Colors have always had an immense importance when it comes to planning a flawless wedding. Not only that they reflect one’s personality, but also create a genuine atmosphere that would take all their guests to an emotional journey filled with joy, romantics and love. Therefore, it doesn’t matter if you want to achieve a fairytale-like, vintage or a spectacular, old Hollywood appeal, choosing the right set of colors and finding the way to balance them is what matters the most.
Awake the Lighthearted Spirit of Spring with Timeless Pastel
This season, the stress is put on softer shades that evoke tenderness, sophistication and relaxation. Precisely because of this appeal, these soothing nuances have become a real trend among the couples planning to tie the knot in spring. Most importantly, there is a surprisingly wide palette of colors one could combine, including calming lavender, charming blush, dazzling mint, radiant peach, soft pink and elegant powder blue. The power of all these nuances lies in their simplicity, gracefulness and, above all, versatility.

Giving a Wedding Venue the Boost with Pastel
Pastel colors combined with a little bit of glitter are perfect for the majority of venues, seasons and styles. Depending on a couple’s ideas, they can be formal enough to boost a ballroom wedding ceremony or casual for those planning a nonchalant country celebration. However, what is most beautiful about planning a “pastelesque” wedding is that such persuasive, yet gentle tone can be implemented with every aspect of planning, from designing perfect interior to choosing flawless outfits.

Minimalist details like peach ribbons, soft blue napkins, sleek tapers in vintage candlesticks, pastel-shade flowers and vibrant garlands will give an entire wedding ceremony a dazzling vintage tone. Don’t forget about a gorgeous, hand-painted wedding cake and colorful sweets in pastel hues that will attract the majority of guests.
Choosing a Perfect Pastel Outfit
In order to match their outfit with other aspects of their pastel-themed wedding, many brides usually go for some accessories in those colors. This season, Rose Quartz and Serenity that were named the Pantone colors of the year are a definite must. It doesn’t matter if it is a chic belt, pink shoes or a bouquet in soft, muted colors, it will definitely help a bride achieve whimsical, dreamy look. Also, in order to achieve a sense of uniqueness, brides could also go for a pastel-colored gown instead of the traditional, white one.

Break the Monotony with the Midnight Shimmer
For those who would like to complement the traditional pale wedding colors with something more challenging, monochrome-themed weddings are probably the best choice. With the rise of the monochrome minimalism that was incredibly popular in the 1950s, this style is making a serious comeback this year.

Even though many connect this trend with bold colors, sleek lines and unusual, retro combinations, today, those details have been much softer. In other words strong colors like navy, silver, gold or even black, shouldn’t dominate the wedding; they are here just evoke the spirit of the old Hollywood.
Evoke a Tone of Luxury with Daring Design Ideas
Couples who decide for this wedding design are provided with a wide array of choices, from traditionally elegant black and white to daring black and gold combinations. For example, a retro stripey décor, blush-hued candles on marble holders, black and gold invitations, sophisticated silk ribbons and minimalistic white cake combined with bold, designer ceramics and delicate blousy florals will definitely provide the ultimate sophistication.
However, the only thing that matters here finding the golden mean between these strong colors and patterns and not letting them dominate the wedding.
Just Like a 1950s Hollywood Star
Monochrome outfit is perfect for those brides who have always dreamt of walking the red carpet. This style is all about expressing one’s strong personality through the mixture of colors, fabrics and glitter. For example, they could go for a sassy, tie-length dress or even a glamorous, glitzy gown, embellished with an elegantly crafted bouquet and simple metallic accessories.

When it comes to the groom’s outfit, a sharp black suit have proven to be the best option. In order to look like a 1950s Hollywood movie star, he should also select the outfit, texture and design that compliments his figure and the only way to do this effectively is to go for a custom tailored suit.
Choosing between monochrome and pastel wedding decorations is not about making the right choice. Instead, it’s about expressing your personality the right way. After all, there is nothing more beautiful than saying “I do” in the atmosphere you enjoy the most.
