I love the thought of a fiesta-inspired rainbow wedding: one that’s bursting with colour and happiness. This cheerful theme is guaranteed to make people smile and it’s the perfect way to splash your personality across your day. Take a look at our top tips for pulling off this fab theme…
Your wedding flowers are the easiest and possibly one of the most beautiful ways of channelling your rainbow wedding theme. Opt for blooms that are a variety of different colours and in the brightest shades. Discuss with your florist which flowers are in season – Summer will be the best time of year for colourful posies, but this theme is still fab for any season.
Your wedding stationery is perhaps the easiest way to give your guests a hint of what’s to come. Gorgeous, colourful invitations wrapped with bright ribbon will indicate that something colourful is going to happen. If you’re having a Summer soiree, why not use floral illustrations? But if you’re having a Winter or urban wedding, colourful geometric patterns will look equally fab.
When it comes to choosing a bridal outfit that fits in with this theme, let your wedding bouquet and accessories do the talking. A white gown will look stunning against the contrast of bright flowers, and all you need is a pop of colour in your bridal shoes and jewellery. A vibrant flower crown is the perfect match for this theme, especially if you consider yourself a bohemian bride-to-be.
There are so many ways to dress your bridesmaids with this theme. You could pick out your favourite colour and focus on that with the dresses, or mix and match your ladies in a variety of different colours. Your girls will love wearing a mixture of different colours, as they’ll be able to find a shade that they find most flattering to their skin tone and figure.
Paper fan and ribbon garlands are the new wedding bunting of 2016, and they are simply perfect for a rainbow wedding. Paper fans in different colours and sizes hanging around your venue make for fabulous photograph backdrops. Hang rainbow ribbon garlands behind your dessert table or even on the ‘Bride’ and ‘Groom’ chairs. They can be a simple DIY task for you and your partner, and can make even the blankest of spaces look spectacular.
One of the best things about a rainbow wedding theme is the fact that there are so many colours and cake designs to choose from. If you want a simple white wedding cake, why not decorate it with extravagant sugar flowers in bright colours, such as hot pink or yellow. A hand-painted cake will look magnificent with colourful illustrations. Your cake designer will be able to come up with a bespoke design that you feel is perfect for your big day.
This fabulous theme is just full of colour and I feel it can brighten up even the rainiest of days. Would you plan a colourful rainbow wedding…?wtw catch up
