Pink has always been a staple accent color for weddings. Pink is one of the most common color choices for bridesmaid’s dresses, making an appearance in nearly 30% of all weddings in the United States. It’s hard to plan a wedding without considering pink as a main decorative accent to the standard white color scheme, which make pink wooden roses all the more attractive. The color pink also has a rich history and is considered by many to be of significant symbolism for wedding ceremonies.
The History and Meaning of the Color Pink
Named after wildflowers called pinks, the color pink’s name was taken from tattered edges of these beautiful blossoms. Commonly used as a verb, the expression “to pink” means “to decorate with a perforated or punched pattern” and dates all the way back to the fourteenth century. The color itself, however, did not receive its common name until the seventeenth century. We continue to this day to call that particular color pink.
While there are several shades of pink, it is a highly recognized color and is involved in nearly every wedding décor color scheme in some shape or form. The color pink is one of the most feminine colors out there, and is widely recognized and used as the color to indicate “for women”. It also is a clear symbol for comfort, pampering, and romance. So when you decorate with pink wooden roses at your wedding, it is said to represent a romance that will last a lifetime and burn with fiery passion.
