With so many colors of the rainbow how can you choose just one for your wedding? These days, you don’t have to! Having a rainbow wedding allows you to include the entire spectrum of colors! A Rainbow signifies the beauty after a storm but do you know how is this spectacle created? I’m sure it’s an optical & meteorological phenomenon that is caused by reflection of light in water droplets in the Earth’s atmosphere. This super amazing natural beauty then results in a spectrum of light appearing in the sky – usually taking the form of a multicolored arc.
Rainbow Wedding Dresses
The colors of a true rainbow are red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo & violet. Newton, in 1672, divided the spectrum into five main colors: red, yellow, green, blue & violet…he then later added orange & indigo. There are now seven main colors to go with the analogy to the number of notes in a musical scale. We love the idea of having each bridesmaid wearing a different colored dress according to the rainbow spectrum. Super cute!
Rainbow Wedding Flowers
Flowers come in many different shapes, sizes & colors. Rainbow weddings provide a smorgasbord of all kinds of flowers…and there’s not one single flower you couldn’t include in your bouquet!
The color pattern of a rainbow is actually less saturated than the color wheel yet this doesn’t stop bride from using big beautiful bold colors from the rainbow in their weddings. You could have each bridesmaid carrying a bouquet of flowers for each color of the rainbow or have bouquets with different colors of flowers intermixed.
Rainbow Wedding Cakes
Rainbows form a significant part of human culture…they appear frequently in mythology, in the arts & for gay pride. The rainbow is a natural phenomenon noted for its beauty & its place in the sky – why not place its beauty throughout your wedding & into your wedding cake! The decorations are truly up to the imagination. There are white cakes with small rainbow details and once you cut into the cake you see a rainbow marble cake! This is really cool! You can be bold or subtle with rainbow weddings.
Rainbow Wedding Attire
Rainbows are painted into works of art that are romantic & filled with landscapes and fleeting effects of light. Rainbow flags have a stereotype to represent gay pride, however, they are also used as a sign of a new era, of hope, or of social change. This representation of hope & starting a new life is a perfect theme to have when starting a completely new chapter in your life.
We love the idea of having a suits in an array of colors to express the rainbow theme, but if you are looking for something more subtle then maybe consider the boutonnieres to be rainbow colored or the cufflinks to be each color of the rainbow. The bridesmaids could also take a more bold or subtle approach to their rainbow attire. This picture of the rainbow dresses below are fabulous! And don’t forget the Rainbow sunglasses, they would be a great accessory for a photo booth!
Hope, love & change – Rainbows can represent new hope & new life. How do you feel about rainbow weddings? Would you take a bold approach or take the subtle road? Tell us what you think in the comments – we would love to hear your opinions!
