Pastels have always been a popular choice in the world of weddings, especially when it comes to Spring and Summer celebrations. A pretty pastel palette is soft and feminine, and works beautifully as a delicate colour scheme. Read on and indulge in some heavenly pastel delights…
A pastel palette consists mainly of lilac, baby blue, candy floss pink and mint tones. You can focus on all of these colours together, or just focus on your favourites. Each colour complements one another beautifully so you’re guaranteed a divine colour combination.
Wonderful Wedding Stationery
Kick-start your pretty pastel colour scheme with your wedding stationery. It’s the first peek of your wedding day your guests will get, so you want to give them a subtle clue about what’s around the corner. Pastel watercolour designs look wonderful paired with modern calligraphy. Opt for metallic writing for a touch of glitz and glamour. Pink and mint looks gorgeous with gold, whereas lilac is made for silver shades.
The Bridal Outfit
Have you ever considered a pastel wedding dress? Subtle shades of pink or blue are a fab alternative to a white wedding gown. Soft hints of colour teamed with light, tulle fabrics look beautiful as a bridal outfit.
If you prefer the traditional aisle style, why not flaunt your theme through your wedding shoes. A pop of colour in your heels will look lovely peeping out from under your dress. If you opt for one pastel shade, make sure it ties in with your wedding jewellery and bouquet for a completely coordinated look.
The Groom’s Outfit
Why not consider a cornflower blue suit for the groom? He’ll look incredibly handsome in a crisp white shirt with a floral buttonhole. Alternatively, opt for light grey or cream shades for the suit to match this delicate colour scheme. A tie and handkerchief in one pastel shade is the perfect finishing touch.
You’ll be completely spoilt for choice when it comes to choosing pastel bridesmaid dresses. The key is to mix and match different shades of pastel, choosing shades that work together but aren’t exactly the same.
Bouquet and Flowers
There are oodles of options when it comes to your wedding flowers, and you can really get creative with your choice of blooms. Pillow-soft pink peonies, apricot-coloured roses and mint succulents make for a bouquet created in pastel paradise! Flower crowns will complement the bridesmaids’ dresses beautifully and they’re perfect if you’re planning a boho pastel wedding.
Whimsical Wedding Décor
You can have tons of fun with a pastel colour scheme for your wedding décor. From pastel pink table runners and mint green candle holders, the choices are endless. I love the idea of beautiful bloom table centrepieces – match the flowers to your wedding bouquet and place in mint green mason jars. Pastel paper lanterns, bunting or ribbon garlands are a fab way to dress up even the most modest of wedding venues. They’re also a great DIY project for the budget savvy bride.
Delectable Wedding Cakes
A simple white cake adorned with iced flowers in an assortment of pastel shades is a beautiful idea for your wedding cake. Or you could go all out with an ombré wedding cake combining all of the pastel colour palette! This the perfect option if you want your cake to be the focal point of your reception.
Who doesn’t love a pastel wedding theme? It’s delicate and romantic, and the mixture of shades is simply perfect for a Spring or Summer soiree.
