Cool clear details (think: Lucite and vellum) balance out these super-sweet colors.
On a Clear Day
The palest hues can be surprisingly, cheerfully modern when viewed through the right lens. To amp up the cool factor of blush, yellow, and blue, we paired this palette of pastels with modern translucent accents, like Lucite, acrylic, and vellum. The final result is wedding décor that's just a lighter shade of chic. Plus, combining these light shades and more contemporary clear details would be perfect to your pre-wedding parties, too. Consider it for your bridal shower and bachelorette party for a feminine look that's still totally of the moment.

To the Letter
Cool acrylic adds extra dimension to stationery and day-of paper goods. Invitations are sandwiched between two sheets of plexiglass, making them feel like mini works of art; leather envelope pouches (which also hold letterpressed RSVP cards and envelopes) give the whole package a luxurious feeling. We also laser-etched guests' names into acrylic rectangles and set them over pale-blue cards for an elegantly modern place card-menu combination.
