Planning A Pastel Themed Wedding
A Guide To Planning A Subtle And Elegant Pastel Themed Wedding
We do a lot of things to ensure that our wedding day is the most memorable day in our lives.
One of the easiest ways to do this is by opting for a pastel wedding theme that speaks volumes about the essence of your wedding.
Nothing is as subtle, calm and romantic as those gorgeous muted shades.
If you want to incorporate soft tones in your wedding whilst making it look contemporary, the pastel theme is your call.
As a one-stop-shop wedding furniture suppler in Wedding Furniture, our team can help you bring your dream wedding to life.
But to get an idea on what to look out for, check out our guide to incorporating moody pastels in your wedding theme to make your wedding stand out.
1)Understand The Colour Palette:
Pastels are all about blushed and muted tone shades.
The most common used shades are blush pink, off white, light yellow and muted grey.
Anything that belongs to the light colour family with either cool or warm undertones can be used.
Now that you know what colours belong to the pastel family, it is time to know how to make the best out of them.
As these shades are light, it is best to use them in daytime weddings and preferably in an outdoor setting.
This way the colours will look extremely rich and the daylight will do justice to its beauty.
Another way to make these shades pop is by using contrasting colours with them.
For instance, using metallic vases with pastel shaded flowers will make the flowers pop.
Otherwise, pair softer shades of pink and yellow with dark accents like burgundy and brown.
2)Strike The Right Balance:
Going overboard with the theme will kill the essence.
That is why it is important to make sure that the colour palette is evenly distributed.
Using these shades with earthy tones will help to make them look even more graceful.
Go for wooden furniture to add a bit of warmth to the whole set up – this will give a sense of comfort in the whole wedding vibe.
3)Incorporate The Shades Flawlessly:
For a smooth flow of the decor, placing everything in the right manner is crucial.
Regardless of what the theme is, the furniture pieces you choose can help bring your wedding to life as it adds texture, colours and detailing.
For a pastel theme wedding, we suggest using wooden furniture or light shaded furniture that will complement the rest of the theme.
For example, use earthy timber tables and chairs with daily lights as accents, gold cutlery, minimalist centerpieces, blush linens and crystal glassware – there is so much you can do!
Here at Wedding Furniture, we have a beautiful collection of gold wire bar stools and white gold finger sofa that would blend in with the entire theme.
Our circle wedding arbor will also work beautifully with your pastel wedding theme.
4)Blend With Floral Arrangements:
When it comes to classy yet breathtaking pastel shades, incorporating floral designs will make things much easier.
For a striking bold floral arrangement, we suggest mixing pastel shades with rich jewel tones and darker foliage.
If you are working with real flowers then go for orchids, pink roses or daisies and decorate with a few seasonal flowers.
You can then go for light floral design on the napkins, tablecloth and even the sofa seat.
5)The Finer Details:
With so much going on, don’t forget the whole purpose of keeping a pastel theme is to keep things simple.
For cutlery, you can go for a matte gold or rose gold and it will suit the theme.
A lightly iced cake, few fairy lights and some soft piano music will tie the entire day in a cohesive way.
