First, blush is in the eye of the beholder. (So are "light pink" and "peach" for that matter.) In this selection of invitations "blush" ranges from a pale shade of coral to soft baby pink.

No matter where it actually falls in the pink-peach category, blush is still a warm color. Including it in your wedding decor will set a very inviting scene.
When it comes to the botanicals for a blush wedding I'm sure roses could easily steal the show, but first consider these.
I admit, you have to tread lightly when dressing in pastel shades from the pink family. The wrong cut can take a dress into lingerie territory and too many ruffles will take a gal from bride to cake-topper faster than you can say pale peach posies please.
And these are new.

As a bride, you hold a lot of power so please, please be kind to your bridesmaids. They do not want to look like they borrowed a dress from their school-aged sister nor do they want to look like a cupcake. Unless it is a theme wedding centered around confections.
I give you permission to dress your flower girl in the most fairy cupcake princess attire, but I included a posh alternative above just in case.
Still envision yourself walking down the aisle in white? Kick the color up a notch with your headpiece or your shoes.(Side note, brides in technicolor kicks are showing up in all sorts of photographer portfolios and blogs.)
Finally, let them eat cake! Nobody in your wedding party wants to look like a confection, but that doesn't mean nobody wants to eat them. Blush is a fabulous shade for food! Cotton candy, anyone?
Well, I'm sold on this new iteration of the blushing bride. Are you?
