Blush has been the on trend color in wedding design for several years. This soft pink can easily be paired with many colors. Last year I felt a shift towards peach instead of blush but now I’m thinking that was just a small detour. Is mauve the new blush?
Before you flashback to the 80s and 90s, know that today’s mauve is a dusty rose shade that pairs well with other neutrals and pastels. It’s a darker, deeper blush.
‘Quicksand’ roses are my go-to blush rose. I hadn’t paired them with mauve ‘Amnesia’ roses before but I was so happy with the combination!
This wedding party looked sharp! The ladies and men wore all black, except the bride and groom. The bride was in ivory and the groom was in a mauve suit that looked fantastic! I can’t wait to see some of the photographer’s photos. Right now, you will just have to imagine!
The Ceremony was at Neu Chapel on the University of Evansville’s campus. The bride’s goal was to cover the altar table with flowers. This arrangement measured in at nine feet long and was filled with hydrangea, roses, and greenery. Large vases on pedestals flanked the altar table. These items were later repurposed for the photo backdrop at the reception at Evansville Country Club.
What do you think about this combination? What are your favorites from this wedding? What are your feelings about mauve? Do you think it is the new blush?
