Color Crush: Pastel

Bat those baby blues…
Did you know the Pantone colors of the year are Rose Quartz and Serenity? These are just fancy names for pastel pink and blue. Now that you know, you’ll see pastel blues everywhere! We highly recommend incorporating it into your wedding colors. Here you’ll see dinnerware, bridesmaid dresses, shoes and even the groom’s tie in shades of pastel blue. Notice how the different variations of blue bring a peaceful quality to décor and attire. Pantone chose the name Serenity for a reason.

Pretty in Pink
Pink is always a beautiful wedding color. It’s soft, sweet and romantic. We are completely smitten with the pink slip underneath this bride’s gown. Check out those matching flowers! Speaking of flowers, pastel pink is a wonderful color if you’re choosing to decorate with fresh flowers. You will have lots of options in that color so you can achieve the exact look you want.

Say hello to purple!
Pastel purple is a great way to break up pinks and blues. It’s a gorgeous color that really stands out and you can use it anywhere. Notice the purple macarons shown here and the purple mason jar vases amidst other pretty pastels. We really enjoy using pastel purple on wedding invitations. The In the Garden Wedding Invitation features pastel pink and purple with a bit of greenery. The satin ribbon adds a memorable finishing touch. See more floral wedding invitations and play with the colors to match your wedding beautifully.
