Soft, ethereal and eternally romantic, we showcase the very best of blush-pink for your big day!
It’s beautiful, it’s stunning, it will endlessly speak the language of love… we are of course talking of the timelessly classic blush-pink! First laying eyes on this most romantic of rose-bud hues through The Thorn Birds, my love affair with blush-pink began when Meggie descended the big staircase in her ashes-of-roses gown to the admiring stares of all the gentlemen present, and one in particular… haven’t seen it? Oh my goodness me, do so immediately!
If, like me, you see this colour and can’t help but think of romance and love and a life spent together, then consider theming your day around the beautiful blush-pink. Here, we shine a spotlight on our favourite ways to incorporate this beautiful colour scheme…
Think soft tulle in layers of cascading skirts and you will be doing this delicate colour justice. Teamed with a sweetheart neckline, this sensational gown from Cosmobella is perfectly pretty, whilst its fishtail cut and flair adds a little hint of seduction.
Blush-pink is perfect if you’re searching for a more relaxed, bohemian vibe. When combined with flowers and worn in a headdress or hair vine, this look is both feminine and free-spirited.
The perfect way to accent with blush-pink, we love a pair of satin heels shot through with a shimmer of metallic thread for a hint of sparkle.
If a blush-pink dress is too much for your to consider, why not dress your maids in this beautiful colour instead? Mix and match lengths and styles to suit your best girls and choose Grecian-goddess, layered soft skirts in tulle for an endlessly romantic look. We love how happy this real bride and her girls look (must be the pink), and for a little more sparkle, we have fallen in love with this maids’ look from Jenny Yoo…
Blush-pink roses and peonies are the perfect way to introduce this colour into your big-day proceedings. Either in your hand-tied bouquet or in your decorations, this colour adds real charm and romance to your day. And why not get a little adventurous? We love the idea of decorating the entrance to your venue/marque with a Butterfly Bush or ‘Pink Delight’… growing up to 15 feet high, the ‘Pink Delight’ dazzles passers-by with a full summer of fragrant, blush-pink flower clusters!
What a way to make a clear statement of intent… send out blush-pink invites to let your guests know what lies in store! We love the beautiful array of ‘create-your-own’ designs from Imagine DIY.
Rose-pink tainted trinkets on your tables that catch the light will look gorgeous! We love votive tea-lights and oversized blooms in antique-effect blush-pink vases. A simple pink table runner will pull this theme together, although consider dressing it up with gold sequins for a glamorous effect.
Oft neglected, your cake affords you the ideal opportunity to continue accenting a colour theme. We love the delicate blush-pink and pearl flower effect here… and for maximum impact, do consider placing your cake in front of a gilded frame or an oval mirror.
