Shades of blush, ivory and gold reign supreme over the day, complementing every detail, right down to the most important: an utterly romantic dress—the stuff dreams are made of. These colors are great for any time of the year, but we are swooning over this theme for spring! Great for your wedding, or a lavish bridal shower.
The perfect invitation will not only fit your wedding theme, but also your personality. We love this Bubbly Affair design, featuring luxe, foil-stamped artistry for an added POP! to your big day. It’s a lively (and lovely) choice to get the party started. And it lends itself perfectly to a champagne tower for your reception, especially with a glam-pour over classic glassware.
For those with 14-carat taste, a gorgeous cake with gold-leaf accenting is truly a feast for the eyes…one that will make a big (and delicious) impression on every guest. Sweet floral centerpieces and settings of regal gold cutlery complete the look. Cheers to ever-after!
Spring is in the air. Today’s light aqua and mint wedding inspiration uses everything we love about springtime: fresh flowers, flowy bridesmaid dresses, and clean and airy colors. If you’re looking for something that feels fresh and bright, say “I Do” to this flawless pink and blue color palette.
From mint-colored bridal shoes to cascading flowers down a three-tiered cake, pick out the things you love most to add your personal style. What really makes this wedding theme sing? It’s these cool hues paired with peach, blush and cream-colored flowers.
Flowers are the life of the party and can be used for a pop of color to gray suits, bouquets and desserts. All you’ll need are cute pink and blue cupcakes to decorate your chic dessert bar for a stunning display.
Find an ornate invitation design in aqua that lets your guests think “elegant and bright” for your big day. Add even more color by collecting mint-colored bottles for your centerpieces and dressing the groom with an aqua tie and pocket square.
We know it’s the details that count, so go ahead and add aqua and mint to all the pretty pieces that make up your big spring day!

Set the stage with a watercolor invitation in pinks and creams. Here are more ways to create a stylish bridal shower:
A polka dot and solid pink tiered cake makes a stunning centerpiece. Something as simple as cake and fondant is enough to make your guests ooh and ahh over the party décor.
Macarons Planning an afternoon tea party? Serve macarons for dessert after the tea sandwiches. These dessert “sandwiches” will have guests going back for more. Top the macarons with freeze-dried raspberry powder for a finishing touch.
Cupcakes Frosted cupcakes garnished with berries—sometimes you only need beautiful cupcakes to decorate your dessert bar. Find a recipe the bride will love, or bake Champagne and raspberry cupcakes for a brunch theme.
When it comes to favors, pick something guests will want to take home and enjoy. Party-sized Champagne bottles are perfect because they’re so easy to put together. Just buy small-sized Champagne bottles and then add a cute, personalized gift tag.
Make the bride-to-be feel special with her very own stylish mixed drink. For this theme, we love a Sweetheart Spritzer made with raspberries and Champagne. Let the party guests make their own Champagne drink at a make-it-yourself cocktail bar.
Keep your centerpieces simple with squat vases filled with flowers. Include flowers in mulberry, raspberry, plum, cream and blush to create a bundle of colors you can incorporate throughout your party.
Use flavors like Champagne and raspberry to inspire a bridal shower theme. Raspberry red adds a beautiful pop of color to flower arrangements, cocktails and cupcakes. When you find a style that fits the bride-to-be, you’ll create one amazing day, just for her. From an ombre effect at the bridal shower, use pink and red hues at all ends of the color spectrum. This entire day will be fun, flirty, and very romantic!
Bold navy and pink blooms. This navy blue wedding theme is fearless when it comes to style—it’s dramatic, elegant and a little vintage. Navy sets an elegant scene as linens for tablescapes, the groom’s suit and as accents to blackberry cocktails.
Pull together all your favorite decor elements and add navy blue for a wedding day that’s unlike any other.
This invitation is beautifully dramatic. How lovely this design will also look as wedding day stationery—programs, menus and table numbers.
Make the groom stand out from the rest and dress him in navy and blush. Match the flowers in his boutonniere to the color of his tie. We like this soft, pink color to complement the blushing bride.
Dress in Rust
Whether it’s for the bride, bridesmaids or someone else in the wedding party, we love this rust-colored gown. Think beyond the decor and flowers to bring in your wedding theme—everyone’s dress can really make your wedding look stunning.
Shoes in Blush
There are so many reasons to fall in love with Christian Louboutin shoes and these blush-colored pumps are no exception. Your bridal look deserves extra fashion, so wear those stylish shoes you’ve been dreaming about.
Change things up a bit and use teapots as centerpieces. Fill them with flowers and paint them in metallic gold for a fresh, trendy look.
This “Love Potion” cocktail looks so stylish for a navy blue wedding theme. Mix together blackberry syrup and Champagne, then garnish with juicy blackberries and fragrant thyme.
Create a dessert bar filled with style with navy blue macaron cookies. Macarons are fun and easy finger-desserts that can be made in so many different colors and flavors to match your wedding theme.
