How to plan a beautiful pastel wedding
Choose your colour scheme
The key to a beautiful wedding is simplicity and a colour scheme that runs throughout your whole wedding. We’d recommend choosing two or three main colours (and sticking to them) to make sure your whole wedding looks elegant from head to toe.
We chose pink and gold inspired by our Pastel Perfection wedding supplies – pastel pink looks beautiful and gold adds a touch of glitz and glam to make your pastel wedding extra special! This gorgeous ‘just married’ bunting would really make a statement as your guests arrive at your reception!
Choose matching invitations
A beautiful wedding starts with a beautiful invitation that hints at what to expect at the wedding but doesn’t give everything away. Our range of Pastel Perfection invitations would match this pink and gold wedding theme perfectly!
Pick your pastel wedding decorations
Once you’ve set a date and sent your invitations, the next step is deciding how to dress your venue to impress!
Before you start buying anything, follow this top tip – once you’ve got an idea of what kind of decorations you want, go down to your wedding venue and suss out how many decorations you’ll need. This will help you avoid buying too much or not enough!
As for the decoration themes, here are our decorating ideas for a pastel pink wedding theme.
Pom poms go hand in hand with a pastel wedding – they’re pretty, delicate and so so elegant. One of our favourite pastel wedding ideas is to decorate the end of each pew with them or hang them above the top table at your reception. These pink pom poms would look beautiful at your wedding.
If there’s one wedding decoration we love as much as pom poms, it’s paper fans! These gold paper fans would look beautiful and stylish hung on the walls of your wedding venue.
Create a beautiful buffet
Having a buffet at your wedding? Hang a pink and gold tassel garland like this along the front of your buffet table to match it to the rest of your decorations. Decorating it like this will tie it into your pastel wedding theme beautifully and leave a lasting impression (because people always remember the food!)
Candy buffets are still very popular at weddings so why not set up a fully colour-coordinated candy buffet next to your buffet? Although do be warned, it may look too good to eat!
If you need paper plates, these pink and gold party plates would be perfect for a buffet later on the night!
With matching napkins of course!
It’s always handy to have some paper cups on hand at a wedding buffet. These ones would be perfect for a pastel wedding theme.
Choose pretty pastel table decorations
Your pastel wedding theme should run through every aspect of your wedding (however subtly) and table decorations are where you can really wow your guests with your attention to detail. These gold table numbers would make the perfect centrepiece tucked into a bunch of flowers. Simple but elegant!
White plates with gold detail will look absolutely exquisite – pay attention to how you set your place settings and your guests will definitely be impressed!
How about laying a gold-dipped feather on top of each napkin?
Another lovely pastel wedding theme idea is pink and gold place cards like these. They’d fit your pastel wedding theme perfectly – especially when your guests’ names are written on in gold ink.
Colour-coordinate your cake
If you want your cake to a true show stopper, make sure it ties in with your theme. Even if you’re making your cake yourself, it isn’t too hard to make it striking. We love the plain white wedding cake below that’s decorated with a simple pink cake ribbon and a gold ‘just married’ cake topper. It’s simple, tasteful and a very affordable way to have a beautiful wedding cake.
We also love this pastel wedding cake bunting – doesn’t it look beautiful on a plain white cake?
Cupcakes can be a nice addition to you wedding buffet (you could even put one at each guest’s place setting as a little wedding favour for when they arrive. Even if you’re not making them yourself, pop them into sparkly gold cake wrappers like the ones below to make sure they tie in perfectly with your pastel theme.
Finally, create a lasting memory of your big day with a beautiful pastel guest book like the one below that matches your theme. Ask each of your guests to write a message that you can look back on in years to come to remember your perfect pastel wedding day!
