It is always a great inspiration to see unique colours used in a wedding setting. Today we have been joined by Sarita from Lux Occasions and Berni of Berni Palumbo Photography to see how you can easily incorporate pink and blue into your luxury wedding.
A wonderful way to make your luxury wedding memorable and unique is by adding tones of blue and pink throughout your special day. Whether it’s within the luxury wedding flowers or the decor, including blue and pink ties together the romantic ambiance of your wedding, whilst adding a touch of elegance for your guests to enjoy too.
Colours go beyond pleasing the eyes, for they create sensations of touch, scent and sound. Close your eyes, and imagine Classic blue, ‘The Colour of the Year 2020’ as Pantone announced. With a scent like ‘the sea meets the sky’, the sound of ‘vivid nostalgia’ and the touch of ‘smooth velvet’, your wedding will be a luxurious experience for you and your guests.
Wedding planning can be stressful at times, and being in quarantine can make this feel much harder than usual. So, let us do the work for you, and read about the five best ways to include blue and pink into your luxury wedding!
Adding hints of pink from the classic Calla Lily, introducing crimson to the bashful Peonies or even shades of blue from the sweet-smelling Sweet Peas is what creates the romantic atmosphere for the wedding. Forget the vows; it all starts with your luxury wedding flowers!
Matching these shades of blue and pink within the flower instalments around the wedding venue ingrains that enchanting mood throughout the day, which is transferable for any wedding theme. Rustic, elegant, fairy-tale—whatever the theme—experimenting with refreshing blues and enticing pink luxury wedding flowers emulates feelings of happiness and lasting pleasure, which is the perfect way of starting your marriage.
Rather than relying on pearly whites and ivory tones, why not continue the amorous sensation by blending the colours from the luxury wedding flower to the table linen?
The colour really depends on the mood you want to create. If you want something modern, choose a bold blue to make the tables pop in the venue. To intensify that romantic feeling, using softer hints of pink or blue is a lighter way of emulating the slow-burning romance from the wedding. It’s all about the details, so the more we match, the easier it comes together.
Ah the cake! Since this is the part of the wedding that symbolises the good fortune and happiness for the newlyweds, make sure to be playful with the colours! Having one colour, like navy blue, royal blue, blush pink or even a different shade for each tier will give your cake an effortless appearance. Plus, it’s a lovely way to reflect the vibrancy and richness of your marriage.
This too, allows for affluent designs on the cake to be in a silver, gold or rose-gold colours to emphasise the wonder and elegance for the start of your new life. You could even have a naked cake with blue and pink flowers winding around it, which is a wonderful way of bringing together the coordination with the luxury wedding flowers.
Blue and pink colours woven within the stationary provides an opportunity to add a sophisticated edge to the romance of the day. Rather than having bright colours for the menu cards, place name cards and favours, choose a lighter base of pink, blue or even a transparent colour. Layering this with a gold or silver font sustains the elegance of the wedding, whilst still matching the playfulness of the luxury wedding flowers, and amour from the cake and linen. Adding ribbons, flowers, or any other designs upon the stationary will enhance this luxurious feeling too.
The superb thing about using a blue and pink palette for your wedding day is accessorising the tableware with hints of gold or silver to emulate a sense of decadence.
Perhaps it is matching the rims of the glasses to the gold font of the stationary or using cutlery that mirrors the rose-gold ribbon around the cake. Whatever it may be, you need the little details to go with the rest of the decor to create that immersive romantic feeling. Having napkins in a shade opposite to the linen, but matches with the luxury wedding flowers is the type of detail that will impress your guests, for the coordination reflects that balance and easiness for the rest of your marriage to come!
Adding these ardent splashes of colour within your wedding will radiate romance and magnificence throughout your day, making your wedding even more exceptional. Try it, and you will see how romance touches your senses from these simple colourful details!
