Yellow Wedding Ideas

Yellow Wedding Ideas

Yellow is the color of cheerfulness, spontaneity, and sunshine. Coming in hues ranging from dusty blonde to bright gold, it complements shades of green, blue, pink, and purple, and looks wonderful on a white background. That’s why we see couples and designers using yellow wedding ideas when they want to add a joyful pop of color to fashions, florals and decor.

If you love yellow and want to incorporate it into your wedding color palette, here are 10 yellow wedding ideas that will help you get it done beautifully.

1.  Deck your bridal party out in yellow. Rich golds and soft pastel yellow all work when it comes to bridesmaids dresses. Golden tones can look gorgeous in any season while more muted hues work well in the hot days of summer (or winter if you’re in the Southern Hemisphere).

2.  Carry bouquets of yellow blooms. Black eyed Susans, roses, lilies, dahlias, and sunflowers are just some of the flowers that come in shades of yellow, and they all hold up well throughout your wedding day.
