10 Ways to Incorporate Pastel Colors into Your Wedding

Consider this soft palette for your spring nuptials.

Spring is officially in the air. The days are getting longer, the weather is becoming warmer, and the flowers are beginning to bloom. Just as autumn celebrations bring about more ceremonies and receptions with rich, dark palettes, spring soirées tend to feature lighter hues that provide a soft, romantic feel. If you're desiring a color palette that's not quite neutral but still features light tones, consider pastels. 

Pastels can work for nearly any wedding regardless of season, but they're especially ideal for spring nuptials. The lighter tones will instantly add a romantic look, as well as the fresh vibe that spring evokes. Many brides are familiar with the popular blush color scheme, and we encourage couples to seek out lighter shades of other hues, including blues, lavenders, greens, yellows, and oranges, that provide a similar soft look within your desired theme.
