Blush is a popular wedding color this year, and in my opinion one of the most romantic and/or whimsical colors you can choose for your wedding. I am inundated every day with blush wedding ideas; and because even I love the color, I thought it would be fun to show a few of them off. Blush can be a part of almost any combination of wedding colors, and can add a subtle softness and romance.
The Latest Blush Wedding Ideas
My favorite is the driftwood centerpiece. I also love the pastel shades in the wedding cake. Found this little shot of inspiration on The Sweet Occasion.

This came from Ruffled. A finger corsage? This is surely something new. What do you think? I still haven’t made up my mind…seems itchy.
I had to throw in a pretty blush wedding dress. Found this on Wedding Dress Bee. It’s on sale right now, check it out!
LOVE THIS! So cute. What a great wedding idea. From A Practical Wedding. Dye flour with food coloring and make a trail to the wedding path. Flour won’t harm anything and can be any color you want!

The sun is finally shining in Portland and I have been really inspired by the new wedding color palettes for the 2013 wedding season. Everything seems fresh, new, and crisp! If you are still choosing your wedding colors, be sure to check out the Art Of Weddings Guide to Choosing Wedding Colors – Part One. Choosing the wedding colors can really be one of the hardest parts of the wedding planning process, and I always encourage brides not to rush into the decision and to really see everything that is out there. And that is where I come in…here are some of the latest color inspirations I have found…
Fresh Wedding Colors for 2013
Adding gold into a mint wedding palette makes mint seem almost royal. This is a fabulous color palette. It is cool, but with depth and vibrancy. Found this on Wedding Chicks.

Shades of yellow are really popular wedding colors this year! This is bright, fun, and sweet. The link said this was from Wedding Part Gallery, but the link did not work.
This is my favorite combination of the day! These sweet pastels are fresh, crisp, but with a true romance feeling. This offers a perfect wedding color palette to do so many fun things. Found on The Sweet Occasion. Photo credits, from top: Kellie Kano via Elizabeth Anne Designs / Jose Villa via 100 Layer Cake / Elizabeth Messina via The Bride’s Cafe.
This is somewhat like the one above, with a little more contrast and brightness to it. Adding in the lime and clementine flair offers a little more personality. This is fresh like a summer smoothie!

At least once a week I pop over to Etsy to see what is trending in the wedding world. Whether it is fashion, wedding decor, or some other amazement, I always report back my findings to brides and potential brides of the world. Today, I’ve found some unique Etsy wedding decor. I tried to find things we aren’t seeing in the mainstream wedding barrage…truly unique wedding decor. You be the judge!

Love these. Wedding decor clothespins. Can be used for so many different things. A set of 12 for only $6.50 from Gonna Get Hitched.
These fit right in with popular wedding color schemes for 2013. They are a fresh take on all the wedding mason jar stuff! They are painted a pretty gold on the inside. The three mason jars shown are just $21.00 from BeachBlues.
I haven’t seen a lot of butterfly wedding decor out there lately, but these are lovely! I would use these in my house after the wedding! A set of 30 butterflies for $45.00 from BugsLoft.

I have mixed feelings on the idea of a juice bar at a wedding reception or bridal shower. Maybe it comes from one experience where I was working as an actress in a movie and had to consume almost an entire bottle of grape juice in a matter of an hour. It was the biggest sugar high I have ever had, which was followed with a HUGE sugar crash and some damage to my digestion system. So maybe, I am jaded. Truly, I love the idea of a fresh juice bar. In fact, I have a fresh smoothie every morning and think making new combos is great fun. I also love the look of all the clean, and fancy juice bars I have seen for weddings on Pinterest. But somehow, I keep going back to the idea that the entire party will be on a massive sugar high for an hour, and then you better get them leave…because the crash will be a party killer.
What do you think? Too much sugar? Here are some photos and other juice bar ideas to help you decide for yourself.
Bridal Shower or Reception Juice Bar Ideas
See! This looks so fun, and the colors are beautiful! I love the added touch with the mason jar lids on this one. From Cobblestone Rue.
The colors are still fabulous! I love orange for weddings. See my recent DIY Dried Fruit Wedding Garland post for proof. Another great example of a juice bar done right! Lots of details make this the perfect juice bar, if a juice bar is a good idea…the jury is still out. This inspiration from Vermont Vows.
Ummm…now we are talking! This is a wedding idea I can jump behind! An upgraded version of the juice bar idea. Still great colors, but somehow adding booze makes it not seem so sugary! I am aware I may be the only one who thinks that. Lol! Now that we’ve seen some juice bars done right…here is one done wrong. Could not find the source for this one.
This seems like an advertisement for Simply Orange and all its’ brothers and sisters. Neutral vases or pitchers are the way to go. This is a definite wedding don’t in my book.
Okay, with all this evidence…you be the judge and jury! Is a juice bar for a bridal shower or reception a wedding do or don’t? Taking responses on Facebook and in the comments. Go.
