Tones of blushing pinks are a match made in heaven for wedding day décor. From invites, to the attire, to the ceremony, to the reception, there is nothing that this stunning colour palate will not suit. It instantly evokes an atmosphere of beauty, etherealness and romance.
For some brides and couples it might seem like an obvious choice and indeed, some couples like to shy away from traditional colours, but just because something is considered a classic, doesn’t mean it can’t be contemporary or on trend.
Indeed, this year’s Pantone Colour of The Year is ‘Living Coral,’ a beautiful take on traditional pink or blush.
We take a look at ways to include blush in your wedding day décor.
If you really want to make a statement then why not consider going for a blush wedding dress? It has become a growing trend in recent years for brides to look beyond the traditional colours of white, creams and ivories for dresses and instead seek out gowns with a hint of blush. If that seems like a step too far, then why not dress your bridesmaids, or flower girls in blush and don’t forget to add some blush accents for the groom and/or groomsmen too.
Blush by itself is a beautiful colour, but when you put it alongside some complimenting and contrasting colours, that’s when you hit décor gold! Think of pairing blush with golds, greys, greens and crisp white for a really incredible visual feast for the eyes. Also don’t be afraid to reinterpret the colour blush, with varying degrees of vividness. A pop of hot pink alongside ethereal blush will look stunning.
A pop of blush in your wedding flowers can be both classic and contemporary. If you want to give it a modern twist then try and pair with lots of greenery for a fantastic contrast. Tall candelabras and elegant blush flowers will work amazingly well for a formal feel, as will rustic style wooden boxes filled with blush blooms and interspersed with candles for a more casual style.
Blush works wonderfully well in so many ways around the wedding venue. From accents of blush ribbons on menus, to paper pom poms, chair sashes or draping, to blush pink floral centrepieces, interspersed with pops of gold and lots of candles of differing sizes. To really add that touch of romance consider using uplighters with degrees of blush and or fairylights to set the ultimate tone for the night.
