Rose tinted

Let us analyse pink. It can be vivid, shocking or even lacking-in-responsibility. Hot pinks share the same high energy and as red. Hot pink is energetic, youthful, wild and even riskier than red, due to it’s faddish perception. Bubble gum pinks can look immature. Yet see how the mood instantly changes with plums and fuchsia. If you’re after a more sophisticated theme to your wedding then lean to these richer hues for a more theatrical and sensual feel.

The utter romance and pure talent of Stella de Libero. Lily Anna Rose will be showing more of these amazing pieces. I managed to find more details on the dress but it's in Japanese.

When toned down and saturated the intensity of hot pink is replaced with romance. Sweet dusty pinks and mauves are softer, subtle and sentimental. I think the wedding gown by Stella de Libero perfectly illustrated the use of these hues. 

Which is why pink is the feminine timeless favourite for weddings colours. Think health 'rosey glow' to skin and optimisum for life; 'looking at the world through rose-coloured specticales'. Pink spells: happy and sweet.
