Rose, coral, strawberry, rouge—the color names for blush fairytale wedding inspiration are poetic in themselves! If you envision a soft, flirty, and ultra-romantic ceremony and celebration for your big day, this pretty palette is everything you need for gorgeous florals, lovely makeup, a knockout venue, and (of course!) a one-of-a-kind wedding gown. Keep scrolling!
Blushing Bride with Blush Bridal Makeup
The best thing about blush bridal makeup is its versatility. Light pinks and corals adapt to a barely-there natural look, or be layered and illuminated for full 80s-bombshell drama. And just like a blush gown or blush bloom, blush makeup looks incredible on a variety of skin tones. For a lighter complexion, opt for bright and rosy to evoke an ethereal, forest-nymph vibe. For freckles, dial the rosy toward mauve to match your warmth. For olive and medium skin tones, a fuchsia blush will add drama and contrast, while a darker complexion complements rich purple and warm red stains.
Wedding Whimsy with Blush Wedding Bouquets
Pink is a floral staple, of course, but given the spotlight, all-out blush wedding bouquets can make a truly exceptional statement for your big day. For a classic and formal look, opt for all-blush roses in a full-stemmed arrangement, and for a looser bohemian feel, consider a loose gathering of branches with subtle green and brown accents. Any way you arrange it, think pink!
Get Creative and Create a Blush Wedding Venue
What’s a blush wedding venue, you ask? Anything from a natural backdrop with blush flora and fauna to a Wes Anderson-inspired manor with candy-pink walls. To fully embrace the “blush fairytale” magic, we suggest balancing your natural and artificial pink tones, such as by combining neutral off-whites with saturated watercolors. This contrast helps create a relaxed yet otherworldly (in other words, fairytale-esque!) feel.
Tie the Knot with a Blush Wedding Color Scheme
It goes without saying that a blush wedding color scheme covers all your bases, from bouquets and makeup to the dress and venue. From there, consider surprising add-ons to give your menu, photos, and overall guest experience that extra dose of drama. Our latest blush crushes? Pink balloons, color-coordinated bridesmaid gifts, and shimmery catering displays.
Sweeten the Deal with a Blush Wedding Cake
A blush wedding cake would almost be too pretty to eat! Consider a unique style in pastel and 3D accents, statement ombre tiers in pink and white, or a minimalist design in soft blush and greenery. (On a budget? We suggest a petite blush wedding cake for the cutting ceremony, followed by sheet pans or cupcakes in a complementary color scheme for your guests.)
Celebrate with your Blush Bridesmaid dresses
There’s nothing like gorgeous blush bridesmaid dresses to get the stamp of approval from your tribe! We said it before and we’ll say it again—this hue is über complementary on a variety of skin tones, it brightens and flirt-ifies your overall wedding palette, and it looks oh-so-dreamy against your white, off-white, or soft blush wedding dress. This gown color is super versatile and looks great with lots of floral and venue options, but we especially love it paired with natural greenery, mismatched among the maids, or glitzed up with crystal accents.
And Best of all…Wear a Blush Wedding Dress
