A watercolor wedding theme is one of our favorites! It’s so beautiful and romantic and absolutely perfect for creating an unforgettable wedding day. Whether you’re aiming for a boho chic wedding style, a garden wedding theme or simply want a naturally beautiful look, we have some great watercolor ideas for you.


Let’s begin with paper…

Just like any watercolor masterpiece, the first thing you need is paper. We’ve gathered several ideas for incorporating watercolor into the wedding stationery and paper accessories. The Plant a Heart Tags are a creative way to incorporate watercolor into guests’ wedding favors while watercolor place cards add a touch of artistry to every place setting.

The most important piece of stationery though is also the most stunning. Watercolor wedding invitations are some of the most gorgeous invitations out there. Whether you love the vibrant colors, the artistic look or the sheer simplicity, watercolor wedding invitations capture it all. We’ve shown the Ethereal Garden wedding invitation because it complements this garden-inspired look beautifully.

Continue the look with your flowers.

Focusing in on flowers is the perfect way to achieve the watercolor wedding theme of your dreams! Whatever flowers you choose, make sure they are available in the sweet pastels and faded hues you’ve chosen for your wedding decorations. We’ve shown a classic look of pinks and reds but you can certainly dive into greens, blues, oranges and purples. Choose whatever colors your hearts desire.

Place those flowers everywhere. You can create elaborate table centerpieces like we’ve shown here or something a little subtler. Either way, the colors will shine their way into the hearts of all your wedding guests. Don’t forget to add simpler versions of your floral arrangements to other areas of your ceremony and reception, like the ceremony chairs or pews, the wedding cake and the guest book table.

Color your bridal party beautiful.

We simply cannot get enough of watercolor bridesmaid dresses. Go bold with a floral patterned dress or go for a classic watercolor look with dresses in different shades of the same color. If you go classic, we highly recommend shopping David’s Bridal for bridesmaid dresses. They have the best selection of dresses available in a variety of colors, including different shades of the same color.

Let’s not neglect the guys in your wedding party. Give them an extra special touch of watercolor with a special boutonniere. You might even find ties or vests to complement your watercolor wedding theme.
