It was probably Jessica Biel who started it when she married Justin Timberlake a few years ago.
Because she wore a blush pink wedding dress and looked completely fabulous!
Since then, blush has really taken off as a wedding colour choice, for a number of reasons.
The good news for brides is that since Jessica kickstarted the trend there are many more wedding dresses out there in this beautiful soft pink shade.
You can even get your bridesmaids in on the act too!
Team blush with sequins and you’re really on trend. The latest thing to do is to put your bridesmaids in matching co-ordinates, which makes it more likely that they’ll wear their bridesmaid dresses again. And when they look like this, what girl could resist?
This is a look that works perfectly from day to night. Whether you’re marrying in spring, summer or winter. Soft dreamy pink in the afternoon and sparkles for the evening party.
If you’d still rather dress in white or ivory, then leave the blush and sequins up to your girls and maybe wear sequin blush wedding shoes peeking out from underneath your gown. Maybe you could add rose quartz earrings?
There are plenty of other ways to work blush into your theme.
Your wedding bouquet and flowers. We’d always say choose flowers that are in season which keep your eco credentials intact and also save you money on your budget but roses are in season at every time of year. Peonies are also naturally blush in colour and look wonderful.
Team your flowers with fresh greens like eucalyptus leaves.
This is where you can really embrace blush to the full.
If you’re a little bit underwhelmed by the décor in the room in which you’re holding your reception (but it’s in just the right location and on your budget which is why you chose it), remember that you can transform it with draping inside. So an ordinary village hall will turn into a fairytale venue. Clever lighting in soft pinks will create that blush effect you’re after and create a warm, intimate atmosphere. This is something we could help you with.
Remember that ruffles and blush pink are natural partners in elegant design.
The bridegroom and his best man, plus ushers can have blush accessories like cravats and maybe even socks!
