True romance with Pretty in Pink

An example of a wedding theme where the carnation really comes into its own is Pretty in Pink. In this way, you upgrade the wedding decor playfully with pompoms of pink carnations. These beautiful creations really give the dressing of the tables that little bit of extra flourish. For a dreamy and fairytale setting, light pink carnations are a must have to create that sweet, romantic atmosphere. But pink has endless shades and accents to set an alternative mood. Ancient pink, for example, creates a vintage or rustic style. Acidic pink elements are additionally perfect as a supporting colour accent to other main colours at your wedding. And it is this combination of different shades of pink that makes all the difference in the Pretty in Pink theme!

Carnation as a wedding flower

The carnation is ideally suited as a wedding flower. With its symbolic meaning of love and strength, the striking flower naturally fits seamlessly into a wedding ceremony. Yet this is not the only reason many couples brighten up the wedding venue with carnations. "The carnation also has a number of practical advantages," knows Dirk de Vreugd, buyer at Van der Plas. "For example, carnations have a very beautiful colour scheme and they stay good for a long time due to the constant bloom phase. This allows the wedding couple to continue to enjoy the flowers even after the ceremony. Moreover, carnations are available year-round at the same quality. In addition, carnations have an attractive price and Flower Trade Zwirs has a very wide assortment to choose from."
