A Little Color Psychology For Ya

What Does the Color Pink Represent?

The color pink represents compassion, nurturing and love. It relates to unconditional love and understanding, and the giving and receiving of nurturing.

Perfect! Just what I need to surround my wedding, and marriage!

A combination of red and white, pink contains the need for action of red, helping it to achieve the potential for success and insight offered by white. It is the passion and power of red softened with the purity, openness and completeness of white. The deeper the pink, the more passion and energy it exhibits.

Ok, so I have a little white mixed in there. Good, good.

Pink is feminine and romantic, affectionate and intimate, thoughtful and caring. It tones down the physical passion of red replacing it with a gentle loving energy.

Yep, that sounds like me! :D

Pink is intuitive and insightful, showing tenderness and kindness with its empathy and sensitivity.


In color psychology, pink is a sign of hope. It is a positive color inspiring warm and comforting feelings, a sense that everything will be okay.

Awesome. If anything happens on my wedding day, I'll be less likely to freak. And everyone around me, too.

Pink calms and reassures our emotional energies, alleviating feelings of anger, aggression, resentment, abandonment and neglect. Studies have confirmed that exposure to large amounts of pink can have a calming effect on the nerves and create physical weakness in people. Violent and aggressive prisoners have been successfully calmed by placing them in a pink room for a specified amount of time.

Yay! So I'll be a welcoming vision walking down the aisle. And creating physical weakness in people? Well, I want my groom to be weak in the knees when he sees me. I've got all my bases covered ;).

Hee hee. I love personality stuff like this. For as long as I can remember I've always been obssessed with color meaning, astrology, anything describing "personality." I don't know why! This was a fun way to brighten my spirits about the color of my dress. And what does white mean, for all you traditional brides?

The color white is cleanliness personified, the ultimate in purity!! This is why it is traditionally worn by western brides, and the reason why doctors wear white jackets.

White is color at its most complete and pure, the color of perfection. The color meaning of white is purity, innocence, wholeness and completion.

In color psychology white is the color of new beginnings, wiping the slate clean, so to speak. It is the blank canvas waiting to be written upon. While white isn't stimulating to the senses, it opens the way for the creation of anything the mind can conceive.

I've taken this information from the website that I linked to on the right side of the page. Each color has really long explanations,and you can apply it to your life as well. Find your personality color, the colors of other people you know, or figure out which color representations you should work into your life more. According to this site, there are reasons why you like and hate certain colors. Interesting stuff!
