Embrace the Rainbow: A Guide to Planning a Bright and Colorful Floral Wedding

While classic ivory and blush weddings are always stunning, there's a growing trend for couples to embrace bold colors and vibrant blooms on their special day. A bright and colorful floral-inspired wedding is a fantastic way to express your unique personalities and create a truly unforgettable atmosphere.

Choosing Your Color Palette

The first step to planning a colorful floral wedding is to select a color palette. This will guide your flower choices, attire, and décor. Here are some tips for choosing a vibrant color scheme:

  • Draw inspiration from nature. Look to fields of wildflowers, tropical rainforests, or a vibrant sunset for color combinations that work well together.
  • Consider the season. Spring and summer weddings tend to lend themselves to lighter colors, while fall and winter weddings can incorporate richer jewel tones.
  • Don't be afraid to experiment. There are no hard and fast rules when it comes to color! Choose colors that you love and that reflect your personalities as a couple.


Flowers are the heart of a floral-inspired wedding. When selecting your blooms, keep your color palette in mind and consider incorporating a variety of shapes, sizes, and textures. Here are some popular choices for colorful wedding flowers:

  • Roses (of course!): Roses come in a wide range of colors beyond the traditional red and white. Opt for coral, peach, or yellow roses to add a pop of color.
  • Lilacs: These fragrant spring blooms come in beautiful shades of purple and lavender.
  • Peonies: Peonies are known for their lush, romantic blooms. They come in a variety of colors, including pink, red, coral, and yellow.
  • Sunflowers: These cheerful flowers are perfect for a summer wedding. They add a touch of sunshine and whimsy to any arrangement.


Incorporate your color palette throughout your wedding décor. You can use colorful tablecloths, napkins, and chairs. String up colorful lights or paper lanterns to create a festive atmosphere. Floral centerpieces are a must-have, and you can also use flowers to decorate your ceremony arch, cake table, and guest book area.


The bride and groom can also get in on the colorful fun! The bride can choose a brightly colored wedding dress or incorporate colorful details into her accessories. The groom can wear a brightly colored suit or tie. The bridesmaids and groomsmen can also wear colorful dresses and suits.

Don't forget the details!

No detail is too small when it comes to planning a colorful wedding. You can incorporate your color palette into your wedding invitations, menus, and programs. You can also use colorful candles, place settings, and favors.

With a little planning and creativity, you can plan a bright and colorful floral wedding that is bursting with personality and joy. Your wedding day is a celebration of your love, so don't be afraid to let your colors shine!
