Wedding Styling: Pretty Pastel

Full of joie de vivre and romance, our take on pastels is a breath of fresh (spring) air. This look is all about creating a light-hearted space for you and your guests to enjoy.

What we love about pastel styling is the diverse palette. The number of different shades you can play with gives you the freedom to get really creative – soft minty greens, lemon meringue yellows, warming apricot tones, muted lavenders and of course, dusty rose pinks.

To create a stylish but playful backdrop, we hung mint and gold garlands from the ceiling and created a colourful canopy of tissue paper ball decorations. Reams of ribbons were also draped from the backs of chairs to add softness and texture.

With so much colour in the room, we kept things simple when it came to the table. We paired white linen with an ivory sequin table runner to create a neutral base for the centrepiece and place settings.

The table was decorated with flourishes of gypsophila, while butterfly wine glass place cards added pops of colour to each setting. As a centrepiece we used a glass bell jar dome. This is a great way to do something a little bit different. We arranged macarons on a cream cake stand and filled the base with a wreath of gypsophila to really bring the look together.

We displayed the pastel pink and gold foil guest book on a stack of painted trunks and used oversized tassel tail balloons to create a quirky and fun setting for guests to sign in.

For the dessert table, we used old fashioned glass jars full of sweets and a three tiered cake stand lined with cupcakes, meringues and even more macarons. In keeping with the palette, the personalised Mr & Mrs cake topper, patterned treat bags and mint paper bunting added pops of pastel to the space.
