Top 10 Pastel Wedding Color Palette Decor Ideas for Spring 2022
Pastel colors are dreamy. They can make you feel like you’re floating on a cloud, lost in a fantasy world. They evoke the promise of life in the spring, and their lighthearted, whimsical spirit is sure to bring a smile to your face.
No wonder pastel colors are so popular at weddings!
If you’re planning a spring wedding in 2022, we’ve got some great pastel wedding palettes for you to consider, whether you like traditional combinations, you are looking for edgy colors, or you’re all about dreamy details.
Rose and Baby Blue
Gossamer Pink and Spun Sugar are two colors picked by Pantone for 2022, and they make a great pastel wedding palette! They also have some staying power. They have been popular at weddings for the last few years, and their popularity will likely continue in the future, so you don’t have to worry about this color combo looking dated anytime soon.
Pink spray roses are dainty and elegant, especially when arranged together in large bunches, while gauzy blue cheesecloth can dress up old wooden tables.
Dusty Blue, Sage, and Silver
Dusty blue is a popular wedding color, especially with brides and grooms who like more muted tones. It’s lovely when combined with sage and metallic silver.
Pastel wedding flower arrangements can include actual sage, which can make your wedding day smell great as well as look great. Get creative with chiffon and tie it to the backs of ceremony chairs, and add some shine to reception place settings with vintage silver charger plates.Reception Space Decorated With Pink and Blue Streamers: Ruffled Blog, Peach and Blue Flower Arrangements Tied to Ceremony Chairs: Caron and Co.

Peach and Slate Blue
We’re not done with blue yet! If you are looking for pastel wedding ideas that are a little off the beaten path, consider peach and slate blue.
This color combo is lovely for a beach wedding, but you don’t have to be able to dig your toes into the sand to choose this color combination. Peach and blue floral arrangements look right at home at a garden wedding, while streamers and ribbon can be a fun way to decorate a whimsical reception space.
Butter Yellow and Salmon
If you want to go even lighter and brighter, choose a pastel wedding motif featuring shades of butter yellow and salmony-pink that is planted firmly in the warm side of the color wheel.
Salmon-colored sheer organza can be wound around columns or tied in bows to the backs of chairs, buttercups can be incorporated into bouquets, and handmade vellum lanterns can give your reception space a soft, yellow glow.
Lilac and Pear
If you’re looking for a pastel wedding color palette that your guests likely haven’t seen before, try the combination of lilac and pear.
You can incorporate these colors throughout your wedding day, but we especially love taking them literally. Cover floral wreath chandeliers in hanging lilacs, incorporate whole pears into your centerpieces, and cover your cake in sliced pears and dainty lilac blossoms.
Violet, Soft Pink, and Light Lime
A favorite spring 2022 color palette of ours is the funky-fresh combination of violet, soft pink, and light lime.
The trick is to use the lightest shades of each to give your pastel wedding décor a soft, instead of harsh, appearance. For example, if you want to decorate with bows made out of sheer lime organza, tone it down with a top layer of white or ivory. Bring in pops of pink with cupcake wrappers on the dessert table, and do something a little different by incorporating purple velvet napkins at each place setting.
Sea Glass and Shades of Almond
Sea glass and shades of almond pastel hues in your wedding color palette can transport you to the beach or the lakefront, even if you’re miles away from a large body of water.
Place frosted sea glass in apothecary jars mixed with sea shells and starfish. We especially love large chunks of sea glass used as place cards and table numbers, as well as tablescapes that are covered in light, seafoamy green from top to bottom.

Creamsicle, Pale Yellow, and Muted Terracotta
A bright combination of creamsicle, pale yellow, and muted terracotta is great for cheerful couples who also love the boho look because terracotta is having a huge moment in modern weddings.
Pastel wedding reception ideas include using lightly colored terracotta vases and candle holders as-is, or they can be whitewashed to mute their color. Incorporate citrus, like lemons and orange slices, and consider decorating with paper lanterns for a whimsical look.
White has always been a classic bridal color, but boho brides have taken this concept to a whole other level. If your idea of the perfect pastel wedding color palette includes neutrals, then look no further than the cream dream combination.
It can feature any variety of muted tones you want, as long as they are in the cream, off-white family. This palette lends itself well to decorating with pampas grass and other dried flowers, as well as rattan lanterns.
Can’t settle for two or three pastel colors? Choose them all with the pastel rainbow color palette!
Because you can choose any pastel colors you want, the sky is the limit when it comes to decorations. Colorful balloons and rainbow flower arches would be a beautiful addition to your ceremony space as a pastel wedding backdrop, while iridescent details, like napkins and charger plates, can give your wedding a magical vibe.
