Perfectly Pastel: Throwing a Pastel-Themed Wedding

When you think about a pastel-themed wedding, does your mind immediately jump to spring? While that may be the case, there are many ways to pull off a pastel colour palette year-round. Whether you’re looking for sweet romance, fairytale whimsy, or bold & colourful—a nice mixture of pastel colours can really play up a wedding, no matter the season.

To find the right pastel palette, consider colours you and your fiancé love plus the time of day and location of your wedding. Need some inspiration? Here are some of our favorite pastel colour palette options.

Blush, Pink & Gold

We’re blushing over this lovely pink & gold combination for so many reasons. The soft pink hue elevates the romance while the gold brings a classy-chic look to the table. (Literally!) We love that the palette adds a touch of sweet elegance. For a modern twist, we’re digging the geometric accents with gold trim!

Pale Blue & White

What a dreamy colour palette! Pale blue is very relaxing and would be perfect to use year-round. We love that the hints of foliage work well with the palette. The blue hydrangea is one of our favorite flowers to use and really makes that bouquet pop!

Lavender & Ivory

Lavender is such a peaceful colour that’s beautiful to use all year long. It’s an amazing choice for a garden-themed wedding and encourages guests to feel comfortable and relaxed. It’s also a great option for a daytime wedding because the light purple hue really comes to life in the sunlight.

Mint & Gold

Another great way to add pops of pastel is through your wedding party. Have your bridesmaids and groomsmen wear the same colour or do a gradient of pastel blues, greens, or pinks so everyone loves what they’re wearing! Want to make an even bolder statement? Use pastel colours in your wedding dress! It’s a watercolour work of art, and we’re here for it.

Décor

Don’t forget the intimate details! Florals may take over a large portion of your décor, but there are other ways to add a touch of pastel. Whether it’s streamers, ribbons, or linens—the options are endless! colourful pom-poms are a whimsical addition to your reception area or go for a sophisticated-glam look with large marble pieces as a ceremony backdrop.

Don’t you just want to take a bite out of all of these? The pastel colours really stand out in these delicate and dainty dishes. All of these options are perfect for a garden wedding or even a bridal brunch! Golden accents evoke modern romance and vintage cutlery adds a touch of whimsy.

Invitations

Last but not least, play up your invites with pastel colours! This is the first nod to your wedding theme, so skip the plain white envelopes and go for something pretty. The great thing about pastel is that you can truly mix and match colours that still work within your palette. Choose one colour for the envelopes, another for the actual invitation, and a different colour for the RSVPs. We love the opportunity to get creative!
