We feel pretty confident in saying that having a blush wedding will never go out of style. The color is delicate and dreamy, making it a natural fit for the most romantic day of your life. But after being so popular for years on end, most of our once-favorite blush wedding decor ideas could use a refresh. Thanks to Sacramento-based photographer Anna Perevertaylo, this soft pastel color has been given a whole new life. Along with a powerhouse team of wedding pros, she pulled together this amazing styled shoot that has us seeing hearts. Meet blush, reincarnated!
Give your blush wedding a fresh look with these styling tips.
A wedding stationery suite with neutral colors sets the perfect base for adding blush tones here and there. Top it off with modern calligraphy in black ink to add a bit of edge.
Balance out a blush wedding color palette with boutonnieres in darker colors. We're loving the muted tones on these hellebores and anemones.
Flowy Wedding Dress
Blush is all about romance, so if you're wearing a wedding dress, choose a soft and airy style to match. This gorgeous flowy sheath dress is etheral, feminine, and oh-so comfortable to move around in!
Barely-There Blush Bouquet
A fresh take on blush wedding decor is using hints of it throughout your wedding instead of going overboard with head-to-toe pink. Your wedding bouquet is the perfect example — have your florist use flowers in a base color, like white or green, and then add an accent color (like yellow seen here) and a few blush blooms to create the finished product.
Love Quote Sign
We've seen chalkboard signs, paper signs, acrylic signs, and more, but the latest take of this trend is calligraphy on fabric. A simple white gauze strip is transformed into a decorative sign with a short but sweet love quote.
Wedding Welcome Sign
We can't resist a gorgeous mirror sign like this. In the handbook of blush wedding decor, white calligraphy, lush flowers and greenery are total must-haves.
Greenery Ceremony Backdrop
Candles, candles, and more candles! An industrial-inspired setup like this is the perfect modern spin on a blush wedding, but you could pair it with almost any accent color — or stick with neutrals if you're into a chic minimalist theme.
Peach and Rust Accents
For as long as we can remember, gray and gold have been the most popular accent colors for blush wedding decor, so we're excited to see couples (finally) shaking things up. Peach-y, apricot orange tones look extra cheerful and bright when paired with blush. Adding hints of dark rust or caramel brown will bring unexpected richness to an otherwise soft palette.
Centerpieces With Color
In the past, we've seen our fair share of blush and white arrangements — pretty, but not necessarily groundbreaking. We're loving how this punchy centerpiece has carnations, orchids, ranunculus, anemones, and garden roses in a variety of warm-toned colors, with hardly any white at all. The greenery adds just the right amount shape and depth.
Give your blush wedding an "edgy romance" vibe by adding subtle black details throughout. These charger plates act as a focal point for the sweetheart table, and can we talk about those place cards? Obsessed!
Copper Cake Display
If you want to incorporate metallic details into your blush wedding decor, opt for copper instead of gold for the trendiest look. A copper pipe and greenery backdrop like this could be used first at your ceremony, and then repurposed at the reception as a backdrop for your sweetheart table or dessert bar.
Fondant Cakes Are Back
Fondant cakes fell (mostly) out of favor a few years ago, thanks to naked cakes and buttercream frosting, but they're making a serious comeback. The newest fondant cake trend is a clean, simplified look, with one or two accent tiers that bring the wow factor.
