Pastels are the perfect colors for spring and summer. Naturally a cooler color combination anyway (you won’t be nearly as hot surrounded by pastels), pastels lend a hand to creating a soft feeling on your special day. Here are a few fun ways that help you have a pastel colored wedding, that still is elegant.
Start with your flowers!! Flowers might seem obvious, but it’s a great starting point. You can add succulents to bring soft greens in. Play with different types of roses and hydrangeas to bring various colors (blue hydrangeas are perfect for this!). Remember because the colors are soft, you will want soft looking flowers that are more delicate in appearance.
How about the ladies standing next to you? Pastel dresses look good on a majority of people. Feel free to put them all in the same color or have them mix and match!! Want to really be bold? Look for water color prints!! They are so beautiful and help add a lot of dimension to the bridal party.
Line the walls with pastel vases. This small pop of color is wonderful for blah spaces. You can also use these vases as centerpieces, at your sign in table, or around your dance floor!
One of my favorite ways to use pastels is at the dinner table. You have your obvious things like flowers to add to the table, but get creative! Linens, napkins, even your plates can be pastel! Wrap pastel colored tulle around the back of the chairs and tie a bow to add a whimsical feel.
