Yellow Wedding Theme – Real Weddings

A yellow wedding theme is so bight and sunny it’s guaranteed to warm the hearts of your wedding guests. I’ve recently been working on a couple of summer weddings that have had a yellow wedding theme, and here are some of the wedding decorations I used in those weddings.

A Sunflower Wedding Theme

It’s an easy handtied posy bouquet to create as long as you use sunflowers that are not too large and heavy.

Below in the photo you can see how I carried on the sunflower wedding theme to the table arrangements, creating tall wedding centerpieces by arranging the sunflowers with long strands of steel grass and fatsia leaves at the neck of the vases.

The yellow color theme was coordinated through to the table linen by tying yellow satin ribbon to the place setting cards on the napkins. I’ve also found these great little sunflower wedding favors, which would look perfect on the wedding table (photo below left).

Natural Garden Flowers

Wild and natural wedding flowers are very popular right now and in the photo (above right) you can see how I have created this very natural wedding bouquet to fit with the brides yellow wedding theme. The bride wanted a bouquet that looked just like it had been picked from an English summer garden. So I used alstromeria, snap dragons, roses, chrysanthemum daisies and freesias to fit with her theme.

Yellow Wedding Theme – Accessories

The box is decorated with the marigold flower, which would look perfect on the wedding table for a yellow wedding theme.

These favor boxes hold seeds that guests can take home to plant in their own garden, which also fits in perfectly with the wild natural garden look and feel. When the flowers appear the following year in your family and friends gardens they will be reminded of your happy wedding day.

The groom wore a rose and freesia buttonhole (photo below left) that coordinated with the yellow wedding theme. The great thing about yellow flowers is they will always stand out even on a dark black suit.

I also love these yellow wedding invitations (photo above right), the color of the invitation is perfect and the flower illustrations in the background link with the overall wedding theme. Sending out wedding invitations in your wedding colors give your guests a true taste of what’s to come.

Here you can see how I have placed fresh yellow rose petals in a glass vase, guests can help themselves to a handful to throw at the happy couple.

Yellow rose petals are going to look stunning in those all-important wedding photos. You won’t miss this vibrant color falling from the sky.

Yellow Wedding Decorations

Staying with the natural garden look and yellow wedding theme, I created low wedding centerpieces that featured flowers similar to those used in the bridal bouquet.

These wedding centerpieces are really popular because you can take the flower bouquets out of the vases after the wedding and give them away as gifts. Here is what the bride said about this in the ‘Thank You’ card she sent me:

“The vases particularly were a big hit for those lucky enough to take a bouquet home”.

You can see in the photo how I added a yellow ribbon to the center of the vase to give even more color. Adding ribbon to wedding decorations is an easy an effective way to link your color theme.

Here you can see how I’ve swaged lengths of soft ruscus to a handrail and decorated it with yellow bows, it’s amazing how the simplest wedding decoration can look really pretty when you link the wedding color theme to it.
