Classic wedding color ideas for classic brides



You have many hard decisions to make when planning your wedding ceremony and reception. Wedding colour themes can be difficult to choose. If you are a bride with classic taste, you probably like things which are timeless, elegant, and clean in design. Many classic brides also love bright colours, which can make the traditional all white colour palette seem a bit dull. These are some wedding colour palettes which have a classic sensibility and yet are bursting with beautiful colours. ( To be continued in part II tomorrow )

Blush/Pink : One colour, though, that you can count on to stick around is pink. In fact, you could almost declare pink to be the new white. It basically means that it is a colour that you will see in all aspects of many, many weddings. It also means that replacing things that are typically white at weddings with pink will make them a bit different, but at the same time, safe. It is a nice way to add some colour to your wedding without feeling like you are straying too far from the traditional or classic wedding style.

Because pink is such a soft and feminine colour, it is easy to use either as a subtle accent to a mostly white wedding, or as a focal point. If you want just a hint of pink, then a great place to add it is to your custom bridal jewelry. Instead of the traditional look of all white pearl bridal jewelry, custom combine pink pearls or crystals with the white for a very sweet look.

Pink is, of course, very easy to add to the centerpieces, bouquets, and other floral displays. This is another case where a dash of colour could easily be worked into a more monochromatic white wedding. For spring brides, there are particularly wonderful options, such as dainty pink lily-of-the-valley, pink tulips in all shades, and gorgeous peonies. Of course, roses are also available in all shades of pink at any time of the year.

On the other hand, if you can’t get enough of pink, then you can go all out with your wedding attire. A pale ballerina pink is a completely acceptable alternative to a white wedding dress, even for the most formal or traditional weddings. For bridesmaid dresses, there are numerous pink options, but one of the most gorgeous is to use pink lace over an ivory background, or the reverse.

Another place that pink is the new white is wedding cakes. Again, you can go for a bold pink effect, or keep it more delicate. For a true pink cake, you will want pink frosting, of course, and you can top it off with pink flowers (fresh or sugar) in a deeper pink for contrast. For simple and glam rustic, you can stick with naked wedding cake and top it off with pink flowers. If your main color is white, add a touch of pink to your cake with a pink polka dot or lace design for a delicate and feminine effect.

For a very pretty effect, you can also use your pink flowers as accents on the plates and even frozen into ice cubes for the drinks. Bringing your chosen color into unexpected parts of the wedding is a nice way to put your personal stamp on the reception. When you decide to use pink instead of white, you will find that there are lots of ways to customize your wedding.
