Are you looking for a colour palette that is sweet yet sophisticated? Blush pink is a delicate and soft colour so it makes for a beautiful wedding theme. It’s effortlessly elegant and is absolutely perfect for Spring and Summer weddings. It fits in wonderfully with a country garden wedding theme or can be ultra romantic for a Valentine’s Day wedding.

You can work a mixture of other colours into a pink wedding theme too. Metallic gold and silver accents will add a touch of glamour, whereas mint green is a pastel combination in heaven. It’s easy to incorporate these colours into your blush pink wedding theme to make it suit your wedding style.
The Wedding Dress
Let’s take a look at the most important outfit of any wedding day – the bride’s! A soft, blush pink wedding dress is the perfect choice for the untraditional bride. However, if you’ve always dreamt of a white wedding gown why not opt for pretty pink shoes for a subtle nod towards your theme. A pink belt for your dress will add a dash of colour to your aisle style. And who could resist some stunning blush pink jewellery? Wear just one piece for a subtle hint of colour, or go all out with a necklace, earrings and more for maximum impact. If you’re a boho bride dreaming of a blush pink flower crown, Flash Floozy have a gorgeous range to choose from.
Your bridesmaids will of course look delightful in blush pink dresses, and it’s a colour that suits most skin tones. Rock the mix and match trend with different shades of blush pink, and vary the hemlines between girls. Some of your maids will prefer longer dresses whereas others will look fab in shorter gowns. Why not consider rose gold shoes to complement their dresses? Every girl needs a touch of glitz and glamour!
Pink shades are in abundance when it comes to wedding bouquets so you are spoilt for choice! Your florist will be able to create a floral masterpiece. Pillow-soft pink peonies look beautiful arranged with timeless white roses. Tie with a blush pink ribbon for an ethereal edge.
The Wedding Cake
The options are endless when it comes to your wedding cake. You could choose a simple white icing cake with blush pink peonies cascading down the tiers. I love the idea of a showstopper cake with pink ombré icing – it’ll be the focal point of your reception! Add a little luxury to your wedding cake with a glittery gold cake topper – it’s the perfect match if you’ve decided to use gold accents throughout your wedding day. Pink heart cookies are a fab idea for wedding favours while strawberry and raspberry inspired cocktails will keep your wedding guests cool in the sunshine. Your guests are guaranteed to love this…
The Wedding Décor
Blush pink decorative touches throughout your wedding décor will all come together to really bring your colour scheme alive. Pink and gold ribbon garlands will add a pop of colour to your venue and also provide a gorgeous backdrop for your wedding photographs. Consider using the same flowers in your bouquet as your table centerpieces for a completely coordinated look. Peonies in jam jars are a cost-effective way of decorating your reception tables.
The Wedding Stationery
Your wedding stationery is the first glimpse of your wedding day that your guests will get, so make sure the first impression counts. Watercolour-inspired stationery is a beautiful, feminine way to start your planning process off. Keep the same style of stationery throughout your wedding day – from save-the-dates to the seating plan!
This is such a pretty colour scheme and is absolutely made for the girly-girl bride!
