Colorful Wedding Style

Colorful Wedding Style

While white weddings are always in vogue, colorful weddings stand out from the crowd and are ideal for couples with upbeat, vibrant personalities. At WBWP we love bright flowers, fabrics, and fashion, so we’re showing off some of our favorite color ideas to help you make your look more vivid and dramatic. Check out these bold dresses, cakes, confetti, and more, in beautiful, brilliant colors, starting with some eye-catching invitations, of course!

To begin making a colorful first impression, start with your envelopes. We love this tangerine paper

and this full floral invitation suite with a tropical flair!

Then turning to fashion, we think there's nothing like red dresses to raise some excitement, whether they're classically elegant

wonderfully retro

or a mix of designs and shades your bridesmaids choose to wear.

And when it comes to the guys, there is nothing more brilliant than a bright blue suit.

It goes without saying that you'll need some amazing shoes, like these ones made of luscious floral fabric

or these, that are handpainted to match your look.

Now, add some beautiful blooms like poppies, tulips, and fritallari

or red roses and blue delphinium to make your tabletop pop.

Or go all the way with your floral design and add an arbor dripping with roses in shades of purple, red, pink, and yellow

Serve it on a striking place setting

And if you want to be under the stars, choose a woodland space and brighten it up with floral tablecloths and sizzling summer colored linens.
