As you know, blush had its hey day last year when it was voted as the most popular wedding colour in almost every article you read. And naturally so, as this pale nude pink is a great subtle colour that works to flatter many skin tones and suits a variety of hair colours, too. However, whilst Blush was a popular wedding colour used last year and continues to make its way into 2018 wedding trends, there is a new colour on the horizon.
Mink is quickly becoming the new go-to for the Bride wanting something a little bit different. And with varying tones of brownish pink, it is a highly versatile colour, just one of the reasons for its ever-growing popularity.
So why choose Mink over Blush?
Mink is becoming incredibly popular as it is a slightly more sophisticated colour than blush which is simpler and more naïve. Mink is so much more than just an autumnal colour – it is nature-inspired and brings more earthy tones with it and a greater richness of colour, than Blush. Instead of looking washed-out or failing to stand out, Mink can be used in a variety of ways to keep your look both natural and chic.
Let’s look at how it can be used for the dresses and guests’ outfits.
Firstly, its natural, earthy tones mean you can mix it with complementary colours such as Shell pink by using contrasting flowers in hairstyles, details on mink dresses and further accessories such as ties and cummerbunds.
Secondly, it stands out against the greenery in flowers especially in the Eau de Nil tones such as Olive leaves and Eucalyptus so it’s sure to wow in any wedding photo.
But its versatility doesn’t stop there; this colour can be incorporated into the design and decoration of your wedding location, too. Think of rustic wedding themes with natural logs and foliage as decorations and flowers with creams, shell and even peach tones which the natural colour of Mink works perfectly with and makes for a stunning wedding palette.
It is a colour that thrives in natural settings, so if you are considering getting married outdoors, or even in a renovated barn or mill, this colour would beautifully complement your surroundings.
Who can wear Mink?
Like any colour you consider for your wedding, there are factors to take into account when choosing what will best suit everyone. For example, if you were going to use Mink for the bridesmaids’ dresses, it is important to assess how well the colour will suit the different hair and skin tones. Mink works perfectly with darker hair tones and individuals with tanned or darker skin but equally, like blush, it can also suit blonde hair and fair skin types. However, it isn’t just the bridesmaids that can wear Mink; coloured wedding dresses are becoming trendier, so if you are considering having a slightly less conventional gown, Mink could be a great choice or used as a highlight in a sash, accessory or in the Bridal make-up where mink is used extensively from eyeshadows to lipsticks.
Who says you need to choose?
Perhaps you could have some of each colour and mix it up a bit?
There is a huge variety of things you can do with the colour Mink and based on its popularity, it won’t be going anywhere any time soon. When you’re looking at 2018’s hottest wedding trends, it’s worth considering the possibilities of this beautiful, elegant colour and the ways in which you can use it throughout your day.
