1. Wedding Dress
Blush would be the most popular choice of pastel shade wedding dresses. It has all the charm and elegance of a white dress, with an extra modern vintage feel.
The beauty of pastel shades is that they are soft and gentle, so they don't overpower the whole ensemble. These pastel blue shoes can be matched to a blue dress, or would look lovely with a paler coloured dress. The creative freedom is yours!
The bridesmaids dresses are a great way of using different pastel shades to suit your theme. These Grecian style gowns are stunning in the different shades of lavender.
This is where your grooms party can have some fun with colour. They have matched their pale yellow cravats but have opted for multi-coloured socks. A very popular choice amongst groomsmen for a bit of a laugh.
5. Wedding Cake
The beauty of pastel shades is the simplicity. You can be as adventurous as you like with size/shape etc. or you can keep it simple. Either way it will certainly look elegant and pretty.
6. Wedding Favours
This is where the DIY approach works wonders! There are so many pastel-esque ideas on Pinterest that you can make yourself and give to your guests that will hardly cost you a penny. This is your chance to be creative and make something your guests will love!
7. Table Runners
If you want a minimalistic approach to your table decorations, or maybe you can't afford expensive, lavish centre pieces, then this idea will be perfect for you. A pastel table runner will light up the room and make your tables look stunning.
8. Chair Decorations
Chair covers are a lovely touch for your wedding ceremony. Just a simple ribbon and some pastel shade flowers will wow your guests and make your venue look stunning.
A bouquet to match your theme. You can either opt for one colour with different shades, or similar to the one below, choose various pastel shades. As they are soft in tone, they all go together beautifully.
The first thing your guests will see is your invite and this will give them a glimpse of your theme. These lovely coloured cards have been finished off with a touch of lace. Simple yet very effective!
11. Candle Holders
Candles are a perfect touch on your big day. You can add them to your tables as decoration, or if your reception is outside, you can use them to light up little areas for your guests. These vintage teacup candles are beautiful and a really quirky touch in perfect pastel pink.
12. Wedding Cards Box
Your guests will not want to carry their cards and gifts they have bought you all night. It is a good idea to have somewhere they can put them when they arrive, and that way they know they are safe. This suitcase is a great idea for a rustic feel and you can do it yourself at home.
13. Name Tags/Cards
This is a simple way for your guests to find their seats for the reception. They can be cards or tags, the choice is yours. A nice idea is a tag to tie around your napkins. These little wooden ones will be a lovely keepsake for your guests to remember your special day.
14. Floral Decorations
Pastel shade flowers are a stunning idea for decoration. They can be placed on the tables as centre pieces, petals to line your isle or decoration for the back of your chairs during the ceremony.
15. Seating Plan
Seating plans are a fun way to get creative and help your guests find their seats. Here is a large photo frame with pastel print outs and the guests names written inside. A cost-effective idea that looks lovely and fits perfectly with the theme.
Bridal hairpieces are absolutely beautiful. This peach hair band will give a stunning touch to your hair. Whether you choose an up-do or have it flowing down, it will be the perfect final touch.

Wedding signs can be anything you want them to be. From directions to showcasing your timeline, they are creative and fun and will give a personal touch to your venue.
A great way to decorate. Whether you are inside or out, these pastel shade garlands will look amazing. You can even make them yourself with your favourite flowers, or cut out triangular shaped paper and have bunting.
