Fill your nuptials with brilliant pops of color and a touch of whimsy with a watercolor wedding theme. Each soft shade blends together to produce a truly elegant and vibrant big day. Combine soft pinks, deep purples and golden yellows for the perfect spring or summer wedding palette, or use rusty oranges and bright reds for autumn nuptials. The theme can even be used for winter weddings by blending cool blues and soft grays. No matter what shades you choose, your watercolor wedding is sure to look as bright and beautiful as your future:


Wedding invitations
Show off your love for all things watercolor with the right invitations. This Rock Star Real Glitter Invitation reads “Love” at the top in shimmering white letters, and the background features a harmonious blend of either purples and blues, reds and oranges or pinks and yellows. Select a photo of you and your fiance for the backside of the invitation to really show off your personality as a couple.

Colorful wedding cake
You can be as subtle or as bold as you would like with a watercolor wedding cake. Have a vibrant floral pattern decorate the side of your cake or opt for a subtle ombre watercolor cake that uses pale hues for just a touch of color. You can even mix and match the tiers, alternating between watercolor and metallics.

Vibrant bouquets
Watercolors blend a number of different hues to create a stunning effect. You can do the same with your wedding bouquet – arrange a few of your favorite shades together, and don’t be afraid to use contrasting colors. A bright blue, for instance, would stand out against a vibrant pink or purple. You can also go for a more subtle impact, using blooms that are all in the same color family. Place three vases of different blooms on your reception tables for an eclectic centerpiece.
