The Canary Hotel rooftop is one of my absolute favorite venues in all of Santa Barbara! It’s the only venue with a sweeping 360 degree view of our beautiful Riviera town and everything from the staff, to the food, to the gorgeous Spanish style architecture is absolutely perfect! I’ve shot countless weddings there and every single time, I am left with a feeling of complete gratitude for the beauty around me!

Yellow wedding: design and photo

Juicy and positive yellow color perfectly creates an atmosphere of joy and comfort. It is popular at any time of the year and is suitable for both outdoor and indoor celebrations. Decorating a wedding in bright sunny colors, as a rule, is chosen by cheerful and creative personalities. At such a celebration, as a rule, a welcoming and friendly atmosphere reigns, as well as positive thinking and hospitality. For more information about the design and organization of a yellow wedding, read on. nine0003

In this article you will learn everything about the yellow wedding:

  • decoration of the hall;
  • decor;
  • floristry;
  • photo;
  • attire of the bride, groom and guests;

Ideas for decorating the hall at a wedding in yellow

In all traditions, yellow is undoubtedly considered a symbol of the sun, wealth and happiness. Many people believe that it brings good luck in new endeavors. Carefully selected decor and color combinations will help to arrange a truly stylish and spectacular color wedding. Depending on the chosen design, you can create an informal or strict atmosphere. nine0003

For example, sunflowers and lemons can be used for a yellow wedding. This design looks stylish and cozy at the same time. Using a combination of lemon and blue hues will give the holiday a more austere tone.

In general, the base color goes well with white, silver, purple, blue and mint. Indoors, a combination of rich yellow and dark gray looks elegant. Also, you can make a gentle and discreet design in light sand colors. nine0003

St. Petersburg wedding photographers

As a drapery for walls, tables and chairs, a combination of different fabrics has proven itself well. Chairs can be dressed in special covers and decorated with lush bows of bright canary color. Fruit vases look good on festive tables, an excellent choice is lemons, apples, pears, plums and grapes. An interesting decor option can be multi-level compositions of flowers and fruits.

Lemonade in transparent carafes can be served as a main drink. Bouquets of golden tulips, arranged throughout the hall, will add coziness. Also, in the design of the wedding hall in yellow, various paper garlands, candles and rose petals look appropriate.

Yellow wedding decor and color palette

In color weddings, all the details play a big role. The holiday turns out to be whole when everything is decorated and decorated in a single style. Usually, the first impression of the upcoming celebration is formed by invitation cards. They are handed out about a month in advance and inform guests about the date and place of the event. Invitations printed on high-quality white paper with yellow details look good. They can be decorated with decorative buttons, feathers, lace. nine0003

If there are many guests, boarding cards can be useful. It is desirable to beat them in a general style. A miniature pot of greens and a yellow name flag inserted into it can serve as a basis.

For a festive photo shoot, you need to prepare balloons, umbrellas, emoticons, signs or letters in advance. All these elements are best kept in a single yellowish color. The resulting frames will retain memories and emotions of the wedding day for a long time. nine0003

Flowers at a yellow wedding

The effectiveness of a colorful wedding largely depends on floristry. In addition to the general color, fresh flowers will fill the room with an incredible aroma. In the summer, as the main flower at a yellow wedding, you can choose a sunflower. It is good if there is an opportunity to use it everywhere – both in a bouquet with a boutonniere, and in decorating tables and the hall.

Asters, tulips, dahlias and roses also look good in a wedding bouquet. They can be diluted with snow-white flowers or green leaves. Saffron-colored lilies will add aristocracy to the look of the bride. A bouquet of daisies or gerberas is suitable for a gentle and sophisticated look. nine0003

The groom’s boutonniere is usually made similar to the bride’s composition, so that the couple looks harmonious even in details.

Newlyweds attire and dress code for wedding guests in yellow

Creating a yellow wedding, the bride does not have to dress up in a canary outfit. She can choose a chic puffy straw-colored dress. Or dilute the traditional white dress with yellow details – shoes, a bouquet and jewelry. Couples who prefer outrageous can choose lemon outfits. The groom in an amber vest and the same socks can look stylish. Some creative men even prefer yellow laces on their wedding shoes. Next to such a groom, the bride can also dress in a sunny dress. nine0003

Bridesmaids also don’t have to wear egg dresses. This color is not for everyone. You can limit yourself to the same dresses in dark blue or graphite. And combine them with the same yellowish elements – shoes, flowers in the hair, bouquets or belts.

