Sun bleached cerise and faded fuchsia makes blush pink the perfect colour for a summer wedding. Elegant and chic, blush has a simple sophistication that doesn’t overwhelm, only enhanced by the summer sunshine.

Here are some of our favourite ideas to compliment your blush colour palette.


A beautiful blush dress is such a pretty alternative to a white dress. If you’re having any part of your wedding outside, white tends to be a bit dazzling under the sun!

You’ve got two options – mix with whites for a delicate, light and pretty bouquet; or mix with dark, contrasting colours for some drama! Roses and peonies work well for a fluffy bunch and add some greenery to make the blush stand out.

Table decoration

Whether you choose to compliment your blush tones with greenery, white, metallics, or leave it as pure blush, the result will not fail to bring a sweet tranquillity to your tablescape. Rose gold and copper work well with blush or go for a distressed vintage metallic. Blush works really well for a vintage feel!
