Wedding Theme: Over the Rainbow!

With St. Patty’s day approaching I couldn’t think of a better wedding theme to feature than an “Over the Rainbow” theme.  If you can’t decide on your wedding colors why not use all the colors of the rainbow?  At first, you may be a little scared that a rainbow themed wedding would be cheesy.  I guess that depends on your taste and how far you want to take the theme.  I think small hints of rainbow can be beautiful and very romantic.

If you are having an “Over the Rainbow” theme the bridesmaid dresses, groomsmen attire and flowers are a great way to show off all the colors of the rainbow.

Have each bridesmaid choose a different color of the rainbow and choose coordinating bouquets.  I think it makes for original and standout pictures.

You can have the groomsmen match each girl with a different colored tie or just have the color they wear come out in their boutonnieres.

Since this theme has so many colors, I would suggest keeping the linens for the reception very simple.  That way the flowers can pop on the tables and speak for themselves.

The cake can be very traditional with a variety of rainbow colors once the cake is cut.  This makes for a great presentation for the guests.

A dessert or candy buffet is also a subtle yet great way to use your color scheme.

Obviously, I know this theme is not for every bride!! This theme has to fit your personality in order to work.  I just want to make sure you open your eyes to all of the wonderful themes and possibilities that can come out of one idea… the simple idea of a rainbow!

Happy Planning and Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
