Wedding styles come and go, but if there’s one design element that’s always on trend, it’s the use of bright colors. Incorporating bright colors into your wedding help set the festive tone and makes a great backdrop for photos you’ll want to display forever.
Of course, when it comes to adding bright colors to your wedding, the possibilities are truly endless. But if you’re looking for ideas, look no further—you’ve come to the right place.
Here are six ways to add bright colors into your wedding décor:
1. Brighten up your bouquet
The easiest place to add color into your wedding is in your bouquet. Rather than going with a classic white and greenery bouquet, don’t be afraid to mix and match colorful wildflowers with pops of yellows, pinks, oranges and even blues. If you can’t find the right flowers to make your colorful bouquet, consider taking a DIY approach and using paper or fabric flowers.
2. Create a colorful ceremony backdrop
Whether you choose to decorate an alter with brightly colored flowers, drape some patterned fabric, or get fun and flirty with pom-poms and tissue paper, your ceremony is the perfect place to add some unexpected color. Plus, imagine how special your first kiss with your new spouse will look in photographs when a rainbow of bright colors surrounds you.
3. Jazz up your stationery
The stationery at your wedding—place cards, programs and menus—offer a great opportunity for subtle pops of color. Don’t be afraid to go non-traditional and use paper and type fonts that enhance your bright color scheme.
4. Make a multi-colored centerpiece
Obviously, centerpieces are where your decorating skills can really get a chance to shine—and they also contain multiple options for incorporating color. Thanks to their height and graceful shape, orchids are popular choices for wedding centerpieces, but did you know you can find dyed varieties of orchids for even more bright color? Dyed orchids come in a range of colors, including bright pinks, oranges and even blues.
5. Dress your bridal party in bright colors
You may be wearing white, but the members of your bridal party are the perfect colorful accessories to lead you down the aisle. Consider selecting brightly colored dresses or adding colorful accents to dresses of a more muted color. On the other side of the aisle, your groomsmen can don brightly colored ties or boutonnieres. Remember, not everyone has to match!
6. Design a colorful dessert table
Since frosting can be dyed any color, your dessert table is a blank canvas for lots of bright color. Regardless of whether you go with a traditional tiered cake or an assortment of miniature desserts—like macaroons, cupcakes and cookies—you can work with your pastry chef to design a sweet and colorful display that will have your guests drooling.
Your wedding is a happy occasion and your color scheme should match that happiness. And with all the options to incorporate bright colors, there’s no reason your wedding can’t be the multicolored vision you want it to be.
