Colour inspiration is everywhere. From nature to interiors to catwalk fashion which often feeds through into the wedding world. As a general rule the colours chosen for a wedding are generally dictated by the choice of bridesmaids’ dresses. The colour palette should complement the venue; it should also add to the beauty of the space rather than fight for attention. If your wedding reception is being held in a marquee or a warehouse, this is an ideal backdrop for a bolder colour palette; the good thing about blush pinks is that a pastel colour can suit almost any style venue from modern to vintage.
1. Dreamy Blush Weddings
A BLUSH pink wedding theme is one of the most popular colour schemes in 2017; brides and grooms adore it, because blush is romantic, feminine and can match with any themed wedding; bohemian, modern or even rustic. Blush pink wedding gowns are also big news in recent months, particularly dresses with flower embroidery! This style of wedding dress is completely romantic and is a perfect choice for a feminine bride who wants to embrace the pink colour palette.
2. Peonies & Roses
So the flowers! Where does one begin in choosing all the amazing pretty pink flowers there are? Well, the first step is to visit your wedding florist who can show you examples of their wedding work with hopefully examples of pink floral designs with mixes of complementary colours to enhance; and talk through the different colour palettes that can be used for a pink wedding. Pink peonies ‘Sarah Bernhardt’ or ‘Sweet Avalanche’ roses are a must-have when it comes to the wedding flowers, depending of course when you’re getting married, peonies are seasonal and are available around March/April up to early-mid July.
Other flowers worth considering are the upright, soft, feathery and romantic astilbe (also known as False Goats Beard) – available between June and November – of which there are a couple of good varieties of pinks available ‘Erika’ and the more blush pink ‘Europa’.
4. David Austin Roses
Another very popular choice with brides are the fabulous David Austin roses; the popular blush/light pink varieties include ‘Kiera’ and ‘Rosalind’. The really great thing about these roses is they look very similar to peonies with their frilly petals, so for brides getting married outside the peony season they are the perfect choice! The incredible scent is worth the price of these more expensive than usual roses, as commercial roses tend not to be fragrant. Sometimes, if budget does not allow for these throughout the entire wedding.
Great for large scale arrangements such as pedestals, as pew ends or even just for a cluster to be held by the bridesmaids are; hydrangeas – there are some great classic pinks available, most popular are ‘Verena’, ‘Lolly Pop’ and ‘Vendetta’ classical. There is another variety if you prefer a mix of pink and green, which is called; ‘Magical Revolution’ which is more green than pink however. The downside to these flowers is they need a lot of water; spraying liberally with water onto the petals helps to keep them hydrated as they drink through their petals. Also cutting the bottom of the stems into a ‘V’ will enable them to drink more water whilst conditioning them.
