Reader Request: Blush + Blue

July 8, 2014
So today I have a really fun reader request to share with you guys. Blush and blue? Can it work? That was the question that I received recently from a bride who was having quite the color conundrum. And my answer? Of course! You can definitely mix these shades. Here's how!

In this case, the bride told me that she wanted to keep her colors light and airy, nothing too bold. She wanted to incorporate a bit of pink and some soft blues, but she was afraid it might look like a baby shower gone wrong. So off to the drawing board, and here you have it! Proof that you can totally opt for a palette like this one. And it totally can work!

I love the idea of keeping things pretty neutral overall, but then adding a bit of soft color here and there. And these pretty pink bow heels are a lovely example of this. I'm imagining bridesmaids in soft pink and groomsmen in either soft gray or maybe a very light blue suit. Simple flowers in white would look pretty and when it comes to styling, romantic delicate details would work best for these shades. So what do you think? Are you a believer that blush and blue can work?

I think the gray really helps to keep it from looking like a baby shower!

i think if you choose hot pink that it would be more romantic and eye catching. by the way, this is also beautiful color palette combination.

Beautiful! So often people use these colours for a wedding and it still
shouts baby shower. It's really great to see how you made it work for a
romantic feel.
