The wedding industry is no exception. Fun-loving couples are adopting the rainbow theme for a beautiful and unique wedding experience.

The Bridal Party

In our rainbow themed wedding, we see brides wearing a rainbow crown of flowers. Flowers of pastel pink, baby blue, light yellow and soft green are layered on the headpiece.

Brides can stick with white gowns or they can select a soft rainbow color. But, you can have the best of both worlds if you wear a white bridal gown with rainbow ribbons around the waist and flow down to the hem of the dress.

The bridesmaid’s area different story. Dress each of your bridesmaids in a different pastel color to represent the rainbow. Even in a more formal event, you can dress your bridesmaids in lovely evening gowns of soft rainbow colors.  You and they will carry rainbow bouquets. Groomsmen can support a rainbow cumberbund or vest. They can select a color for the bowtie.

You will need a backdrop for photos. Some people hang ribbons of rainbow colors from the ceiling to the floor. Or, you can work with your florist and make a rainbow wall of flowers. The bouquets will be in rainbow colors, so they will already know the type of flower and the color.

Centerpieces are rainbow colored candles. The various heights of the candles will form an arch. If your wedding venue has a lot of lights you may want to change the bulbs for colored bulbs of red, blue, green, and pink.

Cover the aisle you will be marching on with a rainbow rug.

Have sparkling rainbow ribbon tied to the chairs and hanging low on the backside.

Instead of having guest pelt you with rice as you are leaving the venue, give them containers of rainbow confetti. They will create a wall of rainbow colors for you to run through.
