The Yellow Wedding Theme Explained

Are you considering a yellow wedding theme? Wonderful – this is an uplifting and fun theme to work with.

A yellow theme will work to create many different atmospheres. The most obvious one being a summer feel but you can also use yellow to convey a country theme.

You can build the theme around the yellow and white combination of daisy’s to have a youthful carefree atmosphere.

Some wedding theme ideas to incorporate are:

* Yellow and green checked table runners over crisp white linen
* White washed wooden picture frames with numbers printed on yellow paper
* Daisys on your cake, in your hair and in your bouquet

For a rustic country feel, how about serving hors d’oeuvres from the back of a vintage pick up truck. You can borrow the truck from a nearby farm. The more beat up, the more authentic the feel. Line the truck bed with white linen over milk crates of different heights to create visual appeal. Then accent with yellow patterned linen and wild flowers.

You could use mason jars with yellow ribbons tied around them and filled with locally grown wild flowers.

For yellow wedding favors you could use mini Ball jars filled with locally preserved treats like honey, lemon jam, or marmalade.

My favorite yellow wedding theme idea is to set up an old-fashioned lemonade stand on a lawn during your cocktail hour. You can serve straight lemonade or spike it as needed. Not only will your guests have tons of fun remembering childhood attempts at running their own stand, you can save a few bucks by limited your drink menu.

Pass hors d’oeuvres on trays adorned with marigolds to keep your country theme going.

If you want a more formal feel to your yellow wedding theme, consider incorporating gray into the scheme. Gray, yellow and white will create a crisp clean atmosphere with just enough sophistication to still be fun.

The startling contrast between the colors is very cutting edge. I recommend using yellow roses as your accent flower for cake decor, table decorations and in your bouquet.

Have your cake designer make a fondant wedding cake with bold gray stripes touched off with delicate yellow flowers or ribbons.

Keep your linen crisp white and use yellow and gray accents on the table toppers.

Consider dressing the groom and the groomsmen in gray tuxedos with yellow rose boutonnieres.

This color theme works well in white chapel weddings and indoor receptions that have a lot of natural light. Reserve this theme for daytime weddings as the gray can become too dark and somber in the evening.
