Walking on Sunshine – Sunflower Wedding Theme – Moodboard and Styling Ideas

With the arrival of that big yellow ball in the sky comes welcome warmth and some inspiration for  a Sunflower Wedding Theme.

Yellow is a colour that is refreshing and uplifting.

It reminds us of sunshine and for most of us that lifts the spirits, and brings a little warmth to our hearts.

Sunflowers are a beautiful, bold vibrant flower that make a bit of a statement and can be used to amazing effect in a Big Day.

Sunflowers are associated with pride, sunshine and devotion, and also longetivity and thats always a pretty good combination to bring to a marriage.

As a prelude to youe event, the beautiful sunflower wedding theme  can be brought through in the invitations.

This can follow through on your On the day stationery of  Order of the day, menu, table plans and placecards.

Floristry plays a huge part in this theme being its inspiration and sunflowers with their vibrant yellow colouring will brighten any wedding table and will be a sunny addition to bridal bouquets, buttonholes, corsages and any other ceremony or reception decoration.

Other small touches to your reception venue could include yellow napkins, table runners or in the sashes of your chair seat covers.

If your wedding is a little more rustic, burlap is a great for runners and chair ties that can be accentuated with the little sunflowers as detail.

Sunflowers tied with twine is also beautiful as pew ends or tied to the sides of chairs to define your Wedding aisle.

For wedding attire, the yellow can be injected into ties, waistcoats and cummerbands and bridesmaids will look stunning in varied hues of yellow. Even the Bride could be daring and choose a sunshine inspired gown.

For favours, consider tasty treats such as lemon bonbons or lemon drops in sunflower accentuated boxes. Sunflower seed packets are also a wonderful and natural favour.

And then there is a the scrumptious cake – this can be simply decorated with similar floral adornment to co-ordinate with the rest of the wedding flowers, or it can be as simple or extravagent as you wish with sugar crafted flowers.

Cake pops and cupcakes are always a growd pleaser and make up their own little bouquet when presented together.
