Incorporating watercolors into your wedding invitations really shows your artistic style. The romantic blend of colors complements well against the text announcing your marriage. A personal favorite of mine is the Watercolor Roses – Blue – Invitation. It has just the perfect touch of color and delicate design to set the scene for your big day.
Watercolor fever comes in handy when it comes to decorating your reception space. From linens to chairs and table wear, this trend is super versatile. Green Wedding Shoes recommended the idea of a watercolor painted menu and even a blend of colors for the place mats. To pull the whole look together, consider choosing one of your favorite colors you find in the watercolor and use that for your napkins for a completed feel!
Surprisingly enough, this theme can even be worked into your sweet confection! Talk to your bakery and see if a watercolor technique can be used on your cake to make it look like a beautiful piece of art that would be worthy of Monet. Pinterest has an array of watercolor cakes to check out if you’re looking for inspiration.
For your bouquet, consider tying together a blend of all your favorite colors to create a watercolor type feel. You could also opt to have your bridal party all carry different shades of blooms for an even larger array of stunning colors. As for the centerpieces at your reception, one of my favorite ideas came from Green Wedding Shoes. Instead of one centerpiece, they arranged three separate floral arrangements – all of which were different colors and styles!
