could have cheaper flowers such as carnations, tulips and roses or peonies if they are in season. Or you could look to have a few flowers for each table rather than a big display.
Use more expensive flowers and then use a cheaper vase, love this homemade tin can vase that has been spray painted pink. Or you could have a glass vase that you have tied a complimentary ribbon to.
Pink candles and flowers make a pretty centerpiece. It could be a bowl with floating candles and Gerbera daisies or have a vase of flowers and then surround it with pink glass votives for an added sparkle.
Also have a look out for pink lanterns which you could decorate with pink petals.

A really easy way to add extra color to your reception room and tables is to use pink tulle. Tulle is fairly inexpensive when you think how far a roll can decorate!
You can use tulle for your table runner or as a slip cloth (square) in the middle of the table.
Tulle can be tied to the chairs and around pillars.
Ribbons can be tied to napkins and then maybe the favor attached.
Pink favors or boxes of pink favors are an extra touch of color to the table too.

You can use pink candy as your centerpiece, this mini gumball machine is a really fun way to display it. Plus it will keep your guests busy! Or you could have a jar filled with candy in your colors.
Candy tables are massive at the moment and there is a big choice of pink candy that you could use for your display. This is also a fun favor too.
Add scoops and mini paper bags to complete the table.
More ideas for candy buffets.
Well if you are having a pink themed wedding, you need a pink cake too. This could be decorated with pink icing or add a more subtle pink look with pink flowers, petals and ribbons. Just one of those things will be subtle not all of it!
