I never really liked the color pink growing up. It came across as very girly and growing up with 3 boys there was no room for girly! Black has always seemed very classic and chic to me and a total staple in my wardrobe.
A couple years ago I did a reception for my friend Julie. Her colors were pink, white, and black. Her arrangement was adorable down to the Good&Plenty she had me spread around on the white linens. Now pink is one of those colors that I like. Can't say I love it, but there are a lot of shades and tones of pink that if done right can look very elegant or playful.
This color board was fun to do since it isn't super girly. I like the modern look of the flowers, playfulness of the cake, and the small touches with the candy.
Also using a basic black dress with a ribbon in pink is great because your girls can wear that dress again by just taking off the ribbon. I love being able to pick versatile things for weddings. In reality it is one day out of your life and make it memorable, but also try to make items repeatable!
