tropical pastels

tropical pastel wedding ideas

Pastels are usually associated with vintage style weddings (think: teacups and antique books) but I love the mix of tropical and pastel in this inspiration board. It’s a refreshing new twist on both a pastel wedding and a tropical wedding. Typically with tropical weddings you either have neutrals or brights – but toning it down and using mother of pearl iridescent colors as your palette inspiration would be absolutely beautiful!

  1. I love your tropical boards so much!!! How cool is that ship chandelier? I want it!

  2. This palette is so dreamy. love the beachy details!

  3. Love that it’s a beach themed board without anchors and stripes! So refreshing! That Aloha fan reminds me of my childhood…used to hot glue flowers and ribbon on them. This is a much prettier use for them 🙂

  4. Ooh, love! It’s so nice to see a softer tropical look rather than the vibrant colors (although I love those, too).

  5. I second Lauren’s comment- that chandelier is so neat! This board makes me excited for vacation!!

  6. This board and colors is like a cool tropical breeze blowing over the island. Such beauty and serenity ….love it!

  7. I like this combination of tropical and pastel for a wedding! It’s dainty and I’m into nature-inspired weddings.

  8. Beautiful! The toned down tropical colors make it so dreamlike. Absolutely gorgeous!

  9. So p e r f e c t !

  10. Thank you for sharing one of my images on your wonderful blog. What a lovely inspiration board for tropical weddings!
