How to Pull Off Blush and Bashful If You’re A Modern Day Steel Magnolia
If in true Steel Magnolias fashion you’ve declared your wedding colors to be blush and bashful (not “pink and pink,” of course), then you’re in luck. Blush is one of this year’s most sought after spring wedding shades. There are lots of lovely wedding décor ideas in various pink hues just waiting for your personalization. We’ve rounded up a few of our favorite blush and bashful wedding day details that definitely won’t make your ceremony look like “it’s been hosed down with Pepto Bismal,” as M’Lynn Eatenton would say.
1. Set the Stage with a Sweetly Pink Paper Suite
2. Seal it With a Dreamy Rose Detail
3. Plan the Perfectly Pink Bouquet
Pale pinks with a few pops of brighter hues make this peony, hydrangea, dahlia, sweet peas, and ranunculus arrangement soft yet stunning.
4. Tie It All Together with Rose-Colored Ribbon
Things That Only Happen At Southern Weddings
Most weddings have an excited couple, more than a few loved ones, a grand send-off, and an 'I do' kiss – but Southerners have added their own charm to wedding traditions. We've mastered the art of soul food, we usually have fantastic 75˚ (enviable, really) weather, and our wedding receptions are full of syrupy drawls. If you find yourself at nuptials below the Mason-Dixon, you'll find some extra-special moments: seersucker suits, a buried bottle of bourbon, and a wedding cake with charms baked into it. Although very central to our region, these special Southern wedding traditions are celebrated for very specific reasons. We choose seersucker because it'll hold off the strong Southern heat. We bury bourbon so that we won't have to handle so much of that strong Southern heat. And, we pull charms so that our futures will be as lucky and prosperous as the bride and groom's. What's your favorite Southern wedding tradition?
