A great idea for summer brides is a spin-off of the ever popular ombre trend – watercolors! The trend has been circulating for some time now, but it is never more popular (and appropriate) than in the heat of the summer. This trend is romantic, whimsical, and most of all flexible. You can incorporate this trend into almost anywhere on your wedding day. This wedding trend lends itself perfectly to day weddings and boho themes. Let’s look at some of our favorite places to splash some watercolor into your wedding day.
This is probably the most popular aspect of a watercolor themed wedding. Paper drenched in any colour of the rainbow instantly looks fresh, inviting, and fun. Etsy is full of vendors who can pull this off without invoking the tie-dye gods. To use a bright color into your palette, pick one color in varying shades. For example, this electric blue invitation.
Utilizing the entrance as a way to introduce your guests to a theme at your reception is perfect. Watercolor escort cards are sure to squeeze an “oooo” out of your guests.
As with any color palette the bridesmaid’s dresses are an integral part of portraying it. Choose floral prints and swirling colors to emulate the watercolour designs. Dresses made of chiffon or silk can blow in the breeze at your outside reception or ceremony. They will give off the same movement as the watercolor stationary.
Flowers can be tricky when you have this theme. However, these styled shoots can provide you with some inspiration. Flowers that are dip dyed to have the darkest shade at the top of the petals will showcase your theme.
Similar to an ombre cake, the watercolor cake should have colours that melt into one another. These look so gorgeous – we don’t even want to cut into them.
