There is no more romantic season for a wedding than spring. Enhance the romance of a spring wedding by selecting soft and delicate wedding colors for your flowers, bridesmaid dresses, and decorations. Get inspired by the gentle wedding color palette of apricot, peach, and blush.
Pink is a perennial favorite color for spring weddings, but sometimes it can be nice to choose something a bit less expected. A beautiful variation on pink is soft peach, apricot, and blush hues. They are just as pretty and feminine, but are a bit toned down, perhaps a touch vintage, and not quite so common as pink for a spring wedding. Peach, apricot, and blush all blend seamlessly together in a tonal color palette combined with accents in cream or ivory.
The most beautiful part of a wedding decorated in tones of peach, blush, and apricot will certainly be the flowers. Lush garden roses are romantic and old fashioned in these hues. Play up their nostalgic charm by loosely arranging them in footed garden urns or silver bowls with trailing greenery. Many other blossoms are available in variations of these colors, such as ranunculus, sweet peas, tulips, and calla lilies. Mix a variety of blossom sizes and shades of peach and apricot for the most romantic look. Ivory flowers like peonies and spray roses can be added to the centerpieces and bouquets if you wish to break up the color a bit. Accents of green leaves can be a nice contrast to the warm feminine hues, as well.
The bridesmaid dresses are another place where you will definitely want to feature your signature wedding colors. Any of the colors: blush, peach, or apricot would be lovely for their dresses. The apricot is ideal if you prefer a stronger color for your wedding party, the peach is very sweet and girly, while the blush is very ethereal. These colors will tend to look best in fabrics without a shine, so opt for matte chiffon, organza, taffeta, or faille. It would be lovely for the bride to bring her signature color into her ensemble with custom bridal jewelry. Pearls in blush or peach are very flattering to the skin, and would be a beautiful choice for custom bridal jewelry to wear with an ivory wedding gown.
With such a romantic wedding color palette, aim for equally pretty and romantic decorations. An arbor draped with sheer blush tulle and twined with lush apricot and peach roses would be a spectacular altar decoration for the wedding ceremony. Line the aisle with petals in a range of peach, apricot, and blush shades. Either the apricot or the blush color would be gorgeous as the main accent color for the reception. A shantung tablecloth in apricot would be very pretty for a spring afternoon celebration. Layer napkins in blush or ivory for a contrast. Another option would be to use creamy tablecloths and decorate slipcovered chairs with peach sashes for a pop of color. That is an easy way to bring your wedding colors into the reception space without having to rent a lot of custom linens.
There are many other ways that the soft color palette of peach, apricot, and blush can be used in a spring wedding. Naturally the peach and apricot lend themselves to being part of the menu. Consider a peach nectar signature cocktail or a layer of apricot jam in the wedding cake. The softness and beauty of apricot, peach, and blush would be simply lovely for any spring wedding.
