A Sunny Introduction
The inspiration for this pretty palette is our Painted Sunflowers Seal and Send Invitation. This watercolor floral design is a favorite for rustic-themed weddings. The nature-inspired color combination feels as warm and sunshiny as summer day.
Paint Your Day
Creating a wedding-day look that blends this palette together is simple! Let’s start with that pretty shade of yellow. Using goldenrod as your main color is a bold move and we love it!
You might be inclined to dress your bridesmaids in yellow but we’d prefer that instead, you let sunflowers be the star. Sunflowers are such an ideal flower to use in weddings. They’re sturdy and can hold up to heat without wilting. The blooms are big which means you need fewer of them to make a statement. To top it off, they are so affordable, particularly in late summer to late autumn.
Use sunflowers in everything from your bridesmaid’s bouquets to reception centerpieces. We love a sunflower-lined ceremony aisle too. Decorating your cake with sunflower blooms is so simple too! Drench your day in these sunny blooms; you won’t regret it!
Next up – burgundy. Now this is a color your bridesmaids will love! Dress them in burgundy gowns. This on-trend hue is beautiful and those sunflower bouquets will pop against them. The guys can wear matching burgundy ties for a cute and coordinated look.
Our other accent color is mocha. The center of your sunflowers will tie this color in. Another natural way to bring out this color is through using wood grain details. Using wooden chairs at your ceremony and undressed tables at your reception will lend a rustic feel to your day. If that’s not an option, stack slices of tree trunks in the middle of your reception tables and top them with a vase of sunflowers.
Lastly, add a bit of sparkle! A brassy gold is the perfect way to add interest to your palette. Think of this neutral color as an accessory to your wedding day. It’s an important addition, but don’t go overboard. Choose gold jewelry. Create gold foil-stamped cocktail napkins. You can even use gold flatware.
