Spring is the perfect time to utilize a fresh and soft color palette of pinks, lavenders and blues. Today we’re sharing pastel wedding ideas for your sweet spring wedding.
Pretty in Pastel
A pastel color palette is lovely for a spring wedding because the colors match the soft hues of blooming flowers, the blue sky and sunshine. Incorporate as much pink, purple, teal and blue as you can in the decor, flowers and attire. Choose a venue that compliments your colors – like a big rustic barn with lots of space to add your own personality. With this color palette and a gorgeous venue, you’ll have a wedding that’s sure to shine.
A Sweet Ceremony
A pastel wedding calls for a ceremony with sweet details. If you’re hosting your ceremony at the same place you’re holding your reception, carve out some space for a pretty altar backdrop. Pastel painted doors setup together with some lace and a chandelier are the perfect backdrop for your vows.
Line the aisle you’ll be walking down with soft florals tied with lace or chiffon ribbon, and add some fun to guest’s chairs by adorning them with streamers or ribbon in your pastel wedding colors – it’s the perfect whimsical touch to go with your gorgeous altar backdrop!
A Rustic Reception
Decor for your pastel wedding reception can be just as sweet as your ceremony. If you’re hosting your wedding at a barn venue, then your work is already halfway done for you because the setting alone will add to the look and feel of your wedding day.
For centerpieces, use pastel painted mason jars to hold your flower arrangements – both the vase and the flowers will add lovely pops of pastel color to your tables. Add lots of tealight candles for a romantic glow once the sun goes down.
Another rustic detail to incorporate – use wooden boxes and crates wherever you can for rustic but useful decor. A stack of sturdy crates creates a lovely cake or favor table, and wooden boxes on top of tables are perfect for holding cards or favors or can act as a drink stand. The ideas are endless!
The Finishing Touches
The finishing touches for your pastel wedding are going to be what makes the day special. Pastel pink jewelry that compliment your gown become special keepsakes down the road. Your bridesmaids dressed in various shades of pink, blue and purple will look lovely as they stand by your side at the ceremony. Sweet little bell jars to hold treats for each guest cast the perfect shade of pastel blue and match your theme perfectly. There are so many ways you can bring color into your wedding day. With all of these special details, your personality will shine through to your guests making this a wedding to remember.
