Blush pink and creamy peach – the sound of these two hues just makes me want to lick my lips.
For me, the Classic Elegance look has always been a Bridal style I’ve admired and maybe even longed for during my own planning. But I’m not too sure the boy and I could have pulled off the coiffed perfection and black tie look, even though a part of me aches to go back and try this style on for size.
Alas… I’m now only able to dream through these mood boards and palettes… So dream along with me, or be inspired for your own elegant day.
Come on peach!

I guess the word Classic does evoke a sense of tradition, but Classic certainly doesn’t mean boring! Shake things up in a coloured gown, this sugary-pretty-in-pink number is to die for. Love this…? Then look to Vera Wang, there’s some incredible inspiration in the Fall 2014 collection.
For accessories keep pieces classic with pearls, diamonds or maybe even a precious family heirloom handed down from Bride to Bride. I’m also a little smitten with these lacey peep-toes with bow detailing. So girly, so pretty and so classic.
A simple posy of roses is perfection, think clean fresh and utterly romantic. I just want to squish my face into the above bouquet… But I won’t. (Told you I wouldn’t make a good Classic Bride!)
For boys, instead of the tails or black tie options, choose a dark blue hued suit highlighted with a crisp white shirt, blush tie, pocket square and rose bout. Your Groom will be quite the handsome chap.
Serve blushing bubbles in classic flutes, invite guests to dine at white tablescapes with peachy centrepieces, use calligraphy script for menus and signs, cut your blush tiered iced cake and wave goodbye to friends and family in your classic getaway car with matching posy of florals.
So what do you think of this palette…?
Is your inner Princess squealing at the prettiness…?
Or do you think you your Groom will be calling for a slightly less girly theme…? With this in mind, how involved is your Groom in the decor and colour scheme…?
Until next time,
Lots of love…
