Just Peachy Wedding Inspo

When things are peachy, they’re wonderful. And we want things to be absolutely wonderful for your wedding. So right now we are presenting a color palette of peachiness for your viewing pleasure. Something about soft peach tones is so comforting and joyful. And feminine. And sophisticated, too, somehow. Join us for some Just Peachy Wedding Inspo as we dive into this dreamy hue!

This soothing color story works well for outdoor ceremonies (the best setting for your ceremony with the way things are in the world today.) Peach pairs perfectly with all the lovely greens and browns found in nature.

To complement your luminous peach color scheme we suggest billowy Peach Pampas grass or an arresting arrangement of palm fronds, hydrangea, and baby’s breath:

For your beautiful face, we love makeup palettes that offer a dose of sweet peachy goodness. Like this Baby Got Peach palette, by Colourpop. At just $12 this pastel peach monochromatic set is better than basic. With 9 shades and 3 different finishes, you can create a soft peachy look perfect for your special day:

And Two-Face’s Sweet Peach Glow Palette is an illuminating, blushing, and bronzing palette. This one provides the natural radiance of a gorgeous glowing peach sunset and makes your skin appear bathed in the most beautiful peachy golden light. Exactly how you want to look on your wedding day:

For your wedding cake, we propose something delicate, like this luscious one layer ombre confection:

For your decor, consider an extravagant display of paper lanterns and streamers. Paper Lantern Store offers a nice array of affordable options.

A collection of varying height vases would be amazing for your tables. And, you could incorporate them into your new home after the wedding:

EQ3 has a stunning selection of versatile ceramic vessels. How neat does that pop of yellow look paired with the peachy tones of the other vases? #idea

Rattan furnishings are a major trend and they would pair well with a peach theme. Incorporate a few pieces around your ceremony site. Our pick, this boho beauty from IKEA:

A signature peach cocktail seems reasonable, doesn’t it? We adore the White Peach + Rose Lemonade Refreshing Signature Drink we spied on mountainsidebride.com (but we might add the teensiest splash of vodka or champagne):

  • 3 cups white peaches, chopped into pieces
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 1 cup fresh-squeezed lemon juice (from about 7 lemons)
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 4 tablespoons rose water

Directions for 4: Place chopped peaches, water, and sugar in a heavy-bottomed saucepan over medium heat. Allow to cook down, about 20 minutes. Set aside to cool slightly, then run through a blender until pureed. Pour peach mixture through a fine sieve and place in refrigerator until chilled.  Meanwhile, squeeze the juice from lemons. Once the peach mixture has chilled in a pitcher combine with lemon juice and rose water. Serve chilled.

To set the tone for your guests, send them invites which hint at your theme, like these Pampas Grass lovelies from Coral Balloon:

And for some final inspiration, we leave you with a pretty (and peachy) poem by James Whitcomb Riley :

The Ripest Peach 

The ripest peach is highest on the tree —
And so her love, beyond the reach of me,
Is dearest in my sight. Sweet breezes, bow
Her heart down to me where I worship now!

She looms aloft where every eye may see
The ripest peach is highest on the tree.
Such fruitage as her love I know, alas!
I may not reach here from the orchard grass.

I drink the sunshine showered past her lips
As roses drain the dewdrop as it drips.
The ripest peach is highest on the tree,
And so mine eyes gaze upward eagerly.

Why — why do I not turn away in wrath
And pluck some heart here hanging in my path? —
Love’s lower boughs bend with them — but, ah me!
The ripest peach is highest on the tree!
