Sunny and vibrant or pale and romantic, the color yellow can be used in a myriad of ways in your wedding celebration. Gather inspiration from these real weddings that feature a yellow color palette.
These striped ring pillows are the work of groom Tim's mother. On top of them sits a yellow-and-orange bouquet.
The groom, Mickey, designed a small comic-strip-style wedding invitation, illustrating a brief history of how the couple met and fell in love, as well as what guests could expect at the wedding. With a color palette of navy and yellow, the stationery also featured a perforated reply card for guests to rip off and return.
A close family friend, Els Shine, who is an incredible gardener, grew many of the rainbow-colored dahlias and zinnias used in the centerpieces at Vanessa and Mickey's wedding in Rehoboth, Massachusetts. The arrangements were supplemented with even more blooms from the local Four Town Farm.
Each guest's place is outlined in chalk on a roll of black paper; red artists' tape secures the corners to the tablecloth. Single-flower arrangements in yellow, red, and white rest in milk bottles, latte bowls, and ceramic tumblers. Votive candles illuminate paper bags trimmed with scalloping shears.
Hundreds of buttons scattered throughout the site are the result of a crafting night held before the wedding by bride Vanessa's sister-in-law, Kim. Some of the buttons convey messages about Vanessa and Mickey, and others have hearts drawn by their niece Sabina. Mickey designed a few motifs for the wedding, and Kim wrote "I Love You" in different languages (including "Mena Tanda Wena," in Zulu). Guests were invited to wear the buttons and keep them as mementos.
Not wanting to put her bridesmaids into dresses they'd never wear again, bride Vanessa came up with a novel idea. She'd had her eye on 1950s-inspired dresses with poofy, embroidered petticoats from Etsy seller MissBrache, Inc. Custom Clothing. She worked with the designer to create reversible yellow dresses.
Yellow and white alpaca wool twine wraps around the save-the-date, as a play on the location, Snow Moon Ranch, a Suri alpaca and llama farm. Packaged in pillow envelopes with custom llama postage from Zazzle, the small spool-style card lists the basic details of the wedding and the couple's wedding website.
