Is green a good colour for a wedding? Of course it is! Think fresh and cool and unexpectedly flattering, spring and new beginnings. Think also of your wedding photographs -…

Sweet and charming pinks, fresh, restrained greens, and demure and unassuming greys - today’s cross-season palette is all about mature love and romance. Anchored in grey, baby pinks and mint greens can roam free providing a spring sheen and creating a light and very chic wedding palette.
For your tables, try silver-grey table runners lined with clear vases of pink and green wildflowers of all different legths and depth. Mismatched crockery will suit this elegance-meets-rustic table too, but make sure to keep certain items uniform to tie the look in together.
Blush wedding dresses are really popular on the catwalks this year, and this palette will complement the shade perfectly. And with spring being the season of pretty pastels, you are sure to pick up some gorgeous accessories, such as shoe clips or headpieces, online or on the high street.

Keep your accented colours on the paler side for this palette, you can make the greys darker where necessary but don’t be tempted to go for brighter pinks as you may risk throwing the whole look off!
