Without further ado, here are 16 ways you can incorporate color into your wedding day!
1). Choose A Vibrant Theme
If you want your wedding to be bold and bright, yet tasteful, consider embracing a theme! From fiesta to luau, Arabian nights, disco, casino, carnival, and more, there are so many great wedding themes to choose from. By beginning the wedding planning process with a theme selection, you’ll have a much easier time making decisions along the way.
2). The Bride Can Wear Color!
Gone are the days where a bride is covered in white from head to toe. If you want to wear a colorful wedding gown, go for it! After all, it’s your big day. If you’re going for something more subtle, wear a colorful headpiece, some fun jewelry, or a bold pair of heels. Don’t forget your “something blue”!
3). Make Your Groom Stand Out
You want your hubby to stand out from his groomsmen, right?! Consider putting your groom in a colored jacket. Emerald, crimson, navy, and turquoise make head-turning jacket colors.
4). Mix & Match Bridesmaid Dresses
More and more couples are loosening the strings in terms of wedding party attire. Give your bridesmaids some general color guidelines and let them pick a gown they love! Not only will this make sure they feel comfortable on the wedding day itself, but they’re also much more likely to wear the dress again in the future.
5). Give The Fellas Some Flare
Groomsmen attire can also be jazzed up! Find fun patterned ties and pocket squares. Brighten up traditional boutonnieres with berries and ribbon. You need to get your groomsmen a gift anyway, right? How about a fun pair of socks?
6). Use Props For Photos
There are lots of colorful props you and your wedding party can use to liven up your photos. From handheld smoke bombs to cheerful bouquets, sun umbrellas, jumbo balloons with fringe string, there are lots of fun ways to add color to your wedding photos!
7). Go Big With The Florals
Flowers can turn any space into a fairytale! If you want to add color to your wedding day, one of the easiest ways to do so is with bright floral arrangements. When you meet with your florist, show them some inspirational Pinterest photos. You can’t go wrong with peonies, roses, or ranunculuses!
8). Surprise Guests At The Ceremony
Want to “wow” your guests from the moment they walk into the ceremony space? Go alternative with the seating arrangements. For an eclectic look, rent a variety of chair types and add colorful pillows and throws. Line the aisle with lanterns decorated with bright flowers, ribbon, and candlesticks. Go wild with the ceremony backdrop to create a one-of-a-kind setting. Flower-filled arches and balloon garlands are always show stoppers! Even simply draping bright-colored fabric can easily create a statement!
9). End With A Bang
After your officiant pronounces you husband and wife, conclude the ceremony with a bang! Have your guests toss colorful rose petals or pop some biodegradable confetti cannons. If you’re tying the knot outside, consider a firework display!
10). Perk Up The Place Settings
Have fun with your reception decor! Add vibrant tablecloths, runners, napkins, and chargers to each table. Rent colored drinking glasses or get creative with your escort cards. Have your florist create a beautiful arrangement with flowers and candles.
11). Dessert Display
Ditch the all-white cake and ask your baker for something more fun! If you’re feeling fancy, go for a dessert display with colorful delicacies. There are tons of adorable bright-colored cake toppers on Etsy that you can customize.
12). Serve A Signature Drink
Consider serving a signature drink! At your planning meeting, ask your bartender for vibrant ideas. From blue lagoons to mai tais, mimosas, and more, there are tons of cheerful colored drinks to serve to your guests. Be sure to get some fun-colored straws or monogrammed koozies to add to the bar! You can also set up a garnish station for guests to decorate their beverages with orange slices, maraschino cherries, fruit kabobs, paper umbrellas, and more!
13). Have A Festive Photo Booth
Want your guests to have a fun activity besides dancing? Consider a photo booth! Make the space vibrant and fun with a sequin backdrop or a balloon garland. Add some comical props to guarantee some hilarious keepsake photos.
14). Say “Yes” To Live Entertainment
Live entertainment can turn a typical wedding into a celebration your guests won’t soon forget! From an upbeat band to stuntmen on stilts, jugglers, dancers, and more, there are tons of live entertainment options to make your reception unforgettable. Take it a step further and offer your guests LED foam sticks or glow-in-the-dark accessories.
15). Gift A Cheerful “Thank You”
Make your favors a cheerful token of appreciation! Consider gifting mini succulents in colorful clay pots, beautifully wrapped candy, jars of honey decorated with fabric, or mini bottles of champagne painted with glitter!
16). When In Doubt, Add Confetti
Looking for other ways to add some fun color to your wedding? When it doubt, sprinkle a little confetti on the welcome tables and around the wedding cake or buffet.
