Whether you’re all about pink and aqua tones or prone to a blush and gold colour scheme with a hint of lavender and mint, we absolutely love how utterly feminine a pastel wedding theme can look. It’s elegant, pretty and in so many cases, a DIY enthusiast’s dream!
You might find yourself busy painting mason jars with ice cream shades of chalk paint or dip dying doilies, or you could be a bona fide outsourcer, choosing instead to hire a team of wedding professionals to create a pastel vision that will wow your wedding guests. Whichever way you choose to approach your pastel styling, our tip is to make sure everything ties together, from the bouquets to the wedding favours.
In terms of personal styling, we suspect a nice blank canvas such as Charlie Brear’s Manira skirt is the perfect starting point upon which you can build in a couple of accents like Harriet Wilde’s blush coloured boots and Marie Canning’s delicate floral jewellery. Moreover, we think you can definitely use your bridesmaids as the cue for your colour scheme.
We’re head over heel in love with the soft pastel tones of Maids To Measure dresses, even more so since they launched their ‘Vintage Maids’ collection, the silhouette and shapes of which seem to perfectly lend themselves to creating a brigade of pastel princesses to accompany you down the aisle.
From floral crowns to macaroon towers, we love the way that this soft palette can cast a subtle glow of colour over your celebrations. It’s a gloriously ladylike way to inject some character into the proceedings and with a matching boutonnière, waistcoat lining or cravat for your beau, there’s no reason why the boys can’t get in on the action too!
