A new color palette: Ballerina hues

So you are bored with chocolate, turquoise, and lavender and are looking for something a bit new and fresh but very pretty. The color palette of ballerina hues - pale pinks, cafe au lait, the softest khaki – are hues that will compliment the white or crème of your gown, but allow for the whole bridal party to appear to be floating on air, like a ballerina. Blush-toned flower arrangements with some green leaves as an accent will make guests feel like they are walking through a heavenly garden.
If you like the soft tones but want to spice it up a bit, have your bridesmaids accessorize with coral accents such as a necklace, chandelier earrings or a statement ring in a shade of the peachiest coral (but be careful it isn’t too red, more peach-toned). Makeup in peachy shades (like Lancome Colour Fever Gloss in Solaire and MAC crème blush in Blossoming) work great with this look. The contrast between the coral and the softest ballerina hues is surprising, modern and beautiful. Plus jewellery always makes a great gift for your bridesmaids!
