Designing a wedding is such an exciting time, and the options (whilst exciting) can be a little overwhelming. That is why we’re here to provide as much guidance and advice as possible to make planning your big day fun, exciting and something to remember forever. This week, we’re looking at how you can create the perfect pastel wedding, complete with pastel bridesmaid dresses, pastel flowers and pastel invitations.
Beautiful Pastel Bridesmaid Dresses for Your Beautiful Bridesmaids
Powder Pink or Baby Blue? Carrying the Pastel Theme Through Your Invitations
Wedding invitations are another great opportunity for you to reaffirm the pastel theme of your wedding. Whether you go for baby blue, powder pink or mellow yellow, your invitations are the perfect way to provide your guests with a glimpse of what’s to come. If you’re looking to add a bit of extra sparkle to your wedding invite, a touch of gold or silver will ensure that your pastel theme remains strong, but also that your wedding invitations highlight the celebratory nature of your wedding.
When It Comes to Your Wedding Dress, White Isn’t the Only Option
I know what you’re thinking — wedding dresses are surely all white or ivory, right? Wrong. Your wedding dress doesn’t have to be a shade of white; it can be any colour you wish, and when it comes to complimenting a pastel wedding theme, you might want to go for something with a tint of colour to it. If you’re still looking for a more traditional looking wedding dress, you can stick with the paler shades and add hints of pink or peach to your white gown. Alternatively, if you’re searching for a unique wedding dress that goes against the white/ivory grain, you could go bold and flaunt a yellow or pastel green wedding gown. There are so many different choices when it comes to the design of your wedding dress, so be sure to choose a wedding dress boutique that is dedicated to finding you the dress of your dreams.
Did Someone Say Wedding Cake?
Wedding cakes have become just another way to get creative and think outside of the three-tiered box – and when it comes to baking them with a pastel edge, there are multiple ways to achieve this look. Whether you go for the traditional three-tiered look, or you go for the more contemporary ‘wedding cupcakes’, you can colour the cake, the icing, even the stand that the cakes are displayed on, in the most beautiful pastel tones around. You can also add gold or silver sprinkles to your wedding cake, complimenting your wedding invites and dazzling your guests with your subtle touches of glistening magic.
Pastel Wedding Favours? Surely Not…
…think again! Pastel wedding favours are not only possible, they’re down right beautiful! Wedding favours are a great way of thanking your guests for celebrating your big day with you and as a reminder of the stunning wedding that you and your new husband created. Pastel coloured macaroons are the perfect summer wedding favour, whilst handpainted pastel coloured baubles will compliment a winter wonderland wedding. A pastel theme is extremely versatile, and you can incorporate the pastel colours into any aspect of your wedding favours, be it the container, the filling or the ribbon wrapped around the box.
Creating a Pastel Perfect Wedding Bouquet Is Easier Than You Think
One final touch that you can add to your perfect pastel wedding is your wedding bouquet. Bridal bouquets add the finishing touch to a stunning dress and can further accentuate the theme of your wedding. If you’re hoping to create a pastel floral arrangement, mix white and cream flowers with dusky pink and peach coloured roses. A small touch of green will also add to the pastel theme of the bouquet, and if you’ve already added glimpses of gold and silver to your pastel theme, feel free to bring these additional tones in too.
