Blush Pink and Gold Wedding Ideas
Model Katrina wore a ball gown with Jimmy Choo’s tulle pumps from Nordstrom’s, while groom Rashid wore an off-white and black tux from The Black tux. Her soft, romantic hair and make up was styled by Greyss Zenteno with the elegance of a blushing bride in mind.
To achieve the lush, gardeny feel, Rachiel chose Great Marsh Estate as the backdrop for the shoot. “The venue displays a well manicured lawn on both North and South side of the Estate, perfect for just strolling around the property. It is romantic, and elegant, yet a little bit rustic.”
Romantic Pink and Gold Wedding in the Garden
Sugar Quill Calligraphy designed the blush and gold wedding stationery to reflect the arrival of spring: “The color palette and floral watercolor artwork were inspired by types of flowers used throughout the shoot. I decided to print the menus and the floral wrap that goes around the invitation on a delicate chiffon fabric to incorporate that light and airy feeling that comes with spring. We finished the invitation suite with a custom designed eucalyptus branch wax seal and gold calligraphy.”
The pops from Flour and Fig added a touch of whimsy to the theme by using them as a wedding favor and accent to the table setting.
Angyono Custom Cakes made a four-tiered blush pink and gold wedding cake. She added a beautiful blush peony sugar flower to match the peonies used for the centerpieces.
Stylist Posh Events focused on mixing modern pieces with a vintage touch. The plates used were modern, blush, and with a gold rim, while the white plate with scalloped edges added a touch of vintage style: “One of our favorite additions to the table were our wine glasses with a light pink rose color stem! The different shades of pink really all mixed well together with the gold taper candles, modern gold flatware, and antique gold chargers. The key was to not over power the table, keeping it very light and airy.”
The blush pink and gold wedding table featured a light pink chiffon runner. “We love mixing different styles of candles on the table to show how versatile they can be. Along with the gold taper candles, we used blush vintage candleholders and clear glass candle holders. Andrea and I have been collecting antique candle holders for years and we love incorporating them in our designs.”
Floral Designer L’Ambiance decided to created centerpieces using three different heights for visual interest, with a few smaller centerpieces to complete the look. They used blush garden roses, peonies, ranunculus, blush roses, hellebores and lots of different types of greeneries. The bridal bouquet was made using similar blooms, but kept simple and so as not to over power the dress.
The custom-made pink and gold wedding ring from LEL Jewelry came from the ‘Rose Vine’ collection. A beautiful 2ct pink sapphire was surrounded by 18 diamonds in the halo to add some sparkles. Rose vine wrapped around, and bloomed roses with pink sapphire flanked the halo.
- Look for old pieces through Craigslist and thrift stores – incorporating vintage pieces can add character to your event. You don’t have to have a cookie cutter wedding. What makes planning a wedding fun is adding a little bit of your character and style to your event. And you’ll be surprise what you can find in the thrift stores for the fraction of the cost of paying rental.
- If you’re looking for something different and can’t find it, make it yourself. I was looking for a table for the cake that is not too big but also not too small, and has a little bit of character to it. I know I want a lighter colored wood and has charm. When I saw the old sewing machine from craigslist, it wasn’t the right color but it was the right size and look I was going for. So when I saw it. I immediately thought “chalk paint!”. It takes a little time to do it, but it was worth it.
- Use florals that are in season and also be open minded if the one you want to incorporate is not available. I wanted to use cherry blossom at first but I knew that I maybe taking a risk because of how unpredictable the peak season is. I focused on florals that have the same charm and colors of cherry blossoms.
