Subtle pink is what you’ll see in a blush pink wedding; lavender makes an appearance and we find that the two hues make a wonderful pair. If soft and enchanting are what you have in mind to accompany your chosen theme, take this wedding inspiration and grab the ideas you love the most.
Details for a Blush Pink Wedding
Thanks to its timeless and stylish beauty, blush pink has been a popular wedding theme regardless of the season. It is feminine, classy, and versatile, easy to incorporate into any style, from chic rustic and vintage to bohemian and contemporary. This millennial hue also offers many ways to decorate your ceremony and reception venue, whether a barn, garden, or any indoor location.
Even those who want to avoid feminine pastel hues end up using blush pink in their décor, accessories, dresses, or table setting. From blush linens to pink bridesmaid dresses and floral designs, it’s a favourite wedding colour you can use as an accent hue or primary motif.
Colour Palettes for a Blush Pink Wedding
Blush pink blends well with different wedding colours, such as gold, blue, gray, purple, and other neutral tones. It’s soft, dreamy, and an incredibly convenient colour choice, no matter the formality of your celebration. However, you can mix it with bold hues, like deep purple, burgundy, and fiery red, for a vibrant and playful combination.
You’ll also fall in love with the stunning navy and blush pink combo, creating a unique blend of a masculine and feminine style. But if you want to stick to light-coloured tones, soft pink and lavender make a swoon-worthy pair, while sage and bashful blush offer a whimsical and ethereal feel.
Food for a Blush Pink Wedding
Blush pink is naturally sweet and delightful, so there’s no reason not to include luscious desserts on your menu and wedding food. Besides the cake, bring out the cookies, candies, cupcakes, and pink marshmallows. You can also set up a majestic dessert bar with eye-catching pink-coloured macarons, fun cake pops, strawberry whoopie pies, and all your favourite sweets.
Customised fortune cookies are also exciting additions to your reception table. They can be personalised and handmade for your special day and come with your favourite quotes and sayings inside. It’s a great way to add an element of surprise and fun to your wedding.
Table Setting Style for a Blush Pink Wedding
Your centrepieces are the focal point of your wedding table, so make sure they accentuate your blush pink theme. Thankfully, there are endless ways to integrate this versatile colour into the table setting, from your floral arrangements and dinnerware to your choice of napkin and table cloth.
Even the smallest detail and the slightest change can take your tablescape to the next level. Elevate your centrepieces by adding taper candles or scented ones for a pleasant aroma or set up wood lanterns and pair them with fresh blooms for an organic look. Then dress up the chairs with your wedding flowers and light pink fabric to complete the design.
Wedding Dresses & Accessories for a Blush Pink Wedding

You don’t want to overdo your look with excessive accessories, especially if you already have a bridal gown that features opulent beadwork and textures. You can wear a stunning pair of statement earrings or settle with the prettiest bracelet for extra bling. A simple rose gold necklace can also add a small sparkling detail to any bridal style.
Bouquets & Boutonnieres for a Blush Pink Wedding

Pink peonies and roses are the primary floral choices for most couples. However, you can also select from apple blossoms, carnations, blush ranunculus, and dahlias. If they’re in season, cherry blossoms, lilacs, and lavenders are fantastic flower fillers, but they can also stand on their own.
