pastel pink and yellow

pastel pink and yellow wedding inspiration

Pastel pink and yellow make a lovely wedding color combination. The trick when working with two light colors like this is to vary the opacity of each to create an overall ombre effect. For instance: if the bridesmaid’s dress is light yellow than include even lighter yellow in your floral centerpiece, and the pink bouquet – make it a darker shade of pink than the blush wedding dress.

Speaking of that gorgeous dress…did you notice the fabric cutout sewn into it? The bride lost her grandfather before her wedding and since he had always said that he wanted to dance with her on her big day she found a touching way to commemorate him by sewing a part of his favorite tie into her dress. Isn’t that the sweetest?!
