Yellow is the colour of sunshine, warmth, and happiness – don’t you love it?!  Yellow isn’t a common colour in weddings, but that doesn’t mean you can’t feature it in your wedding beautifully.  It’s all about how you pair it!  If you want yellow to be the star of the show, combine it thoughtfully with other colours and little details to align with your wedding style.

Let’s see how yellow can be included in the best way for you in “Yellow By Style: Using Yellow In Your Wedding Stationery & Beyond!” with me – Natalie from A Tactile Perception

The most obvious way to use this fresh vibrant colour is to pair it with other bright colours.  You might choose an analogous colour like orange (remember the colour wheel?!), and then a complementary colour like blue, and bring out all these tones in your flowers, table settings, wedding party dresses, and stationery.  Don’t forget a bright yellow wedding sign!

Soft yellows are a lovely colour to help convey a delicate colour palette in a fine art style of wedding.  Pair light lemon yellow with grey and dusky pink.  Use classic flowers in your bouquet and handmade cotton paper with a deckled edge in your wedding invitations.

Go black and white – and yellow!  Big bold black and white really pops when you add a bright yellow.  This one is for couples who want an elegant and sophisticated look, but want to add more personality.  Choose white anemone flowers, layered paper stacks in your wedding invitations, black tapered candles, and black lace on your white wedding dress.  Make it even more contemporary by adding lots of textural greenery.

Have fun on your wedding day!  Pick four or five pastel and jewel colours including yellow and watch them all come together in perfect harmony.  You’ll want to add disco balls, a lolly station, ribbon on your bouquet, and glitter – lots of glitter.  Ask your guests to all dress in their favourite colours and dance the night away!

Yellow in a minimalist theme is one of the easier ones.  Yellow and ivory wedding invitations set the tone for your clean and crisp summer wedding.  Use lots of white, with contrasting mustard napkins on your reception tables.  Add interest with textural ivory table runners and dried elements in your bouquet.  This colour scheme is refined yet warm.

And there you have it!  Yellow is a beautiful colour, and it really can be part of so many different palettes and themes.  Its mood will change depending on what shade you use, so don’t feel restricted with how you can incorporate it into your wedding.  Talk to your wedding suppliers and hear their best ideas for using yellow in your own wedding too.
