I’m excited today. I haven’t done a colour scheme post in a while. Today, at the request of a reader who is planning her wedding for later this year, you are going to see lots of bright and cheery yellow. Isn’t that perfect to brighten up your Friday afternoon?
My favourite thing about yellow weddings is that you can use my favourite flower, the calla lily, in yellow! I had over 200 calla lilies at my wedding (but they had to be all white . And then there is so many other beautiful flowers you can use.
So today I’m using two amazing weddings as the basis for my inspiration. A yellow and white wedding from Wedding Concepts and a yellow and black wedding from Wedding Obsession. They are both stunning weddings and you should definitely check out all the amazing photos.
Wow once I started looking around for yellow ideas, I got overwhelmed. If you are considering a yellow wedding scheme I would recommend doing a search on Google images. So many amazing ideas. So here we go!

In addition to black and white, yellow goes beautifully with a number of other colours, include royal blue (as seen above), red, peach and grey. I love the beautiful contract between the lemon yellow sashes and royal blue dresses above. And what about the simple fan idea or invitations or programs (there is DIY instructions on the source site).
If you are thinking about a softer blue and yellow colour scheme you should check out Prima Donna Bride’s blue and yellow inspiration board.

I am totally in love with this polka dot dress. I couldn’t imagine polka dot’s looking so amazing. It would certainly make for fun bridesmaids dresses (or if you are a extremely adventurous and daring bride, why not wear such a dress yourself?). And of course if you are thinking yellow and black, sunflower are a simple and inexpensive way to go for flowers.
Now if you like the polka dot dress there is a cake you MUST check out. (The source won’t allow me to post it here but it’s just a click away). Its totally amazing, I actually can’t begin to describe it so just click here and see it for yourself.

I love this cake, so simple and stunning at the same time (and it goes so well with the feminine ruffled bridesmaids dress). Oh I totally heart the flower girl with her white sash. Check out the aisle decor with orange slices, such a great idea for a yellow wedding. And how about the bridesmaid in their totally wearable outfits – wow.

Personally I don’t think this needs commentary
Now brides-to-be, I would love to save you some time. Leave a comment telling me what your colour scheme and/or theme is and I will see if I can post some inspiration to help you as you plan.