It is better to think over the dress code for guests in advance and warn about it in invitations. However, you should not oblige everyone to wear the same type of costumes. It is good if there is an opportunity at the beginning of the holiday to give friends and family some of the same accessories, for example, satin ribbons, brooches or flowers. With their help, guests will be able to complement their appearance and feel united by one event. nine0003

Yellow wedding cake

The traditional end of a wedding celebration is often a sweet table. At a yellow wedding, honey desserts, rosettes with honey, citrus jam, lemon cakes and, of course, a wedding cake are appropriate.

It can be topped with sun shade fondant, lemon cream or edible decorations. Modern confectionery art allows you to create a sweet masterpiece of almost any shape and with any design. nine0003

When choosing a cake for a yellow wedding, it is best to be guided by the general wedding style and your own taste!

Yellow wedding: design tips.

When choosing a shade for decorating a wedding, you need to understand that the mood of your celebration will depend on it. If you want to add warmth and lightness to the atmosphere of the holiday, then pay attention to the yellow color. It will be especially useful for small chamber events. The design in such a sunny color will definitely give all the invitees a large number of positive bright emotions. nine0003

# Wedding style, decor, floristry

Yellow wedding: choosing a shade

Spectacular yellow certainly pleases with the richness of its palette, which is why choosing a particular tone can puzzle you a little. Here are some shades that are great for a yellow wedding:

  • Mustard. This color looks most harmonious in the design of an autumn wedding or celebration in country style. It can be diluted with chocolate or wine tones. nine0010
  • Canary. One of the brightest shades, which is best combined with white or beige for softening.
  • Corn. It is distinguished by a special depth and richness. It is most advantageously combined with delicate shades of green and beige. Often, corn is used in a palette with blue, which creates a stunning contrast.
  • Pastel yellow. Suitable for creating a more delicate and soft atmosphere at a wedding, especially when combined with other muted natural shades. nine0010
How to combine yellow with other colors

When choosing such an intense shade for a celebration, keep in mind that guests can simply get tired of its excessive amount. To make the design harmonious, yellow is best used in combination with other tones.

The combination of yellow with white or light green is considered the most natural. For a country or western style wedding, a yellow-brown palette is the most suitable. Of the bright and spectacular combinations, yellow-blue or yellow-pink colors should be mentioned. nine0003

Sunny color is often used as an accent in black and white design. However, be careful when combining yellow with hot pink or black. Such combinations create a great contrast, from which guests can simply get tired eyes.

Yellow wedding decoration

Most often this color is used to decorate spring and summer weddings. Therefore, the main emphasis in decorating a banquet hall can be done on floristry. To emphasize the lightness of color, it is recommended to choose a restaurant with a veranda or terrace as a place of celebration, or arrange a banquet in nature. nine0003

Tablecloths, chair covers and other textiles must be white or in a light tone. Yellow is better to emphasize details such as napkins, bows, patterns on dishes. Wooden decor elements and furniture, yellow draperies, vases filled with lemons, ribbons and balls will fit well into the style of the celebration. Tables should be richly decorated with flower bouquets.

White and yellow small roses, orchids, mimosas, crocuses, freesias, sunflowers are perfect for floral arrangements. Of the rarer flowers, plumeria and craspedia should be mentioned. However, ordinary daisies, daffodils and other field plants in yellow tones will create an equally warm romantic atmosphere. nine0003

Please note that wedding banquets in yellow are often combined with other themes. For example, a country wedding, decorated in a palette of mustard with brown and sand, will turn out to be very stylish. A celebration in the style of the 50s, emphasized by yellow outfits, accessories and details in the decor, will look no less bright.

Yellow wedding dress

A bride in a yellow dress will look very radiant and playful. The most important thing here is to choose a shade that emphasizes the complexion and hair. As a rule, brighter tones of yellow, such as lemon or canary, are suitable for short dresses with puffy skirts. In this outfit, the image of the girl will be slightly mischievous. And such classic long models as an empire or a mermaid look best in a delicate white and yellow color. nine0003

For a yellow wedding, it is quite possible to get by with a traditional white dress. But it will definitely need to be emphasized with colored details: a belt, hairpins, a hat, a veil, a bouquet. Otherwise, the image runs the risk of going unnoticed among the yellow decorations. Jewelry made of gold will also come in handy.

Another option is to dress your girlfriends in yellow outfits. Thus, you will be able to create the desired contrast and stand out against their background in a snow-white dress. nine0003

Wedding in yellow: groom’s suit

Few grooms are ready to go to such a bold experiment and wear a canary suit. But if you still decide, then pick up a white or beige shirt under it and complement the image with suspenders if you wish.

But if you are an adherent of the classic style, then give preference to a suit in light colors: gray, brown, beige. You will need to make the main emphasis on bright yellow accessories: a tie, bow tie, neckerchief, boutonniere or boots.
