Hot Pink and Black Wedding... Ideas NEEDED!
Hello everyone! I just recently got engaged and we have set a date for July 11th!! AHH! I have so much planning to do with so little time! I am looking at hot pink and black as my colors. I live in Vegas and although it will be hot, the reception in my parents back yard. I want it to be a fun sumnmer theme. I was thinking about getting big table umbrellas for each table with a hot pink top and black tassels around the edge. Also, I've hired Haagen Dazs to set up a cute little ice cream stand (my cousin had it at hers and it was really cute and fun). SO, basically that is what I am thinking. Any ideas or website links would be SO helpful! I need to figure out the bridesmade and groomsman atire, wedding invitations, the bouquet, decorations... basically everything. Even ideas for the whole umbrella idea would be great! Thank you, thank you, thank you!

If there are trees think about hanging paper lanterns in the trees. You could think about hot pink Gerber Daisies with black centers for bouquets. Simple vases or bottles with individual Gerber Daisies and garden flowers on the tables. The bottles or vases don't have to match. Visit my site for some ideas.

I would advise you to be careful hot pink is a very strong color and if you have too much of it everywhere it wont look so hot. Black and hot pink is a big contrast. What if you did the bridesmaids in nice summer dresses in hot pink and they can carry white flowers. You can even have them wear a thin black sash on the dress. The umbrella idea is a good start; I’m not sure about the tassels. What linen are you using on the tables? I think if you do the linen in pink and have the umbrella in pink it will be way too much pink. If you do black linen (which id be too weary to try) then you could do pink flowers at the table in a nice vase with pink napkins? That may look okay it may be a nice contrast.

Well congrats!! Black and hot pink are great colors those are our colors that we use for our company. We also throw in silver. We did our own decorations for our Grand Opening and it came out beautiful and very classy. We did hot pink table clothes with a black runner down the center. Depending on how long the tabel we put mirror and then a glass candle holder and candle on top of the mirror. Then between that we took a small-medium flower pot and wrapped it in silver cellophane. In side that we put stick that were tall and curly and sprayed with silver glitter (bought at walmart) and put them in the pot have to use foam to hold/ We also made chocolate that had to do with our theme and put them in the pots and they were gifts that people could take home. They are a HUGE hit and very simply but make a huge impact. If you have any questions let me know. I can send you pictures.

O my gosh, we have the same wedding date and colors!! That is pretty cool, great minds think alike! I'm having hot pink strapless dresses with black bows on front and little black silk balero jackets. It is super cute!! The guys are gonna wear the hot pink vests and ties with black tuxes. I'm incorporating white and silver with it too which goes beautifully and I love the umbrella idea!

My wedding is next year-July 16th. I am doing black, fuschia, and light yellow as well as white. I know that black and fuschia tend to be fal/winter colors so I threw in a ligh yellow to alter the feel. My bridesmaids are going to be in cocktail lenght dresses with fuschia shoes and my groomsmen will be in the black/light yellow. They're too manly to wear pink?!?!? I am doing lillies in all my colors and I'm getting them from I contacted a local florist and she said she would just charge a fee to arrange them even though I'm not ordering them from her. I can get black and hot pink lillies from that website. You might want to look here because you can find "your" flower in certain colors. If not you can get your flowers airbrushed. I am also doing a pink/black/yellow cake but you might want to look into keeping it in the fridge until you're redy to serve. I live in TX so I don't want mine to melt. I love your ice cream idea. I think that would be a great idea!Good luck

First of all congrats on your upcoming wedding! I am sure it has been exciting and stressful all at the same time. I want to suggest to you that maybe using the hot pink only in the decorations and as basically a pop of color through out, it is a very strong color and so is black and you don't want it to go from fabulous to verging tacky. My second suggestion for you is that maybe hiring a planner they can take all your ideas and come up with one great idea! They set you up with great vendors...and they don't break your budget like some people think they do. They actually can get you lots of discounts! Again congrats! I wish you all the best and if you have any questions don't hesitate to give me a call.

Congratulations on your upcoming wedding. has some nice black flowers they sell. They have a picture of a black wedding bouquet they created using black roses and amaryllis.
Here's a picture of it:

I would suggest making the same bouquet and use a hot/pink satin to wrap around the bottom stem part.
