One of the featured trends for Spring ’11 fashion collections has been ice cream colours (like these pieces from Michael Kors, Christopher Kane, Luella and Marios Schwab). These lovely pastel shades make the perfect palette for Spring weddings and can be painted into every aspect, from the dresses and reception decorations to flowers. Have a look at these sweet images!
The newest collection from Oscar de la Renta features these soft gauzy, delicate shades for a romantic effect.
This recent bride chose a light, dusky lavender as an alternative to the usual white dress.
The bridesmaids dresses can take on a stronger shade of the ice cream palette, giving a very fresh, eye-catching look to the wedding party.
Don’t forget the groom’s all-important tie!
Use peaches, pinks, light blues, light greens, pastel yellows and lavenders in you flowers. Often hydrangeas, avalanche roses, and hyacinth are good options in this color scheme.
When it comes to the reception scheme, create a creamy effect with a white background and the bright, fresh ice cream colors as highlights (like flowers, napkins, and stationary).
Candy stripes also create that ice cream parlor vibe.
