We love the ethereal, desaturated shades of pink, known as pale pinks, also referred to all over social media as “millennial pink.” Whatever you choose to call it, this sweet set of colors has swept the fashion world. Each one so soft, so appealing, & so so perfect for a wedding palette! No longer relegated to little girls, this new rendition of pinks are current, hip and all the rage in the design world. The best of all? We love Pantone 489 U, We think it is the perfect combination of blush, pale pink and nude. Which one is YOUR favorite?
Traditions are great but they get a bit boring sometimes. Weddings are one of those things where you feel obliged to do things a certain way because that’s how they’ve always been done, but if you stopped to think about it, you’d probably realised you're not bothered about half of that stuff. Having a traditional wedding isn’t that personal to you either. Most of the choices that you make are dictated by tradition rather than what you actually want to do. But a lot of those traditions are going out of the window and people are opting for something a bit different instead.
