Need to give your venue a warm glow? Arrange various-sized tree stumps in a large open space and place glass candle vases on top. The flickering light and warm neutrals will create a romantic atmosphere that’s inviting, and not to mention, perfect for a rustic theme! Pick any size candles you desire! An array of tealight candles scattered about, will also make a luxurious statement.

Not big on frosting? Try a naked cake! Not only are these sweet treats adorable and perfect for a rustic wedding theme, they are often less expensive. Without a baker needing to spend hours creating the perfect masterpiece with delicate pieces of fondant, there is usually less labor involved with this style of cake.

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!

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!

Toast to the bride-to-be with a Champagne and raspberry red bridal shower theme. Serve cupcakes, Champagne cocktails and raspberry macarons to incorporate her favorite flavors. Berries and bubbly liven this party in colors of mulberry, raspberry, blush and cream.This fun pink and red bridal shower will really wow your guests!

Create a party that she’ll remember, filled with all her favorite things.

Featured Bridal Shower Invitation: Flowery Circlet. See our full Party & Shower Invitation Collection here.

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.

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.

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.

Champagne favors
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!

Navy Blue Wedding Theme Ideas

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.

Ideas for Pink and Blue Wedding Themes

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Add hypericum berries to boutonnieres for a hint of coral. Berries hold up to a long day from pre-ceremony to the wedding farewell.

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.

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.
