Style Trend - Pastels

There’s no denying the sweet old-fashioned charm of pastel colours. They can be vintage, retro, country or modern. They’re a perennial fave of brides the world over and it’s easy to see why!

How To Do Pastel Perfectly:
• 50s style dresses work well with this theme as pictured below, with touches of lace to add texture.

• Floaty fabrics in pale tones create dreamy dresses in the wedding below - a more modern take on the theme.

Top Tip

• Don’t go too overboard with the pale and pretty, it can get a bit much very quickly. Mix it up with touches of timber, twine or contrasting colours as seen in the chair sashes below.
