You can get truly creative with your wedding cake! Often couples overlook the impact a cake or dessert table can have on their wedding reception and it can easily be a show-stopping part of your celebration. A three-tier masterpiece in various pastel colours will look utterly mouth-watering. You could also serve your guests cake pops, cupcakes and macarons in different colours for a wow-factor wedding dessert table. This macaron tower is definitely making our hearts flutter and it’s a fabulous alternative to a traditional wedding cake. So much yumminess!

Your team of ‘maids will adore you for choosing a pastel palette. The colour scheme offers plenty of choice when it comes to picking out bridesmaid gowns, so why not ask each of your best girls which colour they’d prefer to wear? The mix and match trend isn’t going anywhere and it works perfectly for this wedding theme. If your girls are fans of a couple of particular shades of pastel, why not pick two and simply alternate them? Don’t forget, Glitzy Secrets have a huge choice of swoon-worthy accessories for your bridesmaids – the perfect thank you gift!
When it comes to your wedding flowers, make sure your florist is aware of your rainbow pastel colour palette. They will be able to advise on the best blooms for your big day and can help you decide how to use floral styling throughout your wedding day. From centrepieces to archways, floral design really is a lovely way to decorate your venue. We always recommend that you keep the same flowers (or at least the same style) for your bouquet, buttonholes and venue décor.

Your stationery should certainly be a subtle nod towards your gorgeous pastel wedding day! You could use a collection of colourful ribbons to add that all important finishing touch to your stationery, or you could create colourful signage to add a burst of rainbow bright hues throughout your day.
You can also add pops of colour with your wedding drinks too. A cocktail station is a must-have for any spring or summer soirée! Not only will it keep your guests feeling cool and refreshed, it’s a good excuse to have some fun with your wedding styling and choice of drinks. Glass drink dispensers filled with rainbow-inspired cocktails will definitely get your guests talking. You can serve them out of jam jars with an assortment of pastel straws.
