Elements of Style: Painterly Pastels

Your wedding day is a blank canvas—turn it into an artful celebration by adding details with romantic, painterly brushstrokes in shades of soft pastels.

Weding Idea: Paint Strokes

1. WEAR // this wedding dress
This silk ball gown by Kathryn Conover Couture features hand-painted florals along the skirt (all done by the bride!).

2. GIVE // these sugar-cookie favors
Send guests home with a box of these pretty (and delicious!) hand-painted treats.

3. CUT // this cake
Have your cake designer paint the bottom tier, then crown the confection with a trio of sculptural sugar flowers. (Cake design by Savvy Fare)

4. SEND // this wedding invitation
Set the tone for your artful celebration with this painterly invite (“Peach Strokes” by Emily Jeffords for Minted).

5. DIY // these escort cards
Direct guests to their seats with mini hand-painted canvases displayed on wood easels.

6. CARRY // this bridal bouquet
Ask your florist to select in-season blooms in warm, soft shades of apricot and peach.