Set the table with navy-colored tablecloths and napkins, and gold plate chargers and flatware. For a complete reception look, add gold chiavari chairs and fill table space with hydrangeas and pink garden roses in glass vases.
Navy blue never looked so elegant when accented with pink flowers, dresses and cocktails. When you dress your ceremony and reception with blush-colored decor and flowers and bring navy to your desserts and drinks, you’ll end up with a day in just your style.
Calling all colorful details—periwinkle fabrics, orchid pumps, coral roses and metallic gold accents! Go bright and radiant with a periwinkle and coral wedding theme for an eye-catching look. We’re not sure anything can prepare you for spring as much as some pretty pink and blue wedding colors.
A wedding theme doesn’t have to follow any rules—pull in all your favorite elements for something totally unique. We love the eclectic additions like the vintage chair, the gold-painted bottles and the simple table decor.

We love this metallic foiled wedding invitation’s use of mixed fonts and variety of colors. It’s the perfect fit for a wedding that has a lot of style. The foil-stamped design elements add a great shine to the invite and would also be a gorgeous design for table numbers.
Chair Set up areas with furniture where guests can relax and mingle. A vintage chair adds so much style and encourages guests to linger and enjoy the scenery.
Ring Coral ruffles and textured fabrics make a gorgeous “bed” for photos of the wedding rings. Incorporate your colorful wedding theme whenever you can by placing periwinkle, coral, orchid and gold fabrics and details in your photos.
Gold Bottle Vases We love the shape of wine and beer/coke bottles for vases. They’re elegant and different than your rustic mason jars. Spray paint them in metallic gold—you’ll love how they reflect the candlelight, giving your tables a romantic glow. This is a super easy DIY project for your wedding! Not only is it ultra affordable, it looks very chic. We consider all metallic colors to be a neutral, so don’t be afraid to mix and match these items with your pink and blue wedding theme.
Tablescape Keep it simple. When decorating tables, you don’t have to add a lot of knick-knacks or over-do the flowers. It can be as simple as setting out nice flatware, glasses, beautifully designed menus and gold-painted vases.
Bouquet Loosely arrange coral roses, daisies and periwinkle flowers for an organic, outdoor wedding. Lightweight bouquets are just as beautiful as large arrangements and easier to hold all day long.
Boutonniere Add hypericum berries to boutonnieres for a hint of coral. Berries hold up to a long day from pre-ceremony to the wedding farewell.
Bridesmaids Periwinkle chiffon dresses give a cool-colored backdrop to bright bouquets full of coral and pink roses. Choose a background color, like periwinkle blue, for linens, dresses and shirts that will complement bright bouquets. If you enjoy some modern flare, make sure to have mismatched blue bridesmaids dresses.
Shoes These satin pumps in orchid are the perfect shoes for a unique wedding look. Not only a beautiful accent to your wedding dress, they’re versatile for those who want to change into a different dress after the ceremony.
Periwinkle with accents of coral and orchid make a gorgeous, colorful wedding theme. Add gold accents with painted bottles and foil-stamped stationery to create a romantic day.
Last week, we introduced you to Rose Quartz, one of two PANTONE Colors of the Year for 2016. Today, we’re thrilled to celebrate this year’s second top color pick: Serenity—a calming whisper of blue you’re going to adore. Serenity visually captures a feeling of true tranquility. It lends a timeless elegance to all things wedding, from fabrics to flowers, and paper to place settings. This vision board will hopefully inspire you to throw your own blue wedding!
We love this wedding invitation in Serenity and its lilting strokes of pastel petals. We think it could be the perfect pairing to those of you seeking a blue wedding theme!
Instead of chasing away the blues, here are more ideas for incorporating Serenity into your big day:
Why does the bride get to have all the fun? Try groom’s shoes in a dusty duck-egg blue. This fun pop of color brightens the day and the wedding aisle. Blue shoes add just the right amount of color, without going overboard. You do not have to wear blue, from head to toe.
Flattering for anyone, these blue dresses will stand the test of time. Soft ruching complements the bodice while a georgette skirt offers a princess-like flair.
Bring any table to life with hints of soft powder blue accents. Vintage vases in a dusty blue are paired with silver candlesticks for a romantic look with old-world charm.
Ceramic blue dishes have a handcrafted appeal. Perfect for creating an elegant, relaxed table.
Want a focal piece for your reception? An elegant blue sofa is as relaxing to look at as it is to rest upon. This is a great way to dress up your venue.
Bring your bouquet to life with pops of baby blue paired with creams and blushes. There are so many pretty flowers in this hue.
Accent your cake with edible blue flowers to perfectly match your theme.
Create an eye-catching tablescape, compliments of your signature color. A dusty blue napkin adds contrast to simple, white plates. Soft blue wedding decorations can be very chic.
You won’t regret embracing this Color of the Year—soft, romantic and elegant.
