Blushing Bride-to-Be: 12 Pink Wedding Accessories

Posted September 21, 2011 by EmmalineBride | ♥ 1 Comment

I (Emma here!) am wholly obsessed with the color pink. Hot pink, baby pink, blush, coral, fuchsia, salmon, peach… you name it, I subscribe to it. In fact, as I type this even my fingernails are decked out in one of my favorite colors, Too Hot Pink to Hold ‘Em. So, when I spotted a few swoon-worthy finds in blush-toned hues, I couldn’t resist the urge to arrange them all in a pink wedding accessories round-up. I have a feeling this is just the beginning of a very lovely series on pink since there are way too many to fit into just one post! So, let’s begin, shall we?

First up we have a gorgeous garter with a pink rosette atop a lovely layer of lace. This is one of the prettiest garters ever! Take a closer look…
