Bold, ‘Rainbow Brite' weddings, like this one, aren't for everyone so why not go a few shades lighter and incorporate delicate ice cream shades into your big day?

I love the thought of a rainbow of pretty pastels for a wedding colour palette!

Mix and match 3-4 of your favourite pastel shades (such as lilac, mint, baby pink and pale blue), team with classic, pure white elements and you're good to go.

Bridesmaids look especially pretty in an array of sorbet shades, pastel florals are always a winner in my book and ribbon ceremony/photo backdrops in soft shades make for truly delightful decor!

While pastel coloured lace is a dream come true. Elie Saab sent some truly wedding worthy gowns down the runway as part of his Spring/Summer 2012 haute couture collection.
