Pastel Wedding Inspiration

Have you ever seen such a beautiful + unique wedding color palette?! I know boho neutrals are trendy & in style right now, but pastel colors are the way to go for any couples looking for pops of color without making it too too bright. 


The Invites + Reception Decor

The wedding invitations actually did follow that more neutral trend, keeping it simple so that the colors could pop everywhere else. They featured a super cute sunshine with simple patterns, lines, and solid colors.

The reception decor kept it pretty neutral too, with light pinks, oranges, and pale shades around the board. This worked sooo well because it kept the decor from being overloaded with too much color.

The Color Magic

Now let’s talk about the color-packed parts of this day: I mean did you even see that ceremony arch backdrop?! I’d never seen anything like it!! The installation featured a sunset to match the invites, with ombre colors and even had super cool, curvy painted pieces coming off the sides.

And the flowers are reallyyy where the color magic was at. The bouquets and floral installations highlighted blue, pink, purple, & orange accents with pale browns and greens throughout them. Blue and orange are such an underrated pair for wedding colors! 

They even had the coolest huge, rainbow seating chart sign for their guests. Talk about thinking outside of the box because wowww!

Even Lucy’s VEIL was colorful – it was an ombré veil that started with white, transitioning down to blue. Soooo dope.
