With the release of the new Barbie movie, the Barbiecore aesthetic is having a moment. That includes the wedding world! As a planner, I’ve noticed brides thinking pink more than ever. However, what should you do if your partner doesn’t love the idea of having pink all over the place on their wedding day? Thankfully, there are plenty of elegant ways to incorporate the Barbiecore aesthetic into your design without going overboard. Here’s how!
6 Ways to Incorporate Barbiecore Into Your Wedding
Pink Bridal Party Dresses
Pink bridal party dresses are a great choice if your partner doesn’t like pink since their bridal party can wear a different color. Plus, there are so many shades to choose from! Blush gowns will give a subtle nod to Barbie, while hot pink gowns are a bold choice inspired by the classic logo. Or, choose a variety of shades to create a pretty pink palette.
Pink Bridal Bouquet
A blushing bridal bouquet is also a good option for those with pink-opposed partners since they can choose a different, complementing shade for their bouquet or boutonniere. Your florist can help you select flowers in various shades of pink to create a stunning, Barbie-inspired arrangement. Hot pink roses and sweet peas are popular choices for brides.
Pink calligraphy on your wedding stationery is another fun way to incorporate the Barbiecore aesthetic. There are endless opportunities to add tasteful splashes of your favorite color, from your ceremony programs to your menus and place cards. You can even recreate the logo font if you’re committed to a Barbie theme!
Using pink taper candles in your tablescape design gives a subtle nod to Barbie. Since they’ll mingle with the other colors and design elements you choose, they’re the perfect compromise between having pink everywhere and avoiding it altogether. Rosy linen napkins and menu tassels are also fun, understated options.
What could be more fun than a hint of pink peeking out when you twirl your gown? Pink shoes are the way to go if you’d like to stick with a traditional white bridal gown but still channel your inner Barbie with your look. You can also consider other pink accessories, such as a pink hairpiece or jewelry.
Finally, consider serving rosé or pink cocktails at your reception. Everyone loves an Instagram-worthy drink, especially at a wedding. And nothing looks prettier than a blushing pink cocktail topped with edible flowers!
